aerogel products, anyone used it? on 01/08/2010 23:27:14 MST Print View

Aerogel is lightweight and has high R-value insulation.

Does anyone have experience with an Aerogel product?

http://www.polarwrap.com "Toasty Feet" insoles and the PolarWrap "PolarPad" have Aerogel.

www.pacoutdoor.com "4-season" sleeping pads:

Pacific Outdoor Equipment Hyper High Mtn,
Pacific Outdoor Equipment Uber High Mtn,
Pacific Outdoor Equipment Peak Oyl Aero Mtn Women's,

and Men's longer length sleeping pads have Aerogel.

I would link to Pacific Outdoor Equipment individual products, however, they have a downloadable PDF catelogue instead.

Are these products soft? Is it like sleeping on styrofoam?

I am not "challenging" Aerogel as a product: I would like to know.
