Bar Mitt early review

I put some Bar Mitts on the Pugstigator, for photographic purposes.

With temps right at the freezing mark, I rode around the neighborhood a bit with no gloves. My hands were cool, but certainly not cold. If I was going out longer, a thin glove would have been great.

I do have elephant hands. Now that you pointed it out, I feel self-conscious.

Madden (I think) used to make something similar to this, but pulled them due to liability issues when people would go over the bars and break their wrists. Of course, those same people probably wear velcro shoes...
