IT looks to me a bit like styrofoam, which, if you could isolate it from flames or serious heat, would be a pretty good insulator for very little weight.

I think it looks like dense closed cell foam.

Nice pack by the way! grin

I think it's a giant matzo that somebody nibbled at the corners then decided it makes a better stove pad. And who could argue?

Cheers,

It's a giant Christmas cookie and Duane has been nibbling at it! Talk about multi-function gear!

OM, smile
Sorry, did not list the material. Real Styrofoam, hot pad fabric, acrylic paint to maybe seal the pad, multi use as it is painted orange, so a signal device in case of ?, Automotive Goop to glue the material on. 13F Sunday AM. Waiting for a good snow dump of course.
