    Has anyone tried Poly-Therm Fleece W/Heat Reflecting Polyethylene Film for an underpad?

    Looks like it could work. I think I calculated the weight to be 4.5 oz./sq. yd. I imagine it could keep you pretty warm though, it's got fleece, PE foam (Insultex), and a space blanket! Might be worth it just for gits and shiggles.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    This stuff looks almost like Insul-Brite, which is a space blanket needle punched between 2 layers of thick polyester scrim. Do a search on Insulbrite and you'll find a few hits. Insulbrite is pretty warm, but when mixed with nylon and low humidity, you get zapped a lot...
