-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!)
