Default getting first splitboard

This season I've started getting into snowshoeing/climbing/mountaineering. I really want to combine that with snowboarding and get into backcountry boarding. None of my backcountry friends snowboard (they all ski ), so I'm thinking I'll be needing a splitboard if I want to keep up.

I need help figuring out what length splitboard I should be getting. I'm 5'4", 145lbs, size 8 feet. My in-bound boards are a 151cm and fast/skinny 154cm (where I still sink in pow… but that's cause it's only 23cm wide). Would a wider 154 be okay? 158 too long? Is the only difference in sizing that I'll be heavier because of a backpack?
