Yep, there are tradeoffs in that, especially when its windy. But, if
you are sweating enough to accumulate a pool of water, reduced
insulation might be more comfortable... at least while the insulation
was enough to keep you warm. I don't think it would take away most
of the insulation, you would have some fabric on at least one surface
(and maybe both) and that would slow down some of the air flow.
If you look at the Thermarest self inflating pads. What they did
with some models is to use either solid sheets of open cell foam or
sheets of open cell foam that have some of the foam removed by a die,
much like a cookie cutter. The solid foam provides more insulation,
while the die cut foam has reduced weight and pack volume for the
same thickness pads.
