Frost River Explorer Duffel Bag ESB


The ESB is the Explorer Duffel but with the added benefit of hide away back-pack straps.

Had Sir Edmund Hillary, Sir Ranulph Fiennes or Robert Scott (of the Antarctic) been aware of the The Frost River Explorer Duffel ESB 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 ESB 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 two sizes. The CarryOn is a weekend bag and as the name suggests, meets most commercial airline hand baggage requirements. The Medium is big enough for most excursions.

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.
