"I bought these and the matching liner as a gift for my husband after complaining that he couldn’t find warm gloves. The black buckskin is soft and beautiful and fairly elegant for a chopper. He was borderline on the sizing, and I ended up I having to exchange an XL for a L. Customer service was AMAZING - so friendly and fast! The size large is generous enough for him to wear a few different types of liners underneath, so they are definitely versatile as well. I would definitely buy from this company again." - Kate (Customer submitted review from January 2021)
Great Northern Choppers
These are some big mittens. The waxed canvas exterior of these hearty choppers help keep the elements out while keeping heat in. The solid brass hardware that keeps these mittens together adds an elegant, strong tone to the fashionable mitts. Lined with arctic fleece, these mittens were built to survive in the coldest of northern Minnesota winters.
"Such truly AMAZING WORKMANSHIP! I want to wear these all year long just to wave at people! If only FROST RIVER would make a size big enough to sleep in, just say’n!" - Michael (customer submitted review August 2021)
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.
