Who we are

“The Frost River has a smattering of everything—large and small lakes, beautiful falls, winding beaver streams and high beaver dams, tough, poorly-maintained portages, canoe-able rapids and adventurous options. It is by far my favorite route in the Boundary Waters.” — Cliff Jacobson

Canoe packs are built for a very specific task (hauling the stuff that will sustain you) in a very specific environment (the Northern Wilderness). In this setting, things like a seam ripping or a sidewall tearing or a strap breaking—little failures that would be an annoyance in everyday life—come with huge consequences.

Which is why we make every pack and every bag in the manner we know to be the most effective at delivering superior performance—The Old Way.

Our forefathers—the loggers and trappers and traders and adventurers who called the deep North Woods home—relied on their packs to perform in unforgiving and unrelenting environs. That expectation, that urgency for performance, was passed on to us.
