This is an awesome coat when your arms are stretched out the sleeves stay right with you. Bending over the coat is long enough so you crack doesn't stick out. Plenty of pockets the description doesn't tell you but there is 5 more pockets than said to be. One larger one on the side/back that can hold larger items like a beverage. Two interior pockets one is mesh and is big enough to hold your goggles other is a zippered and is big enough to hold your wallet and cellphone. The powder skirt has a clear pass holder as well if you don't want to keep it on your chest on that pocket. The hood isn't obstructive at all when its zipped up and on and stays in place which is a very nice feature. The Velcro is very strong and covers the front main zipper very well no worries of water slipping in there. The two main bottom pockets are actual quad pockets put your hand in from the sides and store items through the top. Im 6'0 185lbs with a 40" chest and i ordered an medium and a large and the large felt like a blanket on me the medium was perfect and will allow me plenty of room for layers if need be.

This Jacket is the perfect combination of style and function. I have been looking for a jacket of this caliber for sometime. it functions like a cycling jacket but looks very streamline with unique flair. Hand pockets were crucial for me since I commute on bike, they are mesh lined so can be opened for for ventilation. Drop-tail reflector is nice for wheel spray and visibility. The Side reflectors deploy down but I don't use them much since they look kind of weird hanging down but do what they are intended for. Zippered wrist hems are nice for ventilation and a sleek look. Its Fleece Lined so a base layer is all that is needed for most temperatures. Has a back vent to regulate heat but since I wear a messenger bag 95% of the time doesn't do much for me. Wish it had the pit zips like the "Portland" jacket has, as I feel they would be more functional but the Portland doesn't come in a black though thats why I opted for the "Hybrid". The Chest pocket has a headphone port for music. Im 6' 175 lbs and the medium fits just right with a base layer.

The Noose N' Shackle U-Lock is the perfect compromise if you need a heavy duty lock for your bike. To give you a little insight where Im coming from on bike locks I had over a dozen and all types of them. I've had kryptonite's fagettaboutit chains, U-Locks, cable locks, etc. and i find this lock to be about perfect for my needs. Sure it's not at strong as fagettaboutit chains but this isn't a cable lock you would be able to cut with a wimpy pliers either its a thick cable and beefy little U-Lock. Don't let the picture fool you its larger than I had perceived but I was happy about that. I can easily wrap both my wheels and frame up with this combination. Bottom line here is if someone wants to steal your bike bad enough they can and will but they will have to put in a decent effort to get at it with this lock.

Heres the deal in the world of camera luggage your options are endless. There is sling, backpack, messenger, etc. you need to figure out what style of bag that fits your lifestyle best. I have been fortunate enough to be able to use a handful of different styles and was never hooked on any till I came across this Dakine Mission Photo Backpack. This bag comes with just about anything I could ask for in the world of camera bags.

First lets talk about the overall appearance of the bag it Cool and confident; its takes queues from tradition snowboarding/skateboarding backpacks so it doesn't scream "Hey I have really expensive camera gear in here come steal me!"

The bag is made from high grade nylon and polyester. The zippers are a beefy YKK the strongest I've ever seen for a camera bag and some of the strongest in any luggage for that matter. There are chest and waist straps to help you secure the bag to yourself so you make is snug and a secure fit. The waist straps are padded which come in handy if you are wearing the bag for extended periods of time.

There are three small external pockets on the sides one is fleece lined for delicate items I put my sunglasses in there its a perfect fit. The other two are nylon lined and could be used for snacks or other smaller items. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is I saw and read in other reviews that one of those pockets is suppose to expend into a mesh lined drink holder I got the Phantom Color and Im not entirely sure if maybe its that specific color way that didn't come worth it or maybe it was previous years that offered that unique feature and this years didn't. Either way I was a little let down not having that on the bag but Ill make due I think I'll try and fabricate something to to make it capable to hold a bottle.

The tripod carrier/board carrier has a unique texture on the inside of it that creates grip for either or. It has a deployable rain cover that pulls out and covers the entire bag expect the part that resides next to your back. A nice feature because most camera bags don't come with any type of waterproofing.

The interior of the bag is a nice lime green color which I wanted a bright colored interior because dark interiors can often be hard to locate items in certain circumstances. It has a few different pockets for pens, cables, memory cards, ipods, phones, etc.

The camera block can configure to basically any way you want it set up. It only comes with two velcro dividers so If you have a camera bag already you can just pull a few out from there and put inside this one to give you a few more slots for lenses and accessories; if you don't have a camera bag already you can purchase extra dividers on eBay or Amazon for a couple bucks.

The camera block can be removed entirely to create two separate bags. I find this to be an excellent feature if you acquire new items while your are out and need a space to put them.

This bag is everything I could ask for in a camera bag without being to big and bulky. Except the water bottle holder would have been a nice feature to have. But don't let that stray you away from buying the bag. Dakine has been making great products for years and the mission photo bag is no exception to that.
