Cotton web shoulders straps at a thick 2.25in wide allow for comfortable carrying. They have leather attachment straps at the bottom for extra adjustability.


In 1832, led by an Anishinabe guide, explorer Henry Rowe Schoolcraft found the headwaters of the Mississippi River and combined the latin words veritas caput (meaning "true head") to name the Minnesota lake found there "Itasca."

Just as Lake Itasca opens up to the Mighty Mississippi our Itasca Outset Daypack opens wide to allow access to all your contents. With a deep six-inch gusset the Itasca Outset doesn't skimp on access or capacity. The robust zip closure is strong, secure, and reaches down low on the sides of the bag. Zip it open and see what's in there!

Two secure pockets on the front of the pack allow quick access to small stuff. Several lash tabs allow customization of the front panel. Inside, there's a padded sleeve to separate contents or provide sanctuary for a laptop. Wide web backstraps support the pack with utility and grace. The premium materials, handcraft construction, and great layout combine to offer quick, comfortable access to whatever you choose to carry. Made at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota.

    Very disappointing, however good workmanship.

    They basically took a briefcase and turned it on its end with little thought to functionality. Instead of having the zipper on the seam, giving you the full 6 inches when packing, it was placed half way down the 6 inch side. So when you pack it, you have 3 inches, and you get to pile another 3 inches on top of that, then have fun zipping it shut; even more fun when you open it to get at something and things start falling out. In addition, if they had put the zipper on the seam, they would have been able to put a pocket on each side that could be used for water bottle sized items. The three organizer slots on the inside sleeve are useless because each one is barely big enough to hold my ID badge, and I thought I would be able use one for letters, bills, etc. - two slots would have made more sense; or two additional organizer slots on the inside of the sleeve. No clip for keys, which I would think would be standard. I broke my rule of buying something without seeing it first and have paid the price. Instead of numerous pictures showing the front of the pack, how about some showing items in the various slots?
