57 Review(s)
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.

This pack was featured in the NBC show Love in the Wild.

Availability: In stock

Best Pack and Best Service.Review by Keith
This is a well made pack. It saved my back from injury in an ATV accident. What damage was done to the pack was repaired by the great folks at Duluth Packs. Again the best. (Posted on 10/23/2012)
Been a good yearReview by Auburn Catfish
Had this for over a year now. Have used it to day hiked all over southern Applachian trails. Only (small) complaint is the draw string in annoying - coming out and refusing to stay in the plastic draw. The pack itself will probably last a couple lifetimes though. (Posted on 8/25/2012)
Tuffest pack I've used in years.Review by Noz
While on my back this pack held tite through an ATV accident and saved my back from grapefruit size rocks. (Posted on 8/20/2012)
Deer Camp 2012 - Bring It On!Review by Straussjoe
Hi all!
I have owned two DP "wanderer" packs for nearly five years. I have used my wanderer to travel from Utah to Duluth and further north to deer camp for the past two years and plan on the doing the trek again, this November. I ALWAYS have to stop in to DP at Canal Park on the waterfront of Lake Superior to what they have new in stock. The wanderer is an 'all-around' versatile pack that equaly the reputation of any other pack that DP has in its inventory. In addition, it is a fantastic pack to take as your only 'carry-on' to the aircraft and easily stowes under your seat or in the storage bins above your seat. Do not delay...get the wanderer today! You will not be disappointed...as you will not be for ANY of Duluth Pack's products! Incidentally, I have a 'drafters" bag that I purchased from DP over 13 years ago and it is still going strong. Yes, the leather has weathered and matured (only making it look better), the zipper broke once, and a top panel had to be replaced as the material wore out, but it was all repaired free of charge. The only thing I paid was for the shipping back west. Yes, I am a former Duluthian from the late 50s but will still not purchase any other pack on the market. These packs are not inexpensive. However, I always rely on the old saying, "You get what you pay for." In this instance (and all instances at DP), you DO get what you pay for - unequalled quality and fine craftsmanship!

Built to lastReview by Mark
I use this pack for all my Scottish mountains, summer and winter. It's been frozen stiff, dropped down gullies, dragged over rocks and it still looks like new. I would never go back to a modern synthetic backpack.
My Klean Kanteen 64oz wide bottle fits into the side pocket which is great. I got the khaki colour and love it to bits. Comfortable, tough and well built. Perfect! (Posted on 5/27/2012)

Great packReview by pete
In 1979 I was introduced to the Duluth packs while at a canoe camp on lake Temagami. Anyone who has spent a large amount of time in the woods understands that your pack is not just for hauling some gear.Over time it becomes a part of you. I have owned Duluth packs since 1980 I have slept on them, jammed firewood in them, carried rocks, water, and even a dog in them. Even after all this the pack comes back for more. With that said, I wanted a smaller pack for day hikes and one nighters. The Wanderer is just about perfect. I have taken it on a few trips and it is breaking in just perfectly. The materials are top notch and it feels great. If you are even a little bit concerned about the price, remember this pack will last you a lifetime and it's made in America! Highly recommended. Thanks Duluth. (Posted on 3/28/2012)

Awesome packReview by DA
Bought mine in waxed canvas over a year ago. Numerous trips to the cabin and out of town trips for work and still just like new. No zippers or snaps to break just old fashioned quality straps and buckles keep everything snug and secure. Great product no complaints. (Posted on 2/23/2012)
Great pack for most uses!Review by D
I’ve owned the Wanderer since 2007, abusing it as my field pack for work and carrying it as my “man-bag” almost daily. I’ve taken this bag with me nearly every day of the past five years, worn it for 16+ hours at a time with 20+ lbs in it, and have used it in all four seasons in northern Minnesota. It’s been stepped on, slammed in doors, dragged through the mud and over rocks and between trees, submerged, frozen, dropped, thrown, and barfed on (I have young kids).
The cotton canvas is a great material. It’s durable, quiet, comfortable to wear in the hot summer, dries quickly when wet, and is easy to wash. The only wear on the pack is slight fraying of the shoulder straps, and a dime-sized hole on the outside of one of the outer water bottle pockets. (Where the water bottles in the pack rub against trees). In rain, the contents of the pack stay dry, to mostly dry. The stitching, leather straps, leather cinch cord, rivets, and buckles have also held up perfectly. The cotton has faded, but that’s to be expected.
It’s a good-sized day pack. The pack will easily hold all my field gear for a day’s work (lunch, water bottles, camera, GPS, maps, flagging, tools, foldable shovel, field notebook, field guides, fleece vest, rain jacket, etc.). Any clothing items that don’t fit in the main compartment can be rolled up, tucked under the main flap, and secured with the long straps. Shoulder straps can be lengthened to accommodate larger winter jackets, or shortened to wear shirtless. The outer bottle pockets add width to the pack and sometimes make it difficult to squeeze between trees (or between people at a grocery store), but it’s usually not an issue.
--This pack has an unpadded back, and bulky/pointy items (field notebooks, equipment, tools, etc.) should be packed deliberately between soft items (or on the outside of the cargo pocket) to maximize the user’s comfort for extended use. Sometimes I find myself packing an extra article of clothing with which to pad equipment…not a big deal, but sometimes annoying at the end of a long day. A flat “map” pocket built in the main cargo pocket (on the strap-side of the pack) could be used for holding padding. (If a back pad was included that could double as a diaper-changing pad , it’d get super bonus points…)
--This pack is not particularly suited to carrying heavy weight for long periods of time. For most users, this may not be an issue, but a waist belt and pack stays (to transfer pack weight from the shoulders to the hips/waist) might be a welcome modification for those that carry heavy loads for long periods of time. A sternum strap might also be nice…
--This pack might benefit from some strategicially-placed leather patches on areas that are likely to receive heavy wear or repeated abrasion. (Bottom of pack, bottom of water bottle pockets)
Overall, the Wanderer is a super daypack for most users/uses, with quality materials and workmanship and a very nice style. Those looking for a pack to carry weightier or bulkier items may want to look to a more modern pack, or petition Duluth Pack for some upgrades. :-) This pack is worth the cost, and I love supporting local business. Thanks, Duluth Pack!
