Thinsulate is a high-quality form of synthetic insulation made from fibres that are around ten times smaller than other synthetic insulation. Because the fibres are so small, you get much more effective insulation with minimal bulk, which is why Thinsulate is often used to insulate gloves and low-profile insulating jackets.
BDry is a waterproof membrane used in Black Diamond gloves. It effectively acts as a barrier to stop water getting to your hands, which helps you stay warm and dry all day.
