Dogwood Designs Pogies Plus (A+++)

I ordered a pair through Eric @
All I can say is....... WOW are these things GREAT!!!

I realize they may be over-kill for some, but since I lost part of my left index finger in an accident at work, I was looking for something that would keep my hands from getting overly cold. Since the accident my left hand can't handle the cold.

I put them on the Pug Sunday night, after an oh shit they're not gonna fit over my H-bars moment, (they fit just fine), a little tweak here, and a little tweak there, it was all good.

Knowing I'd give them a good test Monday morning on my way to work.
I woke Monday morning to -30 degrees. It did warm up to -27 by the time I left for work??!! ;)
With my normal winter riding gloves in my bag, I set out with one summer glove on my left hand and no glove on my right hand. I had my doubts about doing this. After going a few blocks I was pleasently surprised that neither hand was cold, just toasty warm!!

Imagine 4:30 a.m. and me pedaling with an even bigger smile than normal!!!

Tuesday morning was the same, almost ;) -17, -33 with the wind. I put both gloves on this time, and it was the same..... toasty warm hands!!!

Next to the Pugsley, these Dogwood Plus Pogies are the best purchase I've made for my winter riding pleasure!!!


  1. Glad you like your new Pug purchase Joe!,
    My new Barr Mitts should be warm enough for here once the temps drop again!

  2. I gotta check them out, thanks. My Bar Mitts are too small for comfort on my FatBack.
