* Required Fields



Built out of rugged 18-ounce canvas and reinforced with a thick layer of leather on the bottom, the Sparky Bag is built for the road less traveled. Features like padded leather shoulder straps, dual zippered side pockets, and a reinforced leather grab handle all make this bag ultra practical for long days around town or in the woods. To help speed up loading and unloading, just unzip the whole front panel of the pack open and lay it flat. In addition, two leather lash tabs on top of the pack and a web of bungees on the front make carrying along an extra item or two no problem at all. Side pockets are large enough to carry a thermos or 32-ounce water bottle. Made in USA.

So close!Review by Globetrotter
Strong leather-backed straps and rivets make this a very sturdy day pack. Full-open zip front and side pockets are well sized and placed for quick access. Great for what it is - but extending the bottom down 3 inches, adding aluminum stays (to distribute shoulder-to-belt load) and a good cinch belt (to keep it moving with your body stride) would transform this sparky bag into a sparky weekender. So well made it can take the weight, but jumping creeks or bouldering up slopes begs it to swing like a pendulum. Great product for flat trail, and great if that meets you needs. This day pack is primmed to become a weekender backpack for hunters and trail blazers. If you'd like the same product, no time like the present to let Duluth Pack know these simple changes would do it.

A Daypack Built Like a TankReview by Cajun Outdoorsman

They make great packs Review by Jim F
My son got me a Sparky bag for my 50th birthday 2 years ago. I had never heard of Duluth Pack until then. I travel to National Parks around the country with my wife and our two dogs, and do a lot of hiking and sightseeing. I have brought this pack with me on every trip since. Not only have I put some serious use on this bag, but I have bought one for my wife too. It took the straps a couple trips to break in, but once they were it became very comfortable. I have had my eye on a few more Duluth Pack bags, and one of their Filson hats... Maybe my wife will see this message before her Christmas shopping is done... All things considered, the only thing I would have done differently, is gotten a different color... Other than that, this pack is great.

Perfect day packReview by Mike in Jersey
I use this product for weekend camping trips with my son's boyscout troop, family camping, canoe trips and weekend get aways. I am always amazed at just how much I can put in to this pack. I have several Duluth Packs and this one gets the most use. I would like to see a couple of small pockets on the outside of this pack for small items. The side pockets are great for larger items, but small items tend to get lost. All in all, this is a great pack.I do believe this will last a life time.

THE GREATEST!!Review by Ron
This backpack does it all. The full zipper feature makes for easy packing. The side pockets are great for a water bottle and an umbrella or whatever! I take it with me all over. (Posted on 3/19/2008)
