I have done a couple of reviews of the MSR Hubba Hubba 2 person tent that I am going to post on here today. It is a great little tent that is really light weight and easy to carry in a small pack. You have the option of running it with the fly only if you want as well so it can become even lighter if you don’t mind the bugs getting at you.
The first video is the unboxing and initial setup and walk around of the the tent and the gear shed.
The MSR Hubba Hubba is a freestanding, single pole tent, that is designed for two people to fit in. The packed weight of the tent is 4 lbs 8 oz, which is really nice and light. The roof is high enough that you can easily sit in the tent without hitting your head (peak height is 40 in/100cm) and it has two doors so it is easy to get in if someone else is sleeping in a little later than you. There is plenty of room for your packs, especially with the available gear shed attached, and it has a vestibule on both sides. They have changed the waterproofing on this model from (I believe) 5000 mm Durashield to 3000 mm Durashield but after sleeping though a rain storm it was still dry inside so it didn’t compromise the waterproofing.
The second video is an in field review of the tent after it had been raining for most of the day and snowing the day before. It was a good test of the quality of the tent and it passed with flying colours.
Overall quality of the MSR Hubba Hubba is great, as it stands up to everything I have been able to throw at it. It would be a little chilly in the winter because a large portion of the inside is no-see-ums bug screen but it would be a good 3 season tent for and search and rescue member.
