HeiQ XReflex is an innovative radiant barrier technology that allows products such as outerwear, midlayers and sleeping bags to maintain the required level of warmth while reducing bulk by as much as 50 percent. With an ultra-thin reflective surface applied through a high-tech vapor deposition process, the technology reflects the body’s radiant heat, increasing thermal resistance and allowing maximum breathability. Matched with a specific insulation, the combination creates optimal heat retention. A savings of 25 percent in bulk can be expected with one layer; with two layers, the bulk can be reduced by up to 50 percent while maintaining the same level of thermal resistance.
