The Duluth, Minnesota-based company will be hosting Elizabeth Schulze, who will be on the ground for Good Morning America at Duluth Pack’s headquarters and manufacturing location on Tuesday, October 5th.

From April 2020 – September 2020, Duluth Pack proudly manufactured over 25,000 reusable and Made in USA Healthcare Gowns for those on the frontlines. The PPE Healthcare Gowns were distributed nationwide and used among hospitals, dental offices, and nursing homes.
As Tom Sega, the CEO of Duluth Pack, states, “This is an incredible opportunity for the Duluth Pack company and brand. To have as many people as possible become educated with our products, history, and our brand's story is something we do not take for granted. We are incredibly proud of this achievement. It was a privilege to step up and help our heroes on the frontlines.” Sega added, “Continue to support hardworking Americans and Made in the USA companies and manufacturers.”
The Duluth Pack company, known for its original canoe pack styles, has grown exponentially with an array of items that span across 350 different styles. The products range from outdoor packs, backpacks, crossbody purses, duffels, and more. They are intended for rugged adventures, including outdoor activities and everyday life.
“We are incredibly honored to have Duluth Pack featured on such a vast scale,” said Andrea Johnson, Duluth Pack’s Marketing Manager. “We continue to thank our frontlines heroes, and we also thank Good Morning America for highlighting companies like ours who stepped up and pivoted. It’s beyond appreciated.”
As always, each Duluth Pack handcrafted item includes three tags on the inside of each product – the authentic Duluth Pack tag, the American Made tag, and the Handcrafted By tag. Each craftsperson hand signs the bag they proudly handcrafted for the customer.
