damn, now those are heavy-duty! The pop bottles might work okay at deflecting wind too. But those that you made would be nice for tight singletrack! I have some bar mitts for my dirt bike that I think now I'll try them on the mtb. They go around the bars and are angled so you just stick your hands in. And then I can wear my regular gloves. I have winter cycling gloves but I get them sweaty even when it's freezing!
I recently installed huge hand guards and grip heaters on my big bike! makes a big difference but parts of hands still get cold from long exposure at speed, while commuting. That's when the bar mitts added to the mix work nicely! They're like $20 at cabelas, or $25 at Tractor Supply Co and have hand warmer pockets.
