    Raw Reliability

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. had 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. Our Geologist Daypack is modeled after the pack that J.B.H. carried on many of his explorations in the U.S. and Canada, Brazil and Africa. He often basecamped 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.

Geologist Pack

Love my new pack, very well constructed and comfortable to wear in the field while Land Surveying here in Hawaii.

Awesome day hike pack

My first Frost River pack. I have several other canvas rucks, however I am blown away with the quality of this one. Great size and comfortable pack for day hikes, trips to the office and any other time you need to bring along some items.

Outstanding daypack

The pack is extremely well made. I find no fault in the workmanship, materials or design. The pack is excellent. Now since nothing is perfect I think, for me, the addition of two loops on the front, between the pockets, for the purpose of carrying a geologists pick and an inside pocket inside and across the back, the size of the back, to carry file folders, 8” x 10” photos, a chest strap, would make this the perfect pack for any geologist.

Geologist pack and several other packs and sweatshirts

I have only the highest praise for all in all categories. That must get tiresome hearing. So to really nitpick it would be my zip up sweatshirt. The pockets are too small even for my hands let alone items without losing them on trail or around camp. But, I still love it!

Geologist Pack - Awesome

Just purchased the geologist pack and am impressed with the quality of the build. I do field archaeology and am confident this will hold up well to rough conditions. Have taken it on a few outings thus far and love it. The only constructive criticism I have is to consider offering the shoulder strap upgrades on this one. The shoulder straps are quality leather and quite durable, but a little uncomfortable at first--until they ultimately get broken in. Again, really pleased with this and feel I made a good choice here.
