Awesome pack
  • Rating

Bought mine in waxed canvas over a year ago. Numerous trips to the cabin and out of town trips for work and still just like new. No zippers or snaps to break just old fashioned quality straps and buckles keep everything snug and secure. Great product no complaints.

Great pack for most uses!

I’ve owned the Wanderer since 2007, abusing it as my field pack for work and carrying it as my “man-bag” almost daily. I’ve taken this bag with me nearly every day of the past five years, worn it for 16+ hours at a time with 20+ lbs in it, and have used it in all four seasons in northern Minnesota. It’s been stepped on, slammed in doors, dragged through the mud and over rocks and between trees, submerged, frozen, dropped, thrown, and barfed on (I have young kids).
The cotton canvas is a great material. It’s durable, quiet, comfortable to wear in the hot summer, dries quickly when wet, and is easy to wash. The only wear on the pack is slight fraying of the shoulder straps, and a dime-sized hole on the outside of one of the outer water bottle pockets. (Where the water bottles in the pack rub against trees). In rain, the contents of the pack stay dry, to mostly dry. The stitching, leather straps, leather cinch cord, rivets, and buckles have also held up perfectly. The cotton has faded, but that’s to be expected.
It’s a good-sized day pack. The pack will easily hold all my field gear for a day’s work (lunch, water bottles, camera, GPS, maps, flagging, tools, foldable shovel, field notebook, field guides, fleece vest, rain jacket, etc.). Any clothing items that don’t fit in the main compartment can be rolled up, tucked under the main flap, and secured with the long straps. Shoulder straps can be lengthened to accommodate larger winter jackets, or shortened to wear shirtless. The outer bottle pockets add width to the pack and sometimes make it difficult to squeeze between trees (or between people at a grocery store), but it’s usually not an issue.
SUGGESTIONS:
--This pack has an unpadded back, and bulky/pointy items (field notebooks, equipment, tools, etc.) should be packed deliberately between soft items (or on the outside of the cargo pocket) to maximize the user’s comfort for extended use. Sometimes I find myself packing an extra article of clothing with which to pad equipment…not a big deal, but sometimes annoying at the end of a long day. A flat “map” pocket built in the main cargo pocket (on the strap-side of the pack) could be used for holding padding. (If a back pad was included that could double as a diaper-changing pad , it’d get super bonus points…)
--This pack is not particularly suited to carrying heavy weight for long periods of time. For most users, this may not be an issue, but a waist belt and pack stays (to transfer pack weight from the shoulders to the hips/waist) might be a welcome modification for those that carry heavy loads for long periods of time. A sternum strap might also be nice…
--This pack might benefit from some strategicially-placed leather patches on areas that are likely to receive heavy wear or repeated abrasion. (Bottom of pack, bottom of water bottle pockets)
Overall, the Wanderer is a super daypack for most users/uses, with quality materials and workmanship and a very nice style. Those looking for a pack to carry weightier or bulkier items may want to look to a more modern pack, or petition Duluth Pack for some upgrades. :-) This pack is worth the cost, and I love supporting local business. Thanks, Duluth Pack!

Bound for Budapest

This backpack is amazing! Strong and sturdy, check. Amazing construction and attention to detail, check! Great in inclement weather, check! Comfortable straps and very roomy, check! I took this pack to The Lakes District in England on a camping trip for three weeks in 2006. I was able to fit all of my sundries and clothes, and extra pair of shoes, along with some music and books and two water bottles in this pack. Mind you I roll thing military style, however it holds a lot! I am ordering my second since I gifted my first to my husband! Can't wait to receive it and head off to Hungary!

Travels through Brazil

This is an exceptional pack. There is a lot of attention to detail as far as the construction of this pack goes. I took this pack for a month long excursion to Brazil and it held up great. It rode with me on the buses, and metro stations, it tagged along through hours and hours of navigating downtown Rio de Janeiro, it survived being kicked along an several airport floors... It handled the trip just fine. This pack will accompany me throughout all of my travels, and I'm sure it will hold up just fine. Good job Duluth Pack!

Fantastic Pack
  • Rating

my pack came in this week. I was informed when i ordered that it could take up to 7 weeks for the bag, but it came in just less than three weeks. Every aspect of this bag shows craftsmanship and superb materials. well worth the price, and completely made in USA. i cant wait to take it to the camp or on my next bushcrafting weekend.

thank you for your excellent products and great customer service.

Great Pack!!!
  • Rating

I finally got my Wanderer today. It took nearly 7 weeks to get it (which is my only complaint), but it was worth the wait. Very well designed and made and I'm so glad I got the waxed canvas. It exceeded my expectations. Shoulder straps are comfortable and the pack rides up along my shoulder blades instead of low and saggy like lots of other packs I've owned. I'm using mine as a bushcraft/hunting pack. All my basic survival equipment fits and plenty of extra stuff for those long days in the field chasing elk and deer around. I got tired of the the modern tactical look of all my gear, but wanted something that was still built as well as my mil-spec stuff. This pack definitely fit the bill. Thanks for building such a great product and thanks for supporting the American worker by making it in the good ol' U.S.A.!!!

An old friend

It's fun to walk into a camping area and have the other hiker's ask, where did you get that pack. Over the year's, I've directed several your way. Thank you for a great product. Mine has had years of use. Every time I put it on, it's like getting a hug from an old friend.

Excellent first impressions

I received this pack as an early Christmas gift, and i am absolutely thrilled with. I packed it with all the things i packed for my trip up to Indiana without any issues. Now i plan to take it back to Kentucky and take it on a hike or on a paddle outing asap.

Thank You Duluth Pack for making a quality product that is actually made in the USA.

Amazing bag
  • Rating

I have used this bag everyday for about 6 years. I've used it as a school bag, filled it with clothes for weekend trips, and its been my daypack on trips around the world. The black colour has almost completely faded to grey from the sun, a few holes have formed at the corner of the outside pockets, and the drawstring has been worn through (I just tied it together) but despite these cosmetic flaws I wouldn't trade this baby in for a new one. I love its waterproof quality, and the looks are classic. Buy this bag.
