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.

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)

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)

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.
