This past Christmas I received a wonderful Duluth Pack Scout Pack from Emily and Kyle. There is a lot to love about this backpack; it is slim and simple, durable, made in the U.S.A., and comes in a variety of cheerful colors. I have the red one pictured on the bottom left.
This is a great city backpack, but I hope to take it on a hiking or canoeing day-trip sometime this summer (much like the scene below).
