Description

Tough, wide, web handles go around the circumference of the bag. There's a dust flap over the main zipper to protect the opening and keep contents dry. A roomy pocket on the side closes with a leather strap and brass post. There's a grab handle on one end and a low-profile zip pocket on the other.

Four sizes make up the Explorer line –the small is neat and trim for just the basics, sized like a gym bag. The CarryOn is a weekend bag that is compliant to bring on board commercial airlines. The Medium is bigger, a handy gear bag for the outdoors. The Large Explorer lives up to its name. It begins to approach the scale of a hockey bag. It can carry a LOT.

Whether you're hitting the trails or exploring new cities, trust in the durability, functionality, and style of the Explorer Line to accompany you on every journey. Just like all Frost River products, the Explorer Duffels are all built from waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware in Duluth Minnesota and backed by a lifetime guarantee.


Durability meets sustainability and craftsmanship with the Frost River Explorer Duffel Collection. Each bag in this collection is skillfully crafted to harness the power of the sun and designed to last a lifetime.


Unlike most duffel bags on the market, Frost River takes construction to the next level. We incorporate extra fabric into the seams of the bag, not only enhancing its strength but also enabling us to deconstruct the bag for repairs and reassemble it with the same integrity. This unique approach ensures that your Frost River bag will stand the test of time, no matter where your adventures take you.


We understand the importance of reliability, which is why we use solid brass hardware in all of our handcrafted goods. Brass hardware is known for its ability to bend before breaking, providing you with the time needed to reach your destination and back again with a fully functioning pack.

Explore the Explorer Duffel Collection today and discover the perfect blend of sustainability, craftsmanship, and durability.

Beautiful, functional, quality

WOW I love love love this bag. The quality of materials is amazing, the size is roomier than expected, but also when not in use, it packs down pretty small and stores well. I have been showing off this bag to everyone I can because it is so beautiful. Other plus sides, the shipping was very quick and the bag came packaged very nicely. Thank you! I can’t wait to be using this bag for a very long time :)

Loved

This was a birthday gift for my husband and he's thrilled. Our son-in-law who's a veteran, has two already, but when he saw the size of my husband's he immediately wanted one too. It's a relief for me that I now know what to get him for Christmas. Keep me updated on sales?

Very impressed with the quality of the product as it is well put together
and perfect for week end gettaways and airplane carry on. Also looks
sharp compared to every day luggage and nylon bags.
