For the motorcycle enthusiast, there is a good bit of history associated with the Hippo Hands brand. It all started in the early 70s with the legendary motorcycle product designer, Craig Vetter. When on a long, chilly ride—with painfully cold hands—Vetter wrapped his sleeping bag around his handle bars using duct tape creating the first Hippo Hands.

Hippo Hands continues to evolve today. Our product line is growing with added designs and new options. Riders share insights and experiences with us and this leads to product improvements. We aim to do our part in making every ride the best ride possible.
Our mantra: Every Ride. Comfort.We are dedicated to every rider who has experienced discomfort while on their motorcycle: cold hands while riding can turn an amazing ride into misery. The way we prefer to look at it is that keeping cold wind off your hands improves every ride. To say it straight, our products make riding more comfortable, more safe and more fun.
The Hippo Hands team loves to ride. And whether you're out on your first weekend tour with your buddies or commute daily come rain or shine, we get you. Riding in comfort is simply more fun. Wind conducts heat away from your hands and can lead to unpleasant and unsafe riding situations. Hippo Hands keep your hands in a wind-free, warm, fleece-lined sanctuary making a long ride more pleasant and safer for the rider.
Hippo Hands are the original motorcycle hand covers and are still the best. Each pair is hand-made in the USA using quality craftsmanship and materials.
Hippo Hands come in several models to ensure a quality fit on hundreds of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs, and snow machines. Team Hippo Hands loves to ride and we love to ride safely and in comfort—it is our goal to help you do the same. Our hand covers will keep your hands warm and dry by shedding rain and wind away from your hands.
Every Ride. Comfort.
