Gets the job done for short trips and grows to meet the demands of longer vacations.

good bag. big but still fits in carry-on.
This bag is big. If you fill it up (without expanding it) its thicker than advertised. I was a little worried about it but everyone still let me take it on as a carry-on even though it was technically bigger than carry-on restrictions. I took it on 4 planes on a trip to hawaii for 6 days and it held everything I needed including a suit.
The extendable handle is well built and i like the separate compartments. I even had a flight attendant ask me where I got it from.
Inside of the Over Under in "Folsom"
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.....
"legs" on bag to help stand upright.
Will this bag fit in overhead compartments...
Will this bag fit in overhead compartments as a carry on?
On bigger planes yes, if you don't use the expansion zipper. However if your on a smaller plane NO it comes close to fitting but not quite small enough.
Write your question here... Does this bag...
Write your question here... Does this bag separate into 2 bags?
No. It is expandable so that you can make more room if you need to, but it is still one bag.
A great bag
I just recently took this bag with me for an 8 day trip to Mexico (The only back I took). Granted it was a summer beach trip, but I still managed to put in 3 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of shoes many T-shirts and short sleeved shirts, 2 pairs of shorts, belts, socks, all toiletries and a mask and snorkel. It was perfect. I am a classic over packer and this bag (expanded) was able to accommodate everything I wanted to bring. The Dakine over under is not only very stylish, but extremely versatile. I highly recommend it.
My wife loves it
I bought this for my wife in pink plaid. She absolutely loves it and it got a little pathetic about how many women commented on it at the airport. Got her the matching board bag and same comments. Highly recommended.
I'm pretty sure this is the Dakine model I got. This is a nice, smaller roller for short air travel or a weeekend getaway. It is divided into 2 areas, separated by a mesh net that zips. The construction is solid. The cloth bag handles are pretty comfortable and sturdy. Wheels are great. I only have two problems with this roller: It does not have legs (or anything similar) on the opposite side of the wheels to keep it standing up straight. In other words, when I stand it up and let go of the handle, it is prone to fall over. The other complaint - the extendable handle. It's good but I was hoping it would have 2 different options in terms of extension length. In other handles I've seen, you can have the handle lock in half way out or to the full length. This one only allows you to lock-in at full extension.
A Great Versatile Suitcase
I've used my Dakine Over/Under bag for over a year and love it. Besides the awesome design that makes it easy for me to spot it on the luggage carousel, it's also extremely versatile. I'll leave it zipped down and smaller for long weekend trips or expand it for longer trips. I've used this suitcase for trips longer than two weeks. The extra pockets on the front allow easy access to an extra pair of shoes or flip flops. There are two zippered mesh pieces on the inside so you can use the two halves to keep dirty and clean stuff separate. It also feels very sturdy and rolls excellently.
