I don't bother to do deflation hedging. I think the US has proven since WW2 that given a modern large government presence in the economy and plenty of political will which we have in spades deflation is just not going to happen. They don't call Mr. Bernanke Helicopter Ben
But if you want to hedge, long term straight treasuries are the way to go. Cash is better than many things, but S. T. interest rates can fall very low- though given enough deflation, still positive on a real basis. You would want to to stay away from anything other than US govt debt to hedge against US deflation.
