Since it's a nice weekend in early fall which means perfect camping weather, I thought it might be good timing to make note of the latest Duluth Pack product, the Bushcrafter Pack. This is probably not one for laptops and magazines as it's made for the outdoors. It's made from a burly 18 oz. canvas in a sharp tan color along with the usual heavy duty brass and nickle hard wear. The bag is complimented by tradition brown leather trim and has taken on a slightly slimmer shape than it's predecessor. While the shape adjustment was made for an easier traverse through dense shrubbery, it might work just as well in the subways. If you're looking for a real back pack, look no further than Duluth.

Duluth have been making great looking bags for years. We first came across them last fall with the all of the intensive searching of Japanese websites between a couple different blogs. This spring, their bags are again hitting some of those shops. I have yet to see a Duluth product in a menswear boutique on this side of the world, and it may be unreasonable to expect to see much beyond Filson in terms of traditional field gear. This pack sack by Duluth is one of the most usable and one of my favorite looking from their collection. I really love the aesthetic of a canvas and leather back, as well as a ruck suck style bag. The bag is so stripped down of any bells or whistles that I'd be surprised if it even had an inside pocket, let alone a laptop sleeve. While it looks great, it wouldn't be the most ideal bag for day to day use, but for a quick bike ride, grocery run or a great looking accessory - perfect.
