The History of The Acoustic Guitar | Duluth Pack

The History of The Acoustic Guitar

Previously, we outlined the history of the beloved harmonica, which has been used in many of our favorite folk songs. The acoustic guitar is another one of our favorite instruments here at Duluth Pack because it is incredibly versatile. Whenever someone pulls out an acoustic guitar to play around a campfire, we are reminded of the beauty of music, and it warms up those chilly fall nights with its classic sound. This trusty instrument is used in multiple genres of music, with some of our favorites being folk, indie, and country. The acoustic guitar reminds us of hanging out with family and friends on summer nights. Today's post is dedicated to this beautiful instrument because, without it, music wouldn't be the same.

Minnesota's Logging Heritage | Duluth Pack

Minnesota's Logging Heritage

When you think of a lumberjack, what state are you thinking of? If you said Minnesota, you’re probably in the majority. According to the old folk tale of Minnesota, it is said that the state’s 10,000+ lakes were formed by none other than Paul Bunyan with each footprint leaving another lake as he explored the state. In fact, the first documented printed story of Paul Bunyan was right here in Duluth; published by the Duluth News Tribune in 1904. Before saws and modern logging equipment, lumberjacks in Minnesota relied primarily on axes to get the job done. At Duluth Pack, we have partnered with the highest quality outdoor companies, Hults Bruk and Gransfors Bruk to remind us of Minnesota’s role in the logging industry with top-quality axes and hatchets.
Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Gym Goer | Duluth Pack

Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Gym Goer

Today’s post is the last in our Father's Day Gift Guide 2020. This series has sought to help you find the perfect gift for your dad this Father’s Day, even if we aren’t able to physically be with him this year. We have already covered The Griller, The Hunter, The Fisherman, The Handy Man, and The Traveler. Today, we are focusing on The Gym Goer.

If your dad is a gym jock, we have a few recommendations for some gifts we know he’ll love. They will help him stay organized and look good while he’s working out. Here are some recommendations we have for your home jock.

Gym Bag: When going to the gym, it can be a hassle to carry all your necessary items in an organized and simple way. Gift your dad our Duluth Pack Gym Bag to make his trips to the gym even easier. We make the bag from our rugged canvas and has a separate area for your dad to store his shoes from his outfits and any other equipment he has. This bag is also versatile; if your dad travels for day trips at all, this bag would be perfect to hold his items.

Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Traveler | Duluth Pack

Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Traveler

Today we have a continuation of our Father’s Day Gift Guide that we have been covering in a few of our other blog posts. This gift guide focuses on the Traveler. This is the dad who loves sight-seeing and always has the travel bug. They are ready to get up and go at the drop of a hat and are always up for an adventure. This guide will help you to continue to fuel all your dad’s interests, even when he’s halfway across the world.

Whether your dad travels around your state, the USA, or the world, your friends at Duluth Pack have recommendations for your traveling dad to make his life easier. Having the right accessories while traveling is essential, and here at Duluth Pack. we want to provide you a list of all the items that your dad will surely appreciate on his next jet-set around the world, whether that be for leisure or business.

Fanny Pack: The fanny pack has been a staple in a dad’s style for generations. Gift your dad Duluth Pack’s Large Fanny Pack to help him accessorize for his travel needs. Whether it’s a family trip to Disneyland or a business trip to Amsterdam, the fanny pack is a great and practical choice to gift your dad this Father’s Day.

Travel Wallet: When traveling, it can be stressful when you don’t have everything in one place. Having credit cards in one place, a passport in another, and your ticket somewhere else can cause going through the airport to be a huge hassle. To make your dad’s traveling life easier, we recommend the Travel Wallet. Made with our traditional Olive Drab canvas and leather details, this travel wallet has pockets to hold your dad’s documents, airline tickets, passport, and credit cards. For the frequent flyer, this wallet is a must.  

Jet-Setter Duffel Pack: Perfect for your dad to carry while he’s traveling around the world, or across the US. The Jet-Setter Duffel Pack is perfect as a carry-on and can be worn and used in three different ways. Your dad can wear it as a backpack, carry it with the handles, or use its detached shoulder strap for easy access to grab-and-go. This pack will allow your dad to stay organized while he is on the go, which he will greatly appreciate.

Briefcase: Some of our dads travel because of work. Jet-setting around the world is a perk, but they rely on that travel for business. For this type of traveler, we recommend the Standard Briefcase. This briefcase is perfect for your dad’s regular daily commute but is also ideal for when he's traveling with his laptop and other necessities.

Travel Valet: Traveling by plane around the world is great, but some dads prefer road trips around the US instead to see all the beauty we have in our home country. For these traveling dads, we recommend our Canvas Travel Valet. This is perfect to hold your dad’s wallet, keys, credit cards, and more. It can be used in his car while traveling, his hotel room when he’s arrived at his destination, and can even be placed in his luggage if necessary. When not in use, it conveniently lies flat for easy storage. This will make your dad’s travel life even easier so that he can enjoy what matters: traveling.

Still unsure what to do? You could always allow your dad to decide for himself with a Duluth Pack e-gift card. For even more ideas, check out our Gifts For Him gift guide. We also recommend checking out our previous Father’s Day Gift Guides for The Griller, The Hunter, The Fisherman, and the Handy Man to find gifts that fill all your dad’s passions and interests.

Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Handyman | Duluth Pack

Dad's Day Gift Series: For The Handyman

For today’s Father’s Day Gift Guide, we are exploring the world of the Handyman. For many, our father is the house’s designated handyman, woodworker, plumber, and more. Sometimes this is out of necessity, but for a lot of our dads, working with tools is a hobby they love to fill their time with. Many of our dads have their own makeshift workshop in the garage, in the shed, or even just outside. Their workshop is their happy place, a place where they can relax and put their mind to work. They can watch something be built or fixed right before their eyes.

Your friends at Duluth Pack have some recommendations to enhance the handyman in your life’s experience in their workshop.
