      Hi dunangus73, This is the kind of thinking that
      will lead to a solution. What I would say is "Hybrid"
      thought. Make you Jumpsuit with a mix of Down and
      Packing Peanuts, the Down to keep you warm and the
      Packing Peanuts to keep the Down from compressing. Do
      I think the Packing Peanuts would work, that is not
      the point. I do think if there was something you could
      mix in with the Down so it would not compress flat
      your idea might work. The Packing Peanuts like stuff
      could be your first test to see if the idea would
      work. Then maybe you could find something better to
      use that would provide the bulk necessary to let the
      Down work. I will try it if you don't want to. Bill
