Shell Bag

(18 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.

    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

    What a quality product. Using this for squirrel and deer hunting. Amazed with the comfort and the build. Worth much more than I paid. Leather and brass really add character to the durable waxed canvas. This is a lifetime product. Thanks so much Frost River.

    Small shell bag

    Posted by Troy M on Feb 28th 2020

    Not even going to mention’s Frost River...this stuff is the best! This is a great bag but there is two things I didn't care for. One was my fault one was not. This bag is great but I now wish I had purchased the medium bag instead. Just would like a little bigger bag (excuse to buy another). What was not my fault was the length of the shoulder strap. This thing seemed really short. Now I am a bigger fella but this barely seemed long enough for my teenage daughter. Easily fixed with their extension strap, but would rather see a long strap that could be cut shorter if needed. Regardless I have a bunch of FR gear and I love it all!
