Do nothing in haste, wrote Edward Whymper after his first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1868, look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end. We took Mr. Whymper’s words to heart as we designed this Knapsack: simple and well thought out — like the ones we see him wearing in old engravings from the Golden Age of Mountaineering.

The generous top-flap buckles over the Knapsack's ample opening; cordlock and drawstring cinch out spindrift and alpine blasts. Comfortably wide cotton web shoulder straps plus a large grab loop complete the pared-down elegance of the Frost River Knapsack. A classic daypack, simple, functional, and effective.

Perfect in every way! Very well designed and constructed, classic style, and comfortable fit when loaded down. I took it right out into a downpour the first day without a problem. Thanks so much!

Awesome little pack with just one issue

This is an awesome little pack and I purchased for use an airline personal bag when flying. It is well suited for that purpose from the compact size to the zippered inside compartment. However, the issue with this bag and several other FR bags is the straps are TOO SHORT and there is no way to add extenders. I am 5’8 and can lose a few pounds but even with straps fully extended they are just too tight for comfort.

Come on Frost River make straps on your bags longer. You can always use buckles to make a long strap shorter but a short strap means you are out of luck.

Great quality short straps

Bag was unbelievably built well. Although, I am 5'8 190lbs and the straps are all the way out and it barely fits on me. Only complaint is the short straps. I will definitely purchase a larger backpack when the time comes. Materials are the best of the best

Knapsack

I had good memories when I was young when my dad bought me a canteen and a knapsack.This is my fifth frost river pack and I was really impressed with this one.It is simple and it carries everything I need for a hike in the woods.It felt very comfortable it seems to ride a little higher than my other packs.I wish the straps were a bit longer for use with my heavy coat. Very happy with my purchase.
