The elements can be tough on your hands. Fight back with Bar Mitts.

Bar Mitts are a cold weather bicycle accessory to help keep hands warm and comfortable in the cold, rain, snow or wind.
Easily installed and removed for temperature changes.
Can be used with regular cycling gloves of varying thickness.
They have a zipper opening for the cables and a Velcro closure that attaches to the handle bar.
Bar Mitts stay secure on the handle bars while riding allowing your hands to slide in and out without difficulty.
Braking and shifting is also easily accomplished.
If your hands get too warm, simply unzip the Bar Mitts to ventilate.
Bar Mitts are made of neoprene, a synthetic rubber often used for waterproofing or weather resistant clothing (i.e. wetsuits).
The neoprene has a closed cell construction, meaning it is filled with closed air bubbles.
These bubbles serve as insulators, just as styrofoam does.
Since the cells are closed, the neoprene itself is waterproof.
The thickness of the neoprene is 5.5 mm with nylon laminated on each side.
Due to the body of the neoprene, the Bar Mitts stay open allowing easy access and removal of hands.
