Look & Tell With Sean From Dakine & Transition

A rainy Friday in the office and The Deadline is on us.

Fortunately to break the virtual chains of bondage to our computers, Sean from Surfsales came to our rescue with a bike and parts to drool over from Transition and clothes and bags from Dakine.

The quite (in Matt’s eyes) gorgeous Tranistion Bottle Rocket in a Pollock-esque paint job, look like a weekend of skinning various bodyparts down rocks for Matt then!

_SIM8998

_SIM8997

The Fairway. Lovely, lovely glove in Durafuse™ Leather (The leather is bonded together so no stitching) on palm and back panel- Super thin stretchy and grippy – they feel like they’d be great to ride (and golf?) in.

Bags

_SIM8988

_SIM8987

Messenger- As described really but again with some nice attention to detail. If you look at the first of the two pictures you’ll see a patch of material on the back of the pack. That’s for sliding over  those retractable airline style handles you get on so many travel bags these days, so you don’t have to have it on your back whilst you dragging your main bag. It’ll take all of your normal day to day stuff to with a separate laptop compartment.

Massive Dakine Shower cap/ rain cover.

_SIM8983

_SIM8978

Nomad – Dakine’s answer to the Swiss Army knife – can carry your kit for a day; takes a full face and armour via straps or XC lid using the pocket on the front. 3L resevoir and a nice front organizer tool kit pocket.
