Npx 5 mm 3 finger mitt

Postby nicor » Sun Nov 04, 2012 5:59 pm

Anyone have any experience with the npx 3 finger mitt. I need something really warm as my hands are what I cannot seem to get to stay warm when it's like 6 degrees out.

I have a pair of Xcel 5mm three fingers and I can ride in extremely cold water but it is really thick so you don't have a good feeling on the bar and you can feel some pain in the lower arm section after an hour or so. But I did not find something as warm so I better kite one hour than nothing! I have fixed my foot problem with the Xcel Drylock 7mm boots. I'd love to find thinner material with the same degree of isolation but I have tried a lot of products and nothing beat theses.

Ha! I'm in quebec too, and riding yesterday 6 degee water and wind, you know what I'm talking about. Yes I'd rather get an hour in than nothing at all, and unless I can figure out how to keep my hands warmer I'm done for this season. Cheers

After searching around, I ordered XCEL Drylock gloves and boots cos everyone raved about them... fleece lined, gotta be good!
