Four Layered Jerry Chair and nestable inserts
JoggerJohn said, " I am planning on using the Jerry Chair in weather temperatures mostly between 20 to 50 degrees."
MacEntyre replied, "2 layers is fine for 50 degrees Didn't think about this before, but if you put a suspension on the nestable inserts, they can stay on the hammock while you use the Jerry Chair to sit!"
I listened to the problem solving of MacEntyre.
Tnen MacEntyre asked, "How about this? For $20 more, I'll give you the third and fourth layers as nestable inserts, instead of sewn-in. I'll make them so that you can lay them inside the Jerry Chair and tie the corner loops together. When you don't need them, they can be left at home. I am planning on using the Jerry Chair in weather temperatures mostly between 20 to 50 degrees.
Those" 4 layers of insultex are fine for fine for 20 degrees. Yes, You will be the first to have a set of Jerry Chair inserts. Thank you, Nick!
....all good things should work,".
I am now waiting for the promised gear of the Jerry Chair.

Wow! That sounds like an extremely flexible system. Did he give you the weights for the 2 layer, 3 layer, and 4 layer configurations? How much did it cost?
The third and fourth layers are 3/4 IX UQ inserts which weigh nothing, er, I mean, about 2 oz each.
IX UQ inserts are $20 each.
