Vintage Duluth Canoe/Portage Pack - $200 (South)

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: DULUTH PACK
model name / number: #2 Original Pack??
This is a hardly used, unbelievably rugged
pack for the serious wilderness canoe camper/explorer/portager, made in America. It is not even distantly related to a piece of modern-day ultra lightweight backpacking equipment. Stow or Strap on this monster, glide down the river, portage over the rocks, Be fully prepared for the bush! (Oh, and leave your smart phone at home).

Appears little used or not at all.

NOTE: Not sure which model this is, but one of the largest. Older. Leather ID sewn-on patch. Description below may NOT be this exact pack, but is closest Duluth Pack I could find manufactured by this 100+year old firm that matched size and features of this tough beauty. Hugely roomy - I easily fit a banker's box inside just to test out capacity. Big, handsome, uncompromisingly tough, with huge capacity. Tumpline for head included:
