I found sites claiming this is 4.5 pounds, but found mine to weigh about almost 5 pounds, with the poles being broken down to 24".
As this is going to be used for short backpacking trips, I decided to make some upgrades. With aluminum poles and tent stakes, it should come in about 4 pounds and reduce the length to 18".
UPDATE: I reduced the weight to the claimed 4.5 pounds with the above-mentioned updates. I also found that there is no footprint for this tent. However, Kelty formerly made a tent called the Eden 2. This footprint can be found for relatively cheap ($10 + shipping on Amazon) and fits perfectly, the grommets of the tent matching up with the grommets of the ground cover. Enjoy everyone.
For a back packing tent I am surprised they went with fiberglass poles, they are a bit heavier than the Salida2 that came with aluminum poles but the process is the same. Lay the tent out and cross the poles in an X over the tent. Put your poles in the attachment holes and attach center clips. Goes around and finish clipping the tent to the poles. Fast set up and the rainfly attaches to the tent with clips and then has its own stakes for the guy lines. If you are familiar with Kelty products you will be able to put this up even in the fading light of dust. If you are backpacking with a friend, you can split the weight of the poles, tent and rainfly and stakes between your backpacks. The poles are longer than the Salida2, I have included a photo of poles next to the shorter aluminum poles of the Kelty Salida2.
Let up is really easy. It goes up like a traditional popup tent, but the poles are not inside a sleeve. Instead they connect through J hooks on the outside of the tent. This makes setting it up very easy. You can sleep without the rainfly as the entire tent for the most part is made of think see-through mesh, but you can easily add the rainfly. It sits on top of the tent poles and then connects to the tent via plastic clasps. Very nice as you don't necessarily need extra ropes and stakes to secure it.
The rainfly covers the entirety of the tent. The front can be pulled out and staked to leave a vestibule. Protected from light rain and the outside, but still not in the tent. Great for your boots or a pack.
The back has a flap that opens to allow better airflow. The corners of the tent have sturdy lashing straps to connect guy wires.
It's a well constructed tent, though the bottom feels a bit light compared to other tents, we'll see how it holds up.
My only real complaint is that it really doesn't' roll up that small. Though it's light, when it's rolled up and put in the carrying bag, it is very large. Again, not heavy, but large. It takes up nearly half of the space inside a 45 liter pack.
It's a great tent, comfy, super easy to put up, and with some neat features. This can easily be my favorite tent for my two kids, but still feel it's a big large for backpacking purposes.

While purchasing I forgot that I don't like stakes... I do LOVE the amount of mesh for the gorgeous texas nights, mostly for peace of mind.Read more
