For those who are truly obsessed with ultralight gear, space-age materials, and technical designs, we offer the Mojo UFO. Made with the insanely light and virtually indestructible Cuben Fiber, the Mojo UFO weighs a scant 1 lb, 11 oz and will stand up to just about anything you can dish out. Folds up into a unique, ultralight Cuben Fiber envelope instead of a stuff sack.

"Why so heavy?"
Why so expensive? is the real question….that is over a thousand dollars more costly than most other cuben tents.
I guess I'm not extreme enough =(Jul 17, 2013 at 9:40 pm #2007274

I notice it has sewn seams and the cuben appears to be the standard (non high-bias) kind. Ron at MLD, Joe at Zpacks, or any other cottage company that uses cuben could custom make this tent for $600.
I met a guy from Boulder who sold fake colored glass "obsidian arrowheads" and other "artifacts" for a living. He swore they were real (and very ancient), and he had many identical ones. Sierra Designs is headquartered in Boulder. Just saying.Jul 18, 2013 at 1:19 pm #2007407

Mojo UFO, 1 lb, 11 oz – $1,799.95
Hi-Tec V-Lite, 1 lb 10 oz. – $26.95 (That's what I paid, but that was on sale)
For those who are truly obsessed with ultralight gear, space-age materials, and mass produced designs, I offer the Hi-Tec V-Lite. Made with the insanely light and virtually indestructible polyester and nylon, the V-Lite weighs a scant 1 lb, 10 oz and will stand up to just about anything you can dish out. Rolls up into a unique, ultralight nylon stuff sack instead of an envelope.
I used it on the JMT last year, and because its slightly used I'd be willing to part with it for $1699.95, a full hundred less than I would otherwise ask but the Tyvek groundsheet pictured will not be included. If you are truly obsessed with ultralight gear, you will Paypal me the money and I will ship it off by tomorrow. Shipping is free.Jul 18, 2013 at 1:22 pm #2007408

That pack doesn't look very ultralight. And carrying a shelter that "will stand up to just about anything you can dish out" isn't very ultralight either.Jul 18, 2013 at 1:32 pm #2007411

"That pack doesn't look very ultralight."
No, it doesn't. But looks can be deceiving when it comes to pack weight (we discussed it in a thread late last year). This pack was carried by my 11 yr old and was filled only with his clothes, his EE quilt and pad, another V-Lite tent (not for sale), his ditty bag, a few other things. Believe it or not, the only time it got above 14 lbs was when he had to carry extra water and was usually closer to 11-12 lbs. Dad had to carry the bear canister….
"And carrying a shelter that "will stand up to just about anything you can dish out" isn't very ultralight either.
Not normally, but this is a Hi-Tec V-Lite! OK, it leaked a bit at the seam during some thunderstorms, but you can always seam seal it and otherwise it will stand up to just about anything you can dish out. Besides, if I said otherwise, no one would pony up the dough to buy it from me, and there goes the funding for my next thru-hike.Jul 18, 2013 at 3:45 pm #2007439
