Anyone with this bivy know if the 20" rectangular pads will fit? I measured and I don't think so but I figured I would ask.
I have been using the BA IAC mummy but the wife is getting into backpacking which gives me an excuse to pick up a new pad so I have been looking at the 2 new BA SL options - Air core and Q-core which both come in mummy but there are more options for rectangular.

I have the ptarmigan and just picked a BA q core. I will test it out tonight to double check that it all fits for you bbrown. Get back to you around 5

I have the bivy, and it seems pretty roomy. Never put a pad inside it though.

I use one with a custom down air mattress that is 20 x 72 x 3.5. I'm 5'11" tall and it works fine.

Hey bbrown, sorry it took so long to get back to you. Anyways, checked it out last night and it fit fine, tighter in the foot box than my previous pad but no comfort issues for me.
