A Light, Low Profile Pogie for Kayaking
That’s a cold photo above. The air is just about 50F degrees and the ice has been gone for awhile but nights are still below freezing. It’s perfect weather for these lighter pogies. Called Marathon Pogies, because they are designed for easy on and off for quick portages and also for flexibility as conditions change during a long race. The best thing about them is they stay open, the nylon has a stiff shape so they don’t collapse when empty. Nylon also means they won’t absorb any water and paddle shaft stays dry. The toasty black color warms up in the sun. These are great for days that aren’t too frosty but where you need a little warmth – Best Above 40F/4.5C degrees. Mid-race or training session you can just slide them in towards the middle of the paddle and they’ll stay put and stay open until you need them again. These marathon kayak pogies are very light. They weigh about 33 grams, same as 7 US nickels.
