Dakine was started on Maui’s North Shore in 1979 by surfer Rob Kaplan. Dakine moved their main office to Hood River Oregon in 1986 and started to get approached by snowboarders who needed high quality products that could stand up to abuse of backcountry expeditions. The Dakine Heli Pro pack was first designed in 1986 for a snowboarder's heli Alaska trips and has continued to be a staple for adventurous riders. By 2005, mountain biking had become big in Hood River, and Dakine expanded their problem solving gear to suit that industry as well. Dakine backpacks and their collection of snowboard gear is created with quality, durability and an eye for solving the problems that outdoor athletes face out on the mountain.
Dakine backpacks have the versatility to go from mountain top to black top with dual purpose lap top and hydration sleeves, fleece lined goggle and sunglass pockets, large main compartments and smaller organizational pockets. Travel the world with Dakine luggage. The Dakine Split Roller gives you separation panels to sort your clothes and gear easily and the Dakine Status Roller can be expanded from carry-on size to a midsize luggage bag. Dakine backpacks and Dakine luggage bags come in a variety of prints and sizes to match your packing needs. These durable bags will follow you around the world- or across the campus- for years to come.
Dakine Gloves and Mitts:
Dakine gloves and mittens keep your hands warm through bitter cold temperatures using Primaloft insulation along with Gore Tex and water repellant leather to keep the moisture out. Try on the Dakine Titan glove with a removable Dakine Storm Line glove and enjoy the touchscreen compatible finger tips that let you stay in touch with your electronic devices. The Dakine Wristguard Jr. Glove keeps your little riders wrists protected from falls as they learn to connect turns or make their first laps in the park.
Have fun in the sun or in the snow with Dakine hats. Dakine beanies and Dakine trucker hats both come in a variety of colors and styles to reflect your love of the mountains and the beach. Hawaiian inspired prints on the Dakine Palmbay trucker hat will make it feel like summer all year long!
Dakine wallets are made with quality materials that last. Choose from leather wallets with coin pockets or durable yet casual Dakine Payback Wallet when you are headed to the slopes or the beach.
