RED WING SHOES | THE NEW WACOUTA COLLECTION

Two weeks ago Red Wing Heritage released the new Wacouta Collection which includes 2 Boots, 2 backpacks and 4 pouches. Following in the tradition of the Wabasha, a widely-celebrated moccasin-style Red Wing boot from the mid 2000s, the Wacouta is an outdoor leisure-inspired boot. Five miles south of Red Wing, Minnesota, along the banks of the Mississippi River, Wacouta Township is the site of a cabin that has been in the Red Wing family for three generations.

The Wacouta Boot is a casual lifestyle boot that blends premium Red Wing leather with waxed canvas from the longstanding American manufacturer, Fairfield Textiles. The mixed materials combine to create a supremely comfortable moccasin-inspired shoe. Built on a Honeywheat outsole with stitch-down construction the Wacouta’s lightweight flexibility makes for miles of comfort.

The Backpacks are inspired by classic packs, with construction and material updates that provide modernized comfort and lasting durability. Red Wing leather waxed canvas and solid brass buckles and rivets create a backpack that’s visually striking and supremely functional. Designed to match Wacouta footwear styles the Wacouta Backpack is distinguished in its details. Waxed canvas and Oil-Tanned leather deliver water resistance and durability while reinforced stitching and heavyweight leather straps ensure each pack is up for the rigors of everyday hauling.

The Wacouta Gear Pouches blend striking form with everyday functionality. Red Wing leather and American-made  waxed canvas and hardware make for years of reliable, utilitarian use. Available in 2 sizes each style.

DULUTH PACK | BIG BACKPACK – #2 CRUISER COMBO CANOE PACK

when i sold my cargo BULLIT bike i had to check another possibility to transport larger shopping stuff when i am on the road with my SCHINDELHAUER. so i remembered me the days before i got my BULLIT: yes, in the closet there had be a big CANOE PACK from DULUTH. i knew why i did not sell this wonderful backpack. it’s unbelievable what you can put into this 19H x 18W x 6D pack. when i shop food i use a special basket which i bought with the pack. believe me, this is really practicable and easy to carry. the #2 CRUISER COMBO is made in the usa & guaranteed for life. by standard it is made in olive drab or waxed 18-ounce canvas but a lot of other colors from blue to orange are available too. for more information check the DULUTH site. be careful there are a lot of other must-have bags and packs … pics | LTG
