Timber Cruiser Jr Pack

(3 reviews) Write a Review

The Timber Cruiser Jr. pack is a smaller version of the Timber Cruiser pack. It maintains the heavy duty features including padded buckskin straps, waxed canvas, leather, and solid brass hardware.

A junior version to our full sized Timber Cruiser pack. It maintains all the heavy duty features of our premium canoe packs: padded backstraps faced with buckskin attach to the pack with hand pounded harness rivets, 18oz. waxed cotton canvas throughout, all of the hardware is solid brass, and the critical flapstraps are riveted and sewn. The 2-in-1 side pockets offer handy cargo space and have a spot to slide narrow objects between the pack and pocket. Like all Frost River Packs and bags the craftsmanship is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Illustrated with a packbasket that is available separately, the 18" fits great in the junior model the 20" works for the full size Timber Cruiser.

    Perfectly durable and user-friendly

    Posted by David Beal on Jan 5th 2021

    I have owned a Timber Cruiser Jr for any years. 15+ maybe. I use it quite often for canoeing and just trips to the woods. Fishing trips to places like Alaska and the Yukon. It's my catch-all for camping trips. In between trips, it holds my bug-out equipment, which is basically our camping gear. This is a great users' pack. I love the simplicity. Stuff that should be in the side pockets is in the side pockets. I have always used it with the pack basket. This thing is bomb proof. It doesn't quite look like new anymore, but neither do I. It has never failed me and I don't think it ever will. It's also the perfect size now that I'm not as young as I once was --- you can't really overload it to the point where you genuinely struggle to lift it. I love this pack.

    Nice Day Pack

    The timber cruiser jr is a great day pack, but also packs enough gear for a small canoe pack. The padded straps cushion the load and the 2 in 1 side pockets are great for a saw, a fillet knife and other useful items! Seems built to last, and I’m sure it will. I’ll use it summer and winter.

    Best pack I’ve ever used

    Posted by BlackWater Bushcraft on Nov 13th 2018

    I have been using this pack almost everyday for the last few years and it has held up phenomenally! From canoe trips to straight up bushwhacking this pack has taken a serious beating over the years and the pack shows no wear and tear, and the Canadian Shield and Boreal Forest can be very hard on a pack! It’s a safe bet to say that this pack is going to outlast me and whoever chooses to use it beyond that! I love this pack because for me it’s the perfect size, you can travel minimalistic with this pack or you can fill it to the brim with more gear than you will ever need! It seems like a bottomless pit! 10/10 canoe/bushcraft/camping/outdoors pack
