Pogies - Insulated

$60.00

This item is currently made-to-order. Please allow up to one week for the construction of your pogies.

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. 3 oz Primaloft Gold insulation keeps in the heat and is available in 1, 2, or 3 layers. While there's no definitive answer to how warm these are, I generally recommend the 2 or 3 layer option for those who often have cold hands and 1 or 2 layers for those who run warmer. Each layer provides about 0.6" (1.5cm) of loft when unrestricted (multiple layers will be increasingly restricted in the pogies and will not fully loft everywhere).

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
  • Liner:
     -10D Micro grip ripstop nylon
     -olive drab
  • Insulation:
     -Primaloft Gold
     -3 oz/yd2 per layer

Weight (per pair):

  • 1 Layer:
  • Small*: 2.9 oz | 83g
  • Medium*: 3.1 oz | 87g
  • Large*: 3.3 oz | 94g
  • 2 Layer:
  • Small: 3.3 oz | 94g
  • Medium: 3.5 oz | 99g
  • Large: 3.7 oz | 105g
  • 3 Layer:
  • Small: 4.0 oz | 113g
  • Medium: 4.2 oz | 119g
  • Large: 4.5 oz | 128g
  • *Estimate; awaiting verification.

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.
