Manufacturer's Description

Klymit's NobleTek insulation system uses flexible, airtight yet breathable chambers filled with argon gas instead of down or fabric. NobleTek insulation is warmer and lighter-weight than fabric insulators because it uses argon gas, which is better at trapping warmth. 4mm of argon has the same thermal conductivity as 14mm of the best synthetic or natural fibers currently on the market.

Klymit NobleTek insulation is also less bulky than other insulators. It is very thin, only 15mm (less than half an inch) when fully inflated, and collapses to paper-thin, less than 0.5mm when deflated. This makes clothing easy to move around in when inflated, and easy to pack into small spaces for camping, hiking and storage when the gas is removed. Klymit NobleTek insulation also is weightless, retains its loft when inflated, stays warm when wet, is windproof and eco-friendly.

The gases used by Klymit are nontoxic, non-flammable and completely safe for both the user and the environment. The gas canisters are also 100% recyclable.

It is heat-welded and can be built to be puncture-proof to prevent leaks. The Klymit NobleTek gas cartridges are tiny – about the size of your thumb – so they can fit easily in a pocket or backpack without taking up valuable space.
