Thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth.  I carried the Ultralite for most
of my thruhike - found it quite comfortable - carried it on the outside of
my Dana pack the whole way - no problems - and I fell more than once or
twice.  What's the problem with carrying it on the outside of one's pack?
Also had no durability problems with it. Interesting how everyone has such
different experiences with the same gear.
