Solarcore is Different. It’s Thinner, Warmer, Lighter, Thanks to NASA-Inspired Insulation

Those of us who live and seek adventure in cold weather are familiar with the various thermal technologies available. With OROS, something is different. It’s lightweight, thin, and yet warmer than many other options we’ve owned thanks to the use of NASA-inspired aerogel. In terms of warmth-retention, nothing beats air. The major design component of any cold weather gear is aimed towards capturing and utilizing air. Air creates a buffer between temperature layers, trapping heat energy efficiently. In most types of cold weather gear, the balance is between the material and the amount of “loft” (air trapping) it can accomplish.
