Best Backpacks for School: Dakine Womens 13 Litre Grom 6 Inch

Dakine Womens 13 Litre Grom 6 Inch

I usually lug around a messenger bag when I'm out and about, but I wanted a backpack for my recent trip to Vegas. I was looking around for a pack that was lightweight and rather small; much smaller than ones used by students. I discovered Dakine packs, and now I'm a fan!

There are several things I love about the 13-liter Grom Pack:

++ Just the right size--small, but big enough for everything I need, with plenty of room to spare. Its about 15 inches tall, about 10 inches wide.
++ Padded shoulder straps. These are essential for me when picking a backpack. Very comfortable. The much smaller Dakine 6-Liter Go Go Pack did not have this, which is why I decided to upgrade to the Grom.
++ Sternum strap. Makes the pack even more comfortable, and will stabilize the shoulder straps. I am able to wear my pack all day without much fatigue at all.
++ Padded back. Again, good for comfort.
++ Thick, rugged material for the bottom of the pack; its not hard/plastic, it just makes the bottom a little more stable than the slightly thinner material on the rest of the pack.
++ Love the color I chose, "Highland".
++ Bungee cord on the outside was used to clip all of my casino club cards; quick storage for hats, too.
++ Can attach my Timbuk2 cell phone holder to the left shoulder strap for easy access to my iPhone.

Some things I hope to see in the future for this line of Dakine packs:

-- Key clip/bungie in one of the external compartments.
-- Needs at least one internal pocket in the main compartment.
-- Ventilation for the padded back.

This is now my everyday pack; take it to work, shopping, amusement parks, pretty much everywhere I go. Its much more comfortable to use than my messenger bags and is near perfect for my needs. Definitely recommend the Grom Pack to anyone looking for a smaller-sized backpack.

    I needed a backpack for the gym, so it had to be roomy enough for the towel, flip flops, change of clothes and what not. At the same time it had to be small enough to fit into the gym locker. This backpack met my criteria entirely and I love how cute it looks. Although, if you are very particular about color, be careful - I ordered one in Houndstooth (black with pink buckles) but received black with lime buckles. Still looks pretty cute though. Also, it's quite small, so don't buy it if you need to fit a laptop and a bunch of books in there.

    this bag was received on time and in fabulous condition. it will be perfect for my daughter! she is a 2nd grader with backpack envy. looks like this'll do the trick! She can use it to go hiking in the spring which makes it so much more worth the purchase. versatility!

  4. Saw the same bag in Maui, HI, but did not buy it there. Glad that I found it again on Amazon. Great two side pockets design with just sufficient room for school books. The small pocket on top is great for coins, keys and ID passes.

    I started hiking a lot and was at the point where I needed a little backpack. The color isn't too bold, but it's not boring either. I've used this little pack so many times and it still feels brand new. The stitching is tight and the quality A+. You can adjust the chest strap up and down, and the netting in the back can extend a good ways so you can hang a bulky jacket. Also, there is a small pouch at the very top of the pack that fits a small digit camera perfectly. It fits 2 large water-bottles, 2 bags of trail mix, sunscreen and wallets/phones with plenty of space to spare.

  6. This backpack is the perfect replacement for a purse. I don't like purses. It's not too big and not too small. I love the color and details. Great quality merchandise from Dakine!
