Boxwall construction
The only single-layer constructions which do not create cold spots along seams are the "V", "trapezoid" and "boxwall" designs. The baffles in each of these designs do have sidewalls to keep the insulation in place. There are no "lines of cold" as a uniform thickness of insulation is present throughout the sleeping bag. The simplest is the boxwall design. The baffle sidewalls are vertical, hence the baffle shape is box-like.
On the top side the trapezoid construction gives better performance than boxwall.
In the sleeping bag base, however, the insulation value of the down is much reduced because it is compacted by the weight of your body preventing loft. The effect of this compaction far exceeds any disadvantage from using a boxwall construction rather than trapezoid. Furthermore, your body weight prevents displacement of the down - which is another reason why trapezoidal is unnecessary for the base.
Boxwall is lighter than trapezoid, which makes it a better option for the base.
Differential Fill
Differential Fill means that the quantity of down in the base is less than the quantity in the top of the sleeping bag. At Criterion they employ a ratio of top:base = 3:2 (discounting the hood, neck and zip baffles). Hence the base has 40% of the total insulation instead of the 50% it would have if there was no Differential Fill. The compaction of the base restricts loft and reduces its insulation value so the difference in warmth between 40% and 50% is quite insignificant. On the other hand, having 60% in the top gives a big warmth benefit compared with having 50%, since no compaction means that the extra down traps a fully proportionate extra quantity of air and loft is increased by a fifth
