Hi,

Here's my first creation, a pair of Insulated Mitten :
Insulated Mitten

I use Climashield Apex 2.5oz & Momentum M90R from Thru-hiker. I'll use them to improve my winter sleeping system.
I made them thanks to Lance Marshall's pattern.

You'll find some more pictures on my website :

Climashield Mittens on 02/12/2014 21:24:08 MST Print View

I just finished making my own pair of insulated mittens! I used:

2.5 oz climashield
1.1 oz uncoated ripstop for inner shell and back-of-hand's outer shell (green fabric)
Heavier (more durable) ripstop from JoAnns for the palm's outer shell (gray fabric)

Finished, the pair came out to 1.55 oz. I used the size "Large" mitten pattern and they fit well over my hands wearing a light pair of size medium gloves; I did cut 2 inches off the length of the pattern. Before I sewed it in, the Climashield for both mittens weighed a total of 0.7oz, so you could double the insulation for very little weight gain.

Thanks for posting how to make these!
