If you're looking for the most versatile, warmest, most fully featured pogies available you've found them. Developed over a 5 year period with input from Mike Curiak from years of successive self supported trips on the Iditarod trail and dialed in from use by many veterans of Alaska Ultra Sport and Arrowhead 130 events.
These Pogies are made with warmth and functionality for riding extended periods and days at sub zero temps. The shape of the mitt are asymetrically cut, they follow your arm's downward bend and match the relaxed position of high sweep flat bars. The tops are cut longer than the bottoms to overlap slightly preventing snow from entering and enbles the pogie to be closed with the bivy clip.
The included bar end attachments internally fix the mitt to the ends of the bars and allow for quick tool-free removal while preventing the pogies from sagging when loaded up on rough terrain. A foam plug on the bars stops drafts from entering at the cable exit. A large gusseted pocket on each side hangs below your hands providing quick access to head / neck layers, headlamps, chemical heat packs, food etc.
The removable liners attach with velcro and made from top quality Polartec 300 series sherling/velour. They feature plastic arching to keep the material off the tops of your hands. All seams finished and overlocked. With the liner removed the temperature range climbs out of the negative and into the teen's. The wrist gasket is made from 2 layers of Polartec Wind-Pro fleece too keep those nasty tail winds at bay as you cross the last frozen lake of the day.
Yes, you deserve them.
