Before I bought it, I had read some negative feedbacks about this product. Maybe all complained about that it was hard to install. But for me, that is OK. It takes me less than 5 mins to install for the first time and another 5 mins to fold it. I think it is acceptable.It is a little bit weighter than 5 pounds, but still very light.Anyway, I think this product is Ok. But if you want to get a more comfortable cot, I strongly recommend you to get a airbed.
