<<Define small. ;) It's 10 ounces, and that will get me under 25 pounds

In the case of a tent vs a bivy small is up to 2 pounds : ) Small to me
means the amount of comfort, enjoyment, convenience and satisfaction I
derive from a product more than makes up the extra weight that I have to
carry. for example stretching, rolling around while sleeping and all the
other goodies that you can't do with a bivy that you can with a tent is
worth the 2# that I would have to carry for a tent.
A book. Weighs maybe 6 ozs for a paperback. But over many nights it gives
me much pleasure and enjoyment and definitely worth the weight.
