Jay Cooke Sling Pack, Front, Handcrafted in Duluth, Minnesota

Meet our new crossbody bag, the Jay Cooke Sling Pack

Named after one of Minnesota's top ten State Parks, this bag is built for those grab'n go moments when adventure is calling. Just as the suspended bridge swings over the St.Louis River, this crossbody pack is designed to swiftly sling over a shoulder and stay comfortably in place as you adventure up and down the rock gorge of the park-- or wherever the next adventure takes you.

Crossbody Design

A 2in cotton web shoulder strap makes this a comfortable pack to wear even when it's loaded down. The shoulder strap's length is adjustable and even releases with a solid brass g-hook.

External Organization

Cord and barrel at the front of the bag allows you to cinch a hat or light jacket to the pack body. To keep smaller items organized, utilize the two zippered pockets. Two lash squares at the left of the pack make this Sling Bag customizable with other Frost River add-ons.

    Sweet Sling Pack

    Posted by Bronto on Apr 3rd 2022

    I'd be surprised if you can find a bag put together better than this one. The fabric, stitching and hardware are tough and the zippers are even tougher. In fact I don't think I've ever come across zippers this mighty. I love everything about this bag as far as pockets, rugged design and sling-style. You can tell it was constructed by someone who cares. Frost River definitely understands what "Made in the U.S.A." means. Very impressive. However, be sure to heed the dimensions. I knew I was taking a chance when I ordered this pack, to use as my everyday carry bag for work. It's a tight fit for any combo of lunch, snacks, water bottle, glasses and folder, tablet or laptop. If you don't want important papers to get dog-eared or wrinkled this is not the pack for you. If Frost River made a large or medium version of this pack I'd be all over it. But sadly I'll probably return it for a messenger bag with for little more size & versatility. Again, this is a sweet sling pack. I'm pretty sure you have to pay for return-shipping. So just know it's a tight squeeze before you order.

    Jay Cooke would be proud

    Great little pack. Lots of pockets for a variety of uses. Great for a hike or to haul your daily needs to work. Extremely well constructed and designed. It is not big and is smaller than it seems in the photos. Just what I wanted. Room for your stuff, iPad, lunch, but not for an overnight camping trip.

    Although smaller than it appears in photos, this bag is built extremely well. I wanted a bag to use for work; to daily carry a bit of the wilderness spirit with me. And this bag works perfectly. My laptop fits inside, as well as the supplementary pens, chargers, and other items I need in the external pockets. And like all of the Frost River goods, it's built like a tank. Durable. I love it.
