On the North Shore, the Manitou River exhibits an awesome power when the ice goes out in spring. Then the flooded torrent rushes between the canyons gashed in the basalt bedrock and plummets forty feet into Lake Superior. Two outside zippered compartments plus two outside pockets with brass button closures, combined with multiple small pockets inside add up to easy organization. The leather-trimmed front flap stays shut without a buckle. Adjustable 48 inch shoulder strap.
