Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this as a bikepacking shelter, and I want to love it, but can't figure it out.

Here are the advantages:
1. It's very light
2. It packs super small
3. It's somewhat waterproof (I live in the PNW, so rainstorms are a fact of life.)
4. It's cheap

Disadvantages:
1. I'm 6' 1", and it only comes up to my chest. Shoulders & head are unprotected.
2. No room for my sleeping pad.
3. No bug screen.

I've been wearing a bug net and draping a garbage bag over my head and shoulders to overcome the disadvantages. Bottom line: If it rains, you will be wet.

I'm torn between my frustration with its limitations and my appreciation for its packability.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

These are my go-to gear for bikepacking, commuting & hanging out. I even wear them in hot weather to avoid sunburn on my knees. Lightweight, fit well, and super-comfortable. The only problem I've found is that the crotch seam is splitting out (no big deal - I'll take them to my local tailor for a fix).

Please, BC: May we have more color options?
