With the added pressure of restricting travel and living the quarantine life, has there ever been a greater need to get outside and soak up some of that precious Vitamin D?
There are foods and supplements that can help us with Vitamin D, but the primary source comes directly from our skin when it is exposed to sunlight – hence why some refer to Vitamin D as the ‘Sunshine Vitamin’. It assists with regulating the absorption of calcium & phosphorus, assists our immune system, the development of bones and teeth, as well as improving our resistance against certain diseases. Vitamin D has also been linked to regulating our mood and helping to ward off depression and anxiety.
While we encourage you to continue practicing your social distancing and staying safe, that should not stop you from getting outside into your backyard, hitting up a trail or even going for a nice drive with the windows down.
Breathe in that fresh air.
Feel the sun against your skin as it washes away any of the stress and anxiety you might be carrying.
Remember that we are right there with you every step of the way. Whether you are rocking a comfy Quarter-Zip, a cozy Cabin Hoody or keeping it cool lounging in our brand new Lilac with White T-Shirt, Muskoka Bear Wear has your back!
Now hold that camera phone up and lets see those first beautiful selfies of Spring & Summer!

Dogs may not be our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
There’s no wonder why they’re called “man’s best friend”… they love to snuggle us when we’re feeling down, they’re happy to finish whatever is left on our plate, they eagerly await our return home from just about anywhere and boy oh boy do they just love to be part of any adventure we bring them on. From trips to the cottage, hikes in the wilderness, lazy days on the dock, kayak & canoe trips, or sitting around the campfire and watching the stars – they just want to be part of the fun with you.
Pretty much any Muskoka tradition you can think of, your furry, four-legged best friend is happy to be part of it. That is what inspired us to make our Muskoka Bear Wear Doggie Bandanas – available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Proudly Canadian-made, it lets you and your dog show off your love for all things comfy. But more than that, with the sale of every bandana, we donate $5 to the Ontario SPCA & Humane Society and Muskoka Animal Centre. So, whether your best friend is a Miniature Poodle or a Mastiff, we have a bandana just for them and that way you can feel good knowing you’re doing good, while looking good.
Now let us ooouuu and aaahhh together while we look back at some of our favourite Bear Wear doggie photos! If you have a doggie photo that you would like to share with us, be sure to send them in or post them to one of our social channels.

Just remember… #StayHome #StayHealthy and #StayCozy
For some, the fight against covid-19 has meant time away from their jobs and the normal day-to-day, while for others, some continue their fight directly on the front lines. But there’s also a third category during these challenging times… those working from home; caught in this strange in-between space where one moment your Zoom-calling your colleagues and the next you’re walking around in your housecoat and slippers.
Well, you aren’t alone – Muskoka Bear Wear is here to help you keep it comfy while you work from home!
Business on top and cozy on the bottom. Go ahead… schedule and conduct all the FaceTime, Zoom & Skype meetings you need. Your boss or co-workers only really need to see you from the waist up, right? Keep it profesh on top with a button down, a tie, maybe even a blazer. Then slip into a comfy pair of Fleece Paw Shorts or Men’s Cottage Comfy Pants and enjoy the soft, comfy bottoms – your colleagues will never know!
You went for it. You probably thought to yourself ‘just a little off the top’… ‘maybe just a bit here’… ‘maybe another snip there’… and the next thing you know you look like an early 90’s Andre Agassi or a 2007 Britney Spears meltdown. We’ll give you an ‘A’ for effort and applaud your handiwork. Now you’re wondering what to do to cover that mop until the quarantine is over and you can rush to your local salon. Solution. Rock a Ladies Cabin Hoody or Men’s Sherpa Hoody and hide that melon at all costs! No one needs to know what’s going on under that hood!
Want to show off your love for Muskoka while making all those extra Zoom calls? We got you. Download our Muskoka Background Image for Zoom and let people know where your heart truly is: in Muskoka.
Keep it comfy & cozy while you work at home!
