SkiPhanwrote a review of DAKINE Duel 26L Backpack on October 19, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
With our new bundle of joy on the way, I didn't want some lame diaper bag from babies-r-us that would be useless in a few years. I came across the gem, as a generic bag, but it was so much more than we had originally thought.
The laptop sleeve is great for a changing pad, the padded sunglass sleeve works great for pacifers. The insulated compartment for a few beers works for a few bottles for the day. The side compartments are used for our own water bottles. The snowboard/skateboard straps have been the best feature. We have used it to carry a nursing pill, my wife's yoga mat all on the outside.
We grow up, become adults, get married, buy a house, have kids, but always return to my routes, DaKine comes through once again.
