I used a Thermarest on a thru hike in 93. Never had a problem on the trail, so I recommended it to my girlfriend. She blew it up and it delaminated. Made a big blister-like bubble on one side. No longer useable.
I chose a 3/4 length and carried a blue-foam (closed cell type) sit pad for my feet at night. The sit pad was nice to break out in the day.

And I have an additional question to all who have used Therma-Rest
successfully on the PCT. I had neck surgery that makes it pretty difficult
for me to make hard-foam alternatives workable for me.
1. How did you manage or prevent the easy puncturability -- which apparently
really comes into play in Southern Cal?
2. Was there an easy way to find the leak & patch on the trail (hopefully
not involving immersing in water)?
I know that Eric the Black apparently uses inflatable pads -- so it must
somehow be do-able.
