It indeed flips, and it is astonishingly light. But the hinges, narrow top tray, handle, and feet are all plastic. Note that the Little Giant CEO is on camera in one of their notorious infomercials saying "rubber grips, plastic slips."
The runs are spaced a ladder-standard 1' apart, which is a pretty big step down when descending the ladder. I don't feel as confident on this as other step ladders for this reason. Plus, the rungs on my old rubber-footed, Target-bought, steel-frame step ladder are all almost as wide as the platform on this one, whereas the treads on the Little Giant are maybe 3" wide. They're also textured aluminum, not rubberized.

Relative to the Gorilla Hybrid ladders, the Little Giant are way more expensive; spread out wider at the base, making them harder to position; have smaller feet, making them more difficult to use outdoors; and keep your toes 5 inches further away from a wall if pointed that way (14" for the Little Giant vs. 9" for the Gorilla). The Gorilla also have 2 platforms and an additional step.

Since there are no rungs above the platform, the 5-foot ladder is really a 33" ladder, and the 6' ladder is a 45" ladder. In all, it's a seriously expensive way to get your feet less than 3' (5-foot model) or less than 4' (6-foot model) off the ground.
