Pros

Best bar mitts I've tried. Still doing the job after 5 winters. Easy to insert and remove gloved hands. Keep the wind off your hands.

Cons

Be careful in strong cross-winds as they hold a lot of wind.

Pros

I have never had cold hands with Bar Mitts, even with temperatures down to zero F. and windy conditions. After my first winter with Bar Mitts, I bought a set for my commuter bike. They are the best investment I have ever made in winter rinding gear.

Cons

It will take some experience to get your hands quickly and easily back in your Bar Mitts when riding. I get a bit of fatigue in my hands from keeping them in the same position in the mitts, but even after having a hand out of the mitt for a while, it works well with having a warm spot to retreat from the cold.

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."
