Zippy Tote

(3 reviews) Write a Review

The Zippy Tote by Frost River is a cross between luggage, tote, and briefcase. This unique piece comes in two sizes and is made of premium materials including waxed canvas, leather, and solid brass hardware.

Add part waxed canvas luggage, part tote bag, and maybe a little bit of briefcase and you have a Frost River Zippy Tote. Built in two sizes, all have a zip closure across the top, a substantial web shoulder strap, and rolled leather handles. There's one main compartment inside and a pocket on each end. The small size could work great for daily carry, the large can certainly be put into service for light overnights and weekends. Either would make a great airline carry on bag.

    Zippy Tote

    Posted by Frost River Fan on Feb 10th 2021

    Great workmanship, great design and solid construction. Great to have the leather handles and the shoulder strap as well as the zipper on top. Nice to have water bottle/beverage pockets in each side. Wonderful work bag. Boundary Waters meets the office!

    The Zippy Tote is EXCELLENT

    Posted by Taylor Christiansen on Jun 26th 2019

    The Zippy Tote is useful for a number of duties. Everything from light grocery shopping to an overnight get-away is easier with this burly bag by your side, or slung across your chest. It’s substantial materials and craftsmanship—full grain cowhide leather and heavy waxed canvas bound together with solid brass—make it a rugged gem. Speaking from experience about the SMALL model, its size and integrity can accommodate a basket of groceries, or several coffee table books, whatever the need be! I have an older “premium” bag, the different between it and the current offering being a leather bottom. As attractive as the leather is, I use Frost River’s double-layered waxed canvas bags as well (everyday), and they’re just as lovely and strongly built for whatever you throw into them! This is my favorite Frost River Tote. It serves me fine as a hefty work bag/brief case from time to time too :)

    Excellent bag

    This bag is exactly what I was looking for. Quality construction and heavy materials. I expect this bag to last for a long time. It will probably outlast me! Very pleased with this product. Also, I like it because it is made in the United States.
