User Review: MSR Hubba
Design: three-season: freestanding
Ease of Setup: Like cutting warm butter
Weight: light enough for me - backpacking
Price Paid: $200?
This is my first solo tent and I am very impressed with the space (6 mos.- Two coastal trips). This tent feels very large and has tremendous headroom. Not sure how it would stand up on a windy day as it is rather tall. Easy to set up...rainfly works great with footprint as shade too.
Only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the vestibule is pretty small...barely enough room for a 4500 pack...and the stakes are worthless (too small) unless you have some good soil to put them in. I was recently camping on river stone...and just used rocks to hold the tent down...no big deal...just the difference between 4 and 5 stars.
Great ventilation. I haven't used it it rain yet...but am a little concerned that the rain fly does not extend closer to the ground. Overall I am very happy with this tent and have not seen a better one for my 3-season California needs.
