As men, we find something incredibly fascinating about watching how things are made. Is the Discovery Channel partly to blame? Sure, but something about watching raw materials come together to create your favorite piece of gear is almost as awesome as watching that girl in the bar. It doesn’t matter if it’s a car, a donut, or a Duluth Wanderer Backpack, watching something get made makes you feel like part of the process.

When you finally pencil in some time to get out escape and see the world around you, you have a lot of choices when it comes to what’s going to hold all your stuff. Few are as awesome as the Duluth Wanderer Backpack ($165). With four pockets, a canvas body, and more leather than you’ve seen in one place outside of porn this is Indiana Jones’ backpack. If he were a two strap bag sort of guy. Thanks to the magic of the Internet, you don’t have to take our word for it.

Now that you’ve been fully vetted in the Duluth process,  you can bear witness to the quality that goes into each and every product that Duluth produces. Is it going to live your life for you? No, but it will help you from point a to wherever (in 8 colors, no less) when you decide not to unchain yourself from your desk.


Flint & Tinder has always been one of our favorites because they make updated, high-quality American staples–without being fussy, over-designed or bearing a huge price tag. Our latest favorite? This Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket. With classical trucker jacket styling and a flannel-lining for warmth, this Made in the USA trucker jacket is best in class.
