    The Duluth Pack all the way,It’s a classic!

  • Kerry B Scott March 17, 2011 at 10:13 am

    I’m a Monarch fan!

  • Dave March 17, 2011 at 10:14 am

    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.

  • Craig Bentley March 17, 2011 at 10:15 am

    I have been very pleased with the quality of the products I’ve purchased from Duluth Pack!

  • Steve N March 17, 2011 at 10:15 am

    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!

    #4 Monarch!!!Love the padded shoulder straps and the extra pockets!

  • Mike March 17, 2011 at 10:44 am

    #4 DP; it swallows up gear like a hungry bear does an unattended gorp bag!

  • heffrons March 17, 2011 at 10:44 am

    #4 Duluth Pack. -can fit the kitchen sink in too.

  • Tom Harbold March 17, 2011 at 10:51 am

    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!

  • Mike March 17, 2011 at 10:52 am

    #4 definitely. It’s a classic.

  • Karaann March 17, 2011 at 10:52 am

    You just gotta love all DuluthPacks (I do!)! But the Monarch says it all….adaptability!!

  • William Biddulph March 17, 2011 at 10:54 am

    # 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.

  • BA Lund March 17, 2011 at 10:55 am

    Gotta love the side pockets for quick access.

  • Michelle March 17, 2011 at 10:58 am

  • hillary March 17, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    The Monarch, for certain–though I would have either in a heartbeat.

  • Victor Kessler March 17, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    I love me some Duluth #4

  • m v March 17, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    a hard choice (4 me), but since i don’t like 2 carry much, probably the #4 duluth pack

  • An-Min March 17, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    I vote #4 Monarch. :)

  • Susan Berndt March 17, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    #4 Monarch. I just like the rounded style and side pockets.

    • Doug Z March 17, 2011 at 5:51 pm

      I own a #4 Duluth Pack and could not go without it.

  • Kevin Wihriala March 17, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    #4 Monarch

  • Lynn March 17, 2011 at 5:00 pm

    Duluth Pack!!!!! I wanna win win win, cuz I love love love it.

  • Meagan Keefe March 17, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    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.
