A WorkhorseReview by Sololoon
I've had my Duluth Rutstrum Pack now for one year and have taken it out on three trips into the northern woods of Maine. My pack was custom fitted with padded shoulder straps, sternum strap and a waist belt. This pack is a work of art and is built like a tank. It withstood the abuse I gave it and easily fit all of my gear, including enough food for a week long trip. It was comfortable to wear even after a three mile portage! The only advice I have would be to pack carefully (following Duluth's advice) and consider slipping a foam pad in the back to make it more comfortable to wear. I am looking forward to getting another pack for my newborn son when he's old enough. Too bad Duluth doesn't make baby carriers! (Posted on 9/6/2013)

Fantastic productReview by 2k
I just received my pack today, first rutstrum in waxed canvas. I also had Duluth install the front portage kit. The quality is top notch, I mean TOP notch. For all of you looking at this pack be prepared, it is large. I wanted something this big that way I could expand, I am also a large guy; 6'3 275lbs. It holds everything I will ever need and then some. I don't mind the weight though. I plan on taking it for its first adventure in the next couples weeks and I will update if needed. I venture to guess the break in period will be at least a few weeks of use. I look forward to putting many miles behind me with is pack on my back. (Posted on 2/21/2012)
