Rating: Great Boat Bag
Reviewer: Roy Stevens  -  View all my reviews
I have used a backpack style boat bag for many years and as I have gotten older, the strain has become more than I care to bear. This roller boat bag fits the bill perfectly. It is nice size and well made and should hold up for many years. If youre looking for a great boat bag, this is it.

Rating: Im happy, my back is happier
Reviewer: maureen d.  -  View all my reviews
This roller bag worked great during my recent trip to Cozumel. I previously used a nice mesh bag but it used to be such a challenge to get all my gear from my room to the taxi, marina and then boat and even harder at the end of the day when everything was wet and heavier..and I was tired. This year was so much better and easier. Everything fit into this bag with a bit of room to spare and I was impressed with the quality overall. It did take a couple easy adjustments to strap lengths to find the best length for smooth rolling. After my gear was out, the bag folded small enough to fit under the boat seat. The dry pockets are large enough for shirts, hats, towel, etc. The base and wheels are very stable but just a bit larger than I anticipated, so I was wary of using as carry-on and folded this bag in my checked luggage without any problem. I did make a trip to the airport and found that if it was only 1/2-1/3 full probably could get by using as carry-on so I think I might try that next time. If I could be assured of using as carry-on, I would give 5 stars.

Rating: Akona Mesh Roller Backpack
Reviewer: Ralph B.  -  View all my reviews
I have 2 Akona Roller Mesh Backpack that I purchase from Scuba. com, One for my wife and one for me. First of all, the the service was great, I received the bags in a couple of days after placing the order with Scuba. Com. I own the Akona Mesh bag without wheels, all thought it too is an excellent bag, We were in Key West this summer, and had to walk at least 1/2 mile back to the hotel. The dive equipment was wet coming back form the trip and it was very heavy on my back!! Also, I had to carried my wifes equipment as well. The tempature around 90 degrees. "Tough work-out". My wife and myself went diving last week, use the Akona Roller Mesh Backpack, and pull the equipment back to the Jeep, what a difference! Save your money and back, buy the Akona Mesh bag with wheels. The bag is large enough to hold all of dive equipment , also towels . Construction of bags seems tough enough to handle any dive trip. Johnny B. Advance Diver. PADI

Rating: Good Roller Bag
Reviewer: Autumn H.  -  View all my reviews
Only used it twice. Both the bag and wheels feel pretty durable. Nice to have wheels to lug around heavy wet equipment and backpack straps to carry if necessary. Pulling the bag with the soft handle can get a bit squirrelly. So you need to make sure the bag is firmly tilted before you start to pull.

Rating: Roller bag
Reviewer: Vicki L.
This is a wonderful product. When I have a distance to travel to reach the dive it is exhausting carrying my dive bag. I am a small woman and especially after the dive when all the gear is wet it would make it difficult to get back to home base. I love my original Akona bag, however the Akona roller bag is the answer for me. Thank you.

Questions and Answers for Akona Mesh Roller Backpack Bag:


  • Jeff:

    im looking to put ~50lb. of gear and weights in herewill this bag hold up? i have some of the akona bags for lead weights and they are really solid. not sure what the intent of the backpack is though. any advice or insight appreciated

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This bag is designed for dive gear but not weights. 50lbs is a lot for this bag. All roller bags should not be used for tanks or weights.

  • Shiwei:

    Just wondering if these backpacks are big enough for both wetsuite and BC, together with all other stuff(of course, no weight in it....)Seems no product has mentioned whether a BCD can be fit in

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes you can fit a full set of gear in this bag.

  • Kathleen:

    I cant see from the picture where the side zipper is located. Does the zipper allow you to access all of your gear without having to go in through the top which I know is closed with a tie? In other words is it easy to get all the gear out without having to go thru the top?

  • Dawn:

    Is the Akona Mesh Roller Backpack Bag see through?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes it is very see through. The mesh helps your gear to dry and it also makes it easer to find items at the bottom of the bag. If you are looking for something that you need a little more security (not see through) with wheels it would be changing over to the Akona roller duffel bag: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-75/018808/Akona-Roller-Duffel-Dive-Bag-for-2014.html

  • Tracy:

    How much does this weigh?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Good morning, the weight is 5.8 Lbs.

  • Casey:

    I am in the market for a new scuba bag. This bag seems to do it all. However, I am curious if this bag can easily be folded and put into a suit case for traveling purposes? If possible, do you have any dimensions on what size it is when folded? Can it be folded within itself?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Casey, you can''t fold it in on itself but it will lay flat. This bag takes up no room is a carry-on or checked bag.
