Lynx, hi - yes, currently using the flip case as my main case.
As to bulky / heavy, I suppose it depends on what you're used to. Obviously nothing is going to be as light and carefree as a naked Kobo, but having fallen asleep reading on quite a few occasions with my Touch, only to be woken by the sound of a bouncing e-reader, I'd personally rather have it slightly bulkier and still working.
I'd say this specific case is about the same weight as my other book-style case (see my photos above), and lighter (and significantly less bulky) than my Touch case with the built-in light.
In fact, one of the things I particularly like about this case vs the other two more book-style cases I've used is that when the front cover is flipped over it is completely flat to the back cover - so there is only about 3/8" of cover behind the Glo, and the whole thing including the Glo is only about 7/8" thick. Maybe that sounds bulky to you, I don't know, but it's much slimmer than my Touch case.
And, as you say, it stands up by itself for those can't-be-bothered-to-hold-it moments...
