I decided to get these slippers because my wife got a pair of the Emu Stingers and I saw how comfortable they looked. Th slippers are quite comfortable, but they do not seem to be made with the same quality sheepskin as the boots are made from... it is not as plush. If it matters to anyone these are not Australian made like the boots, they are Made in China (what isn't made there these days). If Backcountry gets the Emu men's Stinger Mini's in stock, I will be considering returning these slippers and exchanging them for the Stingers as they seem like they would make a much more comfortable slipper.
As for the size, I am typically between an 8-9 depending on the brand of shoe. Everyone on here that said the slipper ran on the small side had me nervous but I went with an 8 and they are actually a little loose (but a smaller size wouldn't fit.) So IMO I would say they are true to size.
See my review for the 480R Rapid Traverse Foot pack which is used in conjunction with these bars. Make sure you check what size bars you need, because will the Rapid Traverse you have to get the size specific rails.
First ever aftermarket roof rack system I have bought. At first I was overwhelmed with how to install it but I found a video on youtube and it made it a lot easier to understand. The instructions Thule includes are not very detailed and kinda hard to understand in my opinion. Once I got the hang of it it was quite simple. The only pain is the measuring. It was a little difficult to judge the tightening tool which is supposed to tell you when its at the right tension, because I thought I had it right but the Rapid Aero cross bars looked like they were bowed in a little, so I loosened them up a little and they seemed to unbow. Now I can't wait to get my kayak stacker up there and get in the water.
