          Thanks for the info on this pad.  As an ultralight hiker I would seriously consider buying the small 48" x 20" Therm-a-Rest Neo.  Good warmth (2.5 R value), ultralight (9 oz), and ultra comfy (2.5" thick).  Too bad the price is so high ($120). 
           
          In comparison, I used the Montbell UL Comfort System 90 pad to do the JMT in 2008 and had good results.  It is a 35" x 20" x 1" thick self inflater, weighs 10 oz and costs $59

          The Bozeman Mountain Works TorsoLite is also another good option.  It's a 32" x 17" x 1" thick self inflater weighing 10.4 oz and costs $69.
