    Here's a question: I use a JRB Bridge hammock with a large NeoAir pad. Would a 2-3 layer IX quilt appreciably increase the warmth of my setup? I don't know how an air pad operates with insulation hung under it. I think it would work, but does anyone have experience with this?

    Yes it would work. More insulation = warmer butt.

    just made a 2 layer with a ripstop outside shell tonight.... came out nice
    11oz i tried it out and had a little CBS but other than that it worked out good
    the temp was 50F
    should make a good summer UQ i might open it up and drop in a oz of down to take care of the cbs
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I'd love to hear how that works out if you go for it. With no baffles, the down should just settle to the cbs area anyway, and as long as the differential cut keeps the layers separated, that might be a neat solution to boost this little rig.

    yeah that was my hope too... that it will settle down to the bottom
    i think it will fix the CBS ... i mean it wasn't bad ... i could have put my sit pad under my butt and be fine all night in the 40's my upper body was nice and warm just my butt i also thing the way i'm hanging it has to do with it... i think ti's too tight against the hammock i might put tabs on it and set it up for my WBBB since that is the hammock i will use it with
    but i will report back how it works out... i need to order some down anyway
    as far as my Diff. cut i think it's good i put my hands under me and it feels like i have a good 1-1.5 of an air gap in there
    didn't take long to make and was VERY easy... it's a great first UQ project for someone just starting out and it works i think with the 3rd layer i could take it to 35F easy ... but mine is for summer and will never see those temps

    Down wont do much of anything if you load up at the cbs area if you dont stop the air gap at the foot end. The head end seals nicely with no modification, but the foot? Nopes.

    In my experience the cbs is caused by the crease in the under knee area that makes a gap for heat to flow out and wind to flow in. A draft tube fixes this, see Scums draft tubes. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=41139

    It helped me get 10 extra degrees lower out of a 3 layer IX.

    Hope it works.

    Do you think the down will stay sufficiently distributed without baffles? I have an old down vest and I'm contemplating this as well...

    My CBS is not from air gaps.... i'm aware of the air gap problem .... mine was that it's only a 2 layer UQ so being it was in the high 40's i was already pushing it's limits ... that and cause of medical problems my lower back is always cold ... i know the air gaps were closed my legs were warm and my back just my butt was cool (cold might have been the wrong word)
    the goal of the extra oz of down is to see how far i can take the 2 layer ver of this quilt and for added warmth for my lower back area ...
    overall as is i could have slept fine ... but feel i can get a little more out of it with the down added in


    as for the other question from Boulderman
    i hope so ... it's not a big air space so an oz should be fine and it should all fall to the lowest point in the UQ so it should collect where i need it...
    at least it should i guess i will find out HAHAHA
