Does anyone use Moose Mitts for really cold weather riding? Are they useful?Jul 6, 2018 at 4:14 pm #3545551

I used these on my motorcycle in sub-freezing weather. I think I still have them somewhere in the garage… but Joyce has stalled my motorcycle restoration project :-(
On a motorcycle, one is traveling much faster, and the rider is not generating any body heat like on a bicycle. I found the heavy traditional mitts too bulky and they interfered with my ability to operate the motorcycle handlebar controls. These things kept my hands warm and it was easy to operate the controls. Also they were 100% waterproof and did not breathe. Of course on a motorcycle, with saddlebags, storing the mitts and their weight wasn’t an issue, nor was breathability. Not shown in the picture are the handlebar mirrors (see picture below)
I bring this up because the Moose Mitts probably wouldn’t fit over my touring bike’s butterfly handlebars
I think the Moose Mitts are just something you need to try and see if they work for you.Jul 7, 2018 at 3:44 am #3545730

I have a Revelate Pogie and Barr Mitts. Both work in the cold, although recently acquired and I don’t have much use yet.
