Another Climashield Apex 2.5oz + Momentum M90R MYOG :

A cord + cordlock is used to close the top of the beanie.
With cordlock open I could use it as face cover or neck warmer.

So this is pretty much an insulated buff? very cool!

How is, quite literally, the breathability when over your face? Is it stifling or still pretty airy?

exactly ! just a little bit shorter than a buff.
I found it pretty breathable, after some minutes I got a vapor screen on my glasses, but just a little bit on the Face Cover inner.

Comparing with a buff, vapor screen also appear with a buff.
But in winter (-20°C this Saturday) the buff was totally frozen... my Face Cover doesn't :)

I've made a few quilts now with the 2.5 and 5 oz Apex and have been trying to figure out what to do with the scraps from them. I really like this idea. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I did some quick estimates and I'm guessing it should weigh around 1oz.

Is that the final weight you got? If so that's half the weight of the wool buff yet warmer and less icing issues. Not bad!
