When growing up and becoming an adult there is quite a lot of things you do not have in your life that sometimes are needed when plans arrive. Personal Luggage besides using the childhood soccer bag you have used for multiple years as it's falling apart would be one of them for me.
First work trip or Ski Vacation pops up, and you have no way to haul any of your gear, dress clothes, and are stuck with these old bags or hammy down from your parents. To me the decision was easy to find a brand I trusted that completed a luggage problem I had with moving my skis and attire from trip to trip.
My first purchase of a DaKine product was their DaKine Heli Pro 20L technical backpack which got me through the remainder of university for four and half years; with several trips out west for skiing. I have never had a problem with this pack besides breaking one buckle on the waist strap while skiing. This pack eventually lead to my decision to purchase DaKine's Fall Line Double, Carry On Roller (36L), and Duffle Roller (58L) Roller all in the Hood Colorway from 2013-14 year.
This luggage has made it from Ohio and has visited all over the country through multiple airports with no problems. The Fall Line Double bag safely carries my 184CM Line Sir Francis Bacon Skis as well as my Atomic Punx 171CM with extra gear stuffed into the bag.
If you are in the market for new luggage and have a ton of gear to haul around definitely check out the DaKine Series of gear. You will not be disappointed!
