They really aren't that small though. I suppose the newer "hex" shaped inners do impinge a little on the porch space. But how much porch space does one need? The average Hilleberg (single porch, non GT models) doesn't have any more total porch area really? The XMid inner is very narrow for the real estate the whole thing takes up? I have had one for a year, but have only used it 8 nights so far. I like it, but feel it's nicer just as a tarp. But so is the Notch. Not getting rid of the Notch though as reckon it faster to pitch, smaller footprint, and more windworthy.
