Baffle Channel refers to a construction method used for featherbeds. The channels, created by fabric walls, can be horizontal or vertical. Typically, a horizontal channel is used to provide extra support for the lumbar region of the spine. Regardless of orientation, baffle channels allow the fill to loft throughout the featherbed, conform to your body when you lie down, and to stay in place as you move from side to side. It also lets you manipulate where the fill is placed, giving you adjustable support wherever you need it most.
