StarStarStarStarStar Easy to use

Pros

keeps hands warm, easy to use

Cons

none I can think of

Other Thoughts

for those with raynauds, these are awesome. I use crab claw gloves in the winter and still get raynauds. These have ended my symptoms.

StarStarStarStarStar Worth it for me.

Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

These mitts allow me to ride in near zero temps with light gloves.
Practical, allow all needed movements around the grips and shifters, and create a warm bubble for hands. We had similar stuff when we grew up in the sixties but these are much better.

Cons

None I can think of

StarStarStarStarStar Very Good

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Keeps hands warm and dry.

Cons

Tend to let water in if one is not moving forward (like if bike is parked)

Other Thoughts

I am a bike messenger and this was my best purchase in a long time. Need the road version for the road bike now!

One more, when it gets dry or warm through the day, you can just ride "on top" of the bar mitts. Very handy

StarStarStarStarStar Keeps out the cold without restricting movement.

Ownership: more than a year

Pros

Great Product. I use them every winter. In above-freezing wether I don't even need gloves. When it is below freezing I only need thin gloves, so I can always reach my keys and fold my bike without having to take off my gloves. On very warm days I can unzip it a bit to let more air in or hold the bike from outside.

Cons

I cannot see which speed I am in, but you can't have everything.

Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

I ride comfortably all winter in New Jersey with Bar Mitts. I have ridden in windy and frigid days, to zero Fahrenheit, 25 mph winds and had toasty hands wearing only light gloves. These are the best investment in cold weather cycling gear I have ever made. I have Bar Mitts for my commuter bike, and for my road bike.

Cons

It will take some experience to get back in to your Bar Mitts when riding. They cover up my bell. You will have to plan a place to stow them on a mild afternoon commute, since Bar Mitts can be a little too warm when temperatures are above 40 degress F.

StarStarStarStarStar a great purchase for cold weather riding

by

Pros

easy to install and get your hands into

Cons

don't really have any

Other Thoughts

These do exactly what they say. I have the mtb type with bar ends and they work great.

Bar Mitts

"Bar Mitts evolved from many years of hang gliding and cold winter bicycle rides. During the cold months, I used my hang gliding mitts on top of my bicycle handle bars. Hang gliding mitts are used on a straight steering control bar. As one can imagine, not being on the shifter and brake levers had its downfalls especially when it came to descents and emergency braking. I designed various Bar Mitts prototypes that enclosed the shifter and brake levers. I am so pleased that the final product is now available for sale. We hope you enjoy Bar Mitts and many warm rides."
