Shell Bag

Historically, shoulder bags like these would be used to carry the tools and equipment needed to keep a black powder gun running. Now a shell bag could come in handy for anyone looking to expand their carrying capacity a bit by having a big pocket to carry essentials at their fingertips. Shell Bags could be used by hunters to carry extra ammo, or hikers as a ranging bag to keep stuff dry. It also makes a distinctive and very functional purse. They work great for disc golf discs, or add a Plano® Box and head out fishing.

    Great bag

    Posted by Joshua Taylor on Jan 1st 2020

    So I ordered the large shell bag for holding a small amount of gear and food for a hike/hunt. Very impressed with the workmanship on this bag. This thing seems very tough. Only thing I don't like is the 1" strap. I'm very broad shoulder and it digs. Luckily I do leather work so ill just make me a wider strap. This is just a personal preference. I would definitely buy again and I would recommend this bag for any outdoorsman

    Shell Bag

    Best hunting pouch anywhere. I use the large shell bag for all my hunting. Moose, deer, birds, rabbits. Everything I need for hunting anything in Northern Saskatchewan fits neatly in this bag and is secure and rugged. Thorns, branches... barbed wire ... this bag stands up to rough use. Worth every penny.

    Shell bag XL

    Posted by Riverghost on Oct 24th 2019

    Haven't had a chance to use it yet but I do have it in small and medium. I give reviews as is, not on what I'd like it to be. That being said.....this is a high quality product. Tough oiled canvas material with leather strap and closure, quality brass and all very well stitched together. Mind now that this is a simple possibles bag, haversack, satchel or man purse....what ever you call it, you get what is advertised. Main compartment with a slot pocket.....pretty simple but effective if you know what you are doing. If you are wanting more than this....well I'm sure you can find it in the Frost River catalog.

    Best Purse Ever

    Posted by Kate Hollifield on Apr 15th 2019

    The thing I fear the most when I buy a new purse is somehow messing it up right after purchase. But this bag is sturdy! I’m a mom who also works as a nanny, so I need my bag to be tough and hold everything I need. I bought the medium shell bag in Heritage Black. It’s perfect. I love the canvas and the leather strap. It’s great worn off the shoulder or crossbody. Overall, highly pleased.

    Excellent Product

    Posted by Thomas Mount on Mar 29th 2018

    I have been using my large shell bag every day for a year now. This is great design for carrying everything I need. The front slip pocket is perfect for stowing items that Iwant quick access to. Materials and craftmanship are superb. I have used Filson for years, but this shell bag is better designed than the Filson field bag. The leather strap is really nice quality and exceedingly practical. Not often I find such a nice product at a reasonable cost.

    My son gave me this as a birthday present. What a wonderful gift. I love it and especially love the leather state of Minnesota he had added to it. I love how durable it is and really love how unique the patch made it. Definitely will buy from them again.
