Full Description

Features such as 15-ounce canvas construction, riveted leather flap straps, cotton webbing shoulder straps, and high quality buckles make this series of packs worth a second look. No reason to worry either, all three packs are handmade in Duluth, MN and come standard with our “Guaranteed for Life” warranty. The smallest of the three Utility series canoe packs, the #51, makes a great day pack for those items you like to keep close at hand either in the canoe or on a short day hike. It's also the perfect upgrade from our Scout Pack if you require more room in your pack. Both the #60 and #3-70 are much larger in volume and will provide more packing space for that quick weekend trip or a longer wilderness excursion. The only significant difference between these three rock solid packs is that the #51 has two leather flap straps, whereas the #60 and #3-70 have three leather flap straps. The #3-70 also includes a thick replaceable poly liner and tumpline. Made in USA.

18 months later - still my favorite pack

Cheers to the Duluth folks! I spent some talking with them - I'm 6'4" tall and barrel chested - and we added some extra length on my web straps and I also knew I wanted a grab handle so we added that too.

This pack has been to ball games, bike rides, ATV and Dirt Bike rides, and even on my Harley. It's been on countless canoe trips and is the first pack hanging by the door that I grab for anything.

I keep a seat cushion wrapped in the pack liner bag in the pack - it serves as a barrier to the back on sharp objects and gives the bag some shape too when it's not loaded full - as it's often not.

I use a variety of smaller bags in a bag concept - fire kit, personal survival kit, urban get around kit, etc...and throw in whatever smaller bags compliment that days activity.

I've tried other bags and I keep coming back to the simplicity of this bag. It's been dumped in rivers and streams - it's been covered in mud and probably a little blood - it never fails to clean up simply and after a day of hanging to dry looks almost like new.

I treated my straps and the round Duluth logo patch immediately and keep them treated - they get much darker but I like that and they are soft as butter all the time and probably will never crack if I keep them treated.

Great pack - we have some old Duluth packs from the 30's and 40's in our family...I imagine this one will be passed on well after I am gone too.

Very nice bag, well-built and the perfect size. I only regret not getting d-rings sewn on to hold a bed roll.

Stands up over time

I bought the 51 about twenty years ago and added heavier canvas, a double bottom and heavier all leather straps and a buckle attachment for a tumpline. I am a professional forest worker and carry the pack every day I am outside...which is nearly every day spring-summer-fall. The back flap is totally sun-bleached and the leather is now supple with long use. I depend on the best pack and the best boots I can get....regardless of price. If I really thought that there was something "better" out there, I would have it. Younger people laugh at it, as it lacks the "technical" look of "todays" gear. I am quiet and let them think what they want. Live and learn.

I decided to get the #60 instead of the #51 and when I got the bag in the mail it was quite large, but perfect to carry all of my hunting stuff. I can put in all the things that I need for a days worth of hunting comfortably and still have room for extra layers and a Thermos. This bag is amazing, I plan on getting the #51 for day hikes. The quality is unmatched.

it goes everywhere

the #51 is an all purpose, go everywhere pack. Roomy enough for everything you need for a day out and about. The flap and strap closure gives the need space for that last extra thing. We like this pack so much that we have given it away to visiting Guests during exchange weekends.

Great Economical Pack
  • Rating

I purchased this pack for my son as his first Duluth Pack. It is a great size for the Jr. High School age. Fits everything for a long weekend camping to sleepovers with friends. Expands with the top flap and leather strapping system and allows him to stuff everything he needs and would want to carry. Great original design and economical.
