    I go with the Monarch, as it has side pockets. From the photo it has a more balanced visual composition than the #4 Duluth Pack. Looks like it might be more comfortable on the back than the #4 for daily use ’round town and trail. Round 1: Monarch. I put this as one of my top 3 seeds in this intense tournament of luggage.

    In the first round, I would say that the #4 Monarch leads the pack–no contest–especially if you are going to be portaging five or more areas into the boonies!

    I’ll go with the #4 Monarch. I like it’s structure more than the “envelope” design of the #4 DP, and I like the accessory (water bottle!) pockets. But of course, all Duluth packs are great packs!

    # 4 Monarch, Wanderer, Front Portage Pack, Thwart Bag, Bow Bag, Seat Bag, Saw Bag,and a 16′ Mad River Explorer The perfect combination, oh yeah and ME.

    Oldie but goldie! I much prefer the old #4 to the monarch. I know there are lots of pockets, but that’s what cargo pants are for and the padded leather straps DO NOT fit me at all and are uncomfortable.
