Clothing Insulated With Aerogel Promises To Keep Out The Most Dire Cold

Lots of companies like The North Face and Champion can (and have tried to) use aerogel, but OROS Apparel is betting these larger companies think it’s too much of a hassle to produce. OROS claims to have found a better way to produce aerogel, which insulates just as well as its more brittle counterparts, but is much easier to work with and doesn’t rub off on the skin. Formerly, the substance needed to be contained within some kind of plastic or impermeable sealant to be used in clothing. OROS’ flavor, called Solarcore, does not.
