Explorer Duffel Bag

(20 reviews) Write a Review

The carry-on Explorer Duffel by Frost River is made from 'field tan' colored waxed canvas. It comes with a shoulder strap and wide green cotton webbing.

Our most robust duffel bags, the Explorers are built to handle heavy loads. Tough, wide, web handles go around the circumference of the bag. There's a dust flap over the main zipper to protect the opening and keep contents dry. A roomy pocket on the side closes with a leather strap and brass post. There's a grab handle on one end and a low profile zip pocket on the other. Four sizes make up the Explorer line –the small is neat and trim for just the basics, sized like a gym bag. The CarryOn is a weekend bag that is compliant to bring on board commercial airlines. The Medium is bigger, a handy gear bag for the outdoors. The Large Explorer lives up to its name. It begins to approach the scale of a hockey bag. It can carry a LOT. All are built from waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware at Frost River in Duluth Minnesota.

    Removed a star as I don’t care for the leather handle strap and how it fits. The two handles are loose when buttoned together.

    I can't decide which is better...the duffel bag or the company & customer service. What an extremely amazing experience all around. From ordering, through contacting them with a special request and being amazed at how quickly they fulfilled it. Then receiving the bag and being blown away by the quality. Size is great. Construction is awesome. Heavy duty and built to last. I will be ordering more from Frost River in the future! Worth every penny.

    I have received the large explorer duffel bag and large is an understatement! This bag will hold the kitchen sink! I gave 4 stars because I have not used it yet. Other than that it looks and seems to be just as sturdy, durable, and useful as my "I'm out duffel" that I have used a few times so it should get the job done.

    Explorer Carryon Duffle

    Top quality construction, made in the USA of USA materials. Great looking bag - quite large. Not sure it would pass as a carryon if fully loaded. The webs that go under the bottom of the bag provide additional support to the double layer bottom. This was my first purchase from Frost River - very impressed.
