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?
