# 51 Utility Pack - Canoe Pack
Product Review (submitted on June 19, 2011):
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.
