History of this Product
The Northwoods, a canoe pack design of Canadian origin, is very similar to the model favored by the late Bill Mason, dean of wilderness paddlers throughout the world. Mason was an award- winning and deeply revered Canadian filmmaker, naturalist, author, and artist whose work passionately exemplified his love for the wilderness and canoeing. Two of his films Paddle to the Sea, nominated for Best Short Film at the 1968 Academy Awards, and Waterwalker, a film documenting Mason’s personal journey on Lake Superior, are definite favorites among Duluth Pack staff.
