Hi, I’m Ashley
My name is Ashley Hughes-Hailstone. My husband Evan and I have 3 children; Emerson, Laughlin and Alaina!
“We were first introduced to MBW while visiting my best friends’ cottage in Bracebridge Ontario. Her and her children all had the most adorable sweaters, and we were soon hooked as well”!
What are you and your family’s favourite things to do outdoors?
My family has a seasonal trailer in Marmora, ON. We love to spend our days at the beach, and our nights around the campfire cozy in our Muskoka Bear Wear gear.
Where are some of your favourite spots to visit up north?
The kids and I love to visit my friend’s family cottage in Bracebridge, and now in Gravenhurst. The kids especially enjoy going to Santa’s Village!
What is your favourite Muskoka Bear wear item?
It is so hard to pick our favourite item, but it has to be the cozy hoodies, as everyone in the family has 3 or more, including my husband. The boys love their Cottage Comfy Pants, and Alaina loves her Paw Shorts as well.
What is your favourite photo of you or your famjam in Muskoka Bear Wear?
My favourite photo of my family in MBW is the one where we all ended up in sweaters at school one day, not even planned!

Hello! My name is Jess, I am an avid line dancer, aspiring artist, nature lover and adventure seeker. I was born in the busy city but raised up north, so it’s safe to say my roots have grown deep within Muskoka!
Where are some of your favourite places to visit in Muskoka?
Our gorgeous provincial parks have always been my favourite places to visit in Muskoka. I love visiting the small towns as well but there is no better place than when I’m out discovering what the surrounding landscapes have to offer.
“There are many things to do while outdoors, but what really makes me happy, relaxed and truly feel grounded is when I’m out camping, kayaking and hiking. There’s something therapeutic about breathing in fresh northern air and getting lost in nature.”
You like to travel a lot – where is the furthest place you’ve been in your Muskoka Bear Wear?
I’ve taken Bear Wear with me from the great Canadian Rockies to the vast Everglades of Florida. I once even wore my classic black quarter-zip while taking a photo with the one and only, Johnny Cash, in Nashville Tennessee. I want to be comfortable when I travel, that’s why Bear Wear always travels with me.
What’s on your adventure bucket list?
My future adventure bucket list would include the exploration of Iceland, Italy and Australia. A closer destination that I hope to cross off the list sooner would be Yellowstone National Park. I would love to wake up early in the morning, throw on my favourite Muskoka Bear Wear sweater and venture out on a tour to witness a pack of wolves run across the plains of Lumar Valley.
