Product Review (submitted on January 21, 2014):
This is my third Duluth Pack of different sizes for different purposes. As always, Duluth Pack makes great quality stuff, and American Made means American jobs ☺
I am 5’6” and the shoulder straps are set in the middle, so someone with a smaller frame has room for adjustments. I am a scout leader with a troop that goes camping every month in all conditions and it fits all the gear I need on any weekend trip and probably a week or longer trip as well. With the waxed canvas I have not had any issues of inside contents getting wet, and when camp is struck, it makes a great pillow too.
The video shows six hand-pounded rivets for attaching the shoulder / web straps, but mine came with only four.
I really like the long side pocket that easily holds a 64 ounce Klean Kanteen, I can also slip my 19” hunters axe handle in (the head sticks out a little over an inch and faces backward) and still have room for some smaller items above or below the water bottle.
I also like the web handle so it is easier to strap / hang on a tree at the right height for getting into and packing.
I only wish the flap straps were a bit longer so I could better add a bedroll under the flap, or if they could add some webbing on the flap to accommodate a bedroll.
