Summit Boulder Jct.

(10 reviews) Write a Review

Summit Boulder Jct. by Frost River shares the same pack body as the Summit Pack then adds a buckled front pocket, a bottom zip compartment, and cinch compression cord along the height of the pack.

Compression is the key to the Boulder Junction Pack. It’s a fairly tall pack that holds a lot and really benefits from the cinched sides that the brass rings and laced cord provide. We got valuable input from the adventurers at Camp Manito-wish in Boulder Junction Wisconsin that helped transform our versatile Summit Pack into a capable and adaptable back pack that will work equally well with small, light loads, and big, heavy, high volume, loads. The zippered compartment at the bottom adds capacity and allows wet or dirty gear its own space. Twin zipper slides keep contents, like a rain jacket, ready at a moment’s notice. There’s a sleeve inside, at the back of the pack, able to handle a laptop, a water bladder, or whatever other flat stuff you want to put back there. The buckled pocket on the front aids organization and provides another spot to stash necessities. Waxed canvas keeps the weather out and will last for years. The padded backstraps provide comfort, and the brass ring attachment system supports the pack and provides independent movement between back and pack.

The Summit Boulder Jct. is made of waxed canvas with solid brass hardware, and great leather in Duluth, Minnesota, at Frost River. It’s built to last and aimed to please. Thanks to Walter and the great staff and campers of Camp Manito-wish!!!

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!

    Seems there’s no way to really prepare for that initial sensation you’re going to experience when you first unbox something like this from Frost River. The amazing quality, attention to detail, stunning beauty, and just some kind of shear rugged elegance simply gonna blow you away!

    Purchased this pack to carry clothes for long weekend Jeep trips. It's a little smaller than I envisioned doesn't fit everything I would like in it. But it is an outstanding bag that works great for day trips. I find it to be very comfortable and easy to wear on all day hikes.

    Excellent mid-size backpack. Beautiful, solid construction. I'll have to keep an eye on the leather that connects the shoulder straps to the top side of the pack, as it appears a bit narrow for the weight it will carry. No problems yet, though. Aside from that one slight detail (again, it has not caused a problem so far) I couldn't be happier. Great job, Frost River. I'd buy from you again.

    10 outta 10

    My absolute favorite pack. I have a lot of high end bags and this one just makes sense. Can tighten down a bit for a day bag or expand for a weekend in the woods. The exterior pouch is perfect for things like gloves, headlamps, cordage and other thinks you may want fast access to. The bottom pouch hasn’t had much use yet for me but there are plenty of things that would ride nice in there like tarps or space blankets. If you are a wool blanket kinda person, you may wanna add the bedroll straps to your order. I have a queen size blanket that will take up most of the pack so I do need to strap that on the outside. Axes, saws and clothing fit just fine in the side straps. Overall the coolest, best looking and very traditional pack is perfect for me. I get a lot of comments. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Frost River.

    First pack I have bought from Frost Fiver and all of the reviews are not exaggerating the quality. This pack is large enough to fit everything I could think of and I still have a little bit of room left. I would have liked to seen bed roll lashings on the bottom however, i'm sure Frost River would add them if requested. Overall a great pack and I will be purchasing from them again!
