I was looking for a small weekend purse for baseball games and going to the city without lugging around my LV Speedy and this backpack was perfect! I purchased it in the Lattice Floral pattern which is black with a subtle geometric design so it doesn't look too childish on a 30 year old. It is compact and not bulky but fits quite a bit of stuff. There was a review that mentioned an iPad will not fit but I was able to fit my iPad 2 easily along with my make up bag, checkbook wallet, keys, pepper spray, and sunglasses with room to spare. I love this backpack and have been wearing it around the house like a dork. Thanks to Zappos for the quick and speedy shipping and easy return policy, you guys are seriously the best!

It was really cute, there was a bead keychain thing that came along with the bag. The corally orange color was brighter than I expected but nonetheless very pretty! I loved it c: Casual and cute.

Love the Regatta stripe, but have to return it. Zappos has the length as 22" but the manufacturer label says 23" and including the wheels that is what it measured, putting it over the international limit for my flight. Thought of trying to carry it on anyway, but the idea of a small suitcase is not to check anything so don't want to chance it!

If you're looking for a backpack that separates you from the crowd, then you have found it. Rugged style bag with lots of functionality and ample storage space. The padded tablet sleeve on the front is a great touch as well. The issues with this bag stem from the lack easy access to it's features. The features are accessible, however the top loading pocket does not make organization of the main compartment very simple. Also the bag has a tendency to fold over in an odd fashion unless it is fully loaded. There is some storage space for pens, markers, and other miscellaneous items, but I don't find the upper compartments to be convenient to access either. My 15" Dell Inspirion laptop barely fits and it is a struggle to get the zipper around the corners of the laptop, you have been forewarned not all 15" laptops will fit. Another complaint would be that books and folders tend to snag on the velcro strap that keeps the computer in place. This backpack is exceedingly narrow, the majority of the 30L comes from the length of the pack, it is quite a struggle to get a water bottle and a coffee thermos into the side pockets. Overall I am satisfied with the backpack, I am willing to accept it's shortcomings and quirks because I truly like the way it fits and the overall appearance.

I purchased this bag and it was super adorable in person. Unfortunately I did not measure the screen width and my laptop was 15 1/4" so it would not fit in the bag! Make sure to measure length, width, height and diagonally across your laptop screen for the right measurements!

I love this pack! Perfect for carrying a phone, some snacks, a book, and a bottle of water. Lots of little compartments. The size is perfect, not too big, not too small. However, I've had the pack for less than two months, and it's already falling apart; holes around the zipper, the fabric is printed and not woven, so the color is fading quickly. I was surprised, as Dakine is usually high quality.

The bag itself is really nice. I purchased the patchwork camo design, but the colors seemed more muted than they are in the picture.

It's a solidly made bag with lots of room. The skateboard holding area is reinforced so the grip doesn't shred the bag. It's also pretty comfortable, even when it's heavy. I'd definitely recommend it.

Looks cool and is well made but I do not recommend it as an elementary backpack. It's not right for my 10-year-old. The straps are pretty wide apart and, due to her small stature, the spacing of the straps at the top where it rests on her neck is not comfortable.

I went with the Dakine line for my kids back packs for 1 main reason. Son used a Dakine Duffle bag for his portable school locker for 2 years. ALL of his high school books, boy things, gym clothes, and lunch went into this bag for 2 years. It held up BEAUTIFULLY. He could still use it but wanted to go to a back pack this year. It is the best money I have spent. If you hold the bag with all the books in it, it is very heavy BUT if you put it on your back, for what ever reason it seems lighter. My daughter also has a Dakine back pack and is equally as wonderful. They love all of the compartments. They also love the fact that they can take their lunch in it and don't have to use a lunch bag. The cooler part works great. Would definitely recommend this back and brand to everyone.

I purchased this bag as a gift. It was as featured and was what I wanted for my daughter who travels overseas. She was very pleased with the gift.

Dakine Luggage is the best! It is amazingly durable and functional but also looks great. The thing about Zappos is, you can purchase one piece of Dakine or a full set which is what I needed. This was my first Zappos purchase and it was great, fast and accurate. I recommend both.

I've only had this pack for 2 months but it has accompanied me as a carryon for 6 flights. It is a thick bag on the back, so the backpack straps only come out for use when I'm pulling wheeled suitcases as well. Bottom line: If you're looking for a bag which will allow you to neatly organize clothes, tech, documents, and toiletries in order to breeze through the concourse without waiting at the carousel, this is a good option.

I love Dakine bags because they're so durable and they look pretty cool also. I liked this bag because it's small enough to bring on a plane but big enough to fit in lots of things. The one thing I was confused about was the bottom panel is velcroed down on 3 out of 4 sides...maybe it's for cleaning?

My neck and back were hurting from lugging around my old purses filled with everything! I decided to put most of my "needs" in the car & get a smaller crossbody. I love this purse! It fits all the essentials. Phone, wallet, small brush, etc. Not only is it useful, light to carry but it is cute too! I have had many compliments on it. Thinking of buying another one in a different color. Dakine is cool, not only in Hawaii but on the mainland too!

It's the perfect size and I love the color (black with purple). It's very spacious inside and I used it to carry everything when I went to a music festival. The inside zipper held cash, cards, and ID. I can fit my cellphone, sunscreen, baby wipes, chapstick, and sunglasses. The padding is a little useless though. I think it took up too much space.

I've been using this duffle a lot lately and it's been great. I like that it's not very structured so I can roll it up and put it away when i'm not using it. It fits quite a bit of stuff and I like the side pocket for the smaller items. When it gets heavy and full, the plastic rings on both sides squeak when I carry it. I'm kind of scared it'll pop off soon.

I bought it for my brother in college. He says he likes the backpack cause it's very comfortable on his back but it doesn't fit much of his stuff. He can get a book and a notebook in there but it's not helpful when he has a full day of classes. He's had it for two years and the zipper part is not holding up and it's starting to rip. I just ordered another Dakine backpack (bigger size) for him. I love the brand.
