We know what works. The outdoors is our way of life. We design, sew and sell our gear in Minnesota’s northern border wilderness. We began in 1985 by designing gear for our first expedition to the North Pole. Since then, we’ve explored just about every cold place on the planet, from Greenland to the Russian Arctic – all with our own gear. Serious field- testing.
We make it ourselves, we sell it ourselves. Nothing is made overseas or sold to other retailers. Rolls of fabric come in the back of our shop and finished garments go out the front. We monitor quality every step of the way.
We make our clothing with the best quality materials available. All fabrics are not created equal. As a result of our thorough testing we use only cutting-edge fabrics that perform as expected. No cheap imitations. Made in the USA. Buying cheap gear that survives only a few uses just serves to sustain a throw-away society dependent upon imported goods made by under-paid laborers. Wintergreen Northern Wear is built to last a lifetime by American workers earning sustainable wages. “Made in the USA” is more than just a label. It proudly reflects your support of quality products that support American families.
