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.

    As nature would have it, the day my Choppers arrived in the mail it was snowing! Pulled them out of the box and put them to work right there and then. These Choppers are rugged in the palm where you need it. The waxed canvas is rugged and very durable. Easy on and off design. Use them for shoveling, kick sledding and snow blowing. Roomy so if you need extra layers you got the room. Will be getting another pair because my better half is already borrowing mine.

    These mittins are warm. You can hold onto a frozen metal handle bar on a snow blower, cleaning your driveway, and still have warm finger tips. Also, the quality is “perfection”.
