    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.

No Frills, Just Good Work

No modern bells and whistles. It is just a simple, well made pack that feels like it will last a lifetime.

No hammer Loop?

I am not sure if Frost River consulted with a geologist on this. I can imagine several features that would make this pack an actual geologist pack.
-hammer loop for rock hammer
-very small pockets for hand lens and acid
-pen/pencil holder
-field book pocket
-chisel loop
signed,
an actual geologist
