MSR Hubba Reviews
Reviewed by Dave Stocks (Todmorden West Yorkshire) on 2006-09-29:
General comments: I have owned the MSR Hubba for the past year and it has performered brillantly every time i have used it. It only weighs 1.6kgs which isn't much for a one person tent and it is very spacous. You actually can sit up which makes getting changed easy and not a struggle like in all other 1 person tents. The main feature I'm looking for in a tent is a good porch and until now I thought it was impossible to get a lightweight summer tent with a porch big enough to cook in. I was wrong - the MSR Hubba has a porch which is big enough to use a MSR Dragon Fly Stove and also a weeks worth of food and water bottles plus shoes. I no what your all thinking surely this can't be true but it is. The tent is a single pole but it creates a free standing structure so pitching is easy with only 6 pegs and i have even pitched it with only 2. The inner tent has a bathtub ground sheet and netting side walls with two pockets.
Pros: Bright and easy to see colour looks cool. Light Weight. Different pitching methods. Quality Pegs and Poles. Reflective Guy Ropes. Massive porch for this type of tent. Descent sized inner got me and girl friend into it.
Cons: Needs a two way zip. Needs a guy point on the front

General comments: Nice, well constructed tent. Good for one person with a bit of room for you gear. Nice and well ventilated with heaps of mesh. Great options for pitching tent and is very stable. Taken on a few trips mostly during summer months as it gets quite cold in winter sleeping in it. Design with centre pole increases interior size.
Pros: The Hubba is stable in most weather conditions. Easy to pitch with pitching options such as fly only.
Cons: Not to good in winter as it has a lot of ventilation.

General comments: For one man tents, I think the MSR Hubba is hard to beat. The hooped design with the extra side poles creates loads of head space on the interior. The sleeping compartment is easily wide enough for your roll mat with plenty space to spare. The porch is a good size and can easily fit a rucksack, boots and still enough space to cook in. The weight is 1.5kg whish is the ideal weight for lightweight backpacking. The build quality is excellent. The only drawback is the interior is made mainly of mesh which means its not really suitable for winter UK use.
The reason I bought this tent is that when compared to the competition it cant really be beat on price. It may not have the build quality of the Hilleberg Akto but Iíve slept in this tent before and wasnít impressed by the 90cm head height (I ended up with a creek in my neck when sitting up). This tent has 100cm interior height which is much better if youíre a bit taller. Terra Nova tents (Laser etc) may be lighter, have fabric inners etc but thereís no tent that Terra Nova make thatís anywhere near as cheap as this.
Pros: Price, excellent build quality perfectly suited to Spring to Autumn backpacking in UK.
Cons: A bit cold if needed for all year round use.

General comments: A big thumbs up for the MSR Hubba! A great tent that weighs less than 1.5kg, a bonus to beat the fake tan wearing check in desk monkeys when taking it abroad.
Pros: Livability with the spacious headroom and porch. Easy Pitch.
Cons: Not for winter use
