Wanderer

Made in America
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.

Made in USA.

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

Very Happy Son!
Rating
My son's custom Wanderer arrived yesterday and he is over the moon! The waxed cotton and combination of the Wanderer and Sparky Bag appointments made for a highly functional and beautiful pack. It even smells wonderful (Mmmm...leather.) He already started rattling off the list of adventures and activities he'll be taking with his pack in tow (The embroidered remembrance of his 2015 mission trip to Camden, NJ was a very special and appreciated touch) Neither my son nor I could be happier with the purchase. Thanks, Duluth Pack! We're looking forward to many years of faithful service. Review by Old Yeller (Posted on 7/19/2016)
Perfect Travel Pack
Rating
I've used this bag for camping as well as traveling, and it is great. It is handsome and comfortable to wear. I have had it for 3 years, used it extensively, and it only looks better with wear. Fits WAY more than you'd think and it also fits into the overhead bins on airplanes. Very versatile backpack and a perfect size. Review by Katie (Posted on 5/15/2016)
Good but the size is just a bit small...
Rating
Overall, the construction is good. Ordered two, had to send one back because it was missing a rivet. They repaired and returned. The materials are solid in the waxed canvas. My only issue is that it's somewhere between a day pack and an overnight pack...but it's a real small overnight pack. With two bottle packs, you would think it would have plenty of room...but it's tight if you try and fit a bad, roll and some clothes in it. There are no D-rings to hang the bag or roll off of...which would have been a real nice feature but now I'd have to add it after the fact. Review by Al (Posted on 11/5/2015)

I've had my Wanderer pack for about 10yrs,its the first thing I throw in the car or canoe when traveling. More than once I've had someone offer to buy it from me, usually canoe outfitters so I guess I'll never starve. I expect this to be handed down in years to come like a fine rifle.

Amazing

I've had this pack for 2 years now, and it's been on my back an awful lot. It is extremely durable, and performs admirably in all tasks. It also brings in a bunch of compliments. For a little extra personal comfort, I sent it back and had them add the padded leather straps, the sternum strap, and the grab handle. The customer service was outstanding. I can't recommend this pack enough! Review by Frazier (Posted on 3/7/2015)

This pack, oh, where do i begin... This pack is great, definitely worth the money. I took it across seas for the summer during a 3 week class and an additional 3 1/2 weeks afterwards for some country-hopping. It not only got me through a very interesting trip over (main flight got delayed and took 3 connected flights to get there) as my main suitcase but also as a trusted backpack for school back in the states.

This pack can do many things, from hauling 31/2 weeks worth of clothes and toiletries to 50 lbs of textbooks and school binders. It is very durable in any kind of weather, rain, snow, or sun (had it in -40 degrees last winter and over 90 this past summer) but also almost anything you can pack in. I would recommend to anyone, there is nothing I can say that would be bad about it. It can survive international travel, it can survive college.

I have had this pack for over 5 years....it has been back and forth across the country, east to west and north to south. This is my luggage getting there and my back pack while I'm there. Holds everything I need, has never given me a problem, and is durable....durable....durable. Review by MEK (Posted on 1/2/2015)

like love it would buy another . I got my 1st pack about 7/4/2012. after a recommendation by friends and reconfirmed of its worth seeing the likes of the such used from the Path finder school. I have more or less used it every day to date being I do not drive and walk every where I go. I put a trash can in mine to help fill out the pack. to make it easier to haul things or to protect the Canvas as like when hauling fire wood and up to 4 gal milk jugs with water or to stable the load when I use it to pack home my grocery's and even use it to go on camping hiking trips. {Nothing} yet to date of the hardware has failed to date. One of things I have liked and reason I bought this type was because where other types when the fabric failed and needed to be fixed it was not as easily done as this type .I have my self patched holes using leather and bank line . I am just now starting to see the Canvas on the bottom at the seams start to brake down and start to tear and that is my fault for not waxing it more. one thing I like about this type of pack v/s other types is for the very reason it can be fixed as like I have done when I need if out on long and or short fishing , camping and on hiking trips.

Review by Robert J. Hughes for Rating: I have a couple of these in dfeefrint sizes. They fit on the same frame so you only need one, if you want one at all. I like a frame because it keeps the bag off of my back and I am much cooler when I hike which is big here in Florida. The quality of the bag is excellent with plenty of easy to get at compartments. I would highly recommend it. Review by Anthony (Posted on 7/16/2014)
perfect bag

Okay, I bought this for my husband years and years ago. He has taken this bag on many assignments and we have the photos to prove it. There's one photo of him standing in Thailand with tanks behind him during the coup. It has gone to ,probably Mongolia, Bangladesh ( he got all the easy assignments. ha ha. ) Hawaii( okay, that one actually was easy) and all over the U.S. He was once asked in an airport,"Is that a Duluth Pack?" Maybe that means we're in some unofficial club. My husband pretty much can destroy anything just by accident. This pack of his continues to look really good and is holding up great. Thanks . Oh yeh, the reason I'm on this web site is because I want to get a travel pack for myself. I had one , but a family member adopted it( not much chance they'll just give it back )Have a blessed day Review by rebe (Posted on 7/13/2014)

I am a full time grad student, part time explorer and this bag is just what I needed. The fabric is thick and durable. I have checked it numerous times over the last two years and not one stitch, not one strap, not one rivet was out of place. Awesome product I highly recommend it.

Awesome pack

This thing has been dragged all over. I use it for over night camping trips.it's been thrown in the dirt and dragged up the side of trees. Using mine as a hunting pack I over load it and have no problems. My only problem is i can't afford to buy one for everyone I know, so they can experience the quality of an Amercian made pack.

Perfect for everything but hiking
Rating
I have used this pack for travel for light camping (aka car camping), to small hikes in the woods and have not found a single thing wrong with it. That is until I went on a weekend trip to the BWCA. I packed this bag for me to survive 2 nights in the woods and man what a pain in the but it was. Once I got this thing loaded up the bag wanted to do nothing more than sag back. There are no chest straps to keep the back pack standing upright and made for a very unease portage. I was literally shocked when I packed everything together and saw the performance of this backpack. That being said, it still is a great backpack but I will never take it to the BWCA unless I know for fact there will be ZERO portages. Review by tkohlhorst (Posted on 10/7/2013)
the padded straps make a huge difference !

i am STILL in love with my wanderer pack after a lot of treks, hikes and outings and having ordered the padded pack straps... Im enjoying this pack even more! I was delighted to find that Duluth will even make them to match the color of the pack ! Mine is RED and I've given it the name of " the RED BEAUTY " !!!! in over 60 years of hiking I have owned alot of packs but this one is beyond a doubt ... the best !

I'm in high school and this bag can hold two textbooks binders and journals with room too spare side pockets great for water bottles and it will last longer then my Review by BoyScout (Posted on 8/28/2013)
make a great pack even better with the padded straps
Rating
I have "updated" my review of this awesome pack already and will do so again. I would highly suggest and strongly recommend that if you decide to purchase this pack and if you will be hiking long distances, carrying weight... GET THE PADDED STRAPS ! the cloth straps that are on the this pack are wide but the pads will make a huge difference in comfort , most especially for the " older " hiker ( like me ) Review by ALASKA BILL (Posted on 8/26/2013)
