Equipped with all the tools to crush it.

Maybe you're just a freshman, but having the simple, yet stylish design of the Dakine 2000cu in Campus Large Backpack slung over your shoulders is sure to give your fellow students a different impression. The padded laptop-sleeve, organizer pocket, and fleece-lined sunglasses pocket keep all of your essentials safe and sound from excessive jostling as you sprint to your childhood psychology class that started 15 minutes ago, while the tough 600D polyester construction resists tearing if you just so happen to trip over your own feet during the frantic scurry. Oh, yeah, this pack also comes with an insulated cooler pocket, providing ice-cold hydration during whatever weekly intramurals you go with throughout undergrad, as well as a sixer of celebratory barley pops for when you graduate in four.

Awesome Dakine Backpacks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We absolutely love Dakine backpacks. My oldest son used his Dakine for 6 years before he wanted a change even though the backpack still looks good. My daughter has one and I know it will last for many years. So when my youngest son wanted a new backpack, I said I would only buy a Dakine. We bought 2 for him. They hold up to daily usage and look great. This was the first time we ordered anything from Backcountry and we were very happy with their prices and fast shipping.

Great Backpack for Commute

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this backpack on my bicycle commute. It is large, which is perfect because it can fit my lunchbox, raincoat, rain pants and bike helmet. Thus far it seems to be holding up really well!

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Comfortable backpack and good size for just about every activity. I love that the water bottle holders are deep (Only setback is that you cannot grab your water bottle without taking off the backpack). Insulated pocket is pretty small, but would work for 2 or 3 flat snacks like meat sticks or cliff bars. Soft sunglasses pocket on the top is clever. Straps around shoulders were comfortable to hike with and the across-the-chest strap is adjustable (which is super cool). I would recommend this pack!!

Wonderful backpack

Used it quite a bit up to this point and its held up nicely

Great backpack

It was bigger than I expected but that's a good thing. Not only is it perfect for carrying your laptop, it's also good for packing a few clothes of really whatever you want. Definitely recommended.

Unanswered Question

For the side pockets for water bottles I have a decently tall 40oz water bottle which is about 10.5 inches tall almost 11 inches. Is the side pockets tall enough so it doesn’t fall out? because with the backpack I have now have mesh pockets but it’s not tall enough so it falls out easy.

Excellent Backpack

Bought this for the new semester and I love it. Sturdy with plenty of room

Great pack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This really is a great pack. Good quality with lots of room, plenty of pockets, and a bunch of fun colors to choose from.

Great Backpack!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I purchased this for my dad, and he loves it. He wrote "I love the backpack I purchased. The deep pocket at the rear has plenty of room for my laptop, keyboard, mouse and notebook. I love the front pockets as they do not go too deep. So if I am putting my wallet, keys, cell phone, or glasses they are easy to get at when I unzip the pocket."

Awesome

I've got no complaints on this. It's incredibly comfortable and the chest strap secures down well. The cooler pouch is awesome and the glasses pouch is real convenient

Loving it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this backpack as a diaper bag/carry-on. It was perfect for what I was looking for. It is BIG for a day pack. The bag can fit a lot of stuff in it. I put bottles in the front cooler pocket, and the milk stayed cold for up to 6 hours (I didn't try longer than that). The materials are really high-quality and I think this bag will last me years. I'm a big fan.

quintessential school backpack

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got a couple of these as back-to-school gifts for our nephews and they're pretty stoked about the different compartments. Feels like it will hold up to their abuse and is a good size for elementary to middle school kids (not too big but plenty of room).

Good deal

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Functional backpack. Only four stars because the middle compartment is pretty useless as its only a few inches deep. Overall though a solid product for my needs.

High Quality Backpack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I use this backpack for school and it works great! A 2 inch and 1 inch binder plus 3 note books fit in the large pocket for me and there is still more room. The organizer pocket is less deep than I expected though. Also, the bottom of the backpack does not have any protection so you will have to be gentle with it so there won't be any holes. Other than that, it's great! I love the sleek designs they have. Will be buying more in the future.

A lot of pockets

Awesome backpack

This backpack is awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this backpack in the color "Stratum" back in 2014 for one of my kids for school and the backpack is sooooo good that I just bought 2 more of these: one in "Denim" and another in "Waycool". He has used the backpack for more than 2 years and it is still in great condition.
- This backpack is large and that's one of the reasons we love it. Perfect for school.
- It feels very comfortable even when it's full.
- The backpack is well organized and each pocket has the right size.
- The price is great for the quality of the backpack.
- The colors shown in the pictures are true.
This is one of the best backpacks I've bought.

Everything in its right place

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love love LOVE this pack. Lots to talk about so I'll dive right in -



1.) Storage Capacity. With the room inside this thing you no longer have to pack light to avoid checking a bag at the airport. You can fit everything you need for nearly a week into its carry-on-compatible 20x13x10" dimensions.



2.) A+ ancillary pockets. Felt-tastic top pocket to keep your frames scratch-free. Enough room in the mesh side pockets for 44oz Big Gulps. The organizer pocket isn't so deep that you spend 10 minutes digging for a sharpie or pen. And best of all the insulated cooler pocket goes way deep so you can fit a sammich, bananner, AND fun size bag of Cheetos in at the same time. Or 5 cans of beer. Warning about the beer, though - while 5 will fit you won't quite be able to get the zipper shut.



3.) Comfort. Shoulder straps are really solid and there's an optional sternum strap if you're covering some distance walking across campus but , plot twist, it's the Ohio State campus and is actually 607 miles wide.



4.) Style. I went with the plaino-jane-o Hawthorne print(which I still think looks dope for black/gray) but every one of these I've seen out in the wild have looked really great. Gives you the opportunity to stand out as much or as little as you want.



Be warned - this is a big bag. I feel like it compresses well and isn't uncomfortable when I'm not using even half its capacity but if you have a short torso or really don't need to pack for days on end you may want to try something else. Attached a photo of the cooler pocket because its my favorite feature.
