      Righ, Deb, we talked about this before.  A quilted hammock bottom would probably work wonderfully if the hammock fabric were extra strong, ie heavy.  In fact, I've recently seen one at Sam's Club (backyard version).  Greg, it could be done for backpacking, but at the cost of extra weight and the hammock would only be useful now for winter camping.  It's an intriguing idea and I hope to work on a design in the future...Ed

      The problem with that, as I understand from Ed, is that sewing baffles
      to the weight-bearing fabric of a hammock, can lead to weakness and
      fabric failure.  It's a great idea otherwise.
