High Falls Short-Day Pack

High Falls -short day pack No.399 by Frost River is a small pack made from field tan waxed canvas. Long and narrow, it's shaped to accommodate a water bladder. The long and lean layout works great when you just want to carry some gear in a low profile pack.

It’s a short hike up to the High Falls of the Baptism River in Tettegouche State Park. The scenery is amazing, some of the best Minnesota has to offer! Good thing you brought a snack and some water so you can stay awhile.

The High Falls -Short Day pack is a perfect go-to on a quick hike. An inside sleeve works great for a water bladder, the hose can poke out the top (thanks to twin zipper pulls) and get clipped to the handy loops on the shoulder straps. Our waxed canvas is tough, quiet, and water resistant. The pack’s shape fits a back great, you’ll forget you’re wearing it until you want what’s inside. Made at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota.

The High Falls is available in our traditional Field Tan, high visibility Hunter Orange, and our subtle and distinctive Heritage Black with antiqued hardware. All are made from the same core materials of hard-wearing waxed canvas, premium leather, sturdy cotton web and solid brass hardware. Frost River Canvas My State Buckskin Patch Info Below.

    My Favorite Daypack

    Posted by Taylor Moore on Nov 12th 2018

    This pack is a perfect grab and go for a short outing. I put my essential gear in a Frost River accessory bag and a 1L Nalgene beside it. That leaves plenty of room for extra snacks for the kids or my lunch or a light jacket. The loops are handy to lash a hatchet to as well. I like the width because it rides well between the shoulders. My 6 year old daughter loves it on hikes because “ it’s just her size”

    Perfect Small Pack

    Posted by Tony on Oct 24th 2018

    I have had the bag for two months now and could not be happier. Extremely good quality. Nice straps and heavy duty zippers. Fits very comfortable on your back. Barely know it's there. Yet big enough for water, snacks and everything you need for a day hike. Looking forward to years of good use.

    Perfect Companion

    Posted by Travis Szekely on Oct 24th 2018

    I own other Frost River products and this pack is built with the same care and quality as all of the packs and bags they offer. I used the pack most recently on hiking trip through Mammoth Cave NP. The pack carried well. I had enough room for a good size water bladder, field guides first aid kit, bug dope and a light rain jacket. Couldn’t be happier with the quality and utility. A perfect companion for a short day trip.

    My 'Go To' pack when when I run out the door

    Posted by Dave S. on Oct 24th 2018

    Bought the two-tone, glory red/tan pack in late 2016 and it has been my first "Grab Pack of Choice" whenever I leave the house. Just big enough for some needed paperwork, or a jacket plus lunch, the zippered exterior pocket will also hold a bottle of water so you can hit the ground running. Quality constructed with the added benefit of proper water repellency, this little pack is just a great car companion to keep handy for a quick hike or a long walk with the dog.

    Best Compact “Grab and Go” Pack

    Posted by Frostfan on Oct 10th 2018

    Needed a quick, small pack for a some paperwork, a jacket and a water bottle and Frost River provided the answer with this compact pack.

    The High Falls is my first choice, “companion” pack taken whenever I run out the door. Works equally well for a quick hike, business meetings or walking the dog.
