Product Review (submitted on March 26, 2014):
I’ve already used the waxed canvas ScoutMaster Pack in a snowstorm. Walked about ¼ mile to my client’s office and when I arrived, the snow had accumulated at the top of my pack. The laptop and all contents were dry as a bone, unaffected by the elements. Snow rolled off the pack like water off a duck’s back. This will be a great carry-on bag when traveling by air. No worries with security or getting lost since it will be cabled to my large leather duffel. Work gear will be in this backpack when I’m on the road during the week. WOW I’m still amazed at how much gear I can pack into this backpack. I like that the interior is rough and unlined; no extraneous materials to care for with the gear I’ll be hauling in it. Money well spent and a one-time buy; it’s durable and a great value. This was my first waxed canvas item I’ve owned and now I’m hooked on waxed canvas. Thanks Duluth Pack for offering a well-made product!
