Tubeless on the mtb, not on the road bike, nor the commuter yet. As long as the 2-3 oz of sealant is fresh (still a liquid for ~6 months), your puncture flat protection will be greatly improved with tubeless. While replacing my sealant last week, I pulled multiple thorns out of the mtb tires, that were perfectly sealed.

I always bring a tube, and small hand pump with me, just in case I get a hole larger than the sealant can handle. Hasn't happened yet (knock on particle board).

If you've historically been pardoned by the God of Flats, then tubeless may not be for you.
