What makes 3M Thinsulate Insulation so effective? It is all in the fibers. Insulations work in two ways, first by trapping air; the more air trapped, the more efficient the insulation. Second, Thinsulate works by reflecting back the body radiant heat. The unique microfibers of Thinsulate insulation are about ten times smaller the fibers of most other synthetic insulations, which mean they are much more efficient at trapping air, and more effective at keeping you warm and comfortable. It also means more fibers can be packed into the same space, where they can reflect back more of the body radiant heat. The performance of Thinsulate insulation is unaffected by dry cleaning and repeated machine washing.

A water resistant and breathable outer shell that helps to keep you dry. A process that we use to create a breathable water-resistant fabric. Our fabric is treated with a microporous layer that prevents the fabric from absorbing any type of moisture from rain or snow.
