Best Kayak Pogies for Racing and Competition
That’s a cold photo above. The air is just about 50F degrees and the ice has been gone for a while but nights are still below freezing and the water is COLD. It’s perfect weather for these lighter pogies. Originally 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, we refer to them as Low Profile Pogies due to their wrist length. The best thing about them is that they stay puffed open. The nylon has a stiff quality that holds its shape so they don’t collapse when empty. Being made from Ballistic Nylon means they won’t absorb any water and your 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, the same as 7 US nickels.
