 whitenoise . (whitenoise) - F Help with clo value for Mammut's insulation on 12/06/2012 15:47:12 MST Alright clo value experts, help me deduce my response from Mammut. I like their Rime Pro jacket, but had never heard of their Ajungilak insulation before (it has 100g of it evenly throughout their jacket). Sent a query to Mammut and here is the response:"Thermal Transmittance of Textile Materials (ASTM D1518--2003)Test ResultIntrinsic thermal resistance (Clo) : 2.488 (100gr/m2)"How would this break down in terms of warmth compared to Primaloft One, Sport, etc?Thanks!

 whitenoise . (whitenoise) - F Thanks... check my math on 12/06/2012 16:57:05 MST Thanks for the response. I don't know if my math is correct...100g = 3.527oz1 square yard = 0.836 square meters3.527 * 0.836 = 2.943 / 2.94 = 1.021.02 * 0.82Ajungilak clo/oz/yard = 0.836Is that accurate? Making Mammut's proprietary insulation just a little warmer than Apex? Or approximately 91% as warm as PL1?

One is a little better but it's so fragile - requires more quilting which may actually eliminate any advantage.
