This tent is not designed for campsite type sleep outs, it is an ultralight backpacking tent that is meant for those who trek deep into the wilderness and need a lightweight, high quality tent to rely on.

I brought this tent into some very harsh environments since I have owned it and the MSR Hubba Hubba handled everything I could throw at it. Death Valley, the Rockies and northern Alaska were just a few of the locations I brought this tent. I'm glad to report that the Hubba Hubba can stand up to very strong winds and handles a severe rain storm at high altitudes equally well. In my experience this tent is suitable for moderate winter conditions even though it is listed as a 3 season tent.

Weighing in at just 4 pounds and 20 x 7 inches when packed this is an ultralight tent that is good for anyone who is looking to keep their gear as light and compact as possible. The MSR Hubba is a breeze to carry along when hiking in the backwoods.

My wife's favorite feature on this tent is how you can put the fly half-on, and roll it up across the arch of the tent. This allows you to fall asleep while gazing at the stars, it really makes for a great experience.

At one time the pole set structure of this tent was prone to cracking at the joints. This was a problem that was common with earlier versions of the MSR Hubba Hubba, fortunately MSR has fixed the problem. My friends have told me that MSR has a very lenient return policy and will fix any broken merchandise no question, I have yet to confirm this.

I really like this tent and have been counting on it for a couple of years now. I have a 150 mile trip through the Rockies coming up, most likely under extreme weather conditions and its good to know I have gear that I can count on. The MSR Hubba Hubba 2-Person tent is something I can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking to buy a backpacking tent.
