Fills a void
This is the 4th or 5th Dakine pack I've purchased and I continue to be impressed with their product.
This version of the Blade is a definitely a step up from the 2009/10 version of the Poacher, which I had to have modified by a tailor to fit my needs. Access via the top of this pack is a bit different than past Dakine packs, but it seems to work well. The separate compartments of this pack are great and the overall size allows me to use the overhead bins on the smaller regional jets many airlines use to service smaller airports. As usual the straps are much longer than needed, but a good sewing machine takes care of that issue real quick.
Great pack overall cant wait to see how it holds up in the mountains and on the beach.
I was impressed with the size of this pack. The billowed compartment is awesome, and there is a goggle pocket just inside the top flap that i only found recently.
My only complaint is that the hole for the water-bladder-hydration system is completely sewn shut. I mean completely. Not quite sure why or how it happened, or if it is a common problem with these packs, although I'd be interested to hear what others have to say
To specify, I'm talking about the hole that is supposed to lead from the shoulder strap to the inside of the pack, that hole isn't there. Very peculiar
this pack is gnarly
picked it up for a 14day roadtrip across country
my wife used it and she was able to pack everything she needed for 14days into this bag, and she is a girly girl...so needless to say if she had room leftover, whatelse could you need?
its nice to carry, has plenty of compression straps , mutiple entry points so when you need to get that one thing in the bottom of the bag its not a pain in the neck
i love all of dekine's stuff and this is one of their better packs
cant wait to test it out on a snow trip this winter
I was looking for a carry-on bag as my sole bag for travelling that was also comfortable enough for overnight hiking and carrying for extended periods and this one ended up fitting the bill perfectly. It fit the specs for all the airlines we travelled on (although it packs so well you need to be mindful of weight restrictions in Europe).
I would prefer for it to have an extended opening down the side for access, but there is a back access.
The way the top flap covers the opening and attaches to the shoulder adjustment is awkward and limits adjustability of those straps if the bag is packed to the max. Also, the opening to your gear inside becomes exposed at the same time.
At max capacity the zipper storages (sides, top & inside top) are rendered useless.
Dakine seem to nail a level of comfort with straps without being to bulky for the size of the pack.
Will have to see how it goes carrying skis/snowboard next winter...
Dakine Blade in Whiteout
Blade being put to good use in Tuckerman Ravine whiteout conditions. (50mph wind, subzero windchill)
Dakine Blade in Tuckerman Ravine
Dakine Blade diagonal ski carry system works well to carry skis and boots
Lots of compartments to keep you organized. Plenty of space for all of your gear. Diagonal ski carry system works well. Can even carry ski boots attached to skis if needed (like hiking to Tuckerman Ravine. Very durable too.
Dakine Blade: First Impression
Bought on this pack for day ski trips to Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington. First impression is that this a very cool pack. Ski boots (size 9.5) fit fine, with planty of room for extra layers, etc. The internal compartments will let me get at essential gear without rumaging through the entire load. The ski carry straps are straightforward & very easy to use.
Unfortunately work prevented me from making the trip, so I can't tell you how well it works in actual use. It looks great!
this pack is will work for touring but i have a few complaints with it. first the avy shovel pocket is to small for shovel, probe and handle. i own the bd deploy 3 shovel (which is somewhat small) and it was a super tight fit to get the shovel and probe in together. next is that all of the adjustment straps are super long, as if this pack was made for chewbacca. pack has plenty of room and good materials, just miss the mark a bit. i will be getting the new Backcountry Access Stash BC Pack instead.
