Hippo Hands - owners are retiring

Found out that the owners of Hippo Hands are retiring as I placed an order. They're getting rid of remaining stock, doesn't sound like someone will be keeping the business going. Looking forward to trying them out, hope they work as well as others indicate.

Going into the third Bavarian winter season with mine. They perform superbly.

I have a set of the Canadian made Hippo Hands and the old Vetter Hippo Hands. The Vetters are warmer and seal better. The Canadians come off and go on quicker but leak too much air. They are the are the set made to go over bush guards. Don't buy these they are too big.
