The North Bay Daypack is made with waxed canvas, webbed cotton, premium leather, and solid brass hardware in Duluth, MN.

“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. We build them in two sizes from trusty waxed canvas at our shop in Duluth. One has a 5” gusset and is a classic daypack size, the 7” 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. In Heritage Black, the North Bay is professional, sleek and understated. Heritage Black features all the same high quality materials as Field Tan, leather from Red Wing, MN, waxed canvas and solid brass hardware. It's built right from the start in Duluth, MN. The padded sleeve on the Heritage Black North Bay comes in Field Tan for increased visibility of your gear on the inside of the pack. The rest is solid black and antiqued solid brass. Here's a pack you'll enjoy for decades to come. Frost River Canvas My State Buckskin Patch Info Below.

    The last backpack

    Posted by Evan Pietrone on Sep 17th 2021

    This thing is amazing. It’s just built so well. Really really happy I bought it. Seems like it’s the last backpack I’ll ever have to buy. Tough enough to double as a bullet-proof vest(probably). Convinced now I need everything else you make from the high level of hand made quality I see here. THANK YOU!!!!!

    Very Well Made

    Posted by Steven on Aug 9th 2021

    Got this bag for my teenage son to use for school. He's rough on his things so time will tell, but very impressed with the quality of material and work. My only disappointment was that it didn't have a water bottle pocket on the side, I didn't notice that when ordering but would have been nice. But all in all it appears to be a great bag that will last many years. He loved the state patch as well.

    Northbay Backpack

    Posted by Mark D Shirey on May 9th 2021

    Have only had a few weeks, but seems well made and very sturdy. Only complaint is, on the inside the material at the seams could be a little neater. It doesn't have any effect on the function of the daypack, just thought it would look better.

    Good material, provides a lot of space-exactly what I expected. If you are looking for a good, robust outdoor backpack, this is the one.

    Awesome Upgrade

    Posted by Bryant Johnson on Sep 13th 2020

    I had previously owned a Duluth Pack but it had ripped and torn from typical use. This bag offers heavier material, more pockets and less cost than the alternative. Both great bags but this one offers more advantages than the competitors. Thanks for making such a great bag and putting so much care into the craftsmanship.

    Best Backpack I've Purchased

    Posted by Elaine on May 28th 2020

    My backpack came a bit more on the army green side than I was expecting...but I love it! Kinda a mix between Army green and tan. Super sturdy and looks great. Everything from the zippers to the all the pockets are top quality. I expect and know, I will have this backpack for many years. Thanks for making it!!
