I like mine, but it was extremely labor intensive to get it the right shape so there were no air gaps but it didn't compress the down insulation of my hammock. One big plus for insulated socks is that you don't get air leaks from kicking the TQ off when you adjust position during the night. LD Cakes helped me do a video of my system
last year. The sock was made by quilting Climashield between shaped panels of ripstop, then assembling the panels, then repeatedly modifying with strategically placed darts. I like the top-center zipper.
