3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation – Premium insulation for hats and gloves

Our original Thinsulate insulation is one of the warmest clothing insulations on the market‚ yet still thin enough to allow wide-ranging freedom of movement.

Softer‚ more compressible

Thinsulate insulation is soft and compressible. This makes it flexible enough even for accessories like hats and gloves‚ which are difficult to insulate effectively without restricting movement or compromising fit. This makes Thinsulate insulation great for providing warmth in your gloves‚ hats and other accessories for skiing‚ snowboarding‚ hunting‚ hiking snowmobiling and other active fall and winter sports. It also comes in different gram weights to provide the right warmth for your activity. Use these guidelines when selecting your hats and gloves:

Recommended grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation for hats and gloves:

  • 40 gram* for high activity levels or cool conditions
  • 70 gram* for moderate activity levels or cold conditions
  • 100 gram* for light activity levels or very cold conditions
  • 150 gram* for very light activity levels or extremely cold conditions or specialized applications requiring additional warmth

* Grams per square meter of insulation

Look for Thinsulate insulation hang tags on hats and gloves from these brands.


Easy Care
Home washable‚ won’t get lumpy or fall apart like other types of fill.
Thermally Efficient
Thinsulate insulation microfibers are about ten times smaller than the fibers of other synthetic insulations‚ which means they’re much more efficient at trapping air…and more effective at keeping you warm and comfortable.
