New Bar Mitts review
New Bar Mitts in a size XL to replace the small size. The small size was constricting and compressed the insulating qualities of the pogie, while making it difficult to shift or apply the brakes.
I used the XL for my commute this morning at 7 degrees into the SW wind for half the trip. I used my Pearl Izumi lobster gloves and my right index and middle fingers were numbing cold. The positive effect of the XL is plenty of room to maneuver my hands and pull out quickly if needed.
