Backcountry — Enduro and dirt bike motorcycle hand covers

Our all new Backcountry™ model is designed for dirt bikers, enduro riders, snow bikes and commuters. It may not surprise you that they are covered with HippoSkin™, our waterproof outer shell, and insulated with a generous layer of HippoFat™, a warm, flexible, closed cell foam—both are designed to keep inclement weather away from your hands.

The Backcountry is 9" deep. If you like to stand and ride, this is the model for you! But… these hand covers also fit to just about any bike, they are even a great option for any cruiser with brush/hand guards. They feature a durable, quilted interior and flexible, neoprene cuff which ensures a great fit on so many bikes. The Backcountry is our smallest, most easily adaptable hand cover.

The Backcountry features side and front reflective panels for higher visibility in low light situations.

Sold in pairs. Hand/brush guards are required for proper fitment and for safety reasons. Hippo Hands go on and off in seconds and never require tools or hardware.

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.

Helmets for my 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 these!

For having to drive in the morning as a commuter motorcycle on certain days - it sure can be freezing on your hands in those early hours. These were a life-saver! Wouldn't have been able to do it without them. I only wish I had the brackets to support them since they aren't able to support themselves and I constantly was battling keeping them upright over my hands unless I put the clutch and brake handles through the elastic.

Love that they are quick to install / remove

These to a good job of blocking wind & rain, are super easy to install / remove, and are small enough that they do not interfere at all with controls!

Warm and dry.

Used Hippo Hands on a dual sport ride up the Mid-Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route. No heated grips on my bike. Despite cool temperatures and bouts of rain, these kept my hands warm and dry. Sure they look a little funky but they work splendidly.
