Summary: I’ve owned this tent about 5 years, been on several trips Overall this is a great tent! This tent is freestanding and sets up fast, weight a little over 3 lbs. The only two concerns I ever had with this tent is condensation in the Northeast, however out West I’ve had no problems. The other concern is the rain fly when wet due to dew or rain it takes a long time to dry.

Summary: MSR has had another great success with this tent. This tent is excellent and has exceeded my expectations in the outdoors and on my back! I have used my tent 5 different times in different weather conditions. I got my tent as a Christmas gift and used it the next week in East Tennessee. We arrived at night and it is sooo easy to set up at night thanks to the yellow reflective cord. That night, it was below freezing and had very minimal condensation.

Summary: I have the Hubba Solo and I love it. Sets up fast (2 minutes) Free standing Lots of headroom Lightweight (about 3 lbs including fly and footprint) So far has been totally durable—no glitches, bad seams, bent poles, etc. Good for desert in summer to treeline Rockies in early winter.

Summary: i have used this tent on a few occasions and have had great results. the tent is freestanding which is a plus. my biggest fear is how it would set up in the rain but i had no problems with leaks and found i was able to stay dry and cozy through out. no condensation either. my only concern is that the hooks on the stakes are a little small but overall the design of the stakes are great which sorta makes up for it.

Summary: Will simply add that this a well-designed lightweight solo tent. Just used it in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The tent (properly staked and tethered) withstood 70 mph gusts. This was documented. Tent deformed significantly, but poles and fabric did not fail. Only con on this tent is that the backside vestibule is inaccessible from inside the tent and in very hard rain some splash can get on the backside mesh.
Summary: Have you been sucked into the ‘light-weight kit is the only way forward’ zeitgeist yet? If so then you’ve probably already thought about buying this tent or already own it. I do a lot of fell walking in the English Lakes and the odd spot of wild camping too and this tent is an essential bit of kit. It’s my third, and by far the best, single man, light-weight tent I’ve owned.

Summary: This is a great tent. Freestanding, single pole, lightweight, tall. I am 6'4" and fit in it. Obviously it is not spacious, but I can sit up comfortably in it and can lie down fine with a bit of room at my head and feet for my junk. The one complaint I have is about condensation. This is a problem with every tent, but I was a bit annoyed just because the time I used it I was using a sleeping bag that was almost not warm enough and wanted to keep the doors closes.

Summary: This is a fantastic tent...and my first 1-person model. I am 6'3" 250+ lbs and I sleep and dress comfortably in it. It is cozy, for sure, but it absolutely works....much better, in fact, than many larger or more expensive tents. Gotta love the side entry. Primary use has been in the Sierra Nevada above 10,000 feet in July and September...a place where you are sweating wearing shorts during the day and putting on everything you got including down at night.

Summary: This is an item with which I have a difficult time finding fault. The tent is exceptionally easy to set up and take down. Shelter is adequate in space, including both height and width, for me in all intended conditions including heavy rain, especially due to the vestibule's size. I don't use it with my Western Mountaineering Puma -25F bag for example, since it's not a winter tent. It's light and well-built. The stakes are excellent.

Summary: This is my first solo tent and I am very impressed with the space (6 mos.- Two coastal trips). This tent feels very large and has tremendous headroom. Not sure how it would stand up on a windy day as it is rather tall. Easy to set up...rainfly works great with footprint as shade too. Only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the vestibule is pretty small...barely enough room for a 4500 pack..
