I'm not much on gimmicks and often wondered about a sheet designed for an air mattress. Why not use an old sheet and simply wrap it???
I was somewhat intrigued and caught the gray universal sheet on sale. With BC's return policy and excellent customer service, what do I have to lose, right? Well, I was pleasantly surprised! The grey sheet not only "custom" fits, it will fit both the 66" and 72" NeoAir as well as other pads I own. The adjustable strap on the back allows for easy adjustments and cinching. The material is soft after the first washing and feels good next to the skin. No more stickiness on the Neo! Although a good product for car camping, I would not take this along on a backpacking trip or elk hunt where every gram counts! Try one out for yourself!

I've been a Marmot fan for several years. All the Marmot gear I've owned and used has been great with certainly no exception to their sleeping bags. I will not get into the history of Marmot down bags, but let me just say they are innovators and stand behind their products. They are also the oldest customer of W.L. Gore in the world outdoor market. Now onto the bag...
I wanted to get a women's specific bag for my gf and ran across this. All I can say is wow! She absolutely loves it! The EN rating for this bag is 19 F which is equivalent to my Lithium O F.
She tested it on a trip to Palo Duro Canyon in which the temps dropped into the lower teens with high winds. She never complained and was in fact warm. "...sleeping on a warm puffy cloud". We both recommend this bag (women specific). Forget the generic "unisex".

This is my go-to bivy for fast packing and "bonsai" elk hunting. It weighs in at just under a pound and is completely reliable. I have used it and found that Marmot's Membrain fabric breathes well and is totally waterproof.
I have not had problems with the condensation that plagues many other bivy bags. The zipper arrangement makes it easy to stay tied into your anchor, and it's easy to rig a "drip" loop.
This bivy enhances the warmth of your sleeping bag by a few degrees and has been warm enough to sleep well.
Good bivy for alpine and big wall routes, as well as just camping out. I highly recommend it.

Hard to beat for the weight/comfort combo with the Primaloft insulation. I've used the standard original NeoAir and various other pads as well as Exped SynMat UL 7 and the NeoAir XLite. Either one saves me about 10 oz., but also costs considerably more money. This is a nice pad to use during archery elk season on through late fall, early winter. Nice for the price! I highly recommend this and the updated version from BA.

I still own and use the original NeoAir as well as many other designs and brands of sleeping pads. Some are better than others depending on the environment and temps. The Trekker is no exception.

I was looking for the "perfect" pad for my gf, knowing she is a side and stomach sleeper. This virtually eliminated most pads.

The 2.0 R value is more than adequate for the type of environments in which it will be used. If not, she can always throw down an extra closed cell pad.

The Rectangular shape has more area than mummy shaped pads. It is more durable than all of my other air pads, inexpensive, and more comfortable than Exped's vertical baffles and Nemo's horizontal baffles as well as Big Agnes' grooves(very slippery too). I highly recommend this pad in either the older version (if you can still get your hands on one, Everglade) and the newer Pistachio/Seattle Gray.

I like the BRIGHT colors, (got mine in purple) so I won't mix up whose is whose or lose the spork in the depths of my pack. Easy to see and find. The hole in the handle is handy for hanging or threading a small piece of cord for an extra handle! It will not taint the taste of your food and the NON-paint coloring uses Electric Ionization Process to chemically bond pigment to the titanium for a safe vibrant color. Over time the color may break in and fade with use as you scratch and wear down the titanium, but it won't rust! I highly recommend it!!!

I was looking for a down bag that was warm and be light enough to pack. I currently have a Marmot Hydrogen that is used during early archery elk hunts with great success, but needed something for late season. The Lithium is part of the Ultralight Series family from Marmot so I thought it would be a natural. So far, I've not been disappointed! It is certainly one of the warmest bags I've ever used.
One well-designed part of this bag is the hood pull cord, which remains comfortable even fully cinched. Most other sleeping bags place the cord on the outside edge of the hood (it's easier and cheaper), but this is uncomfortable when the hood is fully cinched because the tight cord smashes up against your face. Marmot does a great job addressing this problem.
If you are looking for the warmest 0 degree bag with a comfortable hood, stuffed with 28 ounces of top quality 850+ fill down, light weight and stuff-able, this is THE bag! I highly recommend it!

Jordan, yes it should. However, keep in mind you will need to visit the Yakima website and start with Fit My Car link. This will select the type of clips, towers and accessories designed to fit your vehicle with or without factory mounted roof rack. The only issue you might have is having to remove your roof antennae. You also might have an issue with the hatch touching when fully raised, but only when you have accessories attached.

Towers appear well built and designed. Make sure to order specific clips for your particular vehicle. As Chad stated, check out the Yakima website. Also, order a package of SKS lock cores for each block. Order more than you need as you will add accessories later and will want the same key for all.
