Odditywrote a review of DAKINE Pro 2 Backpack - 1600cu in on October 22, 2009
This pack is sheer awesome. More than enough space for all the stuff I would ever need to carry. Quality is top notch, all the zippers are strong, and the pockets are well thought out. The build quality really is second to none.
Now the only downfall here is that the board-carry straps were not all that well thought out. As mentioned below, the top vertical carry strap is just too tight to get around your snowboard if the bag is ~65% packed or more. Secondly, to get the board in the horizontal carry, you need to slide the board through both shoulder straps, which can be a real pain if you have to do it often or if you have bulky bindings.
Both those issues can be solved if you have a decent knowledge on how to sew. I adore this bag and give it 5 stars regardless of the carry. One of few things I feel bad for paying full price for, will be putting it through a ton of snowboard trips this year.
