Has anyone used Katabatic 2?  What is your opinion?  It's little on the heavy side.

I can't find the weight on the website? It's a double wall 4-pole dome so it's never gonna be light. Is it heavier than the usual Trango 2 etc..?

I had the old one which looks more similar to the latest Katabatic 3 (6 poles), it's a bomb shelter. My main beef with buying EB products is they're totally useless in terms of support. I bought it from eBay and it had a clip missing. I went through multiple representatives and nobody could get me a spare (I wasn't asking for it to be free). If you buy directly from them they might just offer you a new tent, but I wasn't impressed. There's nobody in CS at all familiar with their mountaineering products.

I could only find the weight in their YouTube video, around the 1m20s point.  "About 9 lbs".  youtu.be/6ofVpwP_1Rs
