Great Quality, Good Price
April 16, 2010

I am disappointed that the backpack was not exactly as pictured on the website, but it is still a great pack. The name "Dakine" was not embroidered across the top of the pack as I had thought it would be. But, it has lots of room and will last me a lifetime. Just what I need.

I Love it!!!

Good but ...
September 18, 2012

This Dakine pack is OK but I have to admit it isn't as slick as my Dakine Factor. The Good: 1. Insulated pocket 2. Deep side mesh pockets (deeper than on the Factor) 3. Dedicated laptop sleeve 4 Straps The Bad: 1. Two alternating black Dobby fabrics; the second fabric is tacky and looks cheap. 2. The handle at the top of the pack isn't much more than a string. I'll keep this pack and use it, but my Factor is a lot nicer.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: string handle, tacky fabric

"small" bag larger than expected
February 09, 2011

great bag for the price & a lot larger than i expected for a "small" bag. great for a day hike or traveling b/c it's not too large, but big enough to hold the essentials (water, food, jacket, etc...)

Pros: Performance, Great value

Great Bag!

sweet school bag
January 06, 2011

This bag is excellent. The material is very durable and all seems are stitched very well. The zippers are also very tough and feel quite durable as well. On the inside of the bag is a rubbery liner that seems to be water proof. This feature is especially appealing to me because my notes and books were soaked all the way through twice while walking in the rain with a bag made by Columbia. The drink pocket on the front of the bag works excellent and so far I have been able to fit drinks ranging in size from an 8 oz red bull to a 24 oz Coke. The main pocket is spacious and should be able to fulfill most people's carrying needs. I absolutely recommend this bag to any student who is looking for a stylish way to safely and easily transport their laptop, books, notebooks, etc

Practical, and Comfortable
January 07, 2010

Grab your back pack and go. Nice size, not to big. Big enough to keep most of your essentials in. Two outside pouches have easy access to get to things quickly, and the main big pouch has a divided to keep things organized. The two net pouches on the outside are great to hold bottles of water. The whole back pack is well made, and functional.

Great Overall Pack
April 28, 2012

This pack is a perfect smaller pack for small day trips or school. It is not big and bulky like many packs. The pockets are functional and I love the insulated area for beverages. The only downside I have is that my laptop (15" X 9 1/2") fits very snugly in the laptop area of the pack and it is tough to zip up the pack. Other than that this pack is wonderful and extremely lightweight.

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

Great Back Packs Always
September 24, 2012

Dakine always has great back packs, and as always i was no disappointed. Length wise it was a little shorter than i imagined, but it still looks and feels great for me! Being a lot short than most people my age, its nice to finally find a pack that doesn't make me look completely tiny. Can't wait to break this puppy in with all my text books and my computer! which i image is going to fit nice and comfortably in the pack.

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

My daughter loves this backpack. It has plenty of room for her laptop and all her school gear, and the price could not be beat!


October 30, 2010

My daughter saw this and grabbed it on its arrival. She uses it for school. Carries a number of heavy books and laptop in it. She loves it . We get a new backup for her every year, this is at least her 5th backpack for school. It is by far her favorite. About a third of way into school year and it is holding up better than any previously.

Great Backpack
February 25, 2010

This backpack is amazing. I ordered the large version and there is so much space for extra items. Amazing. I would definitely recommend.

March 27, 2010

Great feel, plenty of room, confortable, my 16" laptop fits in there, will recommend to my friends.

August 31, 2009

I got this backpack just for regular high school usage and I am very pleased with it. It has a LOT of space and has great protection for a laptop if you own one. It arrived extremely quick and even came with a cliff bar.hahah. great bag overall

Campus Laptop Bag....ROCKS!!
September 03, 2009

I got this backpack for my son for Middle School & he loves it. He says it is sooooo much more comfortable than his cheap bag, so we will def be buying from Altrec again. Super fast shipping too & it came with a Cliff bar!!

Great Backpack

I used this backpack while traveling in Europe and it worked great. It can fit a few days worth of clothes and plenty of other things. It is durable and looks great.

Huge Bag!
December 27, 2009

I was looking for something that I could carry everything in while I am at school all day long. I needed room for my laptop, my big college books and whatever else I needed to carry for the day. This bag fits it all! The only thing that didn't work for me is that there wasn't enough support for the shoulders when carrying a ton of weight. I am also a petite girl and that could make a difference. I sent this back and ordered something with a waist strap to help support the weight on my shoulders.

Great Pack
June 17, 2009

This pack is light, durable and looks great. I love all the padded pockets and even the pocket where i can keep cold drinks and not get the rest of my stuff wet. Plenty of room to put tons of stuff in as well.

Fits my 17 MBP
September 16, 2010

I bought this bag cause there were no others that seemed to fit my computer, that I liked anyway. So far it's done it's job and then some. The cooler pocket is amazing and there's plenty of room for books and other things.

Best Overall Bag Ever
February 03, 2011

This is the third Dakine Campus backpack I have purchased through Altrec. These three have taken my son through Jr High and High School. Each one has lasted almost two years - that is about twice the life of other bags we have purchased! The bags are well organized with plenty of pockets, a laptop sleeve, comfortable straps, a place to keep his glasses safe up at the top, a thermal lined lunch pocket and they are amazingly sturdy. My son has to carry a LOT of HEAVY books and this backpack has been up to the challenge. In my opinion it is the ONLY choice for a school backpack.

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

great bag
December 23, 2009

the bag was bigger than I thought which was exactly what I wanted. Besides a laptop, it fit clothes, books - anything needed for a weekend trip.

Great Buy

Awesome backpack
April 20, 2009

The perfect backpack for college. I use it everyday and I love it.

Perfect as a Daybag or School Bag
February 25, 2009

The Dakine Campus Laptop Backpack is the ideal bag for your everyday needs. Its 30 liter design is very versatile, allowing you to jam pack it with books, clothes, snacks, or anything else you might need. Aside from its spacious design it looks good and is very comfortable to wear, too.

Great style for college, Love It!
August 12, 2009

I just received the Arcade backpack a few weeks ago and I absolutely love the design. It has nice padded shoulders and plenty of room for my college books along with my 17 inch laptop. Love it!!
