Cold hands

Post by whistlepig » Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:33 pm

What are you guys using to keep your hands warm? Ive been looking at the Snapdragon Hyperhands but some say the sleeves are too short and also I'm not sure they make single blade models.

Make your own. Note that these will stretch over a canoe paddle handle, so a closing method is unnecessary.

If you need more warmth, wear some non-cotton glove liners.

Shawn Alexander at Fall Line Canoes makes very nice single blade pogies, I love mine.

Just being willing to try is half the battle.

NRS mitts are the way to go up here in the great white north.

Bob's pogies are awesome! I've been using a slightly modified version for years.

The falline pogies are great but you need to have a pair of gloves in in your pocket in case of swims, rescues, lost paddles etc

Another vote for NRS Toaster Mitts here in Canadia. Nice and warm, even at -10 when things are freezing over. I love these things!

Bought the NRS Toaster Mitts based on the recommendations here and I have to say they are really warm and provide fantastic grip on the paddle. First time out, I wore them on a 40-degree day--admittedly not that cold--and my hands were actually hot and sweaty. I'm going to say these for the days in the low 30s.
