Do you know the weight of the rain fly that comes with this product? The description should say it comes with a rain fly as well. Is that weight already included in the disclosed package weight?
There is no rainfly included, with this tent. The Marmot Mesh Bivy has no rainfly, but weights under 1 1/2 pounds as it stands. I purchased a 5x8 siltarp and use it as my rainfly, the siltarp weighs about 7 ounces, so the tent will still weight a little under 2 pounds (with siltarp included) The siltarp is so small it easily fits inside the stuffsack with the tent. The entire tent packs quite small and light.
I live in the desert so this tent made sense for me(it doesnt rain often) all I needed was something to keep the bugs off me. This tent is perfect, sets up easy (althought it is not freestanding, you do need to stake it down) and it plenty big enough for one person and your gear. I really like this tent, it works very well!!
