I'm sure this has been covered before, but I couldn't find much in a few searches.
Here's the deal:
I just got the BPL pack, and while I like it a whole lot, it doesn't have a ton of space. The sleeping pad I have now is a size small Thermarest Z-Lite, which, unfortunately, takes up a ton of space.
I haven't trimmed it at all, so it's at a full 10 panels in length. I'm about 5'9, and wondering if I need the full pad, or can trim down some for extra room/less weight. The pack already has a frame, so fitting it into a pad holder isn't an issue.
