I'm thinking that this aerogel stuff could be really useful in hats.

If your gf has hairy legs or a 70s style bush you take take the Coolzie and rub it all on there to burn it right off. She might not like the scarring though.

Hey mrchad9, do you know if this Coozie thing has chemicals in it? If so, I feel bad for all the little Chinese kids who work in the factories where these are made.

Looks like he took something he made at JR High recess, photographed it near the molding on his mom's bathroom sink, and is now trying to sell it on SP. No thanks.......but I hear there are users with multiple accounts on here who are looking for gently used condoms for sale. You can find them perusing ebay for used SLCD's.

Did you see the picture of these things? The only person whose lungs are being destroyed in the manufacture of this product is the author of the OP.

Chinese kids would have put together a much more sophisticated looking product. The Coolzie is made by 3rd graders in a garage working on motor skill disabilities.

my 3rd grade niece with motor skill disabilities (crouzon syndrome) is insulted that you think she would turn out something so sloppy.

$416 raised... only $29,584 to go!

Anyone want to pay $29,000 for a nalgene holder that disolves human tissue?

I would like to thank SP for this whole thread - just the thing to pass the last few minutes at work on a Friday. But sorry, I won't be buying one, I've already got an OR bottle parka, and I suspect that with the lid, it'll work better than this aerogel stuff. And, of course, the toxic, scarring, kill-you-dead warnings put me off a bit...

Higher the R value the better, lower the thermal conductivity the better.

Do you have results of testing of your product?

I understand how rigid aerogel can work in a solid sheet.
I understand how silica gel can work as a filler in a vacuum bottle.
I do not understand how rigid aerogel can work as a part of a flexible blanket/cozy.
It seems like a marketing gimmick. It should work worse than thermoinsulating materials designed to be flexible like dawn, neoprene or closed cell foam.

only if afterwards i can [legally] spray the contents of said dissolved tissue on obnoxiously noisy campers when i'm out in the sticks. because even at that price, sometimes it would almost worth it.

Funny, abehzadi is still a member and signed in on 6/5. He's still following this thread I guess. Hoping the content will change?
