Having a travel companion makes exploring the world a little less daunting, but traveling on your own is a refreshing experience. Solo traveling lets you embrace a new culture and build confidence while you're escaping that 9-5 routine. It's an adventure everyone should embark on at least once in their lifetime. Explore with an open mind and have your arms open to the world of opportunities that traveling holds.
Before wandering around the globe, keep your safety in mind too. There are rewarding experiences when going abroad, but when you're on your own, looking after your wellbeing is a must. These 7 safety tips while traveling solo will help you discover the liberating experiences of being solo while you explore.
Today, for our Father’s Day Gift Guide, we are going to focus on The Fisherman. This is the dad who gets up at the crack of dawn, ready for a serene morning on the boat. Fishing is dear to many of us here in Minnesota. In the land of 10,000+ lakes, fishing can be a way of life. Those early mornings on the boat with our dad are some fond memories that many of us share. Listening to the water quietly lapping around the boat, waiting for the fish to bite is an experience that provided many of us with peace and tranquility as we fished with our father.
Being able to gift your dad with something that will fulfill his love of fishing is a great option this Father’s Day. Here at Duluth Pack, we have many recommendations for our fishing dads to make their Father's Day special. We have gifts that we know will satisfy his fishing trips for the whole summer, and beyond.
Today’s post is a continuation of our Father’s Day Gift Guide series to help you find the perfect gift for that special man (or men) in your life. This gift guide is for The Hunter, focusing on all the products that your dad or father figure may need during a long day in the woods.
Hunting is a way that many of our dads reconnect and get out into nature. Some of us started hunting with our fathers when we were in our adolescence and have fond memories of preparing for hunting season and then being guided through our seasonal hunts. This is where we learned the importance of the field to fork mentality. Here at Duluth Pack, we have extensive resources to fulfill anything that your dad may want while hunting or preparing for the big hunt. Duluth Pack is proudly a licensee of the iconic camo company, Mossy Oak. Mossy Oak's legendary Bottomland print is available in an extensive line of shooting sports and lifestyle equipment in the Duluth Pack flagship store and online at DuluthPack.com.

We recommend trying out the Turkey Chair, to make your dad’s hunting trip a bit more comfortable. This chair can easily be carried to your dad’s hunting stand for a simple way to stay comfortable while hunting. This is something that your dad’s back and bottom will surely appreciate.
Accessories: One of the most useful gifts you can give the hunter in your life would is anything that will help him with his gun. Try out our floating shotgun case, which will keep your dad’s gun safe for those rugged days hunting.
