UltraLight Vest


Here is my last MYOG : an ultralight synthetic Vest


I've ordered fabrics on Thru-Hiker :

  • Outer shell : 1 yard of Momentum 90 MR (black)
  • Inner fabric : 1 yard of Momentum M50 (coyote brown)
  • Insulation : 1 yard of Climashield APEX 2.5oz
  • 3 yards of Lycra binding
  • 1 feet continuous zipper
  • 1 signle pull zipper slider

Pattern & instructions

I've followed the instruction of the minima vest from thru-hiker with some modification in order to make a short zipper.


1rst I've cut the front, back and collar of inner M50 Fabric. DSC_1791.JPG

Same for the outer M90 fabric & Climashield insulation.


Following the thru-hiker instructions I've sewn the inner with the Climashied Apex. The Climashied Apex is easier to work with than Primaloft because it doesn't need any quilting.


I now have :

  • 3 pieces of "Inner" (including M50 stitched to Climashied Apex)
  • 3 pieces of outer M90 black fabric

I've :

  1. Linked front & back together at shoulder top and add the collar.
  2. Do the same with the outer fabric.
  3. Sewn the inner & the shell by the collar & the zipper

From now Icouldn't follow the thru-hiker instructions because of the short zipper... I've tried & I've lost a lot of time by unsewn stitches...

Now I have closed the 2 sides of the vest. I've started by closing the inner sides & then the shell sides (not any stitch between inner & shell at the side).

To finish the vest I've just added lycra binding on the arms hole & at the bottom of the vest.


Finished weight : 145g DSC_0404.JPG DSC_0406.JPGDSC_0407.JPGDSC02083.JPGDSC02092.JPGDSC02090.JPG
