Product Review (submitted on June 22, 2010):
I searched and searched and finally found the Web site for Dultuth Pack on line. I need a strong but light backpack for an extended trip to Asia. The people at Dultuth were amazing to deal with and patient beyond belief. I explained to them what I required. The first backpack they sent me was to large because I am rather small. When I telephoned them, they said, 'no problem' and sent me without charging me for shipping the Classic Rucksack". It more than did its jobs. I traveled for more than two months in Asia and stuffed my rucksack, and it looks as if it were brand new. Very few products are that good. Moreover, it was admired where ever I went. More importantly, it is light and holds a great deal of stuff. I carried a medium format Mamya Camera forty rolls of 120 film, filters, a change of clothing, (folded up as small as possible), a net-book, and other assorted items in the pocket on the front.
Since I was doing a great amount of traveling by plane from country to country, it was essential to keep my luggage portable. While my suitcase bought for the trip developed a tear, nothing happened to the Classic Rucksack.
I hope that this superb Company continues to thrive and grow. But I would be very sorry if it grew and shipped its factory to China. The quality of the products that Duluth Pack manufactures is of the highest quality.
The Company is unique and should consider advertising in The New Yorker magazine.
