aerogel sleeping pad? on 05/13/2010 11:34:35 MDT Print View

anyone have any experience with aerogel and know how this would work out?

It could be very thin, and still insulate as well as a ccf pad, or better. It seems that down is better for a jacket/bag, but for something that would be crushed, it seems that aerogel would be the best.

What about aerogel in winter boots?

EDIT: I take it back, just saw this:
