User Review: MSR Hubba
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Aus$350
Excellent space for a solo tent, the steep-sided vestibule is far more usable than many lower-profile tents. Free standing, lightweight yet not fragile, a perfect blend of features.
- Usable space,
- Ease of setup
- Very hard to fault
- Could have slighter lighter materials, however this would effect its durability.
This is an excellent solo tent, a design that has been perfected over several versions, and copied by other manufacturers. To my mind it represents the ideal compromise between being lightweight yet not fragile.
The vestibule is very, very usable, free-standing with only a single peg needed for either side of vestibule, ventilation is excellent, and in cold, damp conditions the new V6 fly material seems to breathe so much better than the fly of my previous MSR Zoid 1. Unless you're well over 6ft tall, sitting up in it to change clothing etc is easy due to the cross-brace head pole, which maximises the tent's height.
Yes, there are lighter solo tents out there, but their durability and usable space simply can't match the Hubbas.
