The article is actually well-researched and has external links for more scientific details from what are pretty reliable sources. The article itself is an easy to read summary. I know that I, for one, would tl;dr the original sources which is why I linked to the article. If you want to call bullshit you might want to take the time to read them.
The only article in your original post here was the backpacker one, with the Q and A format. That is the one I was referring to.
As for the article you edited in, I would not collect that snow at all.
If you are in fact talking about the fish net base layer article, I need only read their comments to see that they are clueless. No offense to you, but they demonstrate a lack of understanding with regards to the garments they were talking about.
