Our Ladies Sherpa Hoody – New This Season!

We released new bright colours this season in our Ladies Sherpa Hoody including a growing favourite, the Ivory Ladies Sherpa Hoody! Already added this cottage staple to your wardrobe and wondering what you can style it with? We have three signature ways to rock our cottage essentials!

With a Pair of Patterned Leggings

Who said comfy can’t be fun? Pair your favourite cottage-comfy hoody with a patterned pair of tights to add even more excitement to your outfit! Pictured here is the Ladies Sherpa Hoody in Ivory paired with army green animal printed leggings and faux-leather sandals! This is the perfect outfit for a morning trip to the coffee shop! Swap out the patterned leggings for black tights if you’re going for a more simple look!

This is a great outfit for a trip to the market, a quick dart to the grocery store or a walk about town! Switch it up with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a more relaxed fit!

Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale!

Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale!

Join us for our very first VIRTUAL CRANBERRY FESTIVAL SALE! That’s right, with the unfortunate cancellation of the annual event this year in Bala, we wanted to keep the tradition alive with our own Online Shopping Sale!

Fall in Muskoka is probably best known for two things. Firstly, the stunning display of Fall colours as the leaves change draws visitors from all over Ontario, across the country and even from around the world. Whether viewing the colours while hiking, cycling or boating, the breath-taking views are some of the best in the world. Secondly, Fall in Muskoka is known for the Bala Cranberry Festival – one of our favourite events each year! Offering visitors the opportunity to literally ‘take the plunge’ and walk waist-deep in the cranberry marsh, the event also serves up a wide variety of cranberry culinary creations – both sweet & savory – along with live music, games, shopping and more.

As amazing as the event itself is, it is actually much more than that. Despite being hosted within a small town with a population around 700, the event has drawn over half a million visitors since its inaugural year in 1984. The event has generated over $500,000 in funds raised that have been dispersed as community funding & scholarships; has featured over 125 local musicians; has supported hundreds of local community groups and non-profit associations; and has even been included as one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals & Event.

Traditionally, we’d be loading up the van and gearing up for an exciting weekend at the Cranberry Festival, but unfortunately the organizers of the event had to make the difficult, albeit socially responsible decision to cancel the event this year due to Covid-19. With that said, we want to keep that tradition alive and show our love for the Cranberry Season by launching our first-ever VIRTUAL CRANBERRY FESTIVAL SALE!

Here are the details

Starts: Friday, October 16th at 12:01 AM (ET)
Closes: Sunday, October 18th at 11:59 PM (ET)

Items Available:

Ladies Quarter Zip
Heather Burgundy & Dark Heather Purple

Ladies Camp Hoody
Heather Burgundy & Dark Heather Purple

Youth Cabin Hoody
Algonquin Red with Charcoal Plaid and Black with Pink Plaid

In addition to hosting our Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale, we also want to spread the word about a fundraising initiative that has been launched by the organizers of the Cranberry Festival in order to raise funds for next year’s event. They have created a 2020 Collector’s Edition Button to commemorate the ‘festival that never was’.

The buttons are available for a $5 donation and can be purchased through the Cranberry Festival website here.

We hope you’re able to take advantage of our Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale event and we look forward to hopefully seeing you in-person at next year’s event!

3 Ways to Beat the Heat with Muskoka Bear Wear this Summer!

3 Ways to Beat the Heat with Muskoka Bear Wear this Summer!

Summer sure has had it’s share of heat and as we enter the second half, we’re serving up some tips on how to stay cool and beat that heat with Muskoka Bear Wear!

#1 Jump in the Lake – Go Swimming!

Whether it’s a pool, a pond or one of the many gorgeous, pristine lakes throughout Muskoka or the rest of Ontario, go jump in!! Make a splash! Few things will cool you off quicker than that first plunge into the water. If you’re sweltering in the heat, don’t wade in, don’t tip your toes in, just shout ‘cowabunga’ and jump right in!

#2 You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream!

Cone, cup, bowl… it doesn’t really matter. If you need to cool off fast, the best and most delicious thing you can do is grab some ice cream or frozen yogurt. With so many flavours and options there has got to be a frozen delight for you. Classic, creamy soft-serve vanilla, banana splits, root beer floats, rainbow sorbet, moose tracks, cookie dough, chopped fruit, nuts, whipped cream, chocolate sauce…. if the heat ails you, ice cream is your salve! Have another scoop, we won’t tell anyone!

And if you’re looking for a great local place to get some ice cream we recommend checking out Melody’s Muskoka Ice Cream in Gravenhurst, Ontario! They just introduced homemade ice cream pies. Need we say more? Learn more by checking out Week 18 in our #MBWShoutouts here.

#3 Grab Some of our Sale of the Week Items!

Whether you’re chilling on the patio, hanging on the beach or any of about ten thousand other fun things this summer, Muskoka Bear Wear is right there with you and your family every paw print of the way!

Muskoka Proud

Muskoka Proud

Whether you love to be on the water, by the water or in the water, Muskoka Bear Wear is there for all of your Muskoka adventures. And while this year may look a little different for those unable to visit or vacation with us this Summer, know that as long as you have some comfy Muskoka Bear Wear on hand, you’ll always have a piece of Muskoka with you.

Muskoka Bear Wear ON The Water!

Paddling out on a SUP Board at 6:00 AM for a sunrise or having the breeze blow through your hair while out for a rip in the family boat can sometimes be a bit chilly. For moments like these, we recommend rocking a Camp Hoody (Ladies, Mens). Outside Muskoka, either of these Muskoka Bear Wear tops are perfect for an evening stroll or a bonfire.

Muskoka Bear Wear BY The Water!

Sipping a nice beverage, reading a great book and laying out on the dock to catch some sun is certainly one of our favourite ways to spend an afternoon in Muskoka. For times like these, we recommend the Ladies Fleece Paw Shorts or Ladies Flannel Boxers. Of course, these are great for just about anything you’ll get up to at home this Summer. From garden cleanup, to water balloon fights and BBQ’ing, these paw print shorts will help you show your Muskoka pride no matter where you are!

Muskoka Bear Wear IN The Water!?

Okay, okay, okay… well technically not IN the water… persay… but those fish sure are and there is nothing comfier than the Mens Sherpa Hoody or Ladies Cabin Hoody for when it’s time to reel one in. Away from Muskoka? That’s okay! Our high-quality, Canadian-made Hoodies are good for just about anything.

We mean, unless you’re opposed to being cozy or looking good? It looks like entire families continue to make Muskoka Bear Wear a part of their family traditions, and for this we say thank you.
