    Insultex shirt... gotta make this post fast!

    I'm sitting here in a $3 thrift store overshirt that I insulated with Insultex... gotta make this fast, I'm starting to heat up. I'm going to walk the dog and see how it goes.

    Tomorrow, I'm going deer hunting in rain, snow and cold. It will be a good test of this stuff!

    First time I heard this was after one of my rants about the condition I found a state park in after a holiday weekend.

    Now I think its funny, At the time I had no nice words for the person that posted it.

    patience... the dog was insistent!

    Here are pics!

    I also made some tapered sleeves. The Insultex is not attached to the shirt, so I put it on as a pullover, then pull the shirt on over that.

    I was toasty while walking the dog... it is 45*F right now, and all I had on underneath the Insulted Shirt was a golf shirt.

    I wonder how a set of Insult PJ and footies would work on a cold hammock night?
