My current system is an 8'x4' (96"x48") cut piece, with whipped
ends. The 4' width works great for me, but after many nights in the
8' length, I've determined it's just a might bit short, mostly
causing tightness and compression of my feet over the course of the
night. It's tolerable, but an extra 6" will probably make it
perfect. I'm 5'10" tall, so take that into account when you compare
to your own needs/desires.
