7.65 oz for mine. I have no problem with the drop off since I use my pack under my lower legs, but I could see how a larger person could find it like ice skating on top of a barrel.

Re: WTB _ Titanium Windscreen for 700 ml Mug
Our windscreen for the 550 ml mug should fit the 700 ml. It's about 1.5" longer than needed for the 550 ml. Just depends on what stove you use for the height. If you use a tall stove ours ...
