Lets just say it gets the job done. Certainly isn't five star comfort, and three star might be pushing it. I've used it on numerous trips and my biggest complaint is its just to damn big and not comfortable enough. I have found the only way to carry it is on the bottom of my pack which can be a pain. It is possible to sleep on light gravel, somewhat comfortably, but if on ANY sort of uneven terrain, it will not mitigate the contours what so ever. I would only recommend this to ultralight hikers, but its just a bit big.
