      Does anyone know the specifications of TNF Nuptse blanket, apparently built
      for Chevrolet as part of their TNF branded trailblazer?
      Nothing I could find on TNF site about it. Anyone know what materials were
      used, and whit the type and amount of fill was? IS the current batch on
      ebay a buy at ~$50 delivered?
      Thanks
      Rick
