My take... Minimal differential on synthetic. Top layer of a synthetic quilt and insulation should be lightly held against the hammock bottom by the outer layer to fill gaps and minimize drafts.
On down, the top layer fabric should be held against the hammock bottom and down should be allowed to puff out to fill gaps and minimize drafts..
