Summit Pack

(14 reviews) Write a Review

This rucksack is the size of a five gallon bucket and can hold lots of gear. The interior has a pocket for added organization.

An expertly crafted rucksack to wear on your back and haul the stuff that needs to be carried. A backpack with padded waxed canvas shoulder straps attached to a solid brass ring–what more do you need (or want)? It's simple to like-- just toss stuff inside, throw it on your back and roll. It's carry-on compliant, and about the size of a five gallon bucket with a flat spot for your back. Waxed canvas, great leather, double reinforced bottom, solid brass hardware, guaranteed for life–enough said.

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 Patch Info Below.

    So far on appearance, I love the rugged look and feel. But it to use on an upcoming Fly Fishing trip, use to use a ice fishing whicker pack and was uncomfortable, will rate again in a couple of weeks, but for now, looks like it will be great and something that will last my lifetime!

    Impressed with the old-school look, feel, simplicity and functionality. Love the pack for everyday use as well as those annoying loose items that can litter an otherwise neatly packed canoe. Five stars.

    This is a tremendous pack; larger volume than you probably think. It is a quite generous daypack, for when you must cary a lot of gear. It will be very handy on any canoe trip. You can easily fit your stuff for a 3-4 day trip. And you can carry it on without any trouble. With the small size internal basket, I may use on the el Camino de Santiago next year. Very nice straps. 40 years ago I had a very similar pack (known as the Wilderness Experience "Kletter sack") that up 'til now was my lifetime favorite pack. Like many nylon packs, it's internal waterproof layer eventually corroded and crumbled away to nothing. (Still happens with waterproof nylon bags.). Won't happen with the FR Summit. If you get one, you'll love it.

    Sturdy and comfortable. Workmanship is flawless. Feel proud to carry a bag made in Duluth.

    Durable and No Frills

    I purchased this backpack to go with the Pack Basket which I also ordered, but this pack can also be used on it's own. The thick straps are comfortable and the waxed canvas is resistant to the elements. I am very pleased with the craftsmanship and overall quality of the pack.
