Bushcrafter Pack

Made in America
For those rugged individuals who demand a pack that can not only survive, but thrive in a wilderness setting, the Bushcrafter Pack is the new standard. Designed by founder and head instructor Mike Lummio of Bushcraft Northwest, the Bushcrafter Pack is loaded with technical features that will carry everything you need and nothing you don’t.

  • Burly 15-ounce canvas construction.
  • Specifically designed to be low profile and narrower in width to allow easy navigation through heavy brush.
  • Unique features like an 18” long axe sleeve and two double front pockets that can hold a folding saw and replacement blades.
  • Padded leather/canvas shoulder straps with adjustable sternum strap and removable waist belt.
  • Three nylon webbing side compression straps keep your load stable and allow for pack to be either increased or scaled back in capacity depending on the season or conditions.
  • Weight: 4.5lbs (for waxed canvas add .75lb)
  • Guaranteed for life. Made in the USA.

Starting with tough 15-ounce canvas construction, the Bushcrafter Pack features padded leather/canvas shoulder straps, an adjustable sternum strap, a removable waist belt, a unique 18” long axe sleeve, a drawstring closure for the main compartment, and a generous top flap with interior zippered map pocket that covers and stabilizes axe head when pack is in use. Three nylon webbing side compression straps with quick release buckles stabilize your load, while also making it possible to scale down or enlarge total capacity depending on season and space needs. In addition, pack includes two flapped front pockets and two specially designed folding saw (and extra blades) pockets with weep holes. Also available in Waxed Canvas. Made in USA.

What a Pack
I just got it in the mail this week and can't believe how big it really is. Quality hand made and tough. Can't wait to put it to the test. I will be headed into the woods as soon as the holidays are over. I've been trying out different gear in it and it hold everything I need. If you want to go a little old school and have a well made great looking pack then this is it. Review by Survival Guy (Toney) (Posted on 12/7/2016)
unbelievable quality
I purchased this pack on amazon, because of my amazon credit card points. i was conflicted between this pack and frost river because of the price, i am so glad i choose Duluth pack, my friend purchased frost river version, the quality of mine is far superior, the color and texture compared to his, my father was correct you get what you pay for, thank you Duluth pack Review by buzzboa (Posted on 3/23/2014)
Hunter's Day pack
I was gifted this pack a couple years ago, and use it from canoeing, hiking, but mostly for hunting. I abuse the heck out of it. I can stuff the large main compartment with extra clothing layers and safety harness plus food, etc, strap tree climbing sticks to the side with the straps, and attach my treestand on the back of it with carabiners to the D-rings. I've even strapped my rifle to the side with the 3 side straps. You can snug them down very tight, and while I initially was skeptical of the plastic clasps and nylon straps, they haven't failed me yet. The zippered pocket in the top flap is a bit awkward to use, and I wish it had one or two additional smaller zippered pouches on the interior, other than that this pack has served me very well, and I couldn't recommend it more.

Still cant believe I own this High Quality Pack!
My best friend bought this for me as a gift, and all I can say is: "Wow!" Not only is this thing a work horse, I got so many compliments along the trail as I was hiking. Just the perfect pack for me and my son as we explore parts of Ohio and Tennessee. Thank you Duluth Pack for making such a wonderful High Quality Pack. And I love that it's American made!! These day's we need more American company's delivering High quality good's like Duluth Pack. Well done!!!! Review by Stephen (Posted on 4/19/2012)
Cheap stiching and plastic clips.
My grandfather bought this pack while I was on deployment in Iraq last year in hopes that I would join him on a few day hikes when I got back. Sadly he passed away last month and in his memory I decided to Take a day hike on his favorite trail in loyal sock, Pa. After driving eight hours from Norfolk, Virginia and staying in a dirty bed and breakfast I packed my bush rafter and hit the trail. About two hours in a I took a break only to unDue my left outside pocket and have he metal Button to come apart. Also the sternum Strap is coming unstiched. Even tho it's a life time guarantee I can't return this item being it was te last gift from my grandfather. It's a shame an American made product made so poorly.

We are deeply sorry to hear about your experience with your Bushcrafter Pack. Please contact our customer service team at: [email protected] or call 1-800-777-4439, we would be more than happy to discuss repairing your pack for you. Thank you for your feedback!

Get rid of the nylon please!
I was given this bag for the holidays. I got rid of it due to the plastic/nylon. Why can't you switch to leather and brass already? The plastic and nylon looks tacky and completely out of place. Otherwise, it was a fine looking pack I'd loved to have owned.

Thank you for your feedback! The reason we opted for nylon side cinch straps is because with the nylon, you can get a nice tight fit, significantly more so than using a leather strap with a roller buckle. If you'd like, we can custom make our Bushcrafter Pack with the leather cinch straps on the side. Please call our Customer Service Department if you are interested (1-800-777-4439).

Lost with the perfect pack
Shortly after recieving my Bushcrafter I packed her up and headed to Allegheny National Forest with some friends. Decided to bushwack and got lost overnight. One of the best days of my life other than the fact that I knew my friends were worried. I had absolutely everything I needed for several days if necessary in an extremely comfortable pack. The generous volume and narrow profile are perfect for bushwacking. Very comfortable, great design, and extremely well built. Strong Work Duluth. Review by Dale (Posted on 9/15/2011)
Surprisingly comfortable, and holds everything
I was looking for a large pack that would hold everything I need for oil painting, and also be comfortable enough to carry on hikes to remote locations. This is it! I couldn't be happier with the design and convenience of this pack. The tall pockets in front are perfect for small items, including brushes and water bottle. The main compartment holds my large 12" x 14" wooden paint box easily, along with extra clothing, lunch, turp can, sketchbook. The central location of the axe pocket in front is what initially sold me on it - perfect for the tripod I use to support the paint box, and awkward to stow in conventional packs. The nylon compression straps on the sides make this pack easily adjustable in volume, and for my use, leather would not be as functional, adding weight and bulk, as well as additional time spent in adjusting and securing the load. The only change I made is that I had Duluth add another pair of D-rings further up on the shoulder straps, - I'm small (5'4") and the sternum strap was placed too low for me. This is the best pack I've ever used - not too heavy either. I commonly carry about 25-30 pounds, and I can carry it easily and find it very comfortable in this pack. I love the rugged looks of the thing too, and the fact that it will probably outlast me. Review by Mary (Posted on 6/26/2011)
Great Pack
Got mine and it fit right off. Loaded it up and took it on the trail. The most comfortable pack I have ever had on. I would recommend some loops on the belt to hang a GPS and such on. But other than that it is perfect.
When I loaded it up and put it on I was just flabbergasted at the fit. The padded shoulder straps are just the right length so they don't cut into your arm. No fancy S shapes are needed. It's a big pack but the compression straps make it easy to adjust the volume. And you get to walk standing straight up. It's kinda spendy but well worth the price. Now if I can just live long enough to wear in out. :)

great pack!
A wicked pack in all aspects! While I agree with some of the other statements regarding the use more natural or traditional materials, the designer may have had good reasons for selecting nylon, so I won't count that as a negative against it. Otherwise, it's logically engineered and versatile plus, it's built like a Panzer tank! Review by Mic (Posted on 8/21/2010)
I saw this pack on a Youtube video and was intrigued. It was not yet listed in the Duluth website and the video responses said it was a custom pack. I received an email from Harpoon who informed me the pack was listed on the site. Details showed it was designed by Mike Lummio of Bushcraft Northwest who also designed the BCNW-01 Bushcraft Knife which I own and is one of my favorites.

Like many bushcraft practioners, I am always on the lookout for practical, durable gear. I own several backpacks, but they are either too large or too small. As mentioned in an earlier post, recently my outings are 2-3 days usually 2-3 miles into the woods, so I'm not looking for aerospace suspension and superultra light weight materials. I need a tough, practical mid-size pack. I was also gravitating towards traditional materials like a Duluth type pack. I've grown tired of mil-spec OD green and SWAT black nylon.
Enter the Duluth Bushcrafter. I emailed Mike Lummio and he gave me some details about the pack. Based on his recommendation, I placed an order. Found out that the base price of $370.00 went up to $395.00 in waxed canvas. I was going on a canoe trip in Maine and thought this could be the pack.

A few days later, I received a call from Molly at Duluth who advised me that I was the first person to order this new pack. I told Molly when I needed the pack by and she assured me they would try to make the deadline as the packs are made one at a time.
The pack arrived 3 days prior to my departure date which gave time to play. First impressions;
Very heavy duty 18 oz. waxed canvas. Straps are leather and securely stitched and also heavy duty. Side compression starps , nylon with fastex type buckles. Weight on my digital fish scale 4 pounds, 9 ounces. The capacity is listed as between 3900 and 4200 cubic inches.

I like the two front pockets with sleeves behind for a folding saw or similar items. An axe sleeve which I like as axes are sometimes hard to pack and secure. On this pack just slip it into the sleeve and it's secure and protected. I packed the pack for my trip. It carried sleeping bag, pad, tent and poles, tarp, clothes, all tools, water and cooking gear. I didn't line the pack with plastic as I wanted to test the water repellency of the waxed canvas. All items were in waterproof stuff sacks as a precaution.
The pack carries well even with upwards of 40 pounds of weight. Tha padded leather and canvas which feel great. The hip belt also helps stabilize the load.
How did it perform?

The pack did great!! When placed in the canoe, it was wet from rain and river water, yet didn't absorb much. No water was transferred into the pack. On portages, it carried very confortably compared to traditional canoe packs. I was never in fear of damage when it was placed on the wet, muddy ground. Though dirty and used, it gained character and has more of that "just belongs" look of Duluth products. For me personally, this pack fills a void in my equipment allowing flexibility for many outings from overnight to longer trips. This is my new favorite go to pack.
Hats off to Mike Lummio and Duluth Pack.

Leather straps & waist belt would add weight and cost
Reminds me of my BSA Yuca Back Pack I used from Philmont to National Jamboree in the 60's. Lots of places to put water bottles. Maybe add an interior zip pocket to put smaller items. Review by Chief (Posted on 8/4/2010)
Bushcrafter Pack works as it should
Well designed with the true outdoorsman in mind. Duluth Pack quality in all respects. GREAT JOB! Review by Mark (Posted on 7/17/2010)
Great Pack
Bought on last year and I have used it for winter camping as well as canoe trips into BWCA. The nylon straps does not bother me at all. Would recommend to a friend Review by Bjørn (Posted on 7/12/2010)
leather is better
This pack looks fantastic, but I will hold off on buying it until it's redesigned with leather instead of nylon. Review by dinosaur (Posted on 7/4/2010)
Please replace nylon with leather
I considered purchasing this pack too, but I agree with debiant. Replace the nylon with leather, and I'll buy it. Review by Tom (Posted on 4/22/2010)
Bushcrafter Pack
Excellent pack, had mine two months, and been everywhere with me. Only thing to make it perfect to me if the two pockets were wide enough to take a NATO waterbottle and metal mug. That owuld have been spot on! Review by AJ (Posted on 4/3/2010)
I don't own this pack...
As my Summary states I don't own this pack, but was hoping that I could help a little with a possible modification to it. The pack is beautiful with one MAJOR exception. There is nylon webbing on this pack. I think most people that purchase Duluth packs (and certainly the major reason I've considered purchasing a Duluth pack) want the timelessness and natural look and feel provided by Leather, Cotton, and metal. I would love to see this pack redesigned for next year with a leather hipbelt and compression straps. I could definitely see myself purchasing this pack with such modifications.
