FLScouthanger: I don't really know the pros and cons about the way the baffling runs. I decided to run mine across because I thought it would be easier to stuff down in a 48" chamber rather than a 60" one... That and the chambers on my sleeping bag run perpendicular to my body, so I was kind of using that as a guide as well.[/QUOTE]
Man, that thing is a monster! Wouldn't be surprised at all if you can get down to 0 with it--especially with the 4.5" of loft. I was just curious on the baffle directions. I think I have seen some comments somewhere around here alluding to the possibility of the down settling in the lower areas of the baffles when they are perpendicular to the hammock. However, I've never tried one in that config so I was wondering if it does, in fact, happen. Regardless, I'm thinking CBS has just been removed from your hammocking vocabulary!
