It’s a bit of a stretch, but Frost River goods are quiet. What do we mean by that? Well imagine walking along a quiet woods trail at a brisk pace. You’re wearing synthetic pants, like snow or rain pants. All you hear is the swoosh, swoosh as they rub together. Now imagine the quiet of wearing a pair of your old jeans. It’s the same with packs. Synthetics can get loud, swooshing along as you go. In the winter, when the land is even more quiet, it really makes a difference. Frost River waxed canvas is more like those old jeans, it maintains a low profile in the woods. The brass’ll ring a bit, but secure the buckles and they’ll hush right up.
So however you enjoy winter (spring, summer or fall!), enjoy it with some quality waxed canvas packs and bags made by hand in Duluth. Pair that with a couple of our dutiful mittens, and you’ll be ready to strike out into the beautiful land of snow with confidence!
