  • Summary: I've owned this tent since 2006. Great product, no leaks, well ventilated. However, I had the same problem with the fly (melting) reported by few reviewers. So, since my tent was still in good condition, I looked for a replacement fly. I saw on a local dealer web site that MSR have changed their fly and the the coating on the fly is less prone to melting. I contacted MSR to ask them if the new fly will fit my old tent and to know the price for a replacement fly.

  • Summary: I was glad to read oaeaglescout's comments about how the rain fly on the Hubba Hubba became sticky, because the same thing happened to mine. Even though when I returned it to REI they said they'd never heard of this happening before. The seam sealant even started flaking off.  The whole thing was rapidly degrading.  It was a mess.  I'd only used the tent a few times before this started happening, so I was extremely disappointed.

  • Summary: Yes, I know how wonderful this tent is and I would have given it 5 stars easy a week ago but after checking it out after not using it for a season or two I found the rainfly to be very sticky on the inside. The tent has always been put away nice and dry and stuffed into a large cotton storage sack in a controlled storage room so that should not be an issue. The problem is at MSR because my Missing Link tent from them has done the same thing.

  • Summary: I purchased my MSR Hubba Hubba from HumbleOutdoors for $237 w/free MSR Footprint MSR really perfected this design, which has yet to be surpassed by (nearly) any other tent manufacturer (possible exception: MSR Hubba Hubba HP 2-Person Tent). The hub pole is simple and lightweight, making set up a breeze. The fine mesh allows for great ventilation, further weight shavings, and excellent star gazing on nights without the rain fly.

  • Summary: Have had this tent since 07, several trips in VA, NC ,TN, OR, CO, WA all kinds of weather from hot and humid, heavy wind and rain, to waking up in a virtual igloo. Very good 3 season tent, easy / quick set-up. Haven’t had the issues, with high winds that some other folks suggest, but I tie additional guidelines to pull the fly taunt. That said, it has held up in monsoon weather pretty well, with just a little moisture seeping thru the floor. I also use the footprint.

  • Summary: Having read the great reviews for this tent I felt comfortable in my decision to get it when REI had it on sale for $250. The following day I left Portland Or. for a solo road trip to the Olympic peninsula in NW Washington for nine days.  The first three days up on the coast and in the Hoh rain forest it DUMPED out with 20 to 30 mph winds.

  • Summary: My girlfriend Ms. Webster had this tent as our home for 2 months of hiking. It was more than adequate for both of us an our small dog. Many nights we "half-flied" it to watch the stars and were able to get the fly up at the first sign of rain. I've used in many times since and still haven't had the opportunity to explore all of its versatility. I highly recommend it!

  • Summary: Probably one of the best 3-season tents I have ever owned. I’ve used it several times now including twice in early spring on Emory Peak in Big Bend. It holds up great in rain and hard wind. I like the entire mesh top, opposed from the HP, because on nice nights you can view the stars without being bothered by insects. It's the closest thing to being tent-less.

Pros: Lightweight; two doors; freestanding; fly very waterproof; generous headroom; can be pitched fly first; can be used without fly or without inner; nice pegs; non-drip vertical doors; plenty of room for 1 person + gear and adequate for 2 people (head to toe).
