and i agree with you both. (and the rest of you that said the same)  i 
have slept on more things on my thermarest than you can imagine; rocks, 
pinecones, sticks, bigger sticks, logs, the back of trucks, sandstone, 
picnic tables (hey it was dry and flat :0) etc.  it never fails to give 
me a great night's sleep.  your only question is, "do your feet get cold 
easily?"  if they do then get the full length, and if they don't, then 
get the 3/4.

another great thing about the thermarest, is the thermarestR.  that's the 
little cloth setup that they (thermarest co.) put out that makes a chair 
out of it.  it's great.  well worth the weight again.

sleep well.
