The Perfect Made in the USA Pack For The North Shore
Summer is officially here, and the wilderness is calling. In Duluth, we are blessed to be surrounded by breathtaking views along with amazing hiking and camping opportunities. With living on Lake Superior and being only a couple of hours away from the Boundary Waters, there is no lack of potential nature traveling options. So, while you’re planning for your next camping trip around Duluth, be sure to make time for some backpacking. Let's find you the perfect Made in the USA pack for exploring the North Shore of Minnesota.
The North Shore runs from Duluth to the northern tip of Minnesota and then continuing through Ontario along Lake Superior. The swath of coastline is famous because of its diverse shoreline. It features alternating rocky cliffs, cobblestone beaches, rolling wooded hills, and rivers that run into the lake. With countless places to stop and hike or camp, this strip of nature is right up our alley!
There are eight state parks along the North Shore, all of which offer opportunities for hiking. One of the most famous hiking trails and most optimal for backpackers is the Superior Hiking Trail. This trail offers more than 300 miles of hiking and is divided into seven different sections that align with some of the state parks. It is the perfect place to plan a backpacking trip.
One thing that is a must while you’re planning for your trip is bringing the right pack. You should decide what type of hiking you’re going to be doing while on your excursion along the North Shore. Are you going to be stopping and hitting all the state parks and exploring the shoreline, or are you set on a genuine hiking trip?
The Wanderer is the ideal pack If you’re looking to camp out for a weekend. Or maybe spend a night in one of the National Parks. The Wanderer is a 24-L volume pack along with two 40oz water-bottle pockets on either side making it the perfect outdoor pack. This pack also features flexible cotton straps for comfort and a spacious front pocket that offers quick access to essentials.
The Deluxe Roll-Top Scout is one of the most versatile packs that we handcraft. As its name suggests, this pack features a roll-top to accommodate more items for a longer trip. This pack also sits tight against your back so no shifting or bulky feeling while you’re walking. The Deluxe Roll-Top Scout makes for a great every-day backpack because of its sleek and stylish design!
