Pitched by Jon Rosenberg, founder and CEO of Cold Case Gear.
Cold Case Gear utilizes aerogel insulation to make a line of unique insulating products. Our gear keeps your food from freezing or melting, your water from getting too hot or turning to ice, your electronic devices alive in the cold, and it even keeps isobutane fuel canisters from turning to liquid. Our product line is perfect for backpackers, hikers, skiers, photographers, hunters, or anybody who spends significant time outdoors.
If you've ever been hungry on a hike and tried to eat your Clif bar only to find out it was frozen solid, Cold Case Gear makes our products to solve problems like this. Our gear is ultralight and ultra insulating.
Right now, we're crowdfunding for the Aerogel Pouch. Weighing in at a scant 80 grams, The Pouch is extremely lightweight and won't take up much room in your backpack. The aerogel insulation carries an R Value of 7. Compare that to a closed cell foam pad that only has an R value of around 2. You can clip The Pouch onto your backpack, harness, sled, or anything else. The exterior is made from a waterproof nylon and we include a water resistant zipper to really block out the elements. The 2.2 Liter volume is large enough for:
- Water filter
- Canon/Nikon/Sony camera battery
- Cliff Bar
- Bag of trail mix
The Kickstarter campaign ends on Aug. 30.
