Most people these days want breathable rain gear that negates use as true VBL-hmmm unless you wear it inside out
That is true, no need to spend many $ to gain VB benefits. The Warmlite gear has some sort of lining (Fuzztstuff?) that might be nice rather than wearing a layer of thin long johns, and the fit might be an advantage. I don't know what the cost might be though, maybe too much.
I think they also have some rain gear intended to see dbl duty as a VB.
When my only need is to block vapor to an under hanging layer such as a HHSS or PeaPod, a $3 space blanket has, on and off for several years now, always got the job done. And maybe even reflects some heat back to me. I often have wondered if the instant warmth I always feel when adding the sp.bl. is the blocking of radiant heat, or simply the VB effect.
