    Climashield is special only here and a few other places. Mostly, that is a matter of selective availability, promotion and touting. The pleasant properties for DIY purposes for folks like me with limited, training, skills, experience and preparation / setup make it an attractive synthetic bedding material. But, I don't kid myself that numerous other products used in tens of millions of garments and quilts are inferior.
    Thanks for chiming in here, DemostiX!

    If my above post was unclear on that one, I agree with you; Climashield has two things going for it. It traps air in pockets and is resistant to heat transfer through the actual polyester fibers. That doesn't make it a good heat sink; its thermal inertia isn't actually all of that great. It makes it a good insulator; it's thermal resistance is pretty high.

    Sorry if there was some confusion on that due to my wording.

    Ah. Thanks for the clarification!
