Frost River Geologist Bushcraft Pack
These beautiful packs are hand made in Duluth, Minnesota by a company called Frost River.
Roaming the North Country in search of Iron Ore can lead an intrepid young geologist into all sorts of adventure. James Byron Hustad was known as J.B.H. and explored Minnesota’s Iron Range in search of underground deposits for U.S. Steel in the middle of the last century. Equipped with his trusty "rucksack” he would often travel by canoe or float plane into secluded roadless areas.
The Frost River Geologist Daypack is modelled after the pack that J.B.H. carried on many of his explorations in the U.S. and Canada, Brazil and Africa. He often base camped for weeks during the summer, and was sometimes dropped off to explore uncharted claims. He lived a life of exploration, self reliance, and survival that any adventurer could envy.
Built from waxed canvas, great leather, solid brass… the Geologist bushcraft pack is made to last.
Due to the natural characteristic of the waxed canvas and leather used in production, each pack is individual and will have slight colour variations, this is to be expected and is in no way a fault with the product.
