I ran across a total steal of a newbie backpacking tent at Target the other day, the Kelty Zenith 2. $60 and 5 lbs. From what I've seen and read, it's the Salida 2, but with heavy fiberglass poles. I don't see the weight listed at Target, but got it from the box. Not the best compared to the Salida 2 at $90, but the price is pretty nice if you're on a budget and/or time crunch.
It's heavier, but still light compared to some of the options you see at REI by the big brands. Always nice to have options for picking up something quick if a few friends decide they want to go backpacking with you for the first time, without spending hundreds on a MSR Hubba. :)
