Grand Marais Mail Bag

(8 reviews) Write a Review

The shoulder strap can be worn cross body and the top flap is secured down with solid brass hardware to keep the contents of the bag secure.

Styled after bags carried by letter carriers of the past, our Grand Marais Mail Bag has a unique vintage-utility feel. Lighter weight 10.10 oz. canvas sheds weight but stays reliable. The 1-1/2" cotton web shoulder strap is adjustable with a brass slider. The twin d-ring closure works with the foldable top so the bag can be folded short with a little load or extended up to be used to carry taller objects. Add a Plano® Box for organization.

    I had been looking for a simple, traditional, shoulder bag for quite a while. The bags I saw either had an abundance of features I did not care about or were made out of some new 'wonder material' that I could not warm up to. Then I found this bag. It is simple without a lot of pockets and is made out of traditional waxed cotton. It is perfect for my 'sketching/art' supplies, binoculars, a bottle of water, and a few other things when I head out to do some plein air painting.

    I have had my mail bag for almost 2 years . Is a great light weight piece of kit. Goes on hikes , goes in camper , In the canoe , goes everywhere. Recently returned from a BWCA trip. I packed it in a large pack to use as a daypack and fishing tackle box . Works great, not too big not too small .

    Fantastic bag!

    I don’t think I’ve loved a bag this much. Great construction and materials, it’s definitely built to last. I use it as my everyday bag and to carry essentials on hikes. It’s the perfect companion!

    Just bought another

    Posted by Jonah S. on Apr 18th 2019

    I just bought my second one of these. My first one is holding up against heavy use no problem, so I’m not replacing it. I just love this bag so much that I thought I’d buy another in which to carry work items. This bag has held up against rain, snow, thorns, and all manner of other things when in the woods and looks great while at it.

    I bought the Mail Bag about 8 months ago, and I could not be more pleased. I don't go on many day hikes or overnights. However, I go on a lot of "wanders" - just go into nature and see where it takes you. I LOVE to journal and read on these wanders, which necessitated a bag. I really like the concept of Frost River - to create bags that your grandkids will fight over. This is definitely one of those bags. I've had it in pour rain. I've had it in snow. I took it on a kayak outing on a lake. There's nowhere this bag won't go. Surprisingly roomy (enough to hold a 5x8 journal, a book, some pens, rocks that my kids tell me are important, etc).

    Something Very Useful

    Posted by Tom on Dec 30th 2017

    After using this canvas bag for a short while, I am very favorably impressed with the product. The canvas is light, but tightly woven, which will result in very good service. The canvas is water repellent but breathable, perfect to take along to hold a few things on a long walk. It is vastly better than the nylon things most commonly available and really doesn't have a sticky feel or smell. I have made a nice little car kit which I assemble all necessary things I might need when I go somewhere in the car. This kit is on standby for when ever I go somewhere in the car. Adding a few things and it is ready for a walk. I wish they made it in the same dimensions as the large shell bag and I would buy a second one. With the excellent construction, this bag will be with me for many years.
