It’s the “kind of a holiday” of deals and steals galore! We’re a very festive group, so Duluth Pack is launching out sales that you certainly don’t want to miss out on for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and even Cyber Monday! We’re so excited that we an hardly stay still! All deals are available on our internationally stoppable website HERE but for reference is (www.duluthpack.com) and at our flagship retail store in Canal Park located in the heart of Duluth, MN. P.s. FREE PARKING IN THE BACK!

As you may know, Duluth Pack products hardly (if ever) get marked down. So, this is your time to fetch out that pretty penny of yours and save some big moola on that pack you’ve been lusting over.

Will there be more than just bags? Oh yeah, you betcha! There will be other goodies available including apparel, books, edibles, and even some merino wool items! Trust us, these are our best discounts in history!

Want more than just one product at a steal deal? Don’t sweat it! We have put together specially picked bundles of top selling products that compliment one another and save you bundle – get it?! Keep all pieces together for one big and great gift to someone special, or kill two birds with one stone and separate the pieces to gift more than one person. So, it’s basically a win win situation we’re talking about.

We take the stress out of holiday shopping and focus on the holly jolly part of it.

Happy shopping, friends!

FALL FISHING

The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are changing colors, the loon calls are diminishing, but the fish are biting. Fall fishing season is one that we do not take advantage of one bit. We relish in the time of crisp air, hot apple cider beverages, cozy wool blankets, and a fishing rod in our hands. Life by the lake is near perfection.

This year, we have become incredibly close with photographer, Kiley Marissa. She brings a spunk and artistic viewpoint to showcase not only our canvas and leather products, but promote the emotional connection behind the packs. She gets that our goods creates stories and last a lifetime. As we say, “Making memories since 1882″. P.s. check out Kiley’s website HERE

What is your favorite memory on the lake? Is it with your parents when you were a little tyke? Just last week with your beloved? On the water with your granddaddy and you beat him with the bigger fish? Maybe it was the time you didn’t catch a single thing, but laughed the entire time in the cold. Whichever moment you have, we want to be there with you. Check out our Duluth Pack fishing themed products in our retail store or on our website.

THE ONE, THE ONLY, THE ORIGINAL

November 16, 2015

Triple threat action here. The one, the only, the original.

We hear it constantly and know it. Many companies try to replicate our products. I mean, it’s not that difficult. We’re canvas and leather products. However, the one thing they cannot copy as hard as they may try is our passion, our story, and our heritage.

The Duluth Pack brand itself, revolves around four easy, simple, and to the point causes. Let’s break it down and why each is so important to the existence and reputation of the Duluth Pack company and brand as whole.

1) Duluth Pack stands for QUALITY . As John Ruskin once stated, “Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.” (This quote was found on Brainyquote.com) We absolutely agree with this statement by Mr. Ruskin. For a 133 continuous years, Duluth Pack has seemed out the most quality designs, techniques, theories, products, and time tested ways to ensure the quality and longevity of a Duluth Pack product remains the same from day one.

2) The second point Duluth Pack involves itself in is PREMIUM PRODUCTS . As the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack making company in the USA, we seek out the highest and most pristine products, materials, and workers to ensure the best product for you, our customers! We want to make sure our durability, lifetime guarantee, and the trust in our goods stays constantly the same. Whether it’s an heirloom passed down each generation, a splurge after good grades, or a daily necessity you carry to work. We want our customers to know we not only research, but seek the most premium items to help manufacture our packs, totes, hunting gear and purses. These include, the type of canvas, the leather used, rivets, the wools, and even the needles we use in or sewing machines. On a last note, Duluth Pack sources as much American Made goods to help create our goods as possible, too!

3) The third on the list is where we are geographically proud to be located. This point is all about MADE IN AMERICA . Duluth Pack has ALWAYS AND ONLY made our products here in Duluth, Minnesota, USA for the continuous 133 years in business! We are proud of where we come from and proud of where we are. We have been in the same factory for almost 104 years (I mean, that’s seriously cool!) . Duluth Pack is the all American brand that has stayed simple, not flashy, to the point, and trustworthy. We’re a humble brand, that isn’t trendy, but we are consistent. You can even say we are predictable and we aren’t ashamed. We’re proud you can count on an American Made product, basically right in your backyard, and we stick with designs that will take you from canoe to car and from train to plane. We’ve got your back.

4) The last but not least point, is that Duluth Pack has always featured and included a LIFETIME GUARANTEE . The Duluth Pack lifetime guarantee covers our craftsmanship and our hardware. What does that entail? Let’s break it down. Craftsmanship – This includes our sewing seams. If a sewing seam breaks loose and unravels, no worries. That’s covered under our lifetime guarantee. Hardware – This involved our zippers, rivets, and buckles. If any of these break or just don’t work anymore, again this falls under the lifetime guarantee. I mean, where can you find a lifetime guarantee on ANYTHING anymore? It’s so difficult to find these days and to know you can count on that with Duluth Pack since the beginning, we think it’s seriously special.

So, when you think of Duluth Pack, remember these four solid, easy, and to the point topics. Quality, Premium Products, Made in America, and Lifetime Guarantee. To know Duluth Pack has remained the same and not conformed to what society or trends entail is what keeps us doing what we know best, making the top rated packs, totes, purses, hunting gear, and canoe bags you can find.

PERSONALIZE YOUR PACK

November 5, 2015
customs

We live in a world where everything is everywhere. Mass production is at it’s highest. Products are flying off the shelves and most companies are focused on quantity rather than quality. However, Duluth Pack is the black sheep in the world of production. We don’t mass produce, but rather fixate on creating the best product for you, even if it takes extra TLC and time to do so. While each pack is signed by the craftsperson who handcrafted the bag, tote, purse, pack, and other Duluth Pack accessories just for you, the current generations are still looking for something.. more . By more what do we mean? Personalization is the word. Us as living breathing beautiful creatures, we want to feel like a part of a process. Have an emotional and personal connection to something. Duluth Pack can give you just that experience.

Whether you trot into our retail store located in Canal Park or scan our website ( here ) you come across an abundance of products that can be handcrafted for you. But how to get that personal touch we talk about? You can shop any one of our Duluth Pack products and request a monogram embroidery. It’s the ultimate touch for that perfect gift. It’s like the cherry on top of a really good sundae.

Start personalizing your pack today. Click THIS link and get started!

Happy shopping, friends!

As friends and businesses in the same type of industry, it was basically (it was actually completely) a no brainer to partner up with our great pals at Pendleton Woolen Mills who are located in Portland, Oregon. On a side note, all of a sudden we seem to have a thirst for beer. Coincidence?

It compliments any season Mother Nature curve balls at us and replicates the American heritage of both companies; Duluth Pack and Pendleton.

Own a piece of American heritage today! Trust us, it’s drool worthy and be prepared for some extra attention headed your way when you wear it, because it’s a real stunner. Shop the collection HERE .

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME

Quality or quantity. Us humans usually have to choose one or the other. You either get a lot of bang for your buck or spend your pretty penny on lots of things. Either way, one is not right over the other. However, here at Duluth Pack, we believe that having quality friends and quality memories are what mean most. Whether it be drinking wine while watching Netflix on the sofa, sitting on the shoreline with a fishing pole in hand, or getting away on a weekend vacay together. Friends are the people who know us inside and out and will be there for us during our roughest or most amazing days. Friends are keepers.

We like to think your Duluth Pack product is like a friend. No, it doesn’t have a beating heart and can’t be the shoulder you cry on, but it’s there for you. Your Duluth Pack will carry you throughout the adventures, memories, and years to come. Your Duluth Pack will age, as humans do, and it will get bumped and bruised, but it will be there for you. It’s almost if you and your Duluth Pack become one. The handcrafted product will actually mold to your stature. The shoulder straps will have indents and grooves that only your body has created. That’s what really makes a Duluth Pack extra special. It’s guaranteed not only for your life, but its life. Which means, it probably will outlive you!

We’ve been making memories with our customers since 1882 and we have no plans on ever stopping. We cherish the adventures and stories we make with all of you and know a friendship with our customers is second to none. You’re 100% quality to us.

Thank you to photographer, Paige Hogan for the amazing photos pictured in this blog. Please feel free to check out her site HERE .

Cane we do it? Yes, we cane! Now, before you think, “Hey Duluth Pack, you spelt the word can wrong!” just know it was intentional. Why would we do that? Well, because we partnered up with widely known Duluth and award winning photographer, Amanda Cane from Jane Cane Photography, that’s why!

Whether you have visited Duluth, Minnesota or not, it’s legendary for the fall season. The crisp and fresh air, the noise of Lake Superior slapping against the rocks, and the gorgeous vibrant colors of auburns, burnt oranges, bright reds, and stunning yellows on each leaf. It’s almost mystical. So, to enjoy the most breathtaking season that nature has given us here in the northland, we wanted to enjoy it to full capacity. On a weekday, Amanda trotted out with her sidekick camera, All American models, two fuzzy pups (seriously how adorable are they?!) and packs on packs on packs from no other than us, of course!

PRODUCTS FEATURED IN THE SHOOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE INCLUDE:

1) DULUTH PACK ALL WOOL SCOUT PACK AVAILABLE HERE

2) DULUTH PACK RED WING LOGO MUG AVAILABLE HERE

3) DULUTH PACK MARKET TOTE AVAILABLE HERE

4) DULUTH PACK WOMEN’S 3/4 LENGTH LOGO SHIRT AVAILABLE HERE

5) DULUTH PACK LOGO MUG AVAILABLE HERE

6) DULUTH PACK MEDIUM SPORTSMANS DUFFEL AVAILABLE HERE

This shoot for us was a serious treat. Not only is Amanda a genuine human being and unbelievable photographer, but she is a customer of Duluth Pack! She knows how to capture the essence of our brand and promote the raw products just as they are – no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Check out her website HERE and make sure to book her for your next photoshoot. Trust us, you’ll thank us you did!

A special thanks to Amanda from Jane Cane Photography. We are very grateful to have worked with you!
