Canoe Thwart Bag

(5 reviews) Write a Review

This durable and water resistant canoe accessory has multiple compartments to maintain organization. The compartments can fit plano boxes well.

Cars and trucks offer cool compartments all over the place, why leave the organization out of your canoe? The Canoe Thwart Bag hangs in front of the paddler sitting in the stern of a canoe (or anywhere else you are able to hang it within reach). Twin zipper slides offer access to the main compartment. Our Plano® Boxes fit great and keep tackle organized. A leather flapstrap keeps the full length pocket secure, waxed canvas keeps contents dry in the rain. Add some carrying capacity to your canoe and keep your necessary items handy.

    Nice big pockets for everything I need on the go, and it’s got that great, traditional look!

    Thwarted? Not hardly...

    Posted by John Gooding on Dec 29th 2020

    I am a confirmed Frost River addict. Having ordered a Merrick Canoe for spring of 2021. I was pondering the canoe page of the FR catalog when my wife intervened and said Stop don't do it. SWMBO sure but she's sweet and means well. And having ordered the canoe on an ask forgiveness later basis I politely refrained. Turns out she suggested this Thwart Bag and the Bow Bag to her parents who then urged me to buy both on their dime for my Christmas gift. Nice. All is well that ends well.

    Awesome thwart bag!

    This bag is perfect for what I needed it for, a handy place to store my map and rain gear as well as anything else you need easy access to during a long canoe trip, without having to dig into your big pack. This is the third item I’ve purchased from frost river and their quality is seriously unmatched! I couldn’t be more pleased.

    This is a great bag and perfect for the canoe. I found that if you pair it with a FR leather shoulder strap it can act as a great day trip bag carrying everything I need. Great capacity, well built and versatile!

    The bag arrived quick and was better than expected. The waxing is thick and I am sure this will last a long time.
