Corsair mentioned a BWCA Patch (I assume he meant a BWCA.com Patch). That brought to mind patches I've seen at Outfitters. I remember seeing them at both Rockwood and VNO. Patches are not front of mind for me and I don't remember seeing them until a couple of years ago. Still, I imagine that they have probably been around for a long time.

My first thought was that they were meant for kids to commemorate their trip, though I bet some adults get them too. I don't recall seeing many on the trail.

So do many people here get them? Do you display them? Where; on your tripping clothes or some sort of display at home or in some other way?

I remember patches being a big deal when I was a Boy Scout commemorating things like Jamborees attended, etc.

I just kinda thought this was a different sorta topic.

I recall at the World Scout Jamboree in 1983 in Calgary that patch trading was a big activity at the event. Scouts from all over the world where trading patches. I was amazed by the value some of them held.

Nowadays you bring the patch into a Tattoo shop.

They tattoo it on to some part of your body.

A patch? If I stick one on my arm will it take away the effects of not being in the BWCA? Will I be able to stop logging in from work? Will my wife stop complaining about how much time I spend thinking about the BWCA? I think I'm against them.

Actually I have never seen any collectible types for the BWCA. Then again I've never looked for them either.

Someone included a BWCA patch inside the Lost In The Wild book that was being passed around....pretty cool patch actually.

I've got a VNO patch on the used pack I bought from them. I think it looks pretty cool. Wouldn't mind adding others from the different B-dub connections I've made, kind of like the decals for the knoo.

There are several patches available from the BW. Some are generic, some specific to the gunflint trail or other areas. I purchase them to commemorate the trips for the students I take. They, like Boy Scouts, usually love them.

Where have you gotten them from eagle? I will have to look harder when I'm in Ely in June. I would like to collect them and sew to my pack. So a variety would be cool. Also a BWCA.com patch would be cool Bannock

I have purchased them at outfittes and other stores. The Trading Post at Grand Marais, HJ Outfitters, several stores in Ely. Some are very nice.

Patches were a fun aspect of my scouting days many years ago , so probably a bit of nostalgia.
Beemer01, I agree I need to be more weight conscious, but my problem is food not patches.

I met a couple of elderly gentlemen on a portage on Knife Lake in 2004. They had BWCA patches (many) on their tired old Duluth packs. Looked like they had been collecting them for a few years, it was kinda cool...
As mentioned earlier many of the outfitters and stores carry them. CBO carries quite a few. Some of them are real works of art with incredible color and detail....I guess if you had some on your pack it would be easier to identify! Just a thought...

Trading patches is very popular within the fire services. If you're a firefighter and you visit another station, you'd better have a patch with you to trade. With that patch, you're instantly welcomed and most likely invited for dinner.

I haven't seen many patches in and around the BWCA, but then again I haven't really looked. Sticking with one outfitter doesn't help either unless they (Lynn) gets a new version each year. That would be kind of neat, actually, a different patch each year with the year stitched on there.

Stumbled on this thread through a Google search. I have a number of patches from BWCA outfitters, Minnesota state parks, and national parks and I've often thought about having them sewn on one or more of my portage packs (but haven't yet). Does anyone have any pictures of their own packs with patches sewn on?

A while back someone on this site posted a link to a patch website with camping/outdoors stuff. There are some pretty good ones that would make for fun "merit" badges after a canoe trip Patches

Here is our 5 year old "pillows" pack. We pick up a patch whenever we camp at a State Park. We have missed a few due to the State Park being out of them, but most are accounted for. If we Stay at the same Park twice and they don't have a "different" patch, he can pick out a pin. We did get a Gunflint Trail patch when we stayed at Gunflint Pines, but I haven't seen any Boundary Waters ones yet. We don't have any outfitters patches being we don't use them, (Have to "Earn" them) but it would be neat if they would carry patches for each entry point. pillow's little brother "pillows 2" has been earning them too, but we are waiting for him to get a little older before he gets his own pack.

Hey Adam!
Just a thought....
You could sell BWCA.com patches, and then have the smaller "stripes" for each entry point. you would probably sell more of them than stickers. (Not that I don't like my sticker...)

Skilletmary and I bought a patch last August from Canadian Border Outfitters to commemorate our first BWCA trip. She put it in the pocket of her cargo pants and we haven't seen it since.

I thought about starting to collect them but decided against it for now. Maybe if I sold my Minnesota State Park coffee mug collection I started in the 1980's but lost interest in I will...or the old fishing lures, coins, matchbooks, duck stamps, rocks, Edward Abbey books, National Geographics, etc, etc, etc.

I do like looking at the patches when I'm at the various outfitters or gift shops. Some are very detailed and of high quality. The designs are good too.

I like Trygve's idea about a BWCA.com tattoo or even a brand like on cattle. I think any member who reaches 20,000 post should be obligated to get one.

I've thought about looking for patches for the BWCA when I am up there but don't remember until after I am home. Would like to put some on the packs. I do buy patches at the state parks I stay at. I've got 5 more parks to get to before I can say I have been to all of MN's parks. I have sewn onto my car camping tent the patches for the parks I have actually stayed at. Used to get a lot of patches in the BSA also. In the military patches were a big trading item with people in a foreign military. Got to spend a couple weeks on a German destroyer once and got a lot of cool ones there. So, somewhere there is a box in the garage with a lot of old patches (BSA and military) that will probably just rot or get thrown out by some great-grandchild that will have no idea where they all came from.

I made a canoe bag for everyone on our trip, just a duck cloth fabric bag with a nice zipper and straps that fit under the canoe seat. It holds a plastic box of fishing lures and a water bottle. I sewed a USA flag patch and a Maryland flag patch on them. Then I saw the thread for the "Demerit Patch" web site and started collecting patches for the individual bags and every body loved them. I have spent the last three months sewing patches of all kinds on the bags. My wife thinks I am nuts! But the Kids love them. We have started collecting flag patches from every country or state we have fished. Plus we have added special interest patches, music, sports ect. It has been fun and the bags are cool looking. We got some BWCA patches in Ely and every body got a new Minnesota flag patch.

I had a Duluth Pack patch and a Gunflint Trail patch I sewed onto one of my old #3 DP's. Been looking and cannot find a pic that shows them, though. Sold that and an old #4 to someone here on BWCAW.COM after I picked up a new #4. I would most certainly buy a "Flying Moose" and proudly display it on my newest #4! TW

When I was a wee one and my parents took me into the boundary waters we went out of an outfitter on the end of the gunflint...dont remember which one. Anyways they had an outfitter patch and them about a 3" patch that was a canoe paddle. Every trip we got another paddle to go with the main outfitter patch. As a kid I thought it was kinda cool. I wonder if my old windbreaker with the patches is still around somewhere...hmmm
fitgers1  
08/03/2011 03:24PM
I would think the packs would stick around longer than the life jackets. Kids outgrow them fairly quick. I know life jackets stick around a while though. At the lake cabin we have many PFD's and several are from the 70's when I was a kid. I think a pack or on a tent is the best place to put them. I know many would be concerned about disrupting the integrity of a tent wall so I say sew them on the pack. Or a rain fly for a tent.

My favorite place for patches is on an old, wool blanket, the kind you can find at the Army-Navy stores. I think fleece might work, too, but won't be as durable in the long term.

A blanket is a bit more to carry (if you have a light sleeping bag), but it's great to have on those cool evenings, and makes a fine picnic pad.

How many of you would really like to have some BWCA.COM patches? If there is enough interest, and with Adam's permission, I would be willing to take the project on. Obviously, the larger the order, the lower the price. One site I looked at, an order of 100 was only ten dollars more than an order of 50. Let's get the tally started!!

I believe adam will have to write a letter to the company making the patches giving his approval for it to be legal. Either that or adam can order them himself and sell them on a really great website. I have a friend that has a logo company here in town and ran into this issue before wanting a custom hat with the name of the company I work for on it. (they do patches as well;)

In any case I'll take 1.

What would the patch look like? Would it just be BWCA.com or are you talking the flying moose? I am sure we are interested. I think I even know where my patch is from the Canadian Outfitters. If I started collecting them I would sew them on a light weight blanket. If one had a lot of them it would get heavy after awhile.

I'm still sitting on this idea, waiting for a reply from Adam. I emailed him to get his ok, but have not heard back. My thought was to use one of the stickers as the design, the cost would be my cost plus S&H with an additional amount added to support the website. I was thinking about 3.5 inch round patch. Will try to contact Adam again to get this moving forward.

For those of you who attach these patches to your packs, do you sew them on yourself or take them with your pack to a tailor/alterations place and have them do it? If the latter (which is likely what I'll be doing) any idea what they charge per patch?

Sew them myself. I've sewn a lot of patches on myself over the years.
Pretty easy to do. Thread the needle, stick the needle in, pull the needle through. Personally, I get more satisfaction out of doing it myself then paying someone several bucks to do it.

Most dry cleaners will sew on a patch for a buck or two apiece. Several of the families in my Cub Scout pack bring their shirts to me now as I have a sewing machine and am always happy to do it for them. It saves them cash and it helps me have correctly uniformed Scouts. Win-win!

Since I got laid off in September, I have a bunch of company shirts in my closet. I've been looking for patches to put on them, to cover the embroidered company information. If these get made and will cover the area (pocket width, preferably with a flat bottom edge), I'll be in for more than three.

I hope you might reconsider. As I stated earlier in this topic, I could forsee patches being an item being offered for donations to the site rather than just an outright purchase. Two sizes could be available; small for shirts and hats and such, and a larger patch for jackets and packs and whetever. Say 3" and 6". Put in a bulk order, say 500 each. I'd be willing to give a donation to the site to defray some of the cost. I think this is a winner here and you'll be ordering a second batch before you know it. What do you all think?

I've had patches made for scout events before, often well below that $5.00/each figure. Of course, it depends on the size and number of colors overall. It would likely be worth checking prices through a number of places.

I also know the DE with the local Scout district, and I know he gets patches printed a few times each year, so he likely knows where to get the on the cheap.

The patches are inching forward. I have settled on a couple companies that will make a preproduction sample for Adam's approval. Size, cost, and the number to be produced are still to be determined. I'm working with Adam on that.

quote bobbwca: "quote Savage Voyageur: "quote woodsandwater: "I saw a BWCA.com patch somewhere on this site. If that is the one being offered for sale, I'll buy three of them.

Thank you!"

That was one of the patches made for Amok, I have one that I got from the wing weekend auction. I will sew it onto my pack. "

I had the Amok patches made for the auction, if Adam gets patches made, I would be interested in a few."

Thanks, I ended up with one. They are nice!

As I'm reading these posts three responses came to mind 1."Patches? We don't need no stinking patches" 2. "Gee, I can wear one as an eye-patch!" Come on, we're kinda like sailors. Besides how cool is an eye patch!! 3.I want 3 of them!!

Before I get beat up by someone here who has no sense of humor; the eye patch comment was just for fun! Actually my gramma has a glass eye from some kids throwing rocks when she was young! So please don't go off on a tangent about eye patches not really being cool to some people!

Whoever you settle on, find out if they will save the artwork/setup/config information for re-orders. It should save some trouble (and possibly some setup fees) if/when more stock is needed.

Thanks for clearing that up. I had thoughts of Red Ryder bb guns.

Yes, any progress? With being off the site recently for ~2 weeks I was afraid I may have missed out.....

Sorry the updates have been so slow in coming. The artwork is in Adam's hands at the moment. As soon as he gets back from China he will finalize the design so they can be ordered. When the order is placed, production should take 7-10 days. Be patient, they are getting closer. As soon as Adam and I work out the final details, I will post the info here.

I submitted a patch design to the selection committee but they rejected it. It was uncluttered but expressive: the words NEARLY EVERYTHING overlaid by a circle with a line thru it from 10:00 to 4:00. Too subtle, I guess.
