I've used this with MicroSpikes solo hiking the snowier/icier sections of the early-season PCT in southern California and with crampons in a wee bit of mountaineering here in BC. I'm 5'10" and got the 70cm because that's what they're now recommending for everyone in the latest edition of Mountaineering: the Freedom of the Hills. This is just one of the best tools of any sort I've ever used; it does what it's supposed to, over and over and over again: no drama. I moved here from back east where you don't need this sort of equipment, and it's been a real confidence booster on the knottier terrain out here.

For backpacking, I have a Big Agnes air core and a Big Agnes insulated air core. When I go car camping with my wife, we each slip one of those into one of these. (The foam pad, obviously, is meant to go on top of the air mattress, not under it!) We are both side sleepers, and the combination is as close to a bed as either of us has ever slept on inside a tent. As someone else said, despite the weight and bulk, I've been tempted to tote this along even for backpacking. It's that comfortable.
