Classic. Simple. Enduring. Leather or waxed canvas choppers are made at Frost River in the traditional style with removable liners. The option allows quick drying and simple replacement of your insulation. The buckskin Choppers are available in three colors. The waxed canvas Choppers offer water resistance and are built from 10.10 oz. field tan canvas. The liners (available separately) are made in the USA by Fox River. They're currently available in size large, blended 50% wool, 50% acrylic. Our buckskin is locally sourced and has a durable yet supple texture. All of our buckskin comes from real, wild deer hides, so each one is a little different, making your pair one-of-a-kind. There may be some scarring in the leather, which is natural with a product that comes from the wilds of North America, and it helps make your Choppers just that much more unique, more authentic and more personal. 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 cover 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.
