Below is a private message I received back in November along with my response:

Anyway, yes those mittens remain one of the best purchases I have ever made and, although I have recently discarded most of my clothing/gear in the process of trying to fit it all (for all seasons and activities) in a single duffle, these will definitely be kept as I find them to be the most important piece of outerware (even way more important than jackets which I rarely use). I've also made a similar item for the feet by applying iron-on seam tape to the seams of loose fitting neoprene socks...the method of taped seems popular in the UK is, IMO, paramount and the execution of outdoordesigns.co.uk is excellent.
