    You're not missing anything. Trust me, being a bit under 5'7" and having a 6'5" guy set the pace on runs and marches really brings home the advantage of a longer stride.
    And you probably don't need a folding stool in your kitchen for reaching the back of the top shelves, either😠

    In a normal kitchen, no I don't need the folding stool. However, I live in a traditional New Orleans Shotgun home and they have 12 foot ceilings.

    My trail name was almost going to be Giant Steps, due to my lanky stride and being a musician.

    I've never understood torso length pads. Ok, I understand even full-length pads are not very comfortable and cozy mattresses, but anyway, it is at least possible to sleep on them.

    If your feet are cold, you will be cold.

    I can't remember the last time I owned a full-length pad. The pack for my lower legs works fine. I would agree that if a person is a shelter baby they probably should use a full-length pad. I say this because if sleeping in a shelter the pack would probably not be empty so wouldn't work as well for the lower legs.

    While I've never tried a torso length pad, as a side sleeper who often has to flip from one side to the other, I can't imagine laying on two different surfaces keeping things comfortable for a full nights rest.

    I had a torso length but my hips always started bugging me after a couple of nights.

    I started with a torso length but couldn't get used to having my legs at a different level. Propping them up on a pack just wasn't the same.
