The history of Dakine begins in 1979, when founder Rob Kaplan created a surf leash (a cord surfers use to attach themselves to their boards) that could withstand the tough conditions of Hawaii's North Shore. After spending the early 1980s producing windsurfing gear, Dakine — in Hawaiian, its meaning is “the kind” — moved to Oregon in 1986 and gradually expanded its range to include men’s and women’s ski, bike and snowboard clothing as well as durable luggage, hats and gloves, and other outdoor accessories. Whether you’re looking for a backpack that will transport your goods across the street or a performance-ready rucksack like the Heli Pro, Dakine’s got all the bags you need — and with super-practical features such as fleece-lined pockets and insulated hydro-sleeves.
Dakine's bags are sport-specific but universally stylish. Backpacks that can carry a skateboard <i>and</i> a laptop come in dapper tweed. A surf daypack comes with a sealable wetsuit bag in gray and blue plaid. Then there's the luggage: no less innovative, one piece is a single large suitcase that splits into two carry-ons.
