Weight clarification

The weight listed here is minimum trail weight. ALPS Mountaineering lists the "Tent and fly weight" as 7lbs 4oz, and the "Total weight" as 7lbs 13oz.
My luggage scale says 7lbs 14oz for the tent, poles, fly, stakes & sacks. I also measured the poles and stakes at 2.1lbs, the fly at 2.3lbs, and tent(w/o poles) at 3.4lbs.

I find that this tent would have room for three. I understand the feeling expressed in other reviews though; but I'm used to sleeping in smaller backpacking tents, i.e. BD firstlight with 2 people is cramped. For car camping this might be small, but the two doors minimize disturbing your mates and tons of mesh windows should allow it to vent out your buddy odor.

Overall, this is an affordable three person "four season" tent under eight pounds.
