The Scout Series started with the Scout Pack, a scaled-down version of our world-famous canoe pack patented in 1882. The concept for the series arose when a New York Times fashion writer, who happened to be a long-time Duluth Pack fan, proposed the concept of the smaller bags. Duluth Pack has since added to the line with the Laptop Scout, the Scoutmaster, Laptop Scoutmaster, and the Deluxe Scoutmaster.

Looks Good, Feels Good, Works GoodReview by Gabe
I have been craving a Duluth Pack for some time but was hesitant about the price of these traditionally made bags. After checking the Duluth website shortly before my Yosemite trip I saw this rather new addition, the roll top scout. It immediately caught my eye. I like that it has an external zipper pocket, that comes in useful for little things you don't want loose in the main compartment. The roll top looks very attractive to my eyes, and I like that it keeps anything from falling out of the main compartment should the pack fall over or turn upside down. Also you can expand the volume of the pack as needed which is a great feature. I hand washed the pack before I first used it just to remove excess dye incase the pack got wet or I got really sweaty so the color wouldn't rub off on me or anything else, and it came out just fine after drying in the sun and applying some leather conditioner. It worked great in Yosemite carrying around a bunch of water bottles, snacks, and clothes for myself and my family on the trails. I looked good and felt good carrying it around on my back, like I was back in another age when goods were top quality, made in America, and built to last. These packs are handcrafted by real craftsmen and craftswomen, my was dated and handmade by "Angela," who will make yours? Get this fine backpack and you wont regret it. (Posted on 9/1/2014)

Bag is super nice but I think zipper should be a lot better (Posted on 7/26/2014)
Its AwesomeReview by Dan
A tad on the Small side but that is what I bought it fir, to be able to slide under the seat in front of me and not incur carry-on fees. I bring it to work every day. I will probably carry it with me forever. Worth every dollar. (Posted on 7/23/2014)
This bag is as good as it looksReview by Tanner
After receiving my pack in a timely manner, I was blown away by the quality. Dense, high-quality canvas, a thick, heavy-duty zipper, thick, genuine leather. I've never bought an item that didn't compromise durability, quality, or style. This pack covers all the bases. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 7/18/2014)
FantasticReview by Nick
I love this pack. I use it every day for school and weekend trips, it's extremely sturdy and versatile. I get many compliments on it where I live in Switzerland and tell everyone to get a DULUTH PACK. (Posted on 7/7/2014)
My CompanionReview by Glen
I bought this pack for day trips out snow shoeing, hunting and fishing, but it now goes with me almost any time I get away from the pavement. It is big enough for the essentials and small enough to keep from taking too much. I like the expandability. Well designed. I am trying to wear it out, but it looks like it may take a while!

Very good so farReview by Malcolm
I got this in waxed canvas, which so far (even in rainy Portland) has stood up very well, and does in fact keep the wet out. I've taken it on several short trips - even though the bag looks quite small, with efficient packing techniques, you can get a lot into it. It's comfortable enough, given the weight of what you could theoretically get into it, and a bit of strap adjustment does the trick to keep them from biting.

Overall, very satisfied so far. We'll see how it holds up for extended travel, hopefully soon. (Posted on 3/30/2014)
Perfect in every wayReview by Katherine
I ordered the Roll-Top Scout pack in waxed canvas. After I placed my order on-line I called the company to find out how how long it would take to get it. They checked their inventory and and said "we will make you one". How cool is that? Did I mention that I love this pack? Great functional design, retro look, solid materials and made by real Americans. This is a backpack you will have for the rest of your live. You will not be disappointed! (Posted on 12/17/2013)
