Minnesota's Tettegouche State Park consists of endless trails featuring six inland lakes, four waterfalls and a vast Lake Superior beach shoreline. Just as feature-full as the park it is named after, the Tettegouche Messenger Bag was designed for the adventurer who wants it all in one.


Two exterior zippered pockets are all you need to stash items you need easy access to. The Messenger's main flap is secured with a quick release solid brass g-hook. The main compartment of the Tettegouche Messenger is not only covered by the main flap, but also secured by a robust nylon zipper. Inside the main compartment, there is full-width slip pocket at the back and the front offers an organization panel.

The perfect messenger bag.

Was looking for something rugged with plenty of utility. Love this bag as it holds everything I need in an organized and easy to access manner. Love the extra details of the thick strap and brass enclosure fittings. Really like how the flap can be secured over the bag allowing me to fit other items underneath. There were also some reviews saying the strap was a little short however, I am over 6’2”and found it perfect as it rides on your hip as it’s supposed to with the strap fully extended. Great product.

Excellent, add quite zip pulls.

This is an excellent commuter bag. Just the right size. My only wish is that the zipper pulls were silicone covered or some other way made silent. I added para cord to mine so I don’t sound like a Christmas tree walking around. Also wish I could buy a cable organizer that fits this bag from Frost River.

Love the bag!

My only complaint, and this is my personal issue because of my height, is I wish the strap was longer. I’m 6’5” and I have this sort of issue with nearly everything I wear. Things are just not made for people my height. So, that’s not a knock on the quality of the bag! Everything I’ve bought from Frost River has been amazing quality, this bag included! An option for a longer strap would be nice.

The most versatile and functional EDC bag both in design and materials I’ve ever owned

I wish I had this bag during my active years with the State Police and Environmental Protection Services. Also I made add in my post graduate study years as well. Well Done Frost River !

Highly recommended

I bought it as a travel bag/gift for my wife. She found it’s the right size for airline carry on and has been using it for everyday carry.
