did not squish it. I need to do the same now with down. Lighter, warmer
- Rick, I have the materials to do my own warmhammock and wanted ask you, did you sew the baffles perpendicular to or parallel to the length of the hammock? From the picture, it looks like they are parallel to the hammock. Just wanted to be sure.

Thanks for your interest.
The successful design I have completed is to quilt Polarguard II between an
outer layer and the hammock itself. The quilting is done with quilting ties
about every 6 inches. To read something about this method, see:
The important thing is to make sure the outer layer is a pouch, not a flat piece
of material. I describe on the page how to do that.
I have built a down warm hammock as well. It was my first version. I did not
"pouch" the padding and it just draws up tight against the hammock. I now
realize I can build a successful down insulated hammock with baffles, but I have
not done so yet.
The version I did make has baffles parallel to the long edges of the hammock.
I hope that is possible to understand?
