I give this 4 stars only because it's a bit perplexing. It's listed as a kit and it's implied that you'd buy it in this configuration so you could stain and assemble it yourself--but mine came fully assembled with the straps installed, exactly as pictured. I had to disassemble it before finishing to prevent getting stain on the straps.
That said, it's a great product, and for those of you who are wondering, it weighs 4.1 lbs with the straps but without the blanket. The pocket blanket adds an additional 1.6 lbs for a total of 5.7 lbs.
