    Can't wait to get this stuff to play with.

    Sounds like the holy grail of insulation. The spec says 1 layer protects a person to -25, then why would you ever need more than that?

    This doubting Thomas needs to see it to believe it.

    Heya Knotty... I'm with you!

    Unless it's got a core of Aerogel, in which case WOW what an awesome price.

    Don't believe it!

    Tonight it is 28, and supposed to get down to 19. I have two layers of IX for my UQ, plus another small IX pad at each end, inside the hammock, plus a hammock sock with one layer of IX on the bottom. Finally, I added a layer of raw IX under the hammock. I think it might work.

    My other tests have been with UQs that included a layer of Wiggy's window insulation, and with a vest with sleeves.

    Good night!

    What does the Wiggy's do that the IX doesn't, and vice versa?

    When IX falls away from you at all, it doesn't insulate you at all.

    The fit is important, particularly at the ends of an UQ. Last night, everything below my chest was toasty. I had two problems with the IX only UQ at the head end, where the sock was open.

    One was that I did not cinch or gather the ends enough. They fell away from the hammock (see the other problem) and let cold air into the UQ.

    The other problem was that I did not have the suspension tight enough. The UQ sagged down, and my shoulders got cold.

    What made the 24*F night workable was the Speer Top Blanket! I just pulled it down over my shoulders and all was good!

    Insultex will ship today or tomorrow, and likely will arrive Mon or Tues.
