Thinsulate™ is considered "the warmest thin apparel insulation" available. When equal thickness material are compared, it provides about 1½ times the warmth of down and about twice the warmth of other high-loft insulation materials. Gaps between fibers not only reduce heat flow they also allow moisture to escape.
