Shell Bag

(22 reviews) Write a Review

The Shell Bag by Frost River is a versatile shoulder bag that can be a functional purse, hiking bag, or hunting accessory.

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.

    Correct style and well made.

    I use this bag for my muzzleloading shotgun equipment. It is precisely the style and size that I was looking for. The quality of construction is excellent.

    Large shell bag

    Posted by M.H. Owens on Nov 8th 2021

    I had wanted one of these bags for sometime to carry small items on walks in the woods and finally pulled the trigger. It is an outstanding piece of kit. Do not be afraid to get one. Large works for me but the extra large could even be better.

    Perfect for wing shooters!

    I love this bag! It’s the perfect size for shotgun hunters and should literally last 3 lifetimes. It’s truly a wonderful bag. I use mine for doves and ducks and it’s such a great size with classic style. Far superior craftsmanship over all the ones companies flood the marked with in other big name sporting good stores. If you’re looking for the perfect bag to go along with your classic shotgun look no further!

    This is a very well designed and USA-made product, at a very reasonable price. I have used mine as an every day carry bag when I'm out of town. I also use it frequently for trail walking and opportunistic fishing along the trails. (It easily carries 2 or 3 Plano 3500 or 3600 tackle boxes plus a reel; Fisherman will know what that means.) I love this bag. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

    Shell Bag - Literally

    Posted by Grant on Jan 9th 2021

    I purchased this bag to carry my shotgun shells during a round of sporting clays. It works great and the medium size holds the required 100 rounds with some room to spare. The only reason this isn’t 5 stars is the strap is a little short for me. I understand this is common for me being 6’4” but there are other bags sold with 60” straps and this one would benefit from having one. I may make my own leather strap in a longer length to remedy this. TLDR: If you think you want this bag, buy it.

    I have been looking for the right bag for a long time to use as a black powder bag and a possible bag. I like that its canvas like a haversack but has leather in the key areas like a mountain man bag without the high cost. I really like that you can secure the outer flap so if it gets snagged on a tree it wont dump your supplies.

    Love the bag! I grew up in Duluth ( moved now) so it’s nice to have a part of the place with me now. I feel I can stash anything in it. Was trying to decide on the small or medium, so glad I went with the medium! It’s the perfect size- not too big an
