11 lbs for 3 person, and not even mentioning how much 2 person weights or material that they are made of.. but they do mention that it has 2 doors and comes with repair kit and pegs.. most important stuff i guess..

The two person version sells for $161.08 at Campsaver. com, so this does seem like a good price. Weight is listed on that other website as 4090 grams, which (someone check my math) works out to be 9 lbs. That's heavy for a two person tent. Pole material is 7001 T6 aluminium so that's a plus.

Rain fly and tent floor claim to have very high levels of waterproofing (4000mm and 10000mm water column rating). I'm used to seeing something on the order of 2000mm and 4000mm, respectively. That amount of waterproofing, if true, would make this a very weather resistant tent. And would certainly account for some of the extra weight.

Seems like a good price for a good quality, if somewhat heavy, tent.

Also keep in mind that the 3 person (in a different color) sells for $130 and change at the mothership...

The 9lbs weight (shipping weight) seems accurate.

Yeah, heavy, but not awful. And if you (can) ditch the fly, it's really not too bad for a 2-3 day trip.

I would put this in the car camping only category if that weight is correct. I can't recall a 2person tent with aluminum poles that weighs 9 lbs. No idea how it's that heavy. My Mountainsmith Morrison 2p has similar materials and is 5lbs.

I agree. I couldn't find a weight either. On the fence.

I'm looking for a light tent for a scout for 40-50 mile trips. What's a reasonable weight without breaking the bank. Maybe around $100?

100 is too cheap to find a tent that won't be around this heavy. But for 150 there are many, many tents that would work albeit still be a bit heavier than I would like to carry. You need to up your price range or lower your weight standard.

If you decide to compromise on the price, your back will thank you

I'd suggest renting the tent if this your first time. A 40-50 mile trip doesn't sound like a first time camper, however. So I may be confused. I bought tents when I was excited about backpacking, their still in my basement, having been used once or twice.
