The modern messenger bag presents an option to a backpack “slung” a over a shoulder. We build the Carrier Brief in three versions, each offers functional styling combined with waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware, all are crafted by hand at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota.
The Premium Carrier offers a padded sleeve, leather shoulder pad, a snap closure, and extra leather on the main flap. The Carrier Messenger has a large zippered slip pocket and is a great starting price point. The Carrier Bike Messenger Bag has a waistbelt to stay where it belongs during bicycle travel. Consider a Vintage Messenger for extra style points. All are simple, reliable, and a little hip (cause that’s where you wear them)… there’s a Frost River Carrier Brief Messenger Bag to help keep you moving forward no matter how you choose to travel.
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!
