| The Duluth Pack Limited Edition Southwest Collection |

It’s here and back by popular demand. For a very limited time, the Southwest Collection by Duluth Pack is back. This time, it’s the last time the collection will ever be available. Don’t miss it before all items are sold out once again. In the fall of 2015, Duluth Pack launched the Southwest Collection both in store and online at Duluthpack.com . Within one week, the hundred of pieces from the entire collection were sold out.

With great demand, Duluth Pack was able to work a deal with Pendleton Woolen Mills (the suppliers of the gorgeous printed wool) and bring it back for one last run.

The collection is available in Duluth Pack’s top selling styles, The Medium Sportsman’s Duffel , The #100 Shell Bag , The Scout Pack , The Market Tote , and the Mini Haversack .

Everything makes a comeback at some point and wool is certainly here to stay for good. Duluth Pack’s Classic Buffalo Check Plaid has been the hot seller this past year and we don’t see it stopping anytime soon in the future. Whether you’re speed walking in the crowded streets of New York City, sipping on drinks at a local eatery in Los Angeles, or complimenting your layered outfit in Minneapolis, Duluth Pack is sure to be the best accessory. Forewarning, you will get complimented, so be prepared! The wool material is from the established Woolrich brand and radiates an instant cool vibe with the one-of-a-kind detailing and craftsmanship you expect from Duluth Pack. In multiple styles, bags, and unique designs, it’s sure to please the eyes (and even your wallet!).

Due to the high demand and requests, we have recently launched new styles in the classic wool pattern. Check out the new designs right here .

MORE THAN CANVAS AND LEATHER PRODUCTS

March 28, 2016

Duluth Pack . Two words and one big history.

The brand, Duluth Pack has been proudly around since 1882, which makes us the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack maker in the USA. The company’s products from canoe packs, to business portfolios and purses alike, have been passed down from generations, telling a story of where they have been and what they have held. In the Duluth Pack flagship store, located in Canal Park in Duluth, MN, there are plenty of products that have tested the lifetime guarantee warranty on craftsmanship and hardware. One olive drab portfolio, showcases it’s battle markings after being deployed to overseas. Another, getting jolted by the direct hit of lightening and still staying in a pack-like-shape. The third, being scratched and bit by a hungry black bear, yet still a pack to carry contents in.

When some hear the words Duluth Pack , a canvas pack comes to mind, but the Duluth Pack brand is more than just that. Duluth Pack prides itself on the infamous statement, “If it isn’t broken, why fix it?”. The 133 year old company has been making products the same way, each handcrafted by one sewer, riveted with original techniques, and cut with precision on the highest quality of American leather, canvas, and wool around. Once each bag, specifically made just for you is complete, the sewer signs their signature. This is a personal expression that the Duluth Pack brand prides itself on that’s unique and promotes their skillful employees.

The Duluth Pack factory is available for tours on a weekly basis. They are open Monday – Thursday. Please call ahead to reserve a tour spot. The factory is located at 1610 W. Superior St in Duluth, MN where Duluth Pack has been handcrafting bags and packs in the same and only Duluth Pack factory for over 104 years. Now that’s impressive!

The Duluth Pack retail store is located in energetic Canal Park in Duluth, MN. The Duluth Pack selection at the retail store includes all products in all colors, canvas, wool, and leather options. There are other well-known brands available for purchase such as, The North Face, Patagonia, Hydroflask, Merrell, Keen, Smartwool, Pendleton, Camelback, and many more.

With age comes wisdom and Duluth Pack has a history and story to share.

BUFFALO CHECK IS BACK

January 21, 2016
FullSizeRender 10

Everything makes a comeback at some point and wool is certainly here to stay for good.

Last season, we heard over and over about the so called, “Lumbersexual” trend that rocked our country. Now if you ask us Northerns, this classic buffalo check print, bearded faces, and waxed canvas coats have been around since we can remember. It’s almost a part of our identity. Since the look has now gone mainstream, many are realizing that the timeless red and black buffalo check print is worth the investment. We couldn’t agree more.

Now introducing in 2016 the All Wool Grab N Go ! It comes with the same style as the original all canvas style, but with a little extra something to store either your hygiene products, pencils, or lip glosses. Plus, the price isn’t going to make your uncomfortable either.

If you’re looking for more of a pack style, we’ve got you. The Classic Wool pattern is available in many of our styles, like The Roll-Top Scout Pack , Scout Pack , #50 Shell Bag , and the Sportsman’s Tote Bag .

Wishing you all a wonderful day ahead!

Oh do we have one big surprise up our sleeves for you! Today, is the day we have launched our first ever very limited edition collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills! That’s right, we’ve knocked your socks off, again!

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?

The extremely limited edition line including these item styles:

SMALL SAFARI DUFFEL

LAKEWALK TOTE

#100 SHELL BAG

MEDIUM MARKET TOTE

SCOUT PACK

These limited edition products are exclusively sold on the Duluth Pack website along with our retail location in Canal Park, Duluth, MN. The Pendleton Wool we hand chose is a rich blend of hues including mossy greens, deep plums, and rich ivories. 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 .

Happy surprise, everyone!

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

7) DULUTH PACK TRAVERSE CROSSBODY BAG 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!
