Weighs 5lbs 3oz when packed with the footprint (included!). The tent body is not required to set up. You can combine the footprint and the rainfly for a lightweight options. Great ventilation with the No-See-Um mesh and bathtub floor combo!

This tent isn't super heavy or bulky, so it will work well for short to medium sized trips, but it also sports a very durable water proof rain fly, So you wont have to be worried if bad weather rolls in.

Comes with a rainfly and a footprint that can be used without the tent body to save space and weight when backpacking.
