Pogies - Rain

$17.95
What are pogies?

Pogies help keep the cold bite of wind and rain off your hands while allowing easy access to your trekking poles or other items. Great for pairing with a light glove for springtime showers.

Keeping your hands perfectly dry is not the intention of our Pogies, and if you've tried rain mitts before, you've probably found that they wet out after awhile anyway. Instead, our pogies offer a simple, lightweight solution to prevent heat loss from fresh rain wicking away your body heat. The open bottoms keep clamminess down in warmer weather. They also do a good job of blocking wind, and we often find ourselves using them solely as wind mitts on brisk days. The open bottoms allow you to easily use your trekking poles or to quickly expose your hands for more intricate tasks like getting to a snack or tying a shoe.

To use, put your hand through the cinched opening. Then pull the one-handed cinch with your other hand to secure the opening around your wrist. Your trekking pole handle slips through the other opening. To expose your hands temporarily, pull the opening back over your hand.

Made in the USA from imported fabric.

Weight:
  • Small / Medium: 0.9 oz | g
  • Medium / Large: 1.0 oz | g
Material:
  • 20D SilPoly
  • Seam Sealing Note: We do not find that pogies need to be seam sealed.
What size?

Pogies are made to have a loose fit and have a lot of wiggle room in terms of sizing. Choose the size that you might typically choose for gloves, erring on the smaller side if there is question in your mind.

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: As a solo-operation, my capacity is very limited, and I can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. I only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help me to serve you better. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and makes hiring help much more feasible. I'm currently in the process of hiring, and hopefully you'll start seeing more products stay in stock a little bit longer soon.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
