The Stateless Society: 1oz Down Mitts on 01/10/2011 10:53:41 MST Print View

Got snowed into the studio Friday night, and a new product is the result:


~1oz per pair(M), puffy Down Mitts.

900fp Goose Down, calculated to ~1.5" loft.

0.9oz Intrepid fabric, Black, Blue, or Gray Ripstop, or Black Tafetta.

Small shock cord cinch. Should these have a cord lock or be pre-tightened? Weight addition of the tiny cordlock would be marginal.


$65 shipped per pair, S/M/L. I'll make these any combination of the above colors you choose.


PM or email the.stateless.society@gmail.com to order. Will ship within 1-2 weeks.

My vote would be for a micro 0.5g sewn-in cord lock w/ 1/16" 1.5g/m shock-cordage = should add about 1g to the weight total and would be well worth it. Make sure there is enough "tail" to be able to hitch the ends of the cordage together or to other things.

Looking nice!

Would it be useful to add a non-insulated 'sleeve' at the top of the mitts to ensure they stay over or under jacket sleeves?

Doug,

I could certainly do that. Make them 2" longer with that section uninsulated. It'll add some weight though. I wouldn't want to shorten the insulated part though.


As to the sewn-in cordlock thing, aye, it's already got the tiny shock cord, I can add the cordlocks like the eVent/Cuben mitts.
