A few of these materials are well recognized, like  Thinsulate, a very thin type of insulation, that uses a polyester layering technique that allows air to be trapped inside, yet does not allow cold to penetrate from the outside. Thinsulate is used in jackets, hats, gloves, and even sleeping bags. It’s one of the most well recognized names in the cold weather clothing industry.

Or sometimes it is used inside a fabric to reflect heat back inside the fabric.
