    Recommendations for cheap pogies?

    Amazon has a bunch of manufacturers of cheap pogies for around $20-25. Anyone here have some of the cheap ones - and likes, dislikes, sizing comments?

    Example:

    Strangely enough I picked up a cheap pair from Amazon last week for the kiddo's fatbike.

    While she hasn't used them (yet) they seem identical (different logos is all I can see) to my older pair of bar mitts which cost more than twice as much...

    I think the fit on my older pair is fine for my purposes.

    I have a buddy with even "fancier" pogies but he likes to keep snacks and small electronics in his reach so his seem to have a bit more volume than the cheaper neoprene style...

    Yeah, ebay has some China cheapies for 20 bucks. Seems like an item that doesn't need to be that specialized.

    I've used pogies paddling & riding motorcycles, IME you want something that is easy to get your hands into while on the move, IME the shelter they will give is more imprtant than depending on them for warmth

    back in the day I made a reallly ghetto looking set out of sections of car innertube which actualy worked really well , to make the openning stay open I sewed heavy gauge electrical wire into the opening

    I have a pair of these https://www.amazon.com/Airhead-SLHM-.../dp/B0022ZJJSK
    The protection from the elements is great, but the ergonomics are not stellar. I don't think the more Bar Mitts style copies were available at the time I got mine, or at least weren't so cheap. Mine don't really have right curvature for mtb riding but they served me well for $20 for two seasons. With all that said, the first ones linked would probably work more than fine.

    Thanks everyone - sounds like the knockoffs are OK generally. I don't ride that much in winter once there's actual snowpack -- but some $20 pogies would help extend the riding season while waiting to ski.
