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.

    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

    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.

    My go-to field bag. From hunting to bushcrafting, the large shell bag suits my needs perfectly. Durable and wears extremely well... built for years of hard use.
