Default Laptop Cooling Pad

Hi guys,

I've been scrolling the forums for some time now, but first time posting (obviously), love the helpful community here.

I've got a Gigabyte Aero14 with a GtX1060 and as you can imagine when I use it in bed or my lap it heats up pretty quickly and fan whirs up. While I plan on going backpacking in a few months, wanted an easy solution for at home and on the road.

I've come across the Gigabyte Roll Pad and thought think that it would be the perfect solution. The aluminium construction should be a good heatsink as well as keeping it elevated and the intake vents on the underside kept clear. It is also great that it could roll up for easy stowing.
Only catch is, I can't find it for sale anywhere.

Is anyone aware of any supplier still stocking it, or an alternative?
Is there a reason that it might have been discontinued (other than it costs the same as a fan powered pad)?

Thanks in advance!
