Once you get pogies... you never go back. I LOVE mine. They are great from late Fall when you get those nasty 40F rainy days. The pogies keep my hands dry and therefore my hands stay warm. I have yet to find a pair of gloves that can survive real rain. Either my hands end up a sweaty mess inside fully rain proof gloves, or the gloves get soaked from the outside in. For Winter the pogies keep my hands warm and DRY! With heavy winter gloves my hands might stay warm, but they invariably lots of moisture builds up inside the gloves. Pogies are such a simple solution.

Enjoy and happy riding,!
André

+1. Sort of a fashion crime, but I was SO tired of my fingers being cold. I'm a happy convert!

mechBgon,

Glad you love yours as much as I love mine. I think they're well-made for the price. I agree that once you've gotten pogies you can never imagine riding in the winter without them.
