The wakan weight listed is for the two.
Wakan are also designed for the local conditions here, where, for the most part, snow is very wet and very deep. They wouldn't work very well in dry snow (like up in Hokkaido). Walkers here interchange what they use, between wakan and snowshoes, according to the weather and conditions. The wakan certainly wouldn't stop postholing in dry snow, so in those conditions people here use snowshoes. The wakan work very well on steep terrain, though, and the lack of webbing between the struts is part of what gives them better grip in the steep snow.
