1. Nothing breaks up a stressful day better than a siesta in the outdoors. There are days when you just need to turn the Blackberry off and achieve nirvana. Quilted hammocks are the low-tech answer to the high-tech world.
2. Sometimes you really start snoring. You might be so fully relaxed that you don't realize your cell phone, iPod, and wallet have all fallen through the mesh of a traditional hammock and into the damp grass. The sturdy weave of a quilted hammock keeps your little items where they belong - off the ground.
3. Hammock season doesn't have to end just because the leaves are changing color. In fact, this is when a quilted hammock is at its best. With all that stuffing, there's more here to keep you warm.
