    I guess I'm curious why you'd like a heavier weight fabric with a calandered finish? The purpose of calendering is to make the material down proof. And typically with quilts the general consensus is to go lighter, hence the popularity of sub 1oz materials (.66 membrane, for example). For a tough quilt, the calandered hyperd 1.0 is more than enough. I made a pillow out of that when it first hit the market, and it's been subjected to every abuse one could throw at a pillow, and its still going strong.

    I agree with hk2001. If it's for a hammock, uncalendared is better because it's more breathable.

    I made a hammock out of Double layer 1.0 hyper D and it is plenty breathable. Very nice and light too.

    I would like to have 1.6 HyperD with a calendered option, too. Why? Because I want to attach the underquilt (down) directly to the hammock.
