    It appears that they are combining heat reflective materials.
    Will be very interesting to see the product developments for next year.

    I used the wrong link. This link is better, more detail and it looks even more comfortable in this picture. These quilty paddy looking surfaces are supposed to be more comfy, less likely to slide off, than the horizontal baffles on a TAR but I've never tried. Spring 2018 might be my moment.

    Impressively light relative to tar neoair or mm superlite. I wonder if the uninsulated has any reflective stuff in. How much insulation do you get from 1oz of primaloft?

    I covered an old pad of mine with an heat reflecting emergency blanket and i become instantly warm
    so they could possibly using heat reflective covered surface with a little insulation inside to retain the heat.
