My favorite packReview by pspaladi
Rating
I currently own three Duluth Pack packs and the Rambler is my favorite. It is the perfect size for day paddle trips when I want/need to bring some extra gear or as my "small" pack on overnight paddling trips. I also have used it on many scout outings with my son (he packs his clothes and sleeping bag in it). It is extremely well made and I have had no complaints with the workmanship/craftsmanship for the past eight years. I prefer the front zippered pocket to the buckle type, simply because it makes it easier to get to the small items. The shoulder straps are very comfortable, but I tend to agree with some of the other reviewers that leather straps would be nice to have. My only complaint is that I purchased my Rambler before waxed canvas was available. Overall, a great pack. (Posted on 7/20/2010)
A great pack, except for the shoulder strapsReview by Rawredmeat
Rating
I've carried this pack for 7 summers on multiple BWCA trips, and it's never let me down. Two improvements I would suggest:
1. Get rid of the canvas shoulder straps! After 3 days of sun and bug bites, the LAST thing I want to have mashing into my shoulders are two dirty, grit filled, rough canvas shoulder straps! The simple leather straps that are standard issue on all othe Duluth Packs would be a MAJOR improvements. I personally had mine replaced with the deluxe straps, and look forward to using it this summer!
2. A couple of lash points on top for raingear/drying stuff would be great.
3. I'd love to see it souped up a bit like the new "northwoods pack"- the sleeves behind the two front pockets are brilliant! (Posted on 7/19/2010)
Perfect size for me!Review by bjr

I bought the waxed canvas for additional weather protection in the BWCA. It's the perfect size for ALL of my gear for a 4 day trip. I also use it as my weekender bag for trips to the lake. I love this bag! (Posted on 7/15/2010)
Perfect for scoutcraft & fishing (and canoeing) Review by GrowUp-DaveyBoy
Rating
I have owned my Rambler for 4 years. I use it at least monthly for overnight fairly primitive scoutcraft explorations in Olympic National Forest and fishing trips all over the rainy Olympic Peninsula in Washington. I also use it for dayhikes all the time. Mostly I use it with an 18-inch pack basket, which fits pretty tightly, but offers great protection to my gear and my back. It also makes organization easier. I usually leave the basket at home for dayhikes. Have used it to haul all my personal gear on a weeklong camping/fishing trip along the Yukon River, and for a week in the Boundary Waters this past Summer.
This pack has never let me down. It's extremely durable, and versatile. I can't remember what I paid for it, but it has certainly turned out to be a better value than something cheaper. Still looks almost new. I love the pockets. I love the whole pack. It never disappoints.
If you don't use a pack basket, it works well to put one of those folding canoe seats right inside the back,. That helps it keep its shape -- making it easier to pack and un-pack. It also protects your back from hard/pointy gear.
I can't think of anything I don't like about the Rambler. Might love it even more with leather shoulder straps, but that's picking nits. (Posted on 4/16/2010)

Rambling On!Review by Him

I’ve used this pack for day trips on the AT as well as a book bag for college, not mention the occasional overnight trip. It has held up and performed well. I would not recommend this particular pack for long hikes with heavy loads due to poor weight distribution. But overall a great pack for short trips. (Posted on 8/22/2008)
My new hunting partnerReview by The Chateauguay Kid

I mainly use my Rambler to pack extra clothes when heading to my hunting spot in order to avoid overheating. It is big enough to hold my wool jacket as well as the other items that accompany me, like a seat pad, extra gloves, reading material, thermos of coffee, and a bite to eat.

It was nice to be able to find a pack that was put together with quality as a primary concern - not cost. Thick leather straps and copper riveting much the same as my old canvas pack that I had to finally retire after 35 years.

It gets a 4 from me because buckles and straps are fiddly to deal with when you have gloves on. That's just a fact of that type of closure, though and I wouldn't change a thing about this pack. (Posted on 6/18/2008)
Tough as Nails! Review by Thomas
Rating
I used this pack for an overnight trip in Killarney Ontario this summer, and I loved how durable it was. I have the waxed canvas version which blocks most water but most importantly I know I can toss this pack on the rocks to rest and I dont have to worry about it. The leather straps are as tough as they come and the canvas is fantastic. You can beat this bag down and throw whatever you want at it and it WILL hold, you have my word. My only issue is that it could use maybe a back pad and a waist strap for extra support and possibly a metal not plastic zipper. Nevertheless a great looking pack that gets plenty of looks!

I use this pack for day hikes, overnight campouts, and car trips. The thing I like the most about this pack is its toughness. I have taken it through some thick brush that would have ripped synthetic materials. It is very comfortable also...for short trips. My back was sore after hiking 16 miles with the Rambler filled to capacity. (Posted on 1/15/2008)
