We know, we know, it feels like winter just quit, but it is never too early to start preparing for the greatest season!
Note: As of June 24th, our longest travel trip of 2020 is already fully booked, so don’t hesitate to contact us or register!
There are a couple spots left for our summer moccasin workshop at the Canadian Canoe Museum on June 8th. Don’t miss this opportunity! For more information and to register follow the link to the Museum’s Website.
Thank you SO much for such an amazing winter. We have over 13 feet of snow fall this winter and without any significant thawing that means that we still have snow in the dark corners of the land.
We have spent the last month bringing in our firewood for next year and we’re already getting excited for what’s to come for the 2020 season.
Come back often and sign up for our newsletter because it won’t be long before our schedule is live!
The time has come where we put on our snowshoes and vanish for three weeks in the great northern landscapes of the mighty Missinaibi River. We are travelling by foot, self-supported for 160 kilometres (100 miles) down the river towards the small town of Mattice. This means- the store is shut down until we get back. If you do not hear from us, this is why!
Thank you all SO much for your support this season- what a fantastic season it was. We will see you all when we get back! If you would like to follow our journey head to our Facebook or Instagram Page for all our updates.
Enjoy the rest of your winter everyone!
We are currently out on our Life on the Trapline course and have been non-stop since Christmas. We hope you have all been able to get out and enjoy this extreme winter we’re having. It has been a wild ride thus far and we want to thank all of you who have been patient with slow response times as we are focusing on our expeditions.
Up next is our biggest guided trip ever and it is down the historic Missinaibi River. We will be gone for three weeks on the trail with 10 intrepid explorer’s snowshoeing 160 km down the steepest section of the river.

Thank you so much for all of your continued support!
We are into the swing of our guiding season now, and as a result we are slower communicating and shipping orders. Our next admin day to prepare orders and answer emails will be Jan 18th. Thank you for your patience!
Our DIY Sale will come to an end on Dec 31st as we prepare to transition into our expedition season.
On that same note, please be aware that shipping and communication speeds will be slower during our busy trip season. DIY kits, stoves, toboggans and other non-custom orders should continue to ship quite quickly, but new mitten and moccasin kits will not be filled until the spring.
Thank you so much for your support this pre-season, and wishing you a cold, snowy and adventurous winter!
We have continued to have an incredible response to our specialized clothing and equipment this year, and for that we’re very thankful! Unfortunately because of that response, our hand-crafted mittens and moccasins are now subject to lengthy delays. As of December 3rd, we are now targeting shipping new moccasin and mittens orders between Christmas and New years. That’s the stick.
But we’re still happy to dangle the carrot for you as well! If you’re willing to make them yourself we’re shipping our DIY moccasin and mitten kits without delay, and we’re still offering them at a sale price while we try to work through our backlog of finished items.
Thank you for your patience!
It is finally happening! Thank you all for your continued support and patience as we film and release our instructional videos piece by piece. This is Part 1 of 2 for the canvas uppers that accompany our winter moccasins making DIY kits.
We don’t like sales here. We want your purchases to be well considered and not rushed. And to that end we try to offer the best products and best price we can all year-round.
BUT, we’re also feeling the need to direct traffic a little bit here in our busiest season. Our seamstresses are sewing anoraks, tanks and top bags at 100% capacity. Kielyn has a growing list of custom moccasins and mittens she needs to make. She asked me last night after completing a beautiful pair of beaver mittens: “can’t someone else do it!?”. And that, my friend, is where you come in :)
Until the end of November, in an effort to encourage you to do it yourself(!), we’ve got all of our DIY kits on sale, plus some non-sewn items thrown in: HDPE toboggans and our Kni-Co stoves. As an added bonus we’ve also been able to permanently lower our price on deer and moose hides to $7 / sq ft!
Check out all the sale items in the Featured Products section.
[NOTE: We’re still happy to sell moccasins, mittens and anoraks. Current wait time on these items is one or two weeks. We will update this if necessary.]
