“There is nothing like the big open water of North Bay with a little steam rising off it on a clear, calm morning to begin a long Quetico adventure.” -Adam Macht, a canoe country guide at Piragis Northwoods Company in Ely, MN. Our North Bay Daypack is just as at home in of one of Piragis' canoes as it is shuttling to and from campus or work.

Description

We build them in two sizes from trusty waxed canvas at our shop in Duluth. One has a 5in gusset and is a classic daypack size, the 7in is deeper, perfect for boxy or bulky items. All have a sleeve at the back for storing flat stuff, you get the choice to have it padded or not. The zippers go all the way down allowing the pack to open wide. Interior pockets provide organization. Available in Heritage Black as well as Field Tan, the North Bay Daypack lets you choose which environment to blend in with, and which you'd like to carry with you.

Daypack

Amazing durability, quality, and value. Had for two weeks, used everyday for work. Feels like it will last a lifetime!

Great pack as always!

We bought it to use as a diaper bag and then when he’s older will make a great pack for him. Our other children and my wife and I all use and carry FR packs. Thank you for great USA made products and also for still having a paper catalog which is nice as we live off grid in Alaska and it’s nice to read with no electricity! I attached a picture of my Nessmuk Pack which is my favorite day pack.

Awesome pack

I needed a new EDC pack and really wanted something with a heritage vibe. So glad I came across this pack! It’s built like a tank and has plenty of room for my gear. No doubt this will last a long time.

Great pack!

I purchased this pack for a trip I took to AZ. The airline I used had a strict policy regarding personal bags and the North Bay Daypack had the perfect dimensions. I called the store to be sure I could get it delivered in time, and they told me they would watch for the order and get it out as soon as possible. It was sent that day, and it arrived a few days in advance. The pack is bomb-proof, held all stuff for a 5-day trip (it was full...), and was comfortable! Very pleased with my purchase, and I look forward to using it again soon!
