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.

  • Liner: 15D Taffeta polyester
  • Insulation: 3 oz Primaloft Gold*

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.

Thank you for your recent patience while I relocated across the country to Montana! I've taken this opportunity to change the way I handle orders. Moving forward, I will no longer take backorders and only products that are in-stock will be available for purchase. This eliminates the lengthy lead times of the past and allows me to work more efficiently. The downside is that I'll often still be over capacity (I'm just one person, making everything), so many items will be "sold out."

I realize that these changes can make it difficult for you to plan, so if the item you're looking for is sold out, please refer to the calendar below for an anticipated production schedule. You may also want to sign up to be notified of availability on the product page. Please understand that the schedule may change without notice, and that some items, especially accessories, may be squeezed in during pockets of available time. If you don't see the item of interest in the calendar, that means that I haven't scheduled it yet and don't know when it might be available.
