Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

LOVE IT!! How's that for a positive review? Got the chair today and set it up both in the living room of my GFs apartment and out in the grassy area. Very comfortable, rocks a little, but other reviews about it sinking down in the ground are spot on. So, I thought a set of 3" round furniture floor sliders might work to spread out the weight a bit and prevent it sinking. Seems to be working fine as of this writing.
As far as the chair goes, even my girl liked sitting in it. The only really bad thing about it is getting up. if you're on the large side like me, it's not easy getting up, but the frame seems strong enough to support pushing lightly on it as a way of steadying yourself to get up. But man is it comfy.

The bag it comes in is another surprise as it has a row of webbing on the outside to attach things to if you want. And, the chair inside the bag is quite light. They claim 2 pounds, but it doesn't feel like it. But, weighed my gf 's kitchen scale, it's almost exactly 2lbs.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

My pug hates to put it on, but once it's on he's OK with it. It does help keep him cooler here in Texas, but once the temp is at or over 100 it doesn't help as much because his head gets hot. But it does allow him to stay outside for more than 5 or 10 minutes as long as he's in the shade. He wears the XS and it's the perfect size for him. the only complaint I have is the connector buckles are waaay up under a flap of fabric and it's a little difficult to snap them in place with wet or damp hands. Otherwise, great vest that we both highly recommend!

you can use a trekking pole, or guy it out to a tree. There's a web loop at the top rear of the bivy which allows you to use any kind of pole-like support, or a guy rope to keep the foot top up off you.
