This week, our Sportsmans Duffel was featured on Bloomberg’s Loot Blog.
They wrote this great note:
“For a slightly more upscale version of rugged living, there’s the “Sportsman’s Duffel” from Duluth Pack, the Minnesota-based outfitter. At $240, it might seem pricey for a canvas bag. Considering it’s guaranteed for life, you’re allowed to engage in the most reliable justification for buying anything: amortization. So if you have 25 ambulatory years ahead of you, that’s less than $10 a year. Cheap.”
We definitely agree! Our products have value. A lot of value.
Check out the bag on our website.
Thanks for the great post, and thanks for being a friend of Duluth Pack!
The moose population in northeastern Minnesota has dropped almost 35 percent from 2012 to 2013, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, leading to concern for the future of the iconic animal. The drop is so severe, and with the cause remaining uncertain, the DNR has cancelled the moose hunt for this coming fall.
The estimate for 2013 is around 2,760 moose in the northeastern part of the state, down considerably from the 2006 estimate of 8,840. In an attempt to learn more about the cause of moose decline, researchers are hoping to collar a total of 110 animals and track their whereabouts through the coming months, according to the DNR’s website.
Here at Duluth Pack, the moose in our logo has come to represent much of what makes our little neck of the woods in northern Minnesota so special. We consider ourselves to be outdoors advocates. Whether it’s camping, hiking, fishing, or hunting, we love to be outdoors. To continue enjoying the amazing sites, sounds and images that we cherish, we think it’s useful to know what’s happening up in our little slice of heaven.
A fan of Duluth Pack, and songwriter, Luke Brindley, shared with us his blog post. It is about how our packs helped inspire his new song.
“So, last Fall I had this burst of creativity that resulted in most of the songs that started this project.
During the same time I was also looking for a new backpack. I forget how I came across it, but I settled on this durable, canvas style originally made for canoeing by Duluth Pack in Duluth, Minnesota. Somehow this led me to reading about the rivers and lakes of Minnesota. Kind of a roundabout story, but I ended up writing this song.
Enjoy and please take a second to spread the word about this site.
We are so glad to help inspire people! Click here to check out Luke’s full post, and click here to listen to his song.
Has Duluth Pack inspired you in any way – to take a certain trip, to reach a goal, etc? Please share!
