How To Find the Right Backpack

How to Find the Right Backpack

The summer is almost over and schools all over America are about to resume to at least some degree. This means back to school shopping is still a reality, even if it looks a bit different this year. Pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, and of course - backpacks. Every year in the USA, millions of backpacks are purchased for back to school season. This trend has only been increasing over time. The problem is most backpacks are not built to last. Many backpacks marketed to children only last for a couple of years, if that. This year, rather than shelling out money for another cheap backpack, why not invest in a quality Made in America product that will last? Plus, it's the most sustainable option, because of the elimination of trash in landfills around the globe. One backpack can make a difference.

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.

History of the Harmonica | Duluth Pack

History of the Harmonica

The harmonica has a long history in many different music genres, most notably blues, jazz, and American folk music. Here at Duluth Pack, we are fans of folk music because a lot of Duluth’s music scene has roots in folk music. Bob Dylan and Trampled by Turtles, famous for their folk style, both came out of the Northwoods and helped put Duluth on the map. Furthermore, music with the harmonica reminds us of sitting around a fire and cracking a cold beverage open during the summer with loved ones, which is something we desire. Today’s post is an homage to and a history of the harmonic, which has provided depth and beauty to music for centuries.

The History of Smokey The Bear | Duluth Pack

The History of Smokey The Bear

Smokey Bear is a famous hero and symbol for wildfire prevention and forest conservation, with virtue and determination, Smokey Bear creates a tone and widespread message of the importance for awareness and protection of the natural beauty of our environment and forests. Smokey Bear is the ultimate symbol for prevention and care and America’s wildlife protector. The idea of Smokey Bear was created on August 9th of 1944, when an Ad Council and the U.S. Forest Service concurred that a fictional bear would be the ideal emblem to constitute their joint effort of promoting wildfire precautions. An artist by the name of Albert Staehle painted the very first poster of Smokey Bear and was accredited for designing imagery to go along with this iconic symbol of America. On the poster, Albert Staehle conveyed a fictional bear pouring a bucket onto a fire with the caption, “Care will prevent 9 out of 10 fires!” The image of Smokey Bear became extremely popular and widely apparent to the mass audiences of America, as he appeared on many fire prevention advertisements and fire prevention materials. Then in 1947, Smokey Bear’s official slogan transformed into, “Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires!”
