I have seen a few questions on keeping our mitts warm when riding in cold wether, and I wanted to post this up for all to see, as we do not all look in all areas of the forum.

Back when I started riding, I was given a present of a set of Hippo Hands for my bike. Now I lived in Denver Colo and rode 365 a year, in as much as 12" of snow because I did not own a car and had a aby to feed.

Anyway, I have just learned that Hippo Hands are still in business, and if you are a year round rider, you really want to look into these! Even in snow, with a light leather glove and these Hippo Hands, I stayed warm, well my hands did anyway ! lol

I am in no way associated with these, they are just a great product I wanted to share with you.

Interesting.

But it does beg the question: if you recently had plastic surgery on your nose, could you safely use Hippo-hands after Rhinoplasty without getting run down by an Impala?

Those are a lot less pricey than a pair of heated gloves and look OEM-ish on a BMW :D.

I wonder about getting your hand back inside those after flipping up/down your face shield when the traffic light turns red/green ??

I'd actually wondered the same thing, but rather if you remove your hand while the bike has forward momentum, are the "sleeves" rigid enough to allow you to reinsert your gloved hand (with its attendant loss of tactile sensation) back into the Hippo's mouth in a timely fashion? And is their any space restriction (especially with gloved hands) that impinges on the operators' ability to operate brake and clutch levers?

The ones I had where stiff enough to keep there shape when you removed you hand to close/open a shield, take a drink of coffee ( on a dresser) or anything else you might do. .
