Northern Pacific Mittens - Buckskin

(15 reviews) Write a Review

The Northern Pacific Mittens in Black are soft, durable, and sure to last for years to come. This item is crafted in Duluth, MN by artisans at Frost River.

Keep your hands happy by giving your fingers company in a pair of our Frost River mitts.

The smaller cousin to our Great Northern Choppers, the Northern Pacific Mittens are available in waxed canvas or buckskin leather. Both are lined with arctic polar fleece to keep all your hands happy. Elastic back helps keep out snow and cold. Buckskin styles are...well, stylish. What beats leather? 

Our buckskin has a beautiful, supple texture that makes these mitts extra cozy. See the photos to check out our available colors. All of our buckskin comes from real, wild deer hides, so each one is a little different and may show evidence of life lived in the wilds of North America.

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.

If you have any questions, would like to try a pair on for yourself, or need know more about our handmade mittens, don't hesitate to give us a call or stop by the shop in Duluth's Lincoln Park Craft District!

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.

    Very warm and comfortable for pond hockey with the kids, shoveling snow and other outdoor activities. These definitely run large - I was between a medium and large on the size chart and the medium was too big. I returned the mediums and a small fits perfectly. Customer service was wonderful!

    gorgeous mitts

    i did a ton of online shopping for warm mittens this winter. i have really crazy cold hands. these mittens are the best. there is room inside for me to use two liners (i know, ridiculous!) and still have movement. the leather is so supple. the details are lovely. i wore them snowshoeing this morning and i was able to grip my poles with ease and they were waterproof. best of all? made in the USA and supporting a strong local business. thank you, frost river. i'm more than satisfied!

    Nice Mits

    Run large, and are pricey. But on a cold day they feel darn good. Warmer than gloves, but of course with less dexterity. I got the green leather to match a green plaid wool jacket. Sylin' and warm.

    These are an absolutely beautiful pair of choppers. The craftsmanship is fantastic, they seem like they'll hold up, and are doing a great job of keeping my hands warm on the ice.

    Smitten Mitten

    Posted by Brian Varsoke on Feb 1st 2021

    I ordered two pair of these for both of my daughters stockings. Leaving a guy to shop for a woman doesn’t always yield the best results. I ordered the wrong size. On both. However, Frost River came through and saved me in a major way and exchanged both pair no questions asked! BAM – DONE! We just spent the last weekend hiking as a family and my daughters absolutely LOVE their mittens. Which of course, makes for one very happy dad. One could say they are smitten with their mittens. Now, with Valentines day quickly approaching, I’ve pulled the trigger on a third pair for my true valentine of 29 years. And through the magic of pre-fitting I’m guaranteed the right size because I already know she wants her own pair! What’s better, you’ve offered them in a limited edition red buckskin! Dang like a bang! Thanks for making an awesome product in Duluth MN, thanks for great customer service and thanks for taking care of my girls!
