Our Test Panel Keeps us real
They use, abuse and improve our products for you
Sure, they look nice and clean in their photos. But most of the time, the hardworking women on the Duluth Test Panel are covered in dirt, sawdust, paint and animal hair. Experts in their respective fields, they know which products work on the job and which can't cut it.
And they're the first to tell us if a Duluth product isn't up the standards their jobs demand. Because we give them prototypes to use and abuse months in advance, we're able to apply their practical suggestions to many of our products. From pockets and buttons to fabric and sizing, they help us make sure the goods that end up in your hands are real-world useful and built to last. Not many companies take the time to solicit feedback before developing actual products – but it's just one more way we keep it real.
