Backcountrygear says that this pot has a tent weight of 8 ounces.

I really wonder what that means.

Bob, I can confirm the weight. I've used mine as a shelter on occasion. It's truly freestanding and I have not experienced any misting.


Regards,
Jacob.

(but good find on a nice large pot!)

I have had one for several years and the kit weights are as follows:

4.25 oz. for the pot
2.2 oz. for the stock lid
1 oz for the lifter.
The rest is probably the stuff sack, but I don't use it.

I use a foil lid @ .2 oz. and a .1 oz. cuben sack from Zpacks.com, so my total is 4.55 oz.

It is a fine snow melting and group pot.
