made in Canada #4 Muskoka Bear Wear

Our family was so excited to discover Muskoka Bear Wear Clothing Co. in Muskoka this summer. On an overcast day we dropped by the Port Carling shop and ending up spending a fortune! Everybody in the whole famn damily ended being outfitted in Canadian Made Bear wear.

Zip Jacket
They've got 5 locations in the Muskoka area and have an on-line store too. If you want the hilariously funny personalized shirts though, you've got to make the trek north. It's totally worth the trip!
They carry t-shirts, yoga and track pants, several styles of hoodies, a long sleeve Men's T and some pieces for the kiddies and babies too. They are manufactured right here in Canada, right here in the GTA.

Both the girls got a pair of the "Original Paw Pants" they now have a paw print firmly planted on each cheek! with an draw cord waist and elastic at the ankles, they're 80/20 poly cotton AND THEY ARE LONG! A very important feature in our family! I can also attest to the fact that they wash beautifully! Shannon and I are now the proud owners of the zip jacket. It's cut really well, reminds me of the the long lean cut of Bench hoodies. I grabbed a pair of their yoga pants, they have a Lululemon feel to the cut but they are fleecy and Canadian made. Bruce and Olivia made off with a couple of t-shirts that are PERFECT for them! Bruce also grabbed a long sleeve T and I made off with a Muskoka Wear V-neck T.
