Backpack Shop | Backpacks for every occasion
If you're looking for a new backpack but are unsure which backpack model fits your individual needs? No matter if you prefer daily or leisure backpacks for men or women, colorful school backpacks for boys and girls or functional laptop backpacks in business style: With the tips & tricks from the Dakine Shop you will find the right backpack for every occasion! Because even for traveling, hiking, skiing tours or photographs, Dakine has always the right product.
How do I find the right backpack size?
Of course, the ideal backpack dimensions depend on your need for space and volume. On a Sunday walk, you might only have your wallet, keys and cell phone with you. For a long day at school, however, you urgently need a school backpack with at least 20 liters capacity, so that school books, magazines and Co. also find enough space. For backpacks to sit well, your stature and anatomy play a decisive role in the choice of size, in addition to the areas of application. Of course the shoulder and chest straps are adjustable on all Dakine models and you can adjust them individually so that the straps do not slip off sideways. But not every pack fits on every back. A good example is the popular Dakine Campus Backpack. It is available in two sizes, either 25 liters or 33 liters in volume. The 33-liter campus is recommended for those who are taller than 1.60 meters.

How do I pack backpacks correctly?
The comfort of a backpack depends greatly on how it is packed. With our tips you can save a whole lot of space and weight. Big and heavy parts like books, orders etc. should be stowed away first. So the weight or the center of gravity is close to the body and it does not pull the backpack backwards and away from the body. For this reason, the laptop compartment is always attached directly to the back of Dakine laptop backpacks. In the end, the small parts can be packed. Many Dakine Packs have organizer compartments and pockets for glasses, cell phones or wallets. You better fasten drinks and umbrellas on the outside to avoid damaging exercise books or objects on the inside. For large Backpacker backpacks from about 40L volume, we recommend you not to pack heavy luggage too far down, but if possible at shoulder height. The closer the weight is to your body, the better comfort.
How do I set my backpack correctly?
If the straps are too loose, the weight of the backpack pulls you down and burdens the shoulders unnecessarily. The pack should not sit to tight, otherwise the freedom of movement is restricted. It is best if the backpack ends approximately at the height of the hip bones. To adjust the shoulder straps, use both hands to pull the straps on the lower part of the backpack straps at the same time so that the shoulder straps are adjusted as evenly as possible and the weight does not tip over on one side. Many Dakine models have an adjustable chest strap to keep the center of gravity as close as possible. Ideally, the chest strap runs just below the clavicle - that way the shoulder joints are relieved. If your new Dakine Pack also has a padded hip belt, you can use it to shift the main weight from the shoulders to the hips. The upper edge of the waist belt should sit about 2 inches above the hip bone.

That a practical backpack is not only on the backs of students and teenagers, proves only the wide range of trendy models and casual bags that you can buy in stores and online. In the schoolyard, at the university, on the way to work, on a stroll through the city, hiking or cycling. Everywhere you can see backpacks on the streets! Every season, other backpack styles and color patterns are trendy. For the girls, the stylish mini backpack in soft pastel is currently very popular, while the boys like to fall back on casual bags in bright colors like red, blue or orange.

What are the most popular features and functions for backpacks?
A good Dakine Backpack convinces not only by its casual look and its cool design, but above all by its many functions and details! Most men are looking for a backpack with padded laptop compartment for notebook or Macbook. A good school bag needs a lot of space for books, small pockets and organizer compartments (some also value a cooling compartment for lunch sandwiches). A sports or bicycle backpack should be lightweight, ergonomic and back-friendly. No other backpack brand manages to combine functionality, ergonomics and a cool design at a price as low as Dakine's.
