Default Lightest Float tube?

I'm planning on spending some time in the mountains this summer and was wondering what the lightest float tube is, if I can find one light enough to add to my pack I might have to bring it along. Last year at the Fly fishing expo they had one that was very light but I dont remember the brand name, it even had a backpack for storage and carrying... not that I would need that but it might help identifying it.l

Here is one that is a couple of pounds heavier and breaks down pretty small...you could get it its own back pack...they also have a tube carrying system with back pack straps on the bucksbags.com website...I know they used to be a good name...2 pounds more and a lot cheaper...

I have a few Sabe tubes but I think they are out of business now...my tubes are 6 lbs including pump They also have a split middle so you can wrap it around instead of stepping through...they are great for light and round tubes.

Easy to pump up also.

Good looking out guys... I think my current one weights 8-10 lbs. It doesnt seem like alot until you are about a half mile in and then it feels like a bear jumped on your back. The one I saw at the Fly fishing expo last year I want to say weighed 3lbs, found a couple sites that recommended Del Canty's Lunker Hunter... but they stopped making that a while ago.
