GREAT IF YOU'RE A LITTLE SHORTER
Good insulation, comfortable, packs reasonably small. I am not a woman (though some would larf!! and disagree?), I am a 5'8" chap and I got this for the bit of extra insulation over the pro 4 regular. I didn't want a 3/4 mat but not the full length 4, this seemed the happy medium, and it is. I love it, I can live with the 'girly colour' as long as I get a good sleep. Its really about 5cm short to fit me fully but hey, sleeping bag hood with a pillow in takes care of that.
As above I got mine from the US, keep an eye open on ebay at Mickies place, they regularly have TM's on there and regularly have FREE shipping, even to the UK, they mark it as a gift and if you're lucky enough not to get caught with duties then you can get it for around £46 + around £4 quid Post Office handling charges. Mine ended up costing me £54. Ive ordered loads from then and everything has turned up (as long as you can wait around 3 weeks for the free postage, its snail mail).
It doesn't come with a stuff sack
Great, get one if you want comfort, reasonable weight for that comfort, at worst you will get at least your money back for it on ebay if you don't like it.
I wouldn't be without it now. As a p.s the stormsheild small compression sack fits it great. (extra weight I know but it protects it and keeps it tidy).
It fits in my AKTO smashing.
