How much does it weight and is it good for hikeing trips?

Responded on

It is nearly 11 pounds. This tent although will work just fine in the summer, is made more for colder temps, and winter. It will do for hiking, but there are much lighter tents for that purpose

Responded on

It's every bit of 11 lbs. I wouldn't WANT to hike with it. That being said, I bought it for mountaineering adventures. So It (or parts of it) will be on my pack for at least part of the trip.
Depending on size/composition of your party and nature of the trip, it could be essential. In the Himalayas. It's standard issue. At Yosemite in July, probably not your best choice. But if you want to have just one tent for all adventures summer or winter - this one will last you decades... unless you throw it off a cliff in a fit of weighted down frustration.
