Moose Mitts Super HiVis Standard Version In Hunter Orange

20 Jan

A few weeks ago I published a review of the Trails Edge Moose Mitts For Road Bikes—they are bike pogies for road bikes that will help keep your hands warm on winter rides. Today I’d like to tell you about another product from Trails Edge, the Moose Mitts Super HiVis Standard Version for mountain bikes.

Most winter cyclists are already familiar with Moose Mitts or similar products (sometimes called bar mitts, gators, or pogies). For those of your who are new to winter cycling, Moose Mitts are best described as large mittens that fit over your handlebars so you can slip your gloved hands into them and keep your hands warm. Moose Mitts are made of thick 1000 denier Cordura, a sturdy and abrasion resistant material, and are lined on the inside with heavy fleece. The outside is coated with a windproof and waterproof membrane.

On the inside of the Moose Mitts you will find a small internal pocket where you can put chemical hand warmers or use them as a storage area for your energy bars (they will stay warmer this way). One other neat feature of Moose Mitts is the Velcro closure on the bottom of the mitts that allow you to close the mitts and keep the heat in if you stop to take a photograph or “nature break.”

The Super HiVis Moose Mitts are made from incredibly bright flourescent Hunter Orange Cordura and they have twice as much reflective material as standard Moose Mitts. Some Fat Bike riders are fortunate enough to be able to ride on groomed snowmobile trails which makes for easier cycling. The downside of groomed trails is that a snowmobile running along at 30 MPH can easily overlook a cyclist, and in a snowmobile versus bicycle crash the snowmobile will always win. These HiVis mitts can be seen a long way off, even at night, and could possible save your life.

Moose Mitts are hand-made in the U.S.A., but they are only manufactured during the winter months, so if you want a pair you need to order them by mid-February at the latest. The Super HiVis version of Moose Mitts sells for $90. If you don’t need the HiVis version you can buy Moose Mitts in standard black for $65.
