Today’s blog post is one we have been waiting to do! We officially have an artist who is showing off their Duluth Pack! Who exactly? Hozier – that’s who!

The extremely talented songwriter and artist recently performed at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Saint Paul, MN. Again, Duluth Pack was able to partner up with close buds, XCEL Energy Center and custom embroider the Duluth Pack Urban Pack for him. Before the fun and festive night began, Hozier was hand delivered the handcrafted Duluth Pack.

The Urban Pack that Hozier was gifted is a traditional style pack with an urban twist. The Urban Pack is great for a day trip or back and forth on campus. It features a spacious interior, two snap enclosure front pockets, a water bottle pouch on one side, and a snap enclosure pocket on the other. Basically, the hardiest and most rugged / contemporary pack we have ever designed. Shop the pack HERE .



Here’s to celebrities, campers, hikers, business folk and every one else in between to enjoying Duluth Pack products!

Hey, Duluthians and fans alike, it’s time to fist pump and holler, because Duluth Pack and Trampled By Turtles have partnered up!

Duluth Pack has announced that they will be teaming up and handcrafting bags for local Duluth band, Trampled by Turtles. Duluth Pack will be delivering the bags on September 19th at the Festival of Palomino (Check out their site HERE ) that Trampled by Turtles hosts in Shakopee, MN.

We want to hear, what Duluth Pack product(s) do you want to see or purchase at our booth?

Duluth Pack has handcrafted their best selling product, The Scout Pack and added specialty embroidery for the band. “Making Scout Packs for Trampled by Turtles was something that needed to be done,” said Kyle Radich, Duluth Pack’s General Manager. “We are thrilled that this opportunity has finally arrived!”

We’ve caught the giving bug and we’re teaming up with the awesome folks of The Gear Junkie to do a giveaway of the Duluth Pack #51 Deluxe in our wax canvas hue! Don’t know which style that is? Not a problem, click HERE to check it out.

The beyond cool The Gear Junkie employee, Andrew drove up to Duluth one wonderful spring day this year and took the grand ole’ tour of the Duluth Pack factory/headquarters – all 104 years and counting in this bad boy! I walked around the tour with Andrew as our fantastic leather cutter, Jim explained the whole enchilada on the Duluth Pack company, our products and down to the materials and custom work he has done since being employed here. (Seriously, Jim is THE BEST at tours) . After moseying the cutting, riveting, sewing and quality control area, Andrew revises his knowledge on the last hour and picks through his snapshots that he took that involve lots of canvas, leather and buckles.

This day was just the start of a great idea for our two companies to work together. After focusing on what each companies does, we realized we’re kind of the best fit for one another. A straight forward opinion on goods (The Gear Junkie) and the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack company in the USA (Duluth Pack) . It was time to unite. So, this is where the first ever giveaway together was born!

Check out The Gear Junkie’s review of the Duluth Pack #51 Deluxe and why they think it’s the bag for not only their staff, but for you and you and yes, even you! Read the review HERE . Now, if you want to enter the giveaway, please enter either the Duluth Pack’s Facebook page here or The Gear Junkie’s here .

Happy Giveaway!

Here in Duluth, MN we encounter year round whip-lash of seasonal affects and conditions. These include, sleet, rain, sizzling heat, snow and the crisp cool winds in the fall. However, these seasonal changes don’t stop the pitter patter of running steps. How come? GRANDMA’S MARATHON IS WHY! Today is the big day and one of the most hectic (and fun) days in Canal Park!

This year, we have multiple Duluth Pack employees hustling the full and half marathon course. All from each one of our locations such as our retail store in Canal Park, Distribution Center and Headquarters (all within a mile and a half radius from each other) . Not only are Duluthians signed up for this yearly event, but individuals from all over the globe!

Throughout all the crowds, noise and energy, you can rely on one place remaining and always welcoming you in – the Duluth Pack retail store! We’re located at 365 Canal Park Drive or to make it real easy to locate us, we’re right at the Grandma’s Marathon finish line! Talk about front row watching!

We will be having new products hitting the floor, our bathrooms available for public use and free beverages ready to go!

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” – Josh Billings

A pet brings unconditional, unselfish, consistent and genuine love. They were born to please their masters, bring simple joys to people’s lives and become part of the family. Unfortunately, not all dogs are lucky enough to have a warm bed, a belly scratch, or yard to run free in. This is where Duluth Pack has stepped in and teamed up with the fantastic team from Animal Allies here in Duluth.

On Saturday, May 2nd, Duluth Pack is ringing in “Be Kind to Animals Week” (this awareness week starts from May 2nd – May 9th) and hosting a DULUTH PACK PET ADOPTION DAY at the Duluth Pack retail store in Canal Park, Duluth, MN! There will be dogs of all breeds available for adoption, a donation bin will be present, along with ALL pet products sold during the event from Duluth Pack will have a percentage of proceeds go back to Animal Allies – triple whammy! Please feel free to bring your dogs down to the store, too. Pets of all kinds (as long as they are no harm to our customers and or employees) are welcome to come get a scratch, a free treat, and some sips from the water bowl every day at any time. We’re pet lovers, so bring them in!

So, mark those calendars, folks! This event is completely free to the public (plus, free parking still in Canal Park!) and we welcome for you to spread the word! You can come join the festivities from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and help find a dog a forever home they so badly deserve and want.

For more information regarding the Duluth Pack Pet Adoption Day, please visit the Duluth Pack’s Facebook Page here.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
