    +1 what NCPatrick said. I would rather keep my vest in the hammock to help keep me warm for the late night tree waterings.

    I haven't used a down vest as an under-quilt, but I have used various items of insulated clothing to supplement a non-insulated undercover. It works pretty well, as the clothing finds its way to the bottom, which is where you usually need the extra warmth anyhow.

    Many folks make the hammock with a sleeve or pocket for their pads. I don't see why you couldn't make a pocket for your vest, just leave it a bit baggy so as not to compress the down too much.

    That's called a Clark Hammock, isn't it?
