Our Favorite Minnesota Company Products for Summer 2017

Ah yes it's summer in Minnesota the time of year where everyone tries to pack as many activities into 12 weeks as humanly possible and every weekend is double & triple booked with happenings.  It doesn't hurt to have some great Minnesota products while you take in that summer sun.

That's why we've compiled a list of our favorite Minnesota company products we love and wanted to share with you (of course it wouldn't be complete without one of our BWCA Caps - See #3 Below). ​


This design is painted on Sanborn's Voyageur Heritage Paddle. With an elegantly traditional blade shape these are graceful in and out of the water. They’re perfect for lazy turns around the lake or for gracing the wall of your cabin. Each is a laminated combination of western red cedar, aspen and black walnut.

Roll-Top Scout with Wings from Duluth Pack

 An ideal companion for bikers and commuters alike, the bag offers the option of rolling the bag down to accommodate a small load or higher to pack everything you might need for a weekend. The pack rides snug against the back; meaning no shifting around on your ride to work, and no accidentally bumping strangers on the subway.  This bag is sure to be your go-to everyday backpack.

Our BWCA Wave Cap

Of course our favorite Minnesota Product list wouldn't be complete without including our BWCA Waves Cap.

No better way to represent the BWCA.  An essential part of every true Minnesotan's collection.

1858 Series Pint Glasses from Northern Glasses

Dirty Shirt: A Boundary Waters Memoir

If you need a great read while paddling the Boundary Waters this summer - This is it.

Jim Landwehr and his brothers pursue their love of the outdoors by tackling some of the country's most remote terrain, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. While encountering crazed loons, widow-making portages, and temperamental automobiles, they also discover more about each other and their long deceased father. In recent years, with a desire to instill their love of the area into their own children, they include them in their voyages, and the legacy continues. Their exploits are woven throughout with humor, emotion, and warmth.

Portager Stand-Up Paddle Board from Paddle North

No better way to see all 10,000+ lakes than to paddle them.  Yes all 10,000 of them.
