-only partially unfolding it and kneeling on it to start a fire, etc
-stand on it in the morning to get dressed and not get your feet/socks dirty before you put your shoes on.
-stuffing it under your sleeping bag if there is a spot/rock you can still feel through a normal sleeping pad.
It is not super thick so don't expect to be a couch cushion, but I wanted something light, low maintenance and that would hold up to dirt, rocks, twigs, etc. That is the main reason I went with the z-seat and not a self-infalting seat, the Z-seat will never pop, doesn't matter if you puncture or tear it. I am about 5'11 and 225lbs and I could feel the difference, especially after a full day of hiking. To keep it folded I just borrowed one of my daugther's hair bands I saw laying around, I didn't want to use string or a rubber band as I didn't want to cut into the foam. The hairband has worked great.
Another great secondary use is as a trail marker. The yellow/silver one is not reflective, but it is highly visible at night- so if you need something to mark a fork in the trail leading to your campsite, just prop this up against a tree.
I would hunt for these on sale or at outlet stores, as $20-30 is a lot of money to spend on a butt-sized piece of egg-crate foam (high quality foam, but still... it's a piece of foam!)
My favorite seat cushion is the Therm-A-Rest Lite, which is cushier, softer, and overall better than this pad, as long as one does not mind an inflatable (which can have some downsides if punctured on the trail, I know). I own about six Lites, and wanted to try this just for something different and that would hold air for the rocker. I'm glad I did, but I would buy the Lite again from here on out.
