  • Climashield APEX reaches new heights in combinations of weight and thermal efficiency. Developed from a culmination of over 25 years of manufacturing experience, this innovative insulation is the lightest and most thermally efficient continuous filament insulation on the market today. Like other high-end synthetics, it also maintains warmth in wet and humid conditions.

    Due to it's unique continuous filament construction, Climashield APEX requires little to no quilting. This makes it easier to work with when compared to other synthetic insulations that require quilting panels to avoid shifting/migration. Great for sleeping bags, outer wear, and quilts. 

    Chimashield APEX also delivers superior warmth at lighter weights with its unique, continuous filament properties, reducing the overall weight of a sleeping bag, jacket or pair of pants. Climashield APEX insulation is highly compressible and maintains thermal efficiency even after multiple uses, being stretched, packed or washed.

    For additional information, please read more below or visit the Climashield website  HERE.

    * Sold by the linear ydjust like fabric . For example, entering a qty of "1" gets you a 36"x60" piece.

    IMPORTANT  - Due to size and packaging constraints, our  standard max continuous cut for all insulation is 5 yds. If you're ordering more than this and need specific cut lengths for your project, please  put a note on your order  with cut instructions. We're happy to work with you to make things work :).

Apex 5.0 Under Quilt

I bought a the necessary materials for a 30 degree under quilt and followed directions. I couldn’t be more pleased with it

APEX Quilt

As expected.

Apex Insulation

I really like this stuff, easy to work with and seems true to temperature ratings. Light too!

Very user friendly, very warm

This is my first project, adding insulation to my daily wear winter jacket. It came with 80g/m^2, which is entirely inadequate for Canadian winters, and this brought it up to 250g/m^2. Climashield is incredibly easy to work with, in marking, cutting, and sewing by hand, and I imagine even easier by machine. Needs absolutely no quilting, and running locked stitches through all the layers spreads load well. The two sheets between which the insulation is sandwiched hold the material together well, preventing bunching and wear, while allowing the added insulation to slide over the original without getting caught. The only downside one should possibly be aware of is the loft-to-insulation ratio; Climashield is very thick, limiting the amount you can pack into a garment practically. Materials like Primaloft (warm) or Thinsulate (thin) are much more dense, perhaps making it possible to make this coat a 350g/m^2 where Climashield limits me. But these materials, I read, are far more difficult to work with, and arguably won’t last as long. Ripstop-by-the-Roll delivered the insulation in one square sheet, folded over and vacuum packed, which was both convenient and easy to work with. I’ve genuinely been recommending both the website and Climashield to all my friends whose jackets aren’t built for -40°C (all jackets and parkas)

good insulation

After witnessing a friend struggle and cry over down quilting I opted for this for my own quilt. Very easy to sew with regular presser foot, walking foot is not necessary. I very much appreciate this products ability to store compressed down.
