I haven't had a chance to test it yet so all could be just fine. Its not really cold enough here in TX yet anyway to tell if its working well or not.
Loft is a by-product of down ..
what you are talking about is "air gaps" in between the layers
from what i take of it the air gaps are not going to be very big you will not tell unless it is hanging on a hammock since IX does not Loft like Down will
hang it on your hammock and you should tell then if there are air space in between the layers
