45NrthDraugenklaw Pogies ( Drop Bar )(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
If you're looking for a lighter set of pogies, these are the ones to get. They're not adequate for very cold temperatures for two reasons: They don't insulate all that well, and they are a little tight, so you can't use heavy gloves with them with a lot of comfort. I have used big, battery-heated gloves and stuffed my hands inside, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Those aren't negatives, just aspects. If the temperatures are 35-40F (lower if you have better circulation than I apparently have), these are perfect because your hands won't overheat. Much below freezing, and I prefer Bar Mitts. The Draugenklaws are much better constructed than the Bar Mitts, though, which are basically a couple slabs of neoprene slapped together. The Draugenklaws don't slip down the bar, either, which the Bar Mitts do constantly. They keep their shape and don't move.
