Classic. Simple. Enduring. Leather or waxed canvas choppers are made at Frost River in the traditional style with removable liners. (liners available separately)
Waxed Canvas


These traditional style waxed canvas choppers with the removable chopper liners option allows quick drying and simple replacement of your insulation. 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.

    Raw Reliability

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.

Quality product

Scott Rehmann

Great quality and look! Size does run large. Order 1 size smaller than normal

Julie Gilpatrick
Pennsylvania Choppers

I purchased as a gift. Loved the quality and craftsmanship of the Pennsylvania Choppers Waxed Canvas Mittens. Especially thankful, for the sales clerk contacting me, and making me aware that the Pennsylvania Choppers Mittens run larger than standard brand mittens, so I changed the size from Extra Large to the Large, very glad I did, they are a perfect fit!

PA Choppers

Luv em. Exactly what I was looking for

Allen Mcgranahan
Seem very well made.

These mittens seem like they will be adequate for working around the farm. They are only shells, you must have a liner in them. I use Army surplus wool glove liners in mine. That way I can take the mitten shells off and work on something with just the gloves.

I normally wear a large sized glove but ordered the medium mitten. I’m glad I did, they seem to run large.
