I use mine for kayak trips where size and weight does matter. It fits across the rear of the cockpit sideways and is short enough that it does not get caught on obstacles, tree branches and the like that I pass by. Has its own footprint which is a must for gravel bars. Does not get a 5 because the tie down pegs are near worthless in the gravel. Aftermarket pegs are much better.
I snap the rain fly onto the rear clips only so I can sleep "under the stars." I only put the rain fly up if it starts raining.
Overall I am very pleased.
