Welcome To The Space Age - Aerogel Insulation

So, why Aerogel insulation, and just what the heck is aerogel insulation anyway?Firstly, where did this magical insulation come from? It was actually first developed of NASA for a myriad of uses within their space program. Due to the extreme heat and cold that space travel inherently presents NASA needed to create a solution, as nothing on the market was as efficient, and space is at a premium in both space suits and a space craft. Thus, NASA developed Aerogel insulation. It is the lightest insulator on the planet and is 99% air! Hard to believe. The greatest thing about aerogel insulation is that it has an extremely high R value (insulating value) compared to its size and bulk. If you take a look at a closed cell foam sleeping pad, something like the Thermarest Z-Lite, it has an R value of 2.0. This is about 20mm thick. The Thermarest Z Lite Sol has an R value of 2.0 at 20mm thick. Our space age aerogel insulation has an R value of 2.4 at just 5mm thick. We use it to protect your outdoor essentials.

Let's go ahead and compare this to our aerogel insulation and I think you'll see why we chose this as the main ingredient to protect all your outdoor essentials. We utilize a special type of NASA Grade aerogel insulation that packs a massive R value of 2.4 at only 5mm thick! This allows us to create ultralight and ultra insulating outdoor accessories like our West Slope Case,which is so light and packs so much insulation that it actually is a floating phone case.

Our aerogel insulation packs a massive R value of 2.4 at just 5mm thick. This space age material allows us to create the lightest soft coolers around.
At Cold Case Gear, we can't get enough of this stuff. By utilizing this specific space age insulation we are able to create gear that until now, has never existed. It truly is the backbone of our product development. By using aerogel insulation instead of other types of insulators we can create soft cooler like products that have such a small form factor you can easily bring them inside your backpack for any trip. Our goal is to provide you, our customer, the ability to insulate your every day essentials, like a cellphone, snacks, and more, each and everyday. Our favorite use for our products is definitely the food and cellphone protection. When you're out on a cold winter day it is a nice change to be able to take a bite of your energy bar without it being frozen solid. Likewise, our accessories will extend the life of your cellphone in extreme cold and heat and that comes in handy when you want to take some photos, listen to music, or potentially call for help. 
Our aerogel insulation comes in all shapes and sizes. This lets us mold it and create unique outdoor accessories for specific purposes.
Our aerogel insulation comes in all shapes and sizes so we are able to create all kinds of unique outdoor accessories for some pretty specific uses. Be on the lookout for new gear from Cold Case Gear in the future! We are so excited to have you along for this ride and we invite you to Untether From Temperature, with Cold Case Gear and our favorite, Aerogel insulation.
