Great daypack

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Bought this for my son as his carry-on bag and daypack for long distant travel. As other reviews have said, it is large. But if you're looking for a bag that will hold a lot of stuff: extra jacket, snacks, electronics, etc. this is a good buy. The bag has been beaten around and still looks good. I think the smaller compartments could have been organized a little better, that's the only reason it did not receive 5 stars. We got it on sale through Backcountry, which made the buy even better!

How much does this backpack weigh


Awesome Backpack

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This bag is awesome! Beware that it is very large. As previous review has said is that it hangs a little low and the more room you have the more you can carry which can also weigh you down.

Very well built and fits really well and is comfortable!

I would recommend this guy to anyone! Just don't put to much in it.


Cool idea

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

overall the Dakine Campus Backpack is a pretty cool idea. The backpack its self I thought was to large for what it has to offer. I'm 6ft and i thought it was still way to big and bulky. It can hold a lot of stuff but at the same time that's a lot of weight to be caring around.

What are the internal dimensions of the cooler pouch?

What do you mean "one size" when I am picking the item that I want? It

still is the large backpack, correct? This is because on another website that I was on they offered the backpack in one size and then in a 26 liter or a 33 liter.

Hey Lesley,

The One Size is only referring to the torso measurement- in some packs it will offer a couple of different sizes. This pack is just one standard torso length, and all colors will offer the same 2000 cu in of volume!

How much will the cooler pocket hold? And...

How much will the cooler pocket hold? And does it have a chest strap?


The insulated "cooler" pocket is the smaller horseshoe shaped one at the front of the pack in the product image. As you can see, it is not huge and I would only recommend a single drink can, or a couple of Capri-Suns.

Yes, The Dakine Campus Large Backpack comes with a chest strap.


Great Pack

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have used and abused this backpack for about 2 and a half years, and it has definitely been the most spacious backpack I've ever had. Its fitted just about 3 3" inch binders plus textbooks and a sketchbook. Definitely a practical pack. Sadly after these 2 and a half years the zippers have come to rip and I need a new pack, and I'm definitely considering getting another campus pack. It hard to find another pack with this much space, comfort, and practicality (especially with the cooler pocket on the front!). Also it fits my 32 oz. camelbak water bottle perfectly in the side mesh pockets.



    I bought this backpack a few years ago, I would say back in 2009. I still use it all the time! It's great for school, works well for the beach or a short weekend trip. The straps are really durable and feel nice on my shoulders. I like the sunglass holder on the top of the back as well as the little "cooler" it has in the front. It also has a laptop holder inside which I've found super useful.

    I've been buying Dakine products for awhile now and when it comes to backpacks or luggage, I always pick Dakine first - all their stuff is super dependable and long lasting! Highly recommend!


    Perfect Backpack!

      This bag is amazing! We bought it to use for a bag to take out for my special needs son. The quality and durability are amazing, exceeded all my expectations. The size of the bag is pretty big, just like we needed. Space and compartments for everything but the main space w the laptop sleeve (or diaper and wipe sleeve in my case) is very very spacious! The two side mesh pockets are also sturdy and large. Holds a 8oz. (Could hold 3 at a time) without falling out even when we bend down. I recommend this bag to anyone looking for space and durability!


      DAKINE does it again

        I love my new DAKINE backpack. As with buying anything online you are not positive what you are going to get. I was afraid the size would not be big enough and the extra pockets would be useless. Quite the opposite. The size is perfect for anything. I travel a lot and it fits about 4 days worth of clothing and everything I need. All the pockets serve a purpose too. Weather it be work or pleasure there is a pocket for anything you have. I really think the sunglasses and cooler pocket are a nice touch as well. This is the perfect all around backpack and just what I needed.


        Perfect Backpack

          Bought for my 12 year old son. He think the colors are so cool and loves all the compartments. All of his school books fit, his gym uniform and his lunch box. Great choice. Durable and rugged.

          A big bag for a big man - fills needs

          • Familiarity:I've used it several times

          This bag was bought for a big dude that has lots of books to carry with him to school. He also likes to have food with him in case classes run long or he has a workout to do in the middle of the day. This bag has been able to hold his many leather bound books and keep his appetite steady throughout the day. He even commented about how comfy the straps are on for his shoulders and back. I think we have a winner ladies and gents!

          My son is a rising 6th grader and his school requests drawstring bags rather than backpacks because the pack needs to fit inside the school desk during classes. Drawstring bags stink! What are the dimensions of this pack? Would it be a good alternative? Thanks.

          The dimensions of the bag are 20" H x 13" W x 9" D. Would it be a good alternative? I wouldn't be able to say with out knowing the size of the desk sorry.


          Laptip Size?

            Can anyone tell me what size laptop will this bag will accommodate? I currently have a 17" which I carry in a Swiss Army bag. But unfortunately it is starting to rip at the zipper seams because it's really only made for a 15" laptop.

            Up to 15". And there's a section for asking questions right under the review one in case you didn't know.
