User Review: MSR Hubba
Design: 3 season freestanding with hub pole
Ease of Setup: easiest I have ever seen in a solo tent
Weight: approx 3 lb, 4 oz
Price Paid: sale-REI
This is an item with which I have a difficult time finding fault.
The tent is exceptionally easy to set up and take down. Shelter is adequate in space, including both height and width, for me in all intended conditions including heavy rain, especially due to the vestibule's size. I don't use it with my Western Mountaineering Puma -25F bag for example, since it's not a winter tent.
It's light and well-built. The stakes are excellent.
I felt it was best to add 2 Sierra Designs Grip-Clips to the lower margins of the vestibule to maintain its shape in wind and the fly coverage could be slightly greater at the head and foot- something reported to have been addressed in the HP model. I've sometimes had to fine-tune the fit of the fly to achieve waterproofing these areas of the canopy.
Summary: Highly recommended, especially for subalpine conditions. Up higher, I'd consider the HP version or a true 4-season tent.
