Great Northern Choppers

(20 reviews) Write a Review

The Great Northern Choppers are made of water resistant waxed canvas, durable leather, and solid brass hardware in Duluth, MN.

Serious mitts for serious weather. We make 'em warm, tall, and tough to give you a fighting chance against winter. Waxed canvas sheds slush and arctic polar fleece lining keeps you warm. The gauntlet length protects wrists and seals your sleeves. Burly buckskin leather palms and hearty waxed canvas will hold up to shovel handles and winter work, plus these choppers'll pop right off with a flick on a run to the tip-up. "Fish On!" 

Frost River mittens and choppers are sized to be roomy -- just right for frigid Minnesota winters. Take a look at the sizing chart in the image gallery to see which size of our mitts will fit you best.

The Frost River Guarantee:

These mitts and choppers are tough. But if you wear ‘em like they’re work gloves, expect that they will eventually wear out. We guarantee all our reliable softgoods to hold together, that the hardware will do its job, but don’t mistake that for a claim they’ll last forever. We stand behind our work and take pride in making good stuff. However, if you use anything made from canvas and leather long enough and hard enough, you’ll need to eventually repair it, and sometimes replace it. When that time comes, we hope you choose to replace it with another Frost River item.

What’s the guarantee on mittens? We’ll cover that the seams will hold, the elastic will stay in place, and on the Great Northern Choppers the brass clasp will last and work as long as the mitts hold together. Other than that, repairs for holes, rope-tows chewing through, or dogs discovering the deliciousness of your mitts etc. would fall under the “repair at a reasonable rate” clause if they're still repairable.

Thank you in advance for your interest, understanding, and support.


832W-XL – Extra Large, 832W-L – Large, 832W-M – Medium, 832W-S – Small


10.10 oz. waxed canvas, premium buckskin, 300g polar fleece lining, snap hook and o-ring.

    These are the finest gloves I have ever tried. I have never tried mittens. I was always told that mittens are warmer than gloves. And they sure are! What a fantastic product! I always try to purchase products hand made in the USA. Please keep produci

    Great Northern Choppers

    It's not too cold yet here in Canada, but we know that it is coming and these choppers are the ideal product to protect the hands when the snow needs shoveling and the icy winds start hitting this area. Great design, fantastic warmth.

    heavy duty and warm

    My dad got me these as a Christmas gift about 6-7 years ago. These mittens indestructible. I use them for guiding the winch cable into my jeep and they held up just fine! I also do normal things like shoveling snow and walking my dog in them. I cannot write how warm they are!! These are worth every cent!

    Warm Dry Hands!!!!!

    Posted by David Moore on Jan 10th 2020

    I live in Sitka, Alaska and plow my 1/4 mile, 200 foot elevation change road with my ATV. My previous ATV had heated grips, not this one and my hands have been cold for 2 years - until these Choppers arrived. Plowed over 20 times now with warm dry hands. Thumbs were a little stiff at first, but broke in after a few uses. These are worth the $$$.

    I gave these as gifts to two "hard to shop for" men in my life and they both loved them. Great choppers! Also are amazing for hitting the slopes.

    Choppers are put to the test!

    Posted by A. Brown on Dec 30th 2019

    My husband received the choppers for Christmas and has already used them alot! With a foot of new snow the choppers were put to the test:he has ridden the snowmobile, blown lots of snow, played outside and used the sturdy hook to hang them to dry. Thank you!
