Handcrafted Since 1882
Born in the late 1800s, and raised in the northern forests of Minnesota, Duluth Pack's mission is simple and straightforward. We provide premium handcrafted, American made canvas and leather products with a lifetime guarantee on all craftsmanship and hardware. We are the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack making company in the United States.
In the Beginning
Our story begins over 100 years ago with our founder Camille Poirier, a French-Canadian immigrant, at the helm. After migrating west to the northern waters of Duluth, Minnesota in 1870, he built a small shoe store with his little stock of leather and tools he had at hand. Little did the folks of this frontier town know, they desperately needed a durable product that was going to last through the seasons; especially the harsh Minnesota winters.
As Poirier outfitted those early American settlers, he saw a need for a new type of backpack to benefit trappers, traders, and timber workers of the day. After painstaking design and testing, he patented the "C. Poirier Pack Sack" on December 12th, 1882. Duluth Pack, as the brand would later become known, was born. This original pack design is still sold today as the #2 Original Pack. As time went on, Poirier's packs organically grew into a canoe bag for the early explorers of the Boundary Waters.
Over the Years
In 1911, Poirier sold his pack business to the Duluth Tent & Awning Company, which then evolved into the Duluth Pack known today. During those early frontier days, packs were manufactured for the rugged lumberjacks, miners, explorers, pioneers, railroad engineers and ship captains of the Midwest. From hay wagon covers to heavy canvas aprons quality became a staple of the brand.
With the twenties roaring right around the corner, Duluth Pack focused on what Americans were now asking for, travel and recreation products. Jump-starting our growth and popularity, Duluth Pack began selling bags to the first Abercrombie & Fitch store on Madison Avenue. This created many of the durable, premium-quality, packs, luggage bags, purses, and accessories that we are known for today.
As history faded, Duluth Pack's values have held strong for over a century. Meaning that every single piece of canvas or leather has been cut, sewn, riveted and crafted right in the same historic site where it all began. Pride has been a foundation for our brand, which is why we showcase the person behind pack through hand-signed special white tags located inside every finished bag, giving it that final American-made touch. Our products are built for a lifetime of use, and we are proud to stand behind them with our Lifetime Craftsmanship Guarantee.
Today, Duluth Pack's community has grown international, invoking adventure, not just for outdoor enthusiasts but for all demographics. Our packs and bags have endured the test of time. Although the canoeing lifestyle will forever be engrained in our heritage, we have evolved with our customers. Lasting generations, everyone who purchases one of our handcrafted packs adds to our never-ending history. Your story matters to us and we love hearing your Duluth Pack memories. Please do us a favor by sharing your story and join the Pack today.

我們的故事開始於100多年前，我們的創始人Camille Poirier，法國 - 加拿大移民，掌舵。在1870年向西遷移到明尼蘇達州德盧斯的北部水域之後，他建造了一家小型鞋店，裡面裝著他的皮革和工具。這個邊境小鎮的人們很少知道，他們迫切需要一種耐用的產品，這種產品將持續整個季節;特別是明尼蘇達州嚴酷的冬天。
由於Poirier為那些早期的美國定居者提供裝備，他認為需要一種新型背包來使當時的捕手，商人和木材工人受益。經過艱苦的設計和測試，他於1882年12月12日獲得了“C. Poirier Pack Sack”的專利。隨後該品牌的Duluth Pack誕生了。這個原始包設計今天仍然作為＃2原始包出售。隨著時間的推移，Poirier的包有機地成長為邊界水域早期探險家的獨木舟。
1911年，Poirier將他的包業務賣給了Duluth Tent＆Awning公司，後來又發展成為今天所知的Duluth Pack。在那些早期的邊疆時期，為中西部的崎嶇的伐木工人，礦工，探險家，先驅者，鐵路工程師和船長製造了包。從乾草車皮覆蓋到厚帆布圍裙質量成為該品牌的主要產品。
隨著二十幾年的咆哮，Duluth Pack專注於美國人現在要求的東西，旅遊和娛樂產品。 Duluth Pack開始向麥迪遜大道上的第一家Abercrombie＆Fitch商店出售包裝袋。這創造了許多我們今天所熟知的耐用，優質，包裝，箱包，錢包和配件。
今天，Duluth Pack的社區已經發展成為一個國際化的冒險之旅，不僅適用於戶外運動愛好者，也適用於所有人群。我們的包和袋經受了時間的考驗。雖然劃獨木舟的生活方式將永遠銘刻在我們的傳統中，但我們已經與客戶共同發展。持續幾代人，購買我們手工製作的包的每個人都增添了我們永無止境的歷史。你的故事對我們很重要，我們喜歡聽到你的Duluth Pack回憶。請幫我們分享您的故事。
