Frost River Arrowhead Trail Rolltop Pack
At Hand-Eye Supply, we value traditional craftsmanship and durability, so when we discovered Frost River’s line we fell in love. Located in Duluth Minnesota, Frost River handcrafts beautiful bags and soft goods based on traditional outdoor equipment. Designed to withstand rough outdoor conditions and daily use, their tough straightforward pieces temper nostalgia with common sense and contemporary style, and they make it look easy.
Durability and versatility go together in this new backpack design. The waxed cotton top-roll style keeps water out easily and compresses neatly when the load is low, but allows quick attachment of even bulky loads. The roll-top also sports heavy snaps, to keep your delicates safe even when unrolled or packed to the gills. Heavy stitched leather tabs provide extra lashing points and a little pop of color - good for carabiners or bike lights. Inside you've got a hanging zippered pocket for small thing organization. Outside are two slip pockets for anything you need close at hand, grommeted to keep water (or spiders, or pine needles) from collecting. The thick pistol belt cotton web shoulder straps distribute weight well, and hang comfortably from a central yoke ring which prolongs their fatigue life and looks suave.
The bag is built from 18oz. waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware. The bottom is double lined for puncture and moisture protection, and the whole thing is heavily stitched for real long-lasting construction. The Arrowhead Traill Rolltop is a solid choice, whether you're hitting the bike path or the mountainside.
