The Dakine Split Roller | The Board Basement
Hate packing???!! The Dakine Split Roller is an iconic piece of luggage for the active traveller that totally changes the mundane packing experience. It has divided top and bottom compartments with easy access for the ultimate organization. Also, the ingenious Split Wing for compression and flat storage.
This dreamy item of wheeled luggage has actually been around for many years. Dakine itself was founded in Hawaii in 1979 and based in Mount Hood, Oregon. Dakine builds backpacks, luggage, travel bags and clothing/ accessories for free-spirited people who love to travel. Dakine is aimed towards surfers, snowboarders, skateboarders, mountain bikers and kite surfers. Their products encapsulate all of the above.
The design team at Dakine live, eat and breath Dakine, needless to say they LOVE the brand. They are passionate, outdoors, extreme sport enthusiasts so they create items that really work for its market; creating, testing and tweaking the products until they come up with the "creme de la creme". This is how the Split Roller was born.
This roomy roller suitcase focuses on maximising packing space. There is a large main compartment with individual divided sections with a mesh covering so you can easily see whats inside. This is also good if you need to keep your dirty gear separate from your clean clothes. The Split Wing element of the bag allows you to compress the bag when not in use, with a collapsible brace providing great stability and folds flat. Now the suitcase can slide under the bed or on top of the wardrobe with ease.
