hey all,

So I have read a bunch of posts about pogies vs gloves, and decided to get pogies, but I need some help. I need a warm pair of pogies (I will be paddling in the northwest thru the winter), and another big thing is that I need to be able to get my hand in and out of them fairly easy.

Any suggestions?

yeah...i'm in a poggie kanundrum too. my current ones are NRS...and my paddling buddies seem to look down on them...but they worked fine, till i got my full face helmet.

they are tight on the wrists...which probably make them warm, but problem is i need to use my teeth to get the last one, with the full face, i can't get to them with my teeth, without messing up my nose plugs..

so i either have 2 poggies or nose plugs....

much better to get a pair that you can get in and out of easy.

Snapdragon Hyperhands

Both my wife and I paddle with these in the winter... they are warm and relatively inexpensive... when things get really cold or it looks like there will be a lot of scouting or portaging, I'll wear a thin pair of gloves underneath...

with the black mambas i just fold the flap up and they are pretty easy to wiggle your hands in there. hella warm and usually you are trying to get water in them so your hands cool off.

Mountain Surf Creek Mitts are super easy to get on and off. I can't imagine they're as warm as the others, but my hands have always comfortable for March and April CO boating.
