For what it's worth, when I was deciding, everything I read in other posts suggested that the wide version works better for ground use. If I had planned to use it for ground use occasionally but infrequently, I may still have gotten the regular to save weight and volume in my pack, but if I were going to be using it on the ground twenty percent of the time or more, I most likely would have ordered the wide. As it is, I do not plan on any ground use and ordered the regular. Good luck!
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
