Once again Kudos! to Dan Cooke. Turns out that the closeout pack I ordered was out of stock, so he's sending me a brand new Explorer for the closeout price. Told him on the phone tonight he's earned a customer for life. Great product, even greater customer service!!!!

Ordered 2 pink rucksacks this afternoon. One for each of our little girls. They're only 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 but you can't start gearing them up too soon. The little one will probably fit in the pack :) But at that price (doubt I'll see that price again) and worrying about him not making pink ones in the future we jumped on the deal. Should have a good pack for each of them for many years. Thanks for the heads up and the links for the sale.

Look here hybrid pack



If you roll over the picture you'll see another view showing the straps. There is also more written info there. They are awesome packs that should give you a lifetime of use. I have a pioneer and am planning on an explorer soon. At that price it's a no-brainer if you're looking for a pack.

Overthehill - I changed the CCS web site to make it easier to find the information on the Hybrid packs. Let me know if you have any trouble.


If anyone has any questions about the site or about a CCS product just let me know. I will do my best to answer questions and make the site easier to use.

Definitely a great pack and American made!!

I stopped at Dan Cooke's (owner of CCS-Cooke Custom Sewing) last night at about 6:15 or so and picked up and paid for my brand new Pioneer pack. Red and Black this time.


Dan and I talked for over an hour and he showed me a lot of his history and shared stories about past and future endeavors, trips and business.


I saw and discussed:


Cooke Custom Sewing Catalogs from the 1980's until today.


Old pictures of him, his wife and his friends.


Places he had been. Trips he had been on.


I learned a lot about the man and his business.


He started the business from his home in Fridley, MN 30 years ago. He now operates out of his lower level workshop at his home in Lino Lakes. The Rice Creek Wildlife preserve is out his back door. Dan does most of the sewing himself but employs a person in Minneapolis who helps out when things are busy.


The Hybrid pack that I purchased is called the Pioneer pack and it was first introduced in 1988. It was dubbed the "Maximum Impact" pack as everyone had just started talking about Minimum Impact camping. He looked at it as the pack allowing you to take what you needed in comfort. The only changes to the pack since 1988 are curved shoulder straps and the stuff collar.


The pack sold for $120 in 1988. Today the pack does not sell for that much more and probably less when you consider inflation rates for over 20 years.


We talked about business, foreign competition, knock offs in both the furniture business (that I work in) and the pack/tarp/outdoor gear business that Dan works in. We talked about 2009 trips and destinations (Dan climbed a mountain in Glacier this past year as well as body surfed in Maui) as well as trips this year (Hopefully Dan has a dog sled trip off of Gunflint soon).


In addition to the great conversation, I had him "Tune Up" my first CCS Pioneer pack that I have used for many years and many trips. Dan went over every inch of my original pack. He replaced a zipper that had some issues, he double stitched some seams that he felt needed reinforcement (I was not sure they did but he did) and he checked every buckle and strap to make sure they still worked to his satisfaction. He then carefully folded it, attached each buckle to it's mate and handed it back to me.


Now that is customer service. I left about 7:45 to drive home through the snow and freezing rain with my new pack, my old pack and a red CCS emblazoned caribiner attached to my new pack for a water bottle to attach to. I smile as I look at my packs knowing that the owner puts so much care and attention to detail in his work. It makes me feel good about my pack every time I use it.


This is not intended to be a commercial post or endorsement, but more of a testimonial and acknowledgement of my Friend Dan Cooke and all that he does, and all that he has contributed to the BW/Q community for the past 30 years.


Thanks Dan-your kindness, care and quality of work does not go unnoticed!!! Thanks for being you and being my friend.


Steve-Bogwalker.

Thanks for the update Bogwalker, and thanks to this kickass website. If it wasn't for this, I would not know that CCS is only a mile or 2 away from me. I better move some of the CCS things on my "wishlist" up to the top and drop in to meet Dan.

I LOVE this gear, the packs are well thought out for comfort and storage, and the tarps are quality made and lite and come with cord and stuff sack.
Thanks Dan for the great stuff.

We got our 2 Pink Rucksacks and all I can say is that we are now huge fans of Dan Cooke and CCS. The packs are great and the customer service was outstanding.


When talking to Dan on the phone he had asked if the packs were for kids and I said they were going to be birthday presents for our daughters. Well, in the box with the packs there were 2 little pink zippered toiletry/purse type bags for the girls. The girls think they are great. Can't wait for their birthdays to give them their packs.

I met Dan at the Midwest Freestyle Symposium last fall. He is an interesting fellow. He took the time to answer all my questions about his equipment and through in quite a few stories during our hour long conversation. I really enjoyed that hour.
I would love to see the canoe covers and food packs on sale. If they are not on the list, I'm going to buy at least the food pack this year.

I had planned on picking one up at Canoecopia, but my mother passed away that Monday. Feeling sorry for myself I ordered it and said "My mother just passed away and planned on seeing you at Canoecopia. I want multi-color, so just surprise me." I couldn't be happier with the color combo. It's bright, cheery, and it's the St. Louis Blues' colors too (LOL)! Great people to deal with, they even sent a "Sympathy card" with the order. WW

I finally used my rucksack on a trip to Spain. Great pack, I should have bought one for my wife and two kids.

Thanks for the heads up. The guide pack is what I've been waiting for. I hadn't checked their site yet in Aug. and almost missed it.
