Downhill, out of the ancient rocky crags of Minnesota’s North Shore, under Highway 61, and into Lake Superior, the Kadunce River carries its water to the big lake. Our Kadunce Messenger Bag also has enduring northwoods character, shares a name with a wild river, and will carry water…
There are twin side pockets on the Kadunce Messenger Bag that are sized for round 32 or 40 oz water bottles. A thermos would fit fine, so would a travel mug, and the pockets will snap closed when not needed or to secure smaller items. There’s a wide web shoulder strap that attached at the ends and is sized to wear across the body (it’s even got a leather pad for comfort and grip). There’s plenty of space inside. Enough for a daypack-sized load with pockets, a padded sleeve, and a handy quick access zip compartment on the front of the lid. The Kadunce stands up on its own so it'll stay where you leave it. Here's a waxed canvas messenger bag built right, at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota.
