Product Review (submitted on July 20, 2010):
I currently own three Duluth Pack packs and the Rambler is my favorite. It is the perfect size for day paddle trips when I want/need to bring some extra gear or as my "small" pack on overnight paddling trips. I also have used it on many scout outings with my son (he packs his clothes and sleeping bag in it). It is extremely well made and I have had no complaints with the workmanship/craftsmanship for the past eight years. I prefer the front zippered pocket to the buckle type, simply because it makes it easier to get to the small items. The shoulder straps are very comfortable, but I tend to agree with some of the other reviewers that leather straps would be nice to have. My only complaint is that I purchased my Rambler before waxed canvas was available. Overall, a great pack.
