The weight for comparing tents is the Minimum Weight. Since comparing tents is the main use for tent weights, manufacturer’s standardized on one way to do it that doesn’t penalize anyone for giving more stakes or guylines or owner’s manuals or any extras like that. It drives us manufacturer's crazy knowing that some people are thinking one tent is lighter than another (based on "Packed weight" or something like that) just because one has fewer (or flimsier) stakes…and so on. For a fuller discussion, see the Tent Weights page.

For the usual carry weight of our tents you add the Minimum weight + stakes weight (assuming you take all 12) + stuff sacks and so on. For example, on an ML2 that's 4 lb 5 oz + 6.3 oz + 3.1 oz = 4 lb 13.4 oz

* As a reference, the one tent in the car-camp market most generally similar to the MoonLight 4+ is almost 13 pounds. The most comparable tent in the ultralight backpacking world is about 6 pounds, but it uses nylon fabrics, is smaller, and has bare-bone features.
