Oros launches winter wear with aerogel insulation

A new brand of American winter wear has hit the market and claims to provide the best insulation.

Oros, an apparel firm based in Cincinnati, has introduced a clothing line produced of aerogel, a foam made of mostly air and either silica or carbon, which insulates better and doesn't rub off on the skin, according to media reports.

The firm's winter garments features SolarCore aerogel which is what NASA uses to insulate its space suits.

Oros is using this technology to manufacture jackets, gloves, and hats for cold weather conditions. By lining certain parts of the apparel with flexible aerogel, which only absorbs a minute amount of heat, the clothing is able to better retain the heat made by the body.
