Founded in Hawaii and currently based out of Hood River, Oregon, Dakine has been making high quality gear since 1979. Specializing in packs, bags, and luggage, Dakine makes it simple to equip yourself for amazing adventures. While Dakine does everything that they can to create the best product, they find that their best testing ground is in the great outdoors, and they operate under the following statement "live it. Build it. Test it. Improve it. Then do it all over again next season." Their extensive line of quality products shows that this technique is about as effective as they come.
