Does anyone know anything about Thermal Goggles/Scopes? I heard right wingers talking about wanting to use rural camouflage against us.

sure, if you have like 15k to burn. very few people even own NVG's and thermals are substantially more expensive - I wouldn't worry about it. moreover, a space blanket lined with some insulating fabric can assist with hiding. the taliban just use blankets when they are in a hurry

I have no idea what exists on the lower end of the scale, including older technologies. Where I'm at, a modern chip putting out 50hz with auto non-uniformity correction is going run you ~$7000 while goggles are about double or more (collimation and bridging gets expensive). I am in Canada, but you don't save much in America either.
I actually got a chance to demo PVS-31's with clip-on thermals - great stuff, but very front heavy and bulky. Whiplash injuries with advent of helment-mounted NVG's has always been a problem and it's going to get worse unless more effort is put into reducing size/weight. Iirc Act in Black of Luxembourg makes some of the lightest, durable dual-tube NVG's today. The very high-end shit from L3 uses a small, integrated germanium lens which solves this, but access is limited to super sekrit government work.
As for the space blanket, you actually don't need much space at all - just enough insulative layers, the Mylar and some kind of adhesive (Velcro) to prevent the layers from separating.
