Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply
Camillus has put some of the best materials and craftsmanship into the Les Stroud Knife Series. I really like the overall look of this Les Stroud knife–it’s a nice combination of grey, black and bright green. (You can find it when it is dark out!) More importantly, it has good weight and balance.
Most notably, the blade is made from Titanium bonded 440 stainless steel. The titanium makes this knife very strong and hard, without the brittleness you can find with other stainless steel knives. The knife is very corrosion resistant and boy can it hold an edge! It has a full tang and the sheath is reinforced nylon with a fire starter, flashlight, signalling mirror, and a ceramic sharpener. This is one “do it all” survival knife and it makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys spending time in the outdoors.
We are fielding many calls from people who are looking for Wintergreen outdoor clothing. At this point, we have two fleece jackets in red XL, a couple of XC ski jackets and windshirts. We also have some pants and a few kids’ articles and some hats and a pair of plunge mitts, but that is about it.
It is hard to replace an iconic brand like Wintergreen. It was a product of the northland made by Ely craftsmen and women with US-sourced materials. That is hard to find. Hopefully, somehow, someday they will return.
Meanwhile, we do have substitutes using the latest technology and materials. We have men’s and women’s fleece by companies like RAB, Mountain Hardware and Marmot. All of these companies also make shells, like the RAB Stretch Neo and Marmot Conness. We also have a really attractive Mountain Hardwear Monkey jacket that works as a nice alternative to Wintergreen’s fleece for women. We are experiencing shortages on some of these products, as folks are substituting them for the Wintergreen products and it is hard to find inventory in season. To give you an idea of how that is done, we are placing orders today for next winter, not this winter.
If you can’t find what you are looking for, we will do our best to special order whatever you need. For a small shipping fee, we can ship most anywhere.
And don’t worry–we won’t leave you out in the cold! If you can’t find a jacket or pants to keep you warm, we rent Wintergreen anorak shells, fleece and pants to use on all of your winter adventures here in northern Minnesota.
Stone Harbor is pleased to announce that we have added Surly as a vendor to our strong list of quality outdoor gear. We have recently acquired the terribly hard to get Moonlander Fat Bikes and are offering them for rental.
The Moonlander is like no other bike. Surly designed it to ride where there are no roads, no trails and no people. And in northern Minnesota, that means wet stuff, roots, rocks, pebbles, gravel, sand and many types of snow. You read that right: this bike rips it up on the snow. Which means you have a whole new way to enjoy Minnesota’s white bounty.
How can a bike go over snow? The Moonlander runs 4.8˝ tires on 100mm rims. Such a large footprint allows you to ride them at very low pressure, which (as with a snowshoe) enables unparalleled traction and float.
Of course, we couldn’t just take Surly’s word on it, so various members of our staff fought volunteered to try them out for you. They love them!
