MontBell claims sub 6 oz for their umbrella.


But I don't see it in silver.  You really want something to reflect sun.

We bought this one: http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/ 
Product___90601 and this page claims 8 oz, but I would be surprised if  
it weighed that much.  I've hiked on a very hot day here in So  
California and it did help a lot.  Since I use trekking poles, it was  
awkward.  Some here said they had a way of mounting it...
