No personal experience, but if I didn't already have a <3lb tent I would have bought one to try out.

Edit; Ben, thanks for the info. Most sites show it as 2/14; one at 2/4; and those both seemed really light for the framework in the pics.

Brett:

Eureka is notorious for lying about its tent weights. Folks should add half a pound (more or less) to convert stated to actual.

I have encountered posts saying that Eureka stats are accurate, but those are relatively few as compared to the ones who complain otherwise.
