Summary: The MSR Hubba Hubba is a solid 3-season tent made to comfortably fit two hikers and their gear. Set up couldn't be easier, but flaws arise in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Condensation and wind resistance are two major weaknesses with the HH.
Pros: Lightweight, Incredibly easy setup, Soft, non-obtrusive colors, Stays cool in the summer (with open vestibules)
Cons: Condensation, Saggy rain-fly, Weak in heavy winds, Gets stuffy (with closed vestibules)

Summary: I love the weight and compactability. Setting up this tent is a breeze and takes less than 3 minutes. Condensation is a wee bit of a problem, but nothing I can't deal with. Best uses are backpacking, canoe portage, and general camping.
Pros: Lightweight, Perfect size, Does well in wind and in climate weather

Summary: I am so happy with this tent. As a member of Search and Rescue, it goes with me everywhere, and stands up to the harshest conditions. It's never let me down!
Pros: Easy to assemble and take down., Light enough to carry anywhere., Very weather resistant., Perfect size for me and all my gear to be inside., Dual-entrances with vestibules., Plenty of headroom., Quick and easy to dry out before re-packing., Enough room for two people, while gear is stored in the dual vestibules.
Cons: Some say it isn't the lightest tent on the market, but I've never found it to be an issue.

Summary: I really wanted to test the idea of a three-season tent by taking it to Patagonia — the land of 4 seasons in a day. Now obviously MSR sells this tent as a three-season tent BUT I wanted to Max out its performance. Over a 178KM, I carted this lightweight 2-person tent. It withstood wind speeds well exceeding 100km, rain and snow. Its one downfall is also one of its most loved qualities. The pole design.
Pros: Light weight, Easy setup, Spacious, Perfect for warm weather
Cons: High wind will squish this tent. Storm or violent storm force winds (102km+), Heavy snowfall can be annoying
