If you have ever had a Dakine bag, then you know what i'm talking about. this is my third dakine backpack that I have purchased and I love them all. My oldest one is 6 years old and still working great. This bag offers all the protection that I need for my camera gear and give me an easy comfortable way to hike it wherever I want or need to take it. The design is amazing, the inner case comes right our of the bag so I can take that if I just need a smaller protective case and then I have a great backpack.
