I splurged and bought this bag to go with my first full time job. Fifteen years, two Labrador puppies and being loaded to the gills everyday have failed to wreck this bag. I'm sure I will have this bag when I retire.

Going strong after over 10 years.

I have had this bag for something like 12 years. The bag has one little hole in the canvas which I punctured while carrying something pointy. Amazingly the hole has been there for probably 5 years but does not get any bigger due to the incredibly tough canvas. In an age where things seem to break in months, this bag had been so solid. I use it every day in the summer heat and the winner cold. I've over-stuffed it and cranked down on the buckles more times than I care to remember. It really is amazingly durable. While it looks weathered, it still looks great after all this time despite getting zero care.

Deluxe Book Bag, my favorite school/work bag!
  • Rating

I thought I'd field test this bag before I write a review, and here I am two months after I got the Deluxe Book Bag. I did an internet search for USA made bags and found Duluth. I've never been to Minn., never heard of this brand, and was hesitant to dropping 130USD on a bag. Well, I have no regrets. I'm a hard to please shopper who wants things that are functional yet aesthetically pleasing, and this bag satisfies both those categories. I'm a bit over 5' and the size of the bag is perfect: fits 13" laptop, a couple of books, water bottle, etc. while still remaining comfortable enough to carry because of wide straps and it doesn't slip off my shoulder like so many other bags do. It's really well-made and looks it too.The brass hardware is sturdy and tastefully accents the bag. I go to school and work part-time and this bag transitions nicely between these two settings. I've also received compliments on from friends and strangers.

The only drawback applies to petite shoppers: the nice leather shoulder pad cannot be adjusted to fit over your shoulder if you get the shorten the strap to have the bag hang hip level. If I want to use the leather shoulder pad, I would have to lengthen the strap until the bag dangles at thigh level, and then it just swings around too much.

Deluxe Book Bag B-137

I've had this bag for a month now, and I just love it. I'm a function over form person, especially for bags, but this bag has ample amounts of both.

It's made in the US!
It is really beautiful. Is and looks high-quality. I was afraid that it would be too masculine but it's not. The leather/canvas combo is handsome and well proportioned. The brass hardware is sturdy and attractive.
I love using canvas bags but I always holes on the bottom corners so I'm got this one specifically because it is reinforced with leather.
Spacious, holds a lot but doesn't feel bulky or too big even though I'm petite.
I'm tired of bags sliding off my shoulders. This one stays on!

Nothing wrong with the bag itself, but there are a few things that would have made it more functional for me: 1) a different strap adjuster and 2) side pockets. I'm unable to use the nice leather strap pad because because the bag's too long for me when the pad is centered on the strap, and there's no way for me to use the pad when the straps are on a "short person" setting. I usually take public transport at home and when I travel; a side pocket would be nice to hold a transit card, which you have take out multiple times in one journey.

For an ready-made bag, this is still great. Highly recommend!

Love this bag!

I didn't just purchase this bag, but reading these reviews has reminded me of how much I love the bag! Mine is about six years old and still looks great. I too, am petite (several reviewers mention this) . . .I am perfectly happy with the large size of this bag. In fact, I expected/wanted the bag to be large. I love the "spruce" color; in fact most of the Duluth Pack items I own are spruce. The color goes well with the various jewel tones I like to wear.

Perfect School/Teacher Bag
  • Rating

Last January I traveled to Duluth, MN and stopped into the Duluth Pack store. I wanted to pick out my burgundy deluxe book bag in person, and the store staff was wonderful in helping me make my decision. I needed a bag that I can use my last two years of college, and continue to use as I become a teacher. After several months of hard core use I find this bag exceptional. On a daily basis, I pack my bag with several text books, notebooks, thick folders, a large laptop, and water bottle into this bag--and it remained comfortable to tote around. The strap is still in perfect condition, and the bag has become more flexible due to its every day use. I did noticed that the edges of some of my books had burgundy tenting due to rub off of the bags new fabric. However, after about a month of use the bag no longer discolors any edges of the paper items. I am very happy with my purchase and am excited to continue to use the bag daily several years from now.

Great bag

I was a little leery to buy a book bag for $130 over the internet. However, I have heard good things about Duluth Pack, so I took a chance. Am I ever glad I did. My bag came yesterday and I could not beleive how well made it is. The leather on the bag is of the finest quality. I bought the spruce which is a beautiiful green. Everything about the bag is top quality. I can not recommend this highly enough. I will certainly look to DP for any future bag needs. GOOD JOB Duluth Pack!

Great Bag
  • Rating

Great looks, great construction, great quality, what more can I say. I bring this bag everywhere, and it looks the part in the office, the airport, or on campus. Big enough for a laptop in a sleeve, power cords, and a two 1" thick books. Roomy, but not huge. Great bag, made in USA, very classy.

My mom bought this bag back in the early 90s when she was going to college, she used it daily until I started middle school when I stole it from her. Since then its made it through middle school, high school, and half of my college career and it is still kicking (with no issues). Its been a great camping companion, a great school companion, and has even made it to and from several countries. And I agree, the older it gets, the more attractive it becomes. I would recommend this bag to anyone and everyone.

I've had this bag for over four years now. Got me through 4 years of college and two cross continental vacations. All due respect to the previous rating, but being a petite woman myself, I have absolutely no issue with the size of this bag. I manage to get a good amount of stuff in this baby, and am still ambulatory. And, although I'm sure it need not be said, this bag is beautiful, durable beyond measure, and looks better and better with wear. The color fades over a couple years, and the leather holds up incredibly well; its beauty truly comes with age.
