Excellent in all conditions

I’ve used several other brands and there is no comparison. Stop looking elsewhere and buy genuine Hippo Hands. They keep the wind and rain away leaching you with dry hands. Great American company and American product. You won’t have to worry about your order sitting on a ship waiting to be offloaded since they are made in the USA!

Warmer is better!

Thoroughly satisfied with the purchase! Easily installed and doesn't interfere with controls or mirror sight lines. Warmer hands are better and safer. If you ride in the wet and cold, you need these!

Very well said, Christopher! We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

Great Solution for issues with cold fingers.

Years of commuting via motorcycle in the winter, working outside year round and winter mountaineering has left me with hands that are super sensitive to cold.
Below 50°f my fingers start hurting after 10-15 minutes, even with heated grips.

The Rogue Hippo Hands solved this for me. I can now comfortably commute via my KTM comfortably into the 30s. Lower temps would likely be comfortable, but I'm wary of ice in Central Oregon.
I can wear short, perforated summer gloves, with the biggest complaint now being that the small gap between my jacket and glove means my wrist gets cold.

Oh man, we love stories with a happy ending! It sucks to have cold hands when riding so we're super stoked you're loving your Hippo Hands, Chris. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution! Ride on and be safe!

Worth it!

Not only do I like the product and how it performs. I also met the company owners and these guys are there to take care of you. On the way home from the Touratech Rally in Plain, Washington we experienced heavy rain and my hands stayed dry and warm.

Hey Richard! We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Lots of companies at the Touratech Rally this year didn't love the cool, damp weather, but we loved it! We got to know so many great people because their hands were cold. Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution, we're glad to be along for the ride!

Rogue RADness!

Though I haven’t had a chance to use these yet, they are now permanently added to my panniers in case the weather goes sideways. Install is a breeze and the test ride I did with them proved to be most excellent!

Hey Cole! Go for a ride on a crappy day already and let us know what you think! We think you'll be even more impressed! <<insert winky-smily face here>> Thank you taking the time to write a review. Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

Best investment in warm hands yet!

I hate wearing heavy gloves with a passion of a thousand burning suns. They never fit and stay properly and I lose valuable control feel. While my grip heaters do work great, they still leave the front of my hands freezing and numb after my usual morning commute.

These Backcountry covers are suited perfect for my morning ride to work, or to the local trail head. When the temps rise enough, I can pull them off and stash them in my Mosko Nomad tank bag. They take up about as much room as my Klim Adventure gloves would If I had to stash them for the lighter Baja gloves I prefer.

They're the perfect solution to someone who hates dealing with heavy gloves, and just needs that little something extra to make the ride that much more comfortable.

I'd absolutely recommend these to anyone who rides a dual sport or super moto for those chilly morning or evening rides.

A thousand burning suns, Gary??? That's some serious hate. We get it! We're glad we can add some love to every ride. It's what the world needs these days... We really appreciate you taking the time to share your powerful words and passion! Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

Great addition for cold weather trips!

I bought these at a Touratech rally and needed added warmth to get home. They work very well! They are insulated and block the wind. Reflective material is a nice addition for nighttime rides. Easy to instal and remove too. Only downside is they are bulky and hard to see the controls but not a problem when you know where they are. Very happy with these!

HI John, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We met lots of great people at the Touratech Rally. We're glad to have added some comfort to your ride home! Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

Touratech Rally 2021

Saw the booth at the rally. The guys were great and put them on my 2019 Triumph Tiger. My ride home was so much more comfortable because it rained for 3 hours straight and my hands were toasty warm.

Thank you!

We're glad you stopped by our Touratech booth, Rick. And we're super stoked to have been part of your comfy ride home in the rain. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

Pretty RAD!

I recently bought my second set of Hippo Hands and this time I went all in with the Alcan - Max Coverage. I have already used them on an ADV trip with a lot of rain and I love the protection they provided. With the heated grips, I don't need to worry about big thick bulky gloves in the cold weather. An added thing I love about the depth of these is when I do take my gloves off or changing GoPro batteries, I can place my gloves or whatever fits inside the Hippo Hands like a little dry shelf! Def recommend these to anyone looking for a great product.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, Ian. We greatly appreciate your repeat business and are super stoked that you love the Alcans. Thanks for being part of the Warm Hands Revolution!

Great in the rain and cold wind

Took a 600 hundred mile trip. Last 140 miles in pouring down rain. Hands dry and warm. Thanks to Hippo Hands.

Yeah, Rickey gets it! That's exactly what we're talking about! Warm, dry hands. It matters most when you're faced with the inevitable downpour with 140 miles to go! Thanks for being part of the Warm Hands Revolution!

Game Changer

Did a 2 hr ride with temps ranging from 40 F to 46 F at hwy speed (80mph). I used my Hippo Hands and heated grips at mid setting. I used my summer riding gloves. This set up was perfect. Hands were comfortable without cumbersome winter gloves. Worth every penny! P.S. A minor fringe benefit, when I got to my destination I just tucked my gloves into the Hippo Hands as storage.

Summer gloves all year long! That's what we love to hear! Heated grips and a pair of Hippo Hands are the perfect combination and make a warm, dry hand cave for both front paws! Welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution, William!

Warm hands now

Best add on yet! Great quality and price. Fast shipping!

We love to hear that, Jerry! Thanks for sharing a review and welcome to the Warm Hands Revolution!

LOVE the HH’s especially in the rain!

Super beneficial in the cold, but also great in the rain, which i hadn’t even considered before having them! GREAT investment!!

Terry, thanks for taking the time to share a review. People who ride get it and you clearly are a welcome addition to the Warm Hands Revolution! Ride on!

So glad I have them

Was really surprised by quality construction
I bought for a trip I'm own now. 3500 miles in rocky mountains. Lows of 25 in morning. I have heated grips also. No problems with hands staying warm. 5 other guys riding don't have hippo hands, their hands are cold.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review, Chris. We hear similar stories a lot! We hope the others that were on your ride will join the Warm Hands Revolution soon! Ride on and be safe... and WARM!

Great product works well

Thanks, Brian. We appreciate your business and are stoked you're now part of the Warm Hands Revolution!

backcountry hippo hands

These fit my Harley Pan America perfectly. Don't even need to use the velcro.

Hey Frank B. Thanks for sharing the love. We're glad you like your Backcountrys. We're pretty stoked that Alcans, Rogues and Backcountrys all fit the Pan America so nicely.

well worth the price....and more

Other brands force you to cut holes for the mirrors, which means you have to pull stuff apart just to get them on. I keep my Hippo Hands in my top trunk and can pull them out and mount in under 1 minute. An important feature when the weather comes in.

My bike is my only vehicle. I commute daily year-round and travel. These are great on rainy days any season and are extra awesome with heated grips. Been thinking about picking some up for years. Waited way too long.

Hey Chris, Thanks for taking the time to share your review. We're stoked you're happy with your Rogues! We're for people who really ride and you clearly fit the bill! Welcome to the #warmhandsrevolution!

Warm dry hands

Got these because waterproof gloves are usually only good for a couple years and you never know when they will fall. Even if these eventually were to leak 99 percent of the water would be stopped from getting through your gloves. Looking forward to years of service from these

Hi Steve. We make them to withstand the rigors of riding so hopefully they last as long as you own your bike! Hippo Hands are typically a better value than a lot of 'waterproof' gloves too! Thanks for being part of the #warmhandsrevolution.

Great service

I received my Rogue Hippo Hands and the velcro that wraps around side of the handguard was a bit short. I contacted Hippo Hands and they immediately put a longer pair in the mail, no charge. Awesome customer service!

Mark, we're happy you're happy. 'nuff said!

Hippo Hands on a 1994 FLST Fat Boy! So far very good

It appears that very few Hippo Hand Rogues and/or Alcans have been mounted on Harley Davidson bikes. I called Hippo Hands and they suggested the best fit would be the Rogues. So I had to come up with my own attachments to make it work! I purchased from e-bay a pair of metal black handguards (pic 1) for about $22 . Mounted them on the rearview mirror posts. I next drilled a hole in the front of the Hippo Hands and aligned it up to the hand guard and drilled a hole in it, in fact I ended up drilling about three holes to get the best fit. The position between the right side and the left side worked out to be very different. I used a 3 /4 inch hex headed bolt with a large washer and matching rubber washer and inserted it through the hole I drilled in the Hippo Hand right and into the hole I drilled on the hand guard pic 2), used a washer and self locking nut to secure the Hippo Hands to the metal hand guard (pic 3), Aligned it to where I felt right and tightened up the nut (pic 4). It's not going any where! I then did the same to the left hand guard and left Hippo Hand. Feels pretty good and looks pretty good. Would of put more pics, but 5 was all that I was allowed. I think it turned out pretty nicely (pic 5). Very easy and quickly to take on and off, if needed. With this instillation, I think the larger Alcan would also fit.

Hey Dennis, We love the ingenuity. And we're stoked that you're liking your Rogues.

Excellent customer service.

I contacted Hippo Hands to ask about longer Velcro straps to attach to my handguards. I was planning on buying some but they replied that they were sending some to me, no charge. Awesome customer service and quick shipping. Thank you.

Alcan

Game changer in cold weather. You can wear smaller more dexterous gloves and still be warm. Awesome. Installed on a Tiger Rally Pro.

That's it, Doug! Enjoy the rider more, be safer with thinner gloves and have warm, dry hands all year long! You nailed it! Welcome to the #warmhandsrevolution we're glad you're here!

Helmets for my hands...at last

Bulky winter gloves will no longer inhibit me from "feeling" my motorcycle more intimately. Now with Hippo Hands, I will be using middle-weight gloves in winter. What a difference! Thank you for bringing these back with style!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We love when customers totally get the concept of feeling the ride! Welcome to the #warmhandsrevolution we're glad you're here!

Love the new Rogue! Just did a 4 day ride with lows in the 30s and the hands stayed warm the entire time!

Yeah Nels! Tested and approved by Mr. Akerlund! Welcome to the #warmhandsrevolution we're glad you're here!
