    Any recent Insul-Bright results

    I found some threads on this suff, but nothing recent.

    I picked up some of this Insul-Bright yesterday, to make a sleeping bag pad, to use inside the bag.

    I have the top cover cut from fleece, but havevn't decided on the bottom cover.
    I am thinking to layer it as:
    top piece:
    fleece
    middle :
    Insul-Bright
    Bottom :
    undecided so far.

    I am hoping to use it as a pad inside the sleeping bag. 24" by 72"

    The threads I found go back as far as 2007 and a few in 09.


    Any input?

    Thanks

    Just used some the other day to make a freezer bag cozy. Used the instructions found here.

    I don't know why it wouldn't make a Randy cozy too.

    Well I made one lastnight,,,
    one layer of fleece,
    the insul-bright in the middle and the bottom layer was nylon digital camo.

    Using it inside of the sleeping bag lastnight, 39*, worked beautifully.no other pads or bottom insulation.

    It didn't get as cold as I wanted, and we only have a few more cold snapps left this year, then it is bug-net time.
    I will get some pics up later after daylight.

    Has anyone tried to use the same setup – fleece sandwiched between two layers of insul-bright and outer layers of rip stop nylon as a under quilt?

    From their web site: http://www.warmcompany.com/ibpage.html

    The Warm Company is pleased to present Insul~Bright, a needle-punched, insulating material ideal for home sewers and crafters. With today’s focus shifting back to family and home, new and experienced sewers are choosing simple, practical projects for use in their homes or as gifts. Pot holders, oven mitts, and casserole covers are all very popular projects made functional and safe with Insul~ Bright.

    Insul~Bright consists of hollow, polyester fibers needlepunched through a nonwoven substrate and through a reflective metalized poly film. The needled material is breathable and won’t break down with washing. The hollow fibers resist conduction while the reflective metalized poly film resists radiant energy. The energy, hot or cold, is reflected back to its source.
