If you go to a web site like REI-they have all the weight specs on their tents. I've noticed some web sites differ a bit on their specs when comparing the same item,so don't always take what you read for the tents weight as "gospel" truth. That's why I'm showing my gear on a scale. Also note I have my tent as well as the "footprint"and a stuff sack which adds a little more to the listed weight of the tent that you'll read on a web site.
In backpacking & climbing the saying is "every ounce counts". I'm not as concerned on my bike,but if your conscious with all you carry-I'm sure it will make a difference. At least that what I tell myself every time I buy something
Am considering the Hubba hubba and a few others. Thanks for the good info
