No problem. I haven't been in any hurry since it's been summer. Now all of a sudden it's supposed to be in the 40's Saturday night. I'm just doing a simple top quilt. Let us know how that insulated hammock works out.

PreQuilted PrimaLoft One
Also on the OWFInc.com website they offer ClimaShield Continuous Filament (which as I understand it is PolarGuard 3D, but they cannot use the name)
Of the various types of insulation what are the Pros and Cons of each? Is there an article I can read? Maybe I should start a new thread.
Please help a guy understand what it all means and how to chose the best insulation for a given circumstance.
ClimaShield Combat is XP, just a different thickness/weight. It comes in three weights 2.5, 3.7, and 5 oz/yd. I was reading some threads but it's not helpfull because they say things like "I used two layers of climashield" which is really meaningless without specifying the weight. I read lots of info on CLO, etc. but there's really nothing but personal experience I guess because one persons 32 degree quilt might only be a 50 degree one for someone else. I ended up just going by AYCE's description for the 3.7 ("At 3.7 osy, its CLO value is 3.7* 0.78= 2.9 which places it at right around 32 degrees.") and I'll see how it goes.
