Please see the important note at the bottom of the product description.

What are pogies?

An alternative to mittens, these pogies are like warm quilts for your hands. Magnetic 'zippers' on the bottoms of the pogies automatically snap shut, allowing you to use your trekking poles or easily free your hands for intricate tasks.

The liner is a silky soft taffeta and the shell is a 2.5 layer waterproof breathable fabric to keep out moisture without clamminess. Primaloft Gold insulation keeps in the heat and is available in an 'overstuffed' option with double the insulation.

To use, put your hand through the cinched opening. Pull the one-handed cinch with your other hand to secure the opening around your wrist. Your trekking pole handle slips through the bottom opening.

NOTES:

  • Please note that the blue liner is limited in quantity and won't be restocked anytime soon.
  • It appears that I was shipped the wrong version of Primaloft (I suspect Primaloft Silver rather than Gold, but I have not confirmed this yet). Pogies with the blue liner are not affected. Pogies with the dark olive liner are made with the suspected Primaloft Silver. This insulation does not provide as much loft as the intended insulation, so for the time being, I'm making them with an extra layer of insulation at no additional charge (2 layers for the standard, and 3 layers for the overstuffed). The end result is an even warmer and loftier pogie. Currently, pogies with the dark olive liner are made-to-order with a lead time of 1-week. Weights with the additional layer are being added to the specifications as they become available.

Weight (Blue liner):

  • Standard option:
  • Small: 2.9 oz | 83g
  • Medium: 3.1 oz | 87g
  • Large: 3.2 oz | 91g
  • Overstuffed option:
  • Small: 3.6 oz | 102g
  • Medium: 3.8 oz | 108g
  • Large: 4.1 oz | 116g
  • Weight is per pair

Weight (Dark olive liner):

  • Standard option:
  • Small: 3.3 oz | 94g
  • Medium: 3.5 oz | 99g
  • Large: 3.6 oz | 102g
  • Overstuffed option:
  • Small: 4.0 oz | 113g
  • Medium: 4.2 oz | 119g
  • Large: 4.5 oz | 128g
  • Weight is per pair

Material:

  • Shell: 2.5 Layer WPB w/ 10D ripstop nylon face
  • Blue Liner: 15D Taffeta polyester
  • Dark Olive Liner: 10D Micro grip ripstop nylon
  • Insulation: 3 oz Primaloft Gold*
    *2 Layers for 'overstuffed'

Sizing info:

Measure the length of your hand from the base of your palm to the tip of your longest finger to find your size.

  • Small: 6.25" - 7.25" (16 cm - 18 cm)
  • Medium: 7.25" - 8" (1 cm - 20 cm)
  • Large: over 8" (over 20 cm)

There is quite a bit of flexibility with sizing and a few things to consider when choosing your size:

  • If you're in between sizes, I generally recommend sizing down.
  • If you expect to wear more than a light to midweight liner underneath, AND you are towards the upper end of your size range, then you may wish to go up a size.
  • If the pogies are too big for you, they will still work, but they are more likely to be 'floppy' and cumbersome. The magnetic closure also becomes more difficult to open.
  • If the pogies are too small for you, then they may start to feel restricting and the closure is more likely to open unintentionally.
  • If the pogies are too small for you, then you may be more likely to feel the edge of the magnetic strip which can feel abrasive to bare skin to some people.
