We took our immensely popular Rambler Pack and scaled it down. In the process we created a super functional day pack with European flair. A roomy, top-loading compartment cinches shut with a drawcord. Topflap secures with two leather straps and roller buckles. Side pockets are spacious enough for a quart water bottle. Need easy access to your binoculars, point-and-shoot camera, wallet, keys, sunscreen or bug dope? Simply unbuckle the handy front pocket. (All this stuff actually fits in the front pocket!) Web shoulder straps.

New for 2012: Mossy Oak® New Break-Up® camouflage canvas!

Made in USA.

I've had this pack for 2 years now, and it's been on my back an awful lot. It is extremely durable, and performs admirably in all tasks. It also brings in a bunch of compliments. For a little extra personal comfort, I sent it back and had them add the padded leather straps, the sternum strap, and the grab handle. The customer service was outstanding. I can't recommend this pack enough! (Posted on 3/7/2015)

This pack, oh, where do i begin... This pack is great, definitely worth the money. I took it across seas for the summer during a 3 week class and an additional 3 1/2 weeks afterwards for some country-hopping. It not only got me through a very interesting trip over (main flight got delayed and took 3 connected flights to get there) as my main suitcase but also as a trusted backpack for school back in the states.

This pack can do many things, from hauling 31/2 weeks worth of clothes and toiletries to 50 lbs of textbooks and school binders. It is very durable in any kind of weather, rain, snow, or sun (had it in -40 degrees last winter and over 90 this past summer) but also almost anything you can pack in. I would recommend to anyone, there is nothing I can say that would be bad about it. It can survive international travel, it can survive college. (Posted on 2/26/2015)

I have had this pack for over 5 years....it has been back and forth across the country, east to west and north to south. This is my luggage getting there and my back pack while I'm there. Holds everything I need, has never given me a problem, and is durable....durable....durable. (Posted on 1/2/2015)

like love it would buy another . I got my 1st pack about 7/4/2012. after a recommendation by friends and reconfirmed of its worth seeing the likes of the such used from the Path finder school. I have more or less used it every day to date being I do not drive and walk every where I go. I put a trash can in mine to help fill out the pack. to make it easier to haul things or to protect the Canvas as like when hauling fire wood and up to 4 gal milk jugs with water or to stable the load when I use it to pack home my grocery's and even use it to go on camping hiking trips. {Nothing} yet to date of the hardware has failed to date. One of things I have liked and reason I bought this type was because where other types when the fabric failed and needed to be fixed it was not as easily done as this type .I have my self patched holes using leather and bank line . I am just now starting to see the Canvas on the bottom at the seams start to brake down and start to tear and that is my fault for not waxing it more. one thing I like about this type of pack v/s other types is for the very reason it can be fixed as like I have done when I need if out on long and or short fishing , camping and on hiking trips.

Review by Robert J. Hughes for Rating: I have a couple of these in dfeefrint sizes. They fit on the same frame so you only need one, if you want one at all. I like a frame because it keeps the bag off of my back and I am much cooler when I hike which is big here in Florida. The quality of the bag is excellent with plenty of easy to get at compartments. I would highly recommend it. (Posted on 7/16/2014)
perfect bagReview by rebe

Okay, I bought this for my husband years and years ago. He has taken this bag on many assignments and we have the photos to prove it. There's one photo of him standing in Thailand with tanks behind him during the coup. It has gone to ,probably Mongolia, Bangladesh ( he got all the easy assignments. ha ha. ) Hawaii( okay, that one actually was easy) and all over the U.S. He was once asked in an airport,"Is that a Duluth Pack?" Maybe that means we're in some unofficial club. My husband pretty much can destroy anything just by accident. This pack of his continues to look really good and is holding up great. Thanks . Oh yeh, the reason I'm on this web site is because I want to get a travel pack for myself. I had one , but a family member adopted it( not much chance they'll just give it back )Have a blessed day (Posted on 7/13/2014)

I am a full time grad student, part time explorer and this bag is just what I needed. The fabric is thick and durable. I have checked it numerous times over the last two years and not one stitch, not one strap, not one rivet was out of place. Awesome product I highly recommend it. (Posted on 12/19/2013)
Awesome packReview by Jeff

This thing has been dragged all over. I use it for over night camping trips.it's been thrown in the dirt and dragged up the side of trees. Using mine as a hunting pack I over load it and have no problems. My only problem is i can't afford to buy one for everyone I know, so they can experience the quality of an Amercian made pack.

Perfect for everything but hikingReview by tkohlhorst

I have used this pack for travel for light camping (aka car camping), to small hikes in the woods and have not found a single thing wrong with it. That is until I went on a weekend trip to the BWCA. I packed this bag for me to survive 2 nights in the woods and man what a pain in the but it was. Once I got this thing loaded up the bag wanted to do nothing more than sag back. There are no chest straps to keep the back pack standing upright and made for a very unease portage. I was literally shocked when I packed everything together and saw the performance of this backpack. That being said, it still is a great backpack but I will never take it to the BWCA unless I know for fact there will be ZERO portages. (Posted on 10/7/2013)

make a great pack even better with the padded strapsReview by ALASKA BILL

I have "updated" my review of this awesome pack already and will do so again. I would highly suggest and strongly recommend that if you decide to purchase this pack and if you will be hiking long distances, carrying weight... GET THE PADDED STRAPS ! the cloth straps that are on the this pack are wide but the pads will make a huge difference in comfort , most especially for the " older " hiker ( like me ) (Posted on 8/26/2013)

Having a love affair with this pack!Review by Alaska Bill
Rating
I submitted a review in April after having just received my pack,and was impressed in the quality and workmanship upon opening the package. Now after having carried it on several snow shoe outings and hikes, Im even more impressed. I did use Nikwax brand of waterproofing ( cloth and leather ) on the bag and straps and even in a late spring record snow fall for Alaska, this thing shed water and snow like a duck's backside. i tend to " over pack " and the roominess of the main bag is more then ample for all my gear. Several times folks have commented on the "coolness" of this pack and asked Where did i get it. I did add a piece of closed cell foam pad ( cut to fit ) to slip in the pack so that pointy/ hard items wont rub against my back. I am extremely pleased with this pack !

I would highly recommend this pack for serious hikers, trekkers, backpackers and for everyday use, and ... if ya want to be " COOL " (Posted on 5/18/2013)

Less then a week from placing my order and I received my pack. This is truly an "OLD SCHOOL " piece of equipment !! I opened the box ... and was immediately impressed wit the workmanship, the attention to detail and the quality of this pack. I have been backpacking since age 10 ( i am 69 ) and still at it. I haven't seen this level of quality in years! I have it fully loaded and will be taking out for a trial snowshoe hike tomorrow and can hardly wait. Im hoping to get 69 years of use out of this pack. Thank you for a great piece of gear! (Posted on 4/26/2013)

Lives up to the Duluth Pack reputation!Review by Martin
Rating
I bought my Wanderer just over a year ago. At that time I was little skeptical over spending the $ on the pack. I don't know why, since I already own several other Duluth packs and they are all fantastic.

Since I purchased mine (I went waxed canvas). I have been only pleased with this pack. It has been all over the US and Europe as well now. This has become my go to bag for almost any occasion. Work trips to other states, trips to the gun range, day pack for glacier hiking, thwart bag for a canoe trip; the list goes on and this pack performs admirably.

The side pockets are perfect for holding a Nalgene bottle. The front pocket holds me Nexus 7" tablet and sunglasses with room for a small notebook and deck of cards too. My only complaint is that I will the main compartment were a bit taller, maybe 3-4" or so. It would really let you capitalize on the versatility of this bag.

In the end, it has been a solid purchase. and I do not regret it one bit. In the last year mine has been dragged over rocks, soaked with water and frozen solid. I am pretty sure it is just getting broken in. I expect this will last for decades to come. (Posted on 12/16/2012)
