Pogies that allow you to open your top hand when paddling???

I really like pogies and have tried several brands over the years. I currently use SnapDragon neoprene pogies and really like them with one exception. I find that they do not allow me to sufficiently open my top hand on my stroke to prevent tendonitis issues. Can anyone recommend a pogie that is loose enough to allow you to open your top hand?


I’ve never had that restriction with the Kokatat Kayak Mitts (Pogis). They’re Tropos fabric, don’t weigh anything to speak of and wrap tight to the paddle shaft center when not in use.

Want me to send you a pair to try on?

pogies…oh! …you had me confused. Around here they are a bait fish.
