Really great mid-sized bag
May 02, 2010

I got this bag because I wanted a bag that could carry my laptop and a change of clothes for quick business trips. The catch: I didn't want something too bulky, because I wanted to wear it to the office as well. The 101 is the perfect size for me. My 15-inch MacBook Pro fits perfectly and there is plenty of room for books and enough pockets to separate my stuff. Plus, it looks great! Highly recommended.

perfect backpack!

Great Daily Bag
December 09, 2010

I received the bag have been using it for a week now and love it already, there are so many compartments over 6. The secret slot for personal documents in the back worked well, I tested putting my wallet and checkbooks in there and could not feel it against my back when wearing the pack. A definite plus. The sunglass compartment is very large and fit my Oakley Juliet perfectly with or without the Hard X case which was a surprise to me since most bags sunglass holder if there is one is usually small. Also its lined with fleece to prevent scratches. The fit and feel of the bag is not cheap, the zippers feel sturdy the bag overall just turns eyes. I am 6' tall and the bag fits me perfectly, but I feel that it would work for most any height. DAKINE really hit it right on with this bag. You can use it as a daily commuter bag (as I do) or for weekend trips. There is ample space for clothes for a weekend trip. I am very happy with this purchase and would suggest that anyone who is thinking about it to go ahead and purchase this particular bag.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Solid backpack
January 27, 2009

The Backpack is very well designed. There is enough room for my 15 inch mac book pro (and its sleeve, not necessary but preferred), and there is a spot for my nalgene bottle. Most importantly, my back feels great. On the picky side, the zippers are noisy (sounds like little bells), and the extra bottom laptop padding shifts a little.

Well constructed and large capacity
April 06, 2011

This bag is overall well constructed and has many useful pockets and compartments. It is a little bigger than I had originally expected but relatively light and streamlined profilewise so that it doesn't look oversized even when fully loaded. The bright trimmings on the microlink is also a nice touch providing highlights to an otherwise well-constructed black backpack.

This is a great pack for the money. Dakine thought of nearly everything you need in it from fleece lined pockets to a security slot for valuables. I recommend it for anyone who needs space for school/work and needs a weekend bag.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
