User Review: MSR Hubba
Price Paid: Christmas Gift
MSR has had another great success with this tent. This tent is excellent and has exceeded my expectations in the outdoors and on my back! I have used my tent 5 different times in different weather conditions.
I got my tent as a Christmas gift and used it the next week in East Tennessee. We arrived at night and it is sooo easy to set up at night thanks to the yellow reflective cord. That night, it was below freezing and had very minimal condensation. The tent is easy to get in and out of with gloves.
The next time I used it was on a spring backpacking trip in the Great Smoky Mountains in early June. It is light and roomy for extra footroom or for gear. The vestibule is large enough for boots and a foldable chair and some other stuff. If the weather is nice, leave the doors open and you will have no condensation.
There are four pockets and are very useful for headlamp, hothands, bandana or Buff, wallet, keys, or watch. There are four gear loft loops that you can hang a lantern or whatever with a 'biner.
Other people have said that the stakes are crap and such but they are fine if you don't put them through abnormal use like hitting them with rocks or hammering on them with your stake next to a tree and hitting tree roots. Then they might break.
Some others have complained about bugs getting in between the fly and the mesh, but that is normal. When you put the fly on, the bugs get caught, or at night the bugs get attracted to your light and get stuck.
This is by far the best one-man tent that you can buy. Don't hesitate to buy it. The MSR Hubba will not let you down.
