The Rambler Backpack by Duluth Pack Is Sure To Please

The Duluth Pack Rambler is more than a day bag but not too much for a short trek or lighter weight person. This medium sized backpack is handmade, as are all Duluth Pack's bags and gear, and is constructed to last. The Rambler is perfect for hauling extra clothes and gear for an overnight hike. The more fashion conscious hiker will also love the nine color choices: black, burgundy, hunters orange, khaki, navy, olive drab, spruce, and now, waxed canvas. The waxed canvas blocks most water and is offered for an additional $35 to the regular price. The retail price of the Duluthpack Rambler is $165 and, according to reviews from satisfied owners, it's well worth the price. Most owners would pay even more for it.

One pleased reviewer writes, "I've had my Duluth Pack Rambler for four years. I use it monthly and it still looks new. I love the pockets. An eighteen inch pack basket is a snug fit but works well in the pack. I also love the touch leather straps. The whole pack is tough and durable; great for short trips."

Featuring zippered pockets on the front of pack and underneath the pack flap, the Rambler has plenty of nooks and crannies to keep gear separated and easy to locate. There is a good size pocket on each side of the pack, too. Each one has a flap which fits down over the pocket and secures with a leather strap and buckle. The pack flap itself also comes comes a third of the way down the front of the pack for security. It secures with two riveted high quality leather straps and buckles; one on each side of the flap. Cotton web shoulder straps are comfortable from day one when you hoist it on your back for your first of many trips with your Duluth Pack Rambler backpack.

Each piece is built by hand with attention and detail to every step of the process and carries a lifetime warranty.

The functionality and quality of the Rambler backpack is evident by it's popularity with hikers all over the world.

I know I can toss it on the rocks to rest and know I don't have to worry about it."
