Dear Duluth Pack,

Several years ago, I ordered one of your Rucksacks for a trip to Yellowstone with my ailing father. I have since carried this pack the world over for a more than a decade. It is marked by all the places traveled and events endured.
It was on my back when a Grizzly charged in Alaska, been immersed in saltwater when fishing far offshore in Florida, and has carried countless textbooks to and from graduate school. I remember hastily packing it for the flight home when the call came.
It held my eulogy notes on the day of my dad’s funeral. It has seen plenty of good times since. In essence, this simple object carries much more than supplies or gear. It now carries memories. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for crafting this pack and convey how much I appreciate the character and quality it exudes.

Kind regards,

Joe in Scotland
