Pogies - Insulated

$60.00

Notes:
-The 4 & 6 oz options will not be restocked in the near future.
-8 oz options will open up to backordering as the current inventory sells out (expected lead time is < 3 weeks).

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 (check out the video tab to see the pogies in action).

Primaloft Gold insulation is lined with silky soft taffeta on the inside to keep your hands warm. The outer, waterproof/breathable shell resists moisture without becoming clammy.

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. To get the cinch cord out of the way, pass your hand through the cord to situate it around your wrist.


Material:

  • Shell:
     -2.5 Layer WPB w/ 10D ripstop nylon face
     -Hydrostatic Head: >9000mm
     -MVTR (breathability): >27,000 g/m2/24 hr
     -black color
  • Liner:
     -10D Micro grip ripstop nylon
     -olive drab color
  • Insulation:
     -Primaloft Gold

Weight (per pair):

  • 4 oz/yd2 Primaloft Gold:
  • Small: 2.7 oz | 77g
  • 6 oz/yd2 Primaloft Gold:
  • Small: 3.3 oz | 94g
  • Large: 3.7 oz | 105g
  • 8 oz/yd2 Primaloft Gold:
  • Small: 3.5 oz | 99g
  • Medium: 3.7 oz | 105g
  • Large: 3.9 oz | 110g

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.
  • For cross country skiing, you may find larger sizes to provide more freedom of movement and better performance.

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: Our capacity is very limited, and we can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. We 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 us to grow and to serve you better in the long term. 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 opens up hiring opportunities.


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.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

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