Summit Expedition Pack
A rugged rucksack for summit expeditions or simply sauntering about, the Summit Expedition Pack has comfy padded shoulder straps, big pockets, a roomy main compartment and lots of upgrades.
Versatility makes this pack a winner. Made by hand in Duluth, MN and guaranteed for life.Specifications
The Summit series of packs are based on the traditional knapsack. It’s a classic and enduring design that works. Our Summit Expedition goes a step further with upgraded pockets, external lash points, premium materials, and USA construction.
Summit Packs are simple, classic, and yet refined knapsacks. It’s been said “It’s all you need!” Just toss stuff inside, throw your shoulders through the straps and go. No need to meticulously pack contents (though it’s better to pack carefully) the Summit’s won’t mind.
The Summit Expedition takes the same simple charm of our original Summit Pack and adds 2-in-1 side pockets. They’ll carry a water bottle or thermos with ease and offer additional storage between the pack body and pocket. There’s also a gusseted front zip pocket to stow small items. Lash squares are solidly stitched on the top lid to secure items to the exterior of the pack. The whole pack is made from our 18oz waxed canvas, the leather straps are hearty and reliable, all the hardware is solid brass. It’s all you need and a little extra. Made at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota.
Upgrade your straps! Enhance your pack with our premium buckskin padded shoulder straps. Cut from the same burly bridle leather and built with the same care, attention to detail and cushy closed-cell foam as in our canoe and bushcraft packs, this is an upgrade in both style and function. Please note that upgrading to the buckskin straps may require us to spend extra time building your pack. All of our buckskin comes from real, wild deer hides, so each one is a little different and may show scars & evidence of life lived in the wilds of North America. They’ll most definitely be worth the wait!
Frost River Canvas My State Buckskin Patches: You’re proud of where you’re from, so show it on your new Frost River Reliable Softgoods with one of our custom patches. You can read more about the Canvas My State program here, but the gist is this: when placing an order for certain Frost River gear, you have the option of adding a deerhide buckskin patch. We’ve created 22 iconic regional outlines to choose from. Each patch is made and sewn right in our shop from locally-sourced, natural deerhide buckskin leather. The leather may have scars or other natural blemishes from being a deer in the wild, and it’s the same rugged buckskin that we use on our heavy duty mittens and canoe packs — it’s the good stuff. If we’ve got the bag in stock, we’ll sew your patch on within a couple business days, or if we’re out of stock and need to build your bag from scratch we’ll let you know it’ll take just a little longer. Canvas My State patches are now sold separately as well, for if you’ve got a trusty old bag you’d like to sew yer own onto.
Can’t find your state? Vote for the next round of patches on social media by sharing a photo of your favorite spot, tagging it with #CanvasMyState and telling us what makes your region special (bonus if you include a piece of Frost River gear in the photo!). We’ll share selected entries and your vote could help get your state, province, lake or region on the waxed canvas map!
