- Oct 21, 2005This seems to be a much-copied thread, but I THINK I'm responding to Slowhike's comment/question.
If you are looking for a reasonably cheap source of synthetic hammock bottom insulation, consider watching for a 50% off sale at JoAnn Fabrics. Sometimes I see 40-50% off all quilting supplies, other times I receive a coupon for 50% off a single item. Sign up for their mailing list to get the sale info. I wasn't too excited about the quilting supplies until they began carrying Thinsulate....Cool!

Well that is interesting. I do believe it is the lightest way to get
effective inch-thick insulation.
rick... i`m planing to add 2 or 3" of insulation permanantly to a home made winter hammock, but i haven`t heard any response to a question i asked earlyer; if a tree falls in the forest when there`s no-one... oh...no, that`s not it! do yall think it would be money better spent to order some type of insulation(delta or something) rather than use the cheap stuff from walmart? i suspect i would end up w/ a better weight to warmth ratio, but i wonder how MUCH differance there would be. thanks...slowhike
