    Tiller, you are right about needing to test it at this juncture. I need it to get a bit more chilly. I feel this can be under and top insulation, as well as a hammock sock. It wouldn't be the...

    If you reference a Tillman brochure about their Thermofelt, it seems to convey the opposite of everyone's preconceptions. It says that it's low heat transfer for the objects being covered, and it...

    True, and I have considered them as part of an insulation system. I just have less faith in their standalone ability in sub freezing temps.

    The plumbers mat is also meant to protect the floor where they are doing work. This means that it must be more than just flame retardant, because at 1/8th of an inch thick it must have insulation...

    There are no quilts that can compete with a twenty dollar price point, and then is relatively light also. The fact is that many here make assumptions of how it insulates, without speaking of any...

    An 18 by 24 is only 5.6 ounces, so I see that as quite light but bulky. The question is how much insulation it would provide for the weight. I figure that 18x24 is nearly the size of a torso, and I...
