Expedition Gear Made in the USA
A Directory of American Made Products
|Wintergreen Northern Wear We know what works. We have to. The outdoors is our way|
|of life. We live, 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. MADE IN USA We take great pride in
being one of the largest private employers in a small remote town where jobs are scarce but
garment making talents and pride in workmanship are in abundance. We’re one of the last
full-line outdoor clothing makers in the U.S. Our country has become a throw away society
because we can get cheap goods from overseas. Wintergreen clothing is made to last so if it
means purchasing a garment made by an American worker at a higher price, we feel this is
a good thing. Buy less, keep it longer and throw away less!
|Technical Advantage Gear – Our Expedition rated gear has been 100% tested during the|
|prototype stage in some of the coldest weather extremes that Winter can dish out on the |
Planet each year. Whether it played in the Iditarod, the Himalaya’s or Antarctica , if it was
successful with our testers then you got to see it available for sale the following season.
We offer the highest thermal R-values of insulation in our Mittens, Hats, Neck Gaiters and
Base Layers and we’ve engineered designs for plain extreme warmth and even for high
exertion activities like climbing to the summit of Mount Everest . If you are looking for
pure performance in your extreme cold weather gear, that will handle wind chilled
temperatures exceeding -100F below zero, then give us a try. We don’t guess at the
temperature range ratings, rather we base them on actual temperatures that our users have
punished them in! We offer the best asset value for your investment and our gear does the
finest job in eliminating the effects of convective and conductive heat loss. We’re 100%
made in Wisconsin – USA !
