Packaged weight is listed at 5 pounds 5 ounces.  Are you adding a 1-pound poncho in case the fly leaks?  I don't think I've ever added anything (except maybe rain or dew) to any tent I've carried beyond what the manufacturer shipped.

To surlyboy's question, John Nelson said it well.  It's not too heavy and it's not stupid-light, you should do well with it.
We all decide what we want to carry, based on its value to us.

This is a two person tent, with dual doors and vestibules.  The weight seems to be in the realm of of what a tent of that nature weighs.  If the tent proves to be too heavy, then the obvious choice is a solo tent.

   Bogiesan, thanks. I use to race and was a bit of weight weenie then, but now weight is not so much of a concern. I ride for fun and fitness, and recently caught the touring bug.
