Exactly as described, great bag for easy access in the canoe.
Bought this to attach via clips to my Nessmuk pack, for a trip to France. Provided a bit of extra space and fast access to those things. Not traditional use as such but proved versatile and helpful. Excellent construction/very handy.
Nice big pockets for everything I need on the go, and it’s got that great, traditional look!
I am a confirmed Frost River addict. Having ordered a Merrick Canoe for spring of 2021. I was pondering the canoe page of the FR catalog when my wife intervened and said Stop don't do it. SWMBO sure but she's sweet and means well. And having ordered the canoe on an ask forgiveness later basis I politely refrained. Turns out she suggested this Thwart Bag and the Bow Bag to her parents who then urged me to buy both on their dime for my Christmas gift. Nice. All is well that ends well.
This bag is perfect for what I needed it for, a handy place to store my map and rain gear as well as anything else you need easy access to during a long canoe trip, without having to dig into your big pack. This is the third item I’ve purchased from frost river and their quality is seriously unmatched! I couldn’t be more pleased.
