Lightweight at 0.4 lbs and when folded, has a small footprint of 4.5" x 7.5" and an 1.25" thin (and that's just loosely sitting on my desk). I ditched the small drawstring bag in came in and stuck it right in my tent bag so everything is together.
Easy setup: at each end corner, there are grommets that match up with the tent. There are also loops at the same corner so you can line those up with your tent to stake it all down. Because the floor saver is so light, it'll blow around easy on its own so I would set up your tent and then lay down the floor saver, plop the tent on top of it, pop the poles into the grommets and stake it all down.
The bad: Not much to complain about here but there are two things worth mentioning.
#1: The floor saver only fits under the portion of the tent you would sleep in; it does not provide a floor to the extended vestibule. It would be nice to have a little something when you have to put your bag or boots (or feet in the morning) under the vestibule on a rainy night. Not a huge deal though and not enough to knock a star.
#2: It's a little pricey IMO for what you get but again, it protects the bigger investment and all insurance is expensive right?
With my other tents, I typically use a tarp to throw under them for both an added vapor barrier, and to protect my tent floor from sharp debris. This floor saver fits the tent very well, and is much lighter than my tarp, great for backpacking. It is also great that it fits completely under the rainfly, preventing it from pooling water and water logging the tent during heavy rains.
For trips where weight is not an issue, I would recommend instead using a good quality tarp and using that to add a little better insulation. A tarp is also nice as it adds a nice clean floor area for gear/clothes to be layed out under the front awning.
Time will tell, but overall very pleased with the tent itself.
