Frost River Explorer Duffel Bag

Frost River


Had Sir Edmund Hillary, Sir Ranulph Fiennes or Robert Scott (of the Antarctic) been aware of the The Frost River Explorer Duffel Bag, they may have almost certainly selected it as their go-to support bag for all of their kit.

Over engineered for robustness and designed for heavy loads, the Explorer Duffel is equally at home strapped to a camel traversing the desert or, lashed to your Land Rover on safari. It is equally at home supporting more ordinary adventures on flights and weekends away. 

Wide, web handles circumnavigate the bag, meaning heavier loads can be managed easier. A dust flap covers the main zip, protecting it from rain and dirt and keeping your contents clean and dry.

A generous side pocket closes with a leather strap and brass post allowing for easy access. There's a grab handle on one end and a slim profile zip pocket on the other.

Offered in three sizes, the small is sized like a gym bag. The CarryOn is a weekend bag and as the name suggests, meets most commercial airline hand baggage requirements. The Large Explorer really does live up to its name; its considerable proportions mean that it can carry a lot.

All are built from waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware at Frost River in Duluth Minnesota and come with the Frost River lifetime guarantee.

Upgrade your bag with a Frost River buckskin padded shoulder pad here.

Explorer Duffel Bag

Really enjoy using the Duffel Bag. It has a rustic look, great build quality and solid fasteners. All in all very chuffed. I spoke to one member of staff after placing my order and they were very helpful. I then bought a second duffel bag in a smaller size because liked it so much.

Great exchange service

Purchased as gift, great quality and Medium was a great size for week long trips. The first one came but one of the buttons was out of alignment, I emailed a photo through and they gave me a free returns label to send it back for an exchange. Great service and had the new bag within a week!

Tough Bag

Currently abroad with it. Very thick waxed cotton. Have high expectations for its longevity and much cheaper than a Filson equivalent.

First Class bag

The duffel bag by Frist River exceeded my expectations. It's a first class piece of kit and feels ready for a ton of abuse. Service recet from Natural Man was superb too. Doubtless cheaper & nastier bags exist but you won't be disappointed with Frost River. Bought this Frost River bag for my brother (who's in the premium outdoor clothing business) and he loves it.
