Clay Mitt or Clay Bar?

Which one do you use?

I've been using G3 clay mitt and been very pleased with it - very easy to use and I use a strong shampoo mix as a lubricant

Both tbh. The mitt is a lot faster in using but the bar gets in places the mitt can't.

Never used a mitt, still haven't seen an explanation of how they are folded
I may be missing something about how they work.

I've used both a cloth from Serious Performance and G3 Mitt. Whilst the advantage of the cloth is that it folds I found it leaving some residue behind even though I spent time breaking it in on the windscreen first. I think I'll go back to the tried and tested G3 mitt.
