    Moose Mitt

    has anyone tried the Moose Mitts? I just ordered a pair forgetting that I have a mirror installed on the end of handlebar. Can the Moose Mitts be modified or a hole cut in it so i can go ahead and keep my morrow in tact? the helmet mirror is out. dont seem to be able to get use to it
    thanks

    I think it's just a nylon bag, so yeah, cut a hole for your mirror. How far north are you that you're worrying about pogies already?

    You'll see when you get them that this may not be any kind of issue. The mirror might just stick out of the open part of the Moose Mitt.

    And I wouldn't cut them. They're not just nylon bags.

    They're Cordura [nylon] with a fleece liner [polyester]. Fine, a nylon and polyester bag. Last winter I made some for drop bars out of a PU-coated ripstop nylon stuff sack and Windstopper fleece that look almost identical to their drop bar version. Worked like a charm, especially after I cut small slits in them so I could strap them internally to the drops.

    Hey, I make a mean batch of chocolate chip cookies, and I can whip-stitch with the best of 'em.

    westsam: The Moose Mitts come in two varieties
    Flat bar:

    Road bar:

    The flat bar version will require you to cut a hole in the end to mount a mirror, the prototype drop bar version will not.

    Speaking as a guy with a hole in his Moose Mitts (from scraping a wall), the problem is that the fleece gets wet whenever it rains. Got something for that?
