The Dakine Departure Bag is a quick evolution of the Dakine In Flight. I have had a Dakine folding bag like this for about 10+ years and they have traveled far with me. I loved the In Flight bag until I found the departure. It has a denser material, stronger zippers, stronger parts, better laptop protection and better organization than the In Flight bag. It’s also a little more square so it’s easier to pack things symmetrically.
It’s a bag that converts into a backpack and it has something I really love. No wheels and no extending rod so it carries a lot more clothes for it’s size. This isn’t really a snowboarding item but I found it works incredibly well if you are going through an airport with a wheelie bag for snowboard gear because it holds a lot for a carry on and it also fits on your back so you can carry a board.
