My Windfoil Ultralight weighs just over 5 lbs on my kitchen scale. That
weight includes tent, fly, poles, cord, pegs, the two stuff sacks I use
instead of Kelty's bag, and the loops of shock cord I tied to the fly :-)
I don't have the latest model, but 5 lb, 14 oz seems high to me.
All the same, even at 5lbs, the Windfoil Ultralight is heavy for a solo
tent. The best things about the Windfoil Ultralight are its length (if
you're tall), and its cost (mine was $99 from REI last spring).
