Although not a true
article of VBL clothing, I do remember wearing my Houdini windshirt through the night on a cold evening - that seemed to keep me quite warm, and also provided some vapor barrier quality to protect my UQ that night. It worked to some extent, but I see your point of essentially wrapping
yourself in the VBL, as opposed to lying on top of it. Good point indeed.
No more space blanket for me, though.
