Shell Bag

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.

    Small shell bag

    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!

    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.
