Yes indeed, no argument there. And the sun was a big issue over there. I was a bit tight on weight and what I wanted to take anyway so I only had my hard case which I wasn't keen on lugging around the mountain.
I have an odd looking heat resistant cover off an iron board that I sometimes use here at home to keep the sun and rain off mine. I wish I HAD taken that with me.
