#4 Deluxe Duluth Pack - Canoe Pack

Just because a canoe pack is built like a brick wall doesn’t mean it has to feel like one. The #4 Deluxe Duluth Pack is built to last and carries a lot, but includes some extra creature comforts to make the roughest of portages feel just a little shorter. Made in Olive Drab or Waxed Canvas. All other colors made to order.

  • Tough 15-ounce canvas construction with removable waist belt.
  • Soft padded leather shoulder straps riveted for extra reinforcement.
  • Large single compartment with built in map pocket.
  • Specifically contoured to fit the confines of a canoe.
  • Rides low to allow the carrying of a canoe while also wearing the pack.
  • Comes with a heavy duty 6ml poly liner and a tumpline.
  • Guaranteed for life. Made in the USA.



Same gear swallowing dimensions and capacity as our #4 Original Duluth Pack, but with soft padded leather shoulder straps and a waist belt to provide additional comfort while traveling that 515 rod portage.

Comes with a thick replaceable poly liner and tumpline. Also available in Waxed Canvas. Made in USA.

Cornerstone of the portageReview by Malcom
This is my second Duluth pack. Of the 8 packs I own this is my go to for trips with portages. The first pack I bought some 20 years ago has seen many trips and although well used shows no rips or tears. The deluxe pack I recently bought already has rips and abrasions. I would definitely buy my next pack with the higher grade canvass. I also recommend caring for the leather straps. I have friends that never oil the leather and it eventually dries out and cracks. I treat my leather straps with Nor-v-gen leather waterproofing and the leather continues to wear well to this day. Soft and Supple. (Posted on 7/19/2010)
A ClassicReview by Ed
What can I say? This is a classic when it comes to canoe packs. It's shape nestles into the bottom of your canoe distributing its weight evenly without shifting, which is a huge plus for me. On portages, it rides a little low on the back, but it was never intended for extended land hauls. I recommend the DP shoulder pads as they are extraordinarily comfortable. Craftsmanship here is bomb-proof. I've logged many a mile with this pack on land and water and I've not so much as heard a seem pop. I love this thing! (Posted on 9/9/2009)
I LOVE this pack!Review by Ben E
This is the first Duluth Pack I've bought for camping, and I am EXTREEMLY happy with it. The padding on the shoulder straps make it more than worth the extra money for the delux version. It has a nice capacity, is relatively comfortable to carry, and like all Duluth Packs, is nearly indestructable. I would also recomend the side pockets for some extra storage and a map case if you love BWCA camping as I do.
