Received this as a Christmas gift this year, have used it once so far and am very happy with it, I do hope that the leather softens as it did cause a little irritation on my shoulder as I am used to a padded strap. I love the look of it and totally love how much it holds.
Looking forward to many years of use -hiking, being #1 but I do travel several times a year, so it will also come in handy on the plane as I can stuff it full. Thank you

classic!

I have had this pack for about a month now and I have to say that it has been serving me well. I did have a problem with the leather straps digging into my shoulders, but after moistening the straps with some water and wearing the pack for a hike, the straps moulded themselves to my body shape and now the pack fits like a well worn pair of shoes!

Love my custom Classic Rucksack!

Just got my custom Rucksack, and it is love at first sight. I've been eyeing this pack for over 2 years and finally made the plunge. Added a top grap loop, 2 side lash tabs, and a hanging pocket on the inside for just a bit more money. Duluth was wonderful answering all my questions and getting back to me with my requests. The pack is gorgeous and just how I wanted it. The waxed canvas is beautiful and substantial. The leather straps will need breaking in, but I know from experience that once they are broken in this will be my most comfortable pack. And a huge thank you to Carolyn for making me such a wonderful pack! I can't say enough about the customer service and the quality workmanship. I will continue to recommend Duluth to my family and friends. Review by backpackmidwife (Posted on 11/30/2012)
Great looking and functional pack/purse

I used this rucksack on my trip to Washington. It has all the room you need for day hiking and more. I had two light jackets with me, camera, kindle, wallet, and water bottles for 4 people. It is larger in capacity than it looks on the picture. Only drawback I experienced is that the straps are really wide and hard, and are placed so far apart that the leather in between the straps tends to buckle out and stabs you in between the shoulders. Duluthpack should sew the straps closer together on the top and that will be fixed. Other than that, awesome pack in looks and functionality. I will be using this every day, so I'm hoping when the leather wears a bit the issues will be resolved. Thanks Duluth pack, I love your product. Review by Lola (Posted on 8/12/2012)
Great little pack

I've had this pack for 7 years...used and abused all over Alaska. Way better than any nylon pack ever made. My only wish is for a slightly larger version. Review by Hodgeman (Posted on 5/15/2012)

After lusting after my partner's Rucksack, I finally got one about 2 yeas ago. What a great pack. Here a a few of my favorite things: 1) low profile when not full. 2) fits easily and well over a winter coat! 3) comfortable on a bicycle, 4) leather top flap doubles as a mat for a packed lunch, 5) holds a surprising amount of stuff. It's built to last--about a year ago, my big dog chewed a 1-inch tear into the beefy leather strap. I was able to stitch it closed with leather lacing, and it has performed perfectly since. That says a lot. Recently, our Rucksacks accompanied both of us to New Zealand (along with my Rambler). It was simply perfect on the plane, in the airport, on city walks and bike rides, hiking on beaches, and on the grueling 1-day Tongariro Crossing. And it looks great.

This bag has been all around the world with me. I use it to commute to work on my bicycle, to travel internationally. Breaks in nicely over time. Quality is superb. Review by samiam (Posted on 2/17/2011)
Best in its class

First of all the picture on the website does not show the true beauty of this pack. I am constantly getting compliments on how nice this pack looks. But looks is not why I purchased this pack. This pack is great! It holds more than you would think. In the main compartment there is enough room for a rolled up windbreaker type jacket, extra t-shirt, water bottle, a couple of books and magazines, toiletries, PSP, small laptop and lunch with room to spare. The external pocket is perfect for passport, small notepad/pens, mini flashlight, ipod, keys, wallet etc...The leather straps are more comfortable than any padded modern pack I have owned. It is a perfect size for air travel. This pack also slips on and off with ease yet fits snug to your back above the waistline. The construction is solid. I also love that when you open up the main compartment, right next to the Duluth tag is an American flag tag, reminding me how much it is worth it to pay a few extra bucks for a quality American product. The only down side to this pack is that it does not have a hand carry loop on top but this pack is so good it really does not matter. Review by Outstanding Bag (Posted on 7/15/2010)

Keep it in the car/boat for the impromptu short hike or picnic, have had it for only six months but is wearing in nicely, it is very secure on the back and stays put when exploring off the trail and almost forget its there. It caries my favorite picnic foods and a poncho with ease. Review by ddmac (Posted on 7/15/2010)
