Field Satchel

(7 reviews) Write a Review

2.00 LBS

A shoulder bag that’s ready to head out whenever you are. It doesn’t matter if “out” means birding in the rainforest or downtown to the coffee shop— this trusty satchel will get your stuff there and back again in durable waxed canvas style. Plenty of pockets and dividers offer spots to store your stuff. the size works for tablets whether digital (like an iPad) or analog (like a small sketchpad). It’s a great purse, it’s a burly haversack, add a Plano® box and it's a tackle box... it’s reliable softgoods made at Frost River in Duluth Minnesota. Available in Heritage Black as well as Field Tan, the Field Satchel lets you choose which environment to blend in with, and which you'd like to carry with you. In Heritage Black, it's professional, sleek and understated. Heritage Black features all the same high quality materials as Field Tan, leather from Red Wing, MN, waxed canvas and solid brass hardware. It's built right from the start in Duluth, MN in solid black and antiqued solid brass. Here's a shoulder bag you'll enjoy for decades to come.

    Love this bag

    Posted by Donnell Carlson on Apr 12th 2019

    I use this bag every. single. day. It is my version of s purse/work bag. It is durable and protects my items from the weather as well. My computer fits inside as well as in the back pocket. Even with daily use for over a year, it only has one tiny hole in the canvas.

    Like it was made for me

    Posted by Darby on Mar 8th 2019

    I’ve tried multiple bags from other brands, trying to find one that’s perfect for me. I’ve been an admirer of FR for 10 years, I wish I had saved myself time and money and just started with this bag.

    It really does seem like years back as they were designing the bag, they thought to themselves “What will Darby need in 2019”. It is absolutely perfect for my daily carry. It’s beautifully constructed and handsome in appearance.

    A few small things I would change and I would rebuy the bag in a heartbeat if they added these.
    1. I would love a handle.
    2. I think this bag would be a great candidate for the Sam Brown stud closure that’s found on the Vintage messenger. But the flap is long and heavy, so I hardly close the bag completely.
    3. The FR logo patch is a little big for the bag. I think it would look great with a smaller patch.

    But FR are the geniuses behind the design, not me. So I am sure they had their reasons.

    Beter than i expected

    Posted by Fred V. on Dec 12th 2018

    I needed something to carry my iPad Pro, charge cable, Apple Pencil and a couple other pens/markers without creating a lot of weight/bulk that I did not need. This Satchel fits the bill perfectly. There is additional room should I need it for other items. I purchased the “large” size. I couldn’t be more happy with the purchase. I have purchased several pieces of their luggage, and this item lives up to the quality of their more expensive pieces. Great quality for the price. I have become a loyal customer.

    So this is why people like Frost River

    Posted by James on Nov 6th 2017

    Arrived today and is the first Frost River product I've seen first hand. Really impressed by the quality of workmanship and materials. Looks and feels like it will last decades. Pocket layout is highly functional, and, in our current decade, at least, the inside front slip pocket is the perfect size for a small iPad; back slip pocket fits an e-reader. The leather shoulder pad does a good job of distributing the weight of a full pack, and is textured enough on the underside to keep a good grip on your shirt/coat. Excellent all around.

    I bought this bag almost in error as I was looking for something larger. It has become my everyday bag/purse,whatever. I carry my wallet, cheque book, pen, pencil and a marker, note pad,phone, iPad and kindle on occasion. I haven't lost or mislaid any of the daily essentials since buying this product.

    Excellent quality and usability

    Posted by Michael on Jul 18th 2017

    I live in Australia and I bought the field satchel around three years ago. I've used it nearly daily. It's small enough for taking the essentials around the city or when traveling. I spent six months traveling around Australia last year, and I took this satchel everywhere. It's been through the outback and the cities, and though it's a comfortable size, it often surprises me how much it can hold if necessary! Highly recommended.
