Frost River Cliff Jacobson Signature Pack (USA)
This box style canoe pack is designed with help from outdoor writer, wilderness traveler, and Eagle Scout, Cliff Jacobson and laid out with helpful features designed to haul your gear through the lakes of canoe country or the wilds of your everyday. This is a daypack, meant to go light and fast or supplement another larger pack for a full camping rig. It serves well as a school or travel backpack, too. We build them by hand in Duluth, from a lighter weight 10.10 oz waxed canvas that we get from the same supplier as our heavier 18oz. It's a tighter weave fabric that wears tough, but carries light. You get the choice of Field Tan or Hunter Orange waxed canvas. We regularly build the Field Tan, but may have to build a Hunter Orange pack from the ground up if high visibility is on your list. The Cliff Jacobson backpack is lighter than, but similarly laid out to it's older "cousin" the Nessmuk Pack. The top flap is longer on the Cliff Jacobson Signature Pack, the inside zippered pocket is bigger, the grab handle sits by the backstraps, and the 2-in-1 side pockets are both the same on each side (the Nessmuk has two small pockets on one side and the larger on the other. Both packs share the same 2.25" cotton, pistol-belt web backstraps that connect at the bottom of the pack. Need something larger? Take a look at the Woodsman or Timber Cruiser Jr.
