The moment I unwrapped this bag I fell in love with it. You can tell just by looking that it's high quality, and a touch confirms it. The leather is so smooth and dense, and the brass hardware so strong. And pockets! I love a bag with many pockets to keep things organized. In fact I splurged on this one over the Carrier Messenger because I wanted more pockets and dividers. I bought it to take to work in an office, but I carry a LOT of stuff with me so I needed a large, durable bag to stand up to my tossing it around. Will also double as a perfect travel bag. It's constructed so much better than designer crossbody purses I've bought in the past, and made in the USA to boot. Also shoutout to customer service for answering my color questions. I went with the black version and I'm glad I did, feels a little more stylish.
This is both the beauty and the beast. Beautiful look and feel. Rugged construction with a ton of room and additional pockets. I also have two packs I previously purchased. You get what you pay for with Frost River. High craftsmanship with excellent support. They are my go to BWCA supplier.

I’ve been searching for the perfect work bag for awhile now and I think I’ve found it. I have several bags from Frost River and the quality is always great. This particular bag is roomy enough to hold everything I need for work but still not too bulky. It’s rugged, yet stylish and big enough for a short weekend trip. I’m sure it will be a perfect travel companion for years to come! 👍🏻
This is a wonderfully made bag that looks great. I use it for work and travel and holds everything I need for a weekend getaway. Only thing I would like better is if the strap closures were a clasp or other type of buckle.
Highly recommend this product and will buy more from Frost River in the future.
I have a hybrid desk job. Needed a work bag that can carry all of my work supplies (laptop, 2nd monitor, keyboard, notebooks, papers) and lunch in one package. This bag is huge on storage, think large tote, with enough organization for laptop and work essentials. If you've arrived at Frost River you know the quality and asthetic you're getting. This bag is not refined in a business casual sense but that was not a priority. Will note this thing gets heavy. It's 3.5# empty and becomes a load when loaded. I found the provided strap even with pad uncomfortable. Replaced with 1.5" leather strap from outside vendor. I have been using for 2 years and am very pleased. Shows no wear and appears will provide many more years of service. If you need to pack for a full day this bag is a workhorse you won't regret.
