DAKINE Trek 26L Backpack

Past meets present.

Saying "they don't make 'em like they used to" about the Dakine Trek Backpack is actually a compliment. That's because underneath the vintage-inspired design lies a modern pack that includes a padded laptop sleeve to keep you ready for today's world.

DAKINE Trek 26L Backpack

Poor Design for Traveling

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

I ordered this backpack for a 3-day business trip, primarily because of the cushioned laptop pouch. That was a great feature; however, it was really the only good thing about this backpack. There are no outer pockets or pouches for easy access to items. There is a side zipper, which is your best option for getting into the bag. The plastic hook closures often do not stay closed. It's a shame, because it is a really attractive bag. A couple of outer pockets/pouches and a better closure would have made it perfect!
