The leaves are changing color and you can tell when you head outside that fall is here and that means winter isn't too far off. All of the new fall and winter equipment is arriving in our stores and on our online shopping platform. There are a lot of new and exciting skis, snowshoes, fatbikes and clothing to check out!
These reliable rain/muck boots are perfect for the Upper Peninsula "ugly" season! They keep your feet comfortable, dry and odor-free for work and play. The performance ankle deck boot is the perfect boot for any on the water athlete looking for protection with slip-on-and-go styling. This boot is constructed with hand-layed rubber, therefore it's not a commercial grade boot.
Over 50 years ago, a boot arrived in Alaska, as RUGGED AND REAL as the people who live and work there. Like Alaska's people, those boots did their job no matter what the conditions. The XTRATUF boots they wear prove a RELIABLE PARTNER through thick and thin, keeping multiple generations safe, dry, and moving forward, one sure step at a time. Built for Alaska, perfect for the Upper Peninsula weather.

Borealis Crestone Fat Bikes
Is it too early to think about snow biking? No, no, and NO! We just received our shipment of fat bikes from Borealis and we are anticipating a shortage of bikes this winter. Our beautiful U.P. winters can last up to five months, so why stop riding for half the year? We may be biased but we think the U.P. has some of the best snowbiking trails in the country!
Our employees favorite trails are the Noquemanon SBT in Marquette and Swedetown's groomed singletrack in Calumet. With great snow and perfectly groomed trails they are the best winter singletrack in the Midwest!
These bikes turn the U.P. into a 12 month biking location, so check them out at the link below or drop by to see these Fat bikes from Borealis in person!

Patagonia Snap T
The pullover that made fleece famous, the Patagonia Snap T! Patagonia’s Snap-T has a long and storied heritage and has remained a true classic since its 1985 introduction, featuring immediately recognizable features and design aesthetics that include the yoke, pocket shape and contrasting trims. The Snap-T was first conceived as a technical fleece in 1985. In the early ‘80s, everyone wore wool to stay warm in the mountains, but Yvon Chouinard found it lacking. Wanting something at least as warm, but lighter in weight and quicker to dry, he and his design team began work on the first Snap-T pullover. Worn as an outer layer in the fall, or layered under a shell in the winter, the Snap T is a cozy staple in any Yooper's closet. Hiking Sugarloaf with friends or touring the farmer’s market downtown? The Snap T will slide on for convenient comfort and warmth. The soft fleece interior insulates while the flat seams and knit face layer smoothly under a technical shell. Hands down this is historically our number one selling Patagonia piece and an all time favorite holiday gift!!
