Description:  The Kinsman Pullover is the 200wt fleece killer: more loft, half the weight, and great wind resistance. With a finished weight as low as 6.9 oz* and excellent packability, the Kinsman compliments ultralite strategies where utility must be maximized while pack real estate requirements are kept to a minimum. And making it yourself increases your self-reliance and liberates you from the aggressive marketing and high prices of commercial gear.

Every aspect of the Kinsman Pullover has been designed for your success. Take a look at what you get with the kit:
  • Detailed instructions** with 24 pictures to guide you through every step of the construction process
  • A full sized pattern including all seam allowances and design details
  • Your choice of shell and liner fabrics
  • A warm, durable layer of 3.0 oz/yd2 Primaloft
  • All the notions you need for the project from the waist shock cord & toggle to an ultralite zipper
  • Athletic and Relaxed Fit options included on every pattern
  • Phone, message board, and email support if you run into any snags
