Solid pack!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently got this backpack to replace an old Vans backpack that finally ripped on me. This thing is awesome! It has plenty of pockets and the cooler pocket works great. I have not experienced leaks in it yet. This thing is right at home heading from the airport straight to the skatepark.

this is a great pack with tons of pockets.
We have used this as a baby bag for a while now, and it works great.
holds everything we need for the baby when we go out on family day trips.
Would make a great school pack too

Good looking bag with great pockets

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I love the color and the pockets, but it's no replacement for my JS Equinox 33 - so it's going back. I didn't take it out, but tested it in the house by putting my gear in it. The straps also hit the sides of my breasts, which is also a no-go!

Depending on what you're looking for though, this could be the bag for you!

Will this fit a 15" laptop? I have noticed...

Will this fit a 15" laptop? I have noticed several Dakine bags list laptop size but have read several reviews were they say it will fit up to a 17" laptop. Can anyone provide the actually measurements of the laptop sleeve? DOes this bag have a waist-belt?

The Dakine Duel Backpack claims to have a 14" laptop sleeve, though I have a friend who was able to maneuver his 15" MacBook Pro inside without any issue. However, you will not be able to fit a 17" in the laptop sleeve of this bag.

The Dakine Duel does have a chest buckle/strap system, but no waist-belt.

great pack
