In life, it’s important to always trust those who know. When you want to repair your car, you call a mechanic, simply. When you want to fix your pipes, you contact a plumber, certainly. And when you want to solve your winter clothes issues, you hit up Dakine, of course!
Dakine appeared in 1973 in Maui, Hawaii and started as a surfing leashes manufacturer. Using materials that were stronger than usual, founder Rob Caplan's main goal was to help his friends to never lose their surfs because of a leash that breaks. Seeing how successful the brand is today, we can safely say that it worked!
Today, nearly 40 years later, Dakine is still a leader in the field of action sports equipment. It’s only recently that the brand decided to introduce an outerwear line to its high-end products selection. Believe us, in addition to being really good looking and with a quality that exceeds industry standards, the gear is very tech. For example, all pants and jackets in the collection include GORE-TEX. It's hard to be wrong with this almost magical material.JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwc3JjJTNEJTIyaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZwbGF5ZXIudmltZW8uY29tJTJGdmlkZW8lMkYyMzg5NjY1NDclM0ZieWxpbmUlM0QwJTI2cG9ydHJhaXQlM0QwJTIyJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjIxMDAwJTIyJTIwaGVpZ2h0JTNEJTIyNTYzJTIyJTIwZnJhbWVib3JkZXIlM0QlMjIwJTIyJTIwd2Via2l0YWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTIwbW96YWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTIwYWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTNFJTNDJTJGaWZyYW1lJTNF
