Vintage Messenger Bag

Frost River Carrier Review from David Hoole on Vimeo.

This full featured shoulder bag brings the messenger bag to a higher level. Borrowing elements from the Vintage pack, a pair of premium leather flapstraps go up and over the main flap of the bag. They hook into a solid brass post and offer speed with security like no other Frost River design. The 2” shoulder strap is attached directly to the bag and comes with a leather shoulder pad. The strap is adjustable and long enough to be worn across most chests. Built from waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass at our shop in Duluth, Minnesota. Available in Heritage Black as well as Field Tan, the Vintage Messengers let you choose which environment to blend in with, and which you'd like to carry with you. In Heritage Black, it's professional, sleek and understated. Heritage Black features all the same high quality materials as Field Tan, leather from Red Wing, MN, waxed canvas and solid brass hardware. It's built right from the start in Duluth, MN in solid black and antiqued solid brass. Here's a pack you'll enjoy for decades to come.

    Excellent, Heavy Duty Messenger Bag

    Posted by Jonathan Chapman on Jul 20th 2017

    I received one of these messenger bags for Christmas 2016. I routinely destroy messenger bags as I use them to carry electronics and tools when on the road and in the field. Usually the first thing to go is the shoulder strap attachment or the bag closure. This one's solid. Additionally, the main section is divided into three sections which is nice for keeping items separated and easy to get to. The pockets on the outside of the main section are the right sizes for the small tools, folding rule, notebook, et c. that I regularly carry, and the flap cinches down tight enough to keep them from falling out, unlike most messenger bags.

    Overall, very happy, extremely rugged product, and it's survived longer than any of its predecessors.
