RELIABLE SOFTGOODS. HANDCRAFTED UNDER ONE ROOF.

W

ith Frost River, you inherit a pack, designed to timelessly endure, crafted by skilled tradespeople, and built from traditional premium materials. Everything Frost River is crafted in-house under one roof in Duluth, Minnesota, USA. From production to marketing, we are all one team, working in unison with the same goal of classically crafting the best traditional materials into reliable softgoods that last a lifetime and leave a legacy. Frost River goods are all built from waxed cotton canvas, premium leather and solid brass hardware. Our heritage stems from old-world craftsmen, trappers miners and makers who came to the North Woods to start anew. Today, we build our bags to the standards

of those who came before. We took generations of necessity and turned it into something that is somehow new and old at the same time. A new tradition from an old innovation. Canoe Packs are the foundation of the softgoods that we offer. They were built for a very specific task, hauling everything you need to sustain you in the North. In this setting, things like a seam ripping, a side-wall tearing or a strap breaking come with a huge consequence. This is why we make every pack and every bag in the same manner, whether it be a rugged bushcraft pack or a stylish tote, it will be overbuilt with the best materials and carefully crafted.

Handcrafted rolled leather handles add reliability, a double layer of waxed canvas at the bottom resists abrasion, and leather accents at the corners adds protection and class.
