The trail weight (2lb 15oz) of the Meta 2P is the weight of just the tent body. The packaged weight (3lb 9oz) is going to include the stakes and waterproof stuff sack that is included. The Meta 1P has a trail weight of 1lb 15oz, and a packaged weight of 2lb 8oz.

I own the Meta 2P and love it. It packs small and is very light weight even for a solo hiker. I'm 5'11" and have plenty of head/feet room, so if you are shorter you will love the amount of space. If weight is more important than to you than space, go with the Meta 1P. I actually opted for the GoLite Shangri-La 1 fly and nest, over the Meta 1P, because I like the versatility of it.
