#3 Monarch - Canoe Pack

#3 Monarch - Canoe Pack

Product Review (submitted on November 28, 2008):
I am a third generation Duluth Pack owner, and the Monarch #4 is the newest addition to our arsenal. It is a great pack that can hold just about anything you might need for a long canoe trip.
The padded leather straps on the Monarch makes it a comfortable carry the very first time out. Standard straps have a break in period of a few trips...not so with the Monarch.
The one criticism I have of the Monarch #4 is its dimensions. When it is FULLY LOADED, the dimensions are such that it needs to be rotated as it is loaded into a Grumman 17ft standard. This makes it a little awkward to quickly load/unload, but the comfort and capacity make up for it.

P.S.- My younger brother (15 at the time) carried the Monarch #4 loaded with ~80lbs of food and cooking gear across a >300 rod portage. No complaining the whole way!
