There might not be anything more Minnesotan than a quality pair of chopper mittens. That is why we collaborated with Owatonna Minnesota’s Uber Glove Company to create our NTCo Choppers!
Ethically made out of local wild deer hide to shed rain water and snow, we’ve combined a thick, locally tanned pair of saddle choppers with removable wool liners to keep your hands warm from the cold winter wind. There’s a reason why these have become a classic: They keep your hands warm even when they’re wet, and swap out easy for quick drying and long days on the trail. Our Choppers have stayed true to the original design -- perfect for gripping onto your toboggan sleigh as you barrel downhill or as you shovel snow outside on your driveway on a mild winter day.

The Luxury Wooden Toboggan is modeled after our original cargo Traditional Toboggans. These originals have been thoroughly tested through decades of use in the harsh Canadian North. By extending these traditional principles, we created the highest quality downhill toboggan by design, construction, materials, and beauty. It has to be to have our brand. You won't find another toboggan with a story and quality like this.
Carefully building these toboggans for downhill sledding, our Craftsman laminates every wooden toboggan crosspiece in order to withstand decades of repeated twisting. The gradual initial curl allows our downhill sled to ride higher, rather than plow into snowdrifts and in powdery conditions. We have learned from generations of craftsmen and have continued to perfect a natural bending process that allows us to use thicker boards. Constructing toboggans of red oak also provides a beautiful and durable grain perfect for winter snow sleds.
