Kondos Outdoors was born in Ely, MN in 1980 out of a need of the outfitters to have gear that could withstand the rigors of being on trail all season long. With a roll of fabric, some thread, and the determination of crafting the best gear, began the course for the next 40 years.
Since then with our own experiences on trail and the constant input from guides and mushers, we have created a line of no-frills, but everything you need gear for mushing across the snowy tundra or venturing into the wilderness.
