What to Consider Before Buying a Firewood Carrier?

Length of the Carrier

You’ll find that there are different length carriers ranging from 20 to 30 inches in length. Think about what kind of logs you usually use. If you’re stocked on 8 – 10 inches kindling for a very small fireplace or a mini chiminea[1] , then probably a shorter carrier makes more sense. Standard or bigger logs will need a longer carrier; of course, anything around 25 – 30 inches in length should be plenty. If you’re not sure what size logs you’ll be using, just go for a bigger firewood bag; the price difference is usually very minimal.

Size and Capacity

But we already talked about length? Yes, but the carrier’s size and how much firewood it can carry depends on the height and width. Large firewood carriers are great because you need fewer trips to the storage during those long evenings by the fire. You can also just use a large log carrier instead of a firewood rack and just keep the firewood inside. Large carriers are great for long sessions, but small ones are usually more convenient to carry and don’t take up a lot of space.

You can find firewood carriers made from leather, canvas, cotton, or a mixture of all of them. Which one to choose? Well, it’s honestly up to your liking. Leather is usually more expensive, has great durability, and looks fantastic. Cotton is probably the cheapest but not as durable or nice. The heavy-duty waxed canvas is an excellent option since it’s not that expensive and made to last while very easy to clean.

To make firewood log carrying easier, look for a bag that has handles along with shoulder straps to distribute weight to the upper body. Secondly, a firewood fastener is an excellent accessory, so your logs don’t slide around or fall out. Some carriers also feature a pocket to store your gloves so you won’t misplace them.

Best Firewood Carrier Reviews

Amagabeli Firewood Carrier Bag

This beautiful brown firewood carrier is 18 inches in length and 38 inches wide when unfolded. You’ll have no trouble fitting standard 16-inch logs. A very wide bag allows packing as much firewood as you can carry, while the waxed canvas is adequately secured with straps going around the carrier to avoid ripping or tearing.

The waxed canvas is water-resistant and dirt-proof, so it won’t need frequent cleaning since any liquid will just run down most of the time. However, if you want to extend the bag’s longevity, avoid leaving it outside in moisture or rain.

This firewood carrier’s only downfall is the double D ring strap to secure firewood. It’s a hassle to secure it properly, especially with gloves. Other than that, Amagabeli is a stylish one of the best firewood log carriers for its price.

Key features:

  • Good size and capacity
  • Nice brown waxed canvas
  • Water-resistant and dirt-proof
  • Cheap


  • D ring strap not practical

Bonthee’s extra-large firewood carrier is waterproof so that you can use it during any weather or with any type of wood. If the bag gets stained or soiled, the heavy-duty canvas can be easily cleaned with a brush and some soap. This is definitely one of the best firewood carriers for large loads.

Cougar Outdoor – The Ultimate Log Carrier

Cougar Outdoor company should already give it away that this log carrier will be heavy-duty and able to hold heavy loads. The 24 x 17 x 12 inches 1200 denier canvas is very sturdy and built to last. There are also double-stitched external trims around every seam to provide more robustness.

This firewood carrier isn’t made for people who want a beautiful bag to sit as a decor piece by the fireplace. The looks are pretty plain and indistinguishable. Another weakness of the bag is that it doesn’t stand well when empty, even though it’s advertised that it does.

Snitsla Carrywood – A Firewood Log Carrier

Use a comfortable shoulder strap for a more ergonomic carry or short handle if the load is lighter. If needed, you can fit even 18-inch logs into this attractive bag. The 16 oz waxed cotton canvas is durable, water and dirt resistant, but most importantly, comfortable.

Our only frustration is with the double D rings for the fastener strap; it takes too long to secure the load and sometimes just doesn’t work at all. Other than that, it’s an excellent firewood carrier that can be used for various other chores around the house or backyard.

Key features:

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I leave my firewood carrier outside?

Yes, you can; most of the firewood bags are made from robust canvas, which is water and dirt-resistant. However, leaving your carrier wet for a long time is not advised. The moisture on the canvas combined with various pieces of wood chips, leaves, and dirt will start growing mold and will ruin your carrier. As a general rule, keep your firewood carrier dry, whether it’s inside or outside.

Can I store wood in my firewood bag?

Of course! The carrier is not only to transport the kindlings but also to keep them by the fireplace. If you don’t have a convenient firewood rack[2]  nearby to nicely stack your logs, just leave it in the carrier to avoid making a mess on the floor or hearth.

How to clean my firewood carrier?

If your carrier got some mold on it from wet firewood sitting in there for a long time or it just got really dirty, you can easily clean it. If your firewood carrier is made from leather, just grab a wet cloth, add a couple of drops of dish soap and scrub the stains; just make sure to rinse with hot water and dry thoroughly so no soap residue is left.

If it’s a cloth canvas, then just grab a scrub brush, wet the canvas with some warm water, add a few drops of dish soap and scrub until the stains are gone. The harsh scrub brush usually does the trick and doesn’t damage the carrier since most of them are made from a heavy-duty waxed canvas. As always, make sure to dry the carrier before storing it away.
