DAKOTA

Fully Convertible Travel Bag with 27 Features

DAKOTA

The bag to take you from the airport to the restaurant with efficiency and elegance.

DAKOTA is a women's travel bag that really deserves the name "CONVERTIBLE".

The vast majority of so-called "convertible" bags do not actually change their shape, nor their appearance, nor their carrying capacity. They simply allow you to add shoulder straps and carry the same bag differently.

DAKOTA is different, it's an authentic convertible bag.

A backpack sand and black color, a handbag sand color and a daypack

Thanks to its innovative, patented design, DAKOTA easily convert into:

- an elegant handbag, perfect for a dinner out or shopping in the city;
- a small, stylish daypack, ideal for all daily activities;
- a spacious travel backpack, perfect for longer trips and hikes.

Each of the three bag versions is designed so that you would never think they are the same bag. No one will ever imagine that the backpack you arrived at the hotel with and the handbag you go to dinner with are the same bag!

THE BENEFITS

ACCESSORIES

5 tailor-made accessories that make your DAKOTA even more functional and comfortable

Detachable Weight Reducer

As comfortable as your backpack may be, if you carry a lot of weight on your shoulders for long periods of time, discomfort or pain in your shoulders, neck and back is bound to occur. The only way to counteract these drawbacks is to distribute the weight of your backpack across your shoulders and other parts of your body, such as your chest or waist. And that's exactly what our detachable weight reducer does.

This simple accessory will help you:
1. reduce the weight on your shoulders;
2. maintain a correct posture;
3. stabilise the backpack in relation to your body;
4. have more freedom of movement;
5. prevent pain in your shoulders, neck and back

Detachable Leather Handle for Backpack

We know how annoying it is to handle a heavy backpack without a handle.

That's why we have equipped DAKOTA with an elegant leather handle that adds greater comfort and style to your backpack.

Of course, it is detachable - after all, we don't want to spoil the purity of your handbag's design!

Add the chain handle instead of the leather one and transform DAKOTA once more!

You can also use the chain as an elegant and practical keychain. Attach your keys to the bag and find them in no time.

This accessory comes with an elegant leather pouch coordinated with the bag.

High Strength-to-Weight Ratio Shoulder Strap Pads

Detachable shoulder strap pads with a high strength-to-weight ratio are an indispensable accessory to safeguard the well-being of your shoulders when you travel with a heavy bag.

Our shoulder strap pads have a special internal structure of two layers. The semi-rigid first layer ensures high shock absorbency and uniform weight distribution. The second soft layer provides maximum comfort to your shoulders.

When you don't use them, put them in the waterproof pouch and hook it to the bag.

Tailor-Made Rain Cover

The rain cover effectively protects your bag from water and dirt.

Customly designed for DAKOTA, this rain cover perfectly fits both the compact and extended version of the backpack and allows you to access inside even without removing it completely.

The reflective DRiiBE logo makes you more visible in low visibility conditions, increasing your safety on the road.

Has the sun come out again? Store the rain cover in its waterproof bag and hook it to the DAKOTA bag.
