Most Livable for the Weight!

I love this tent. Personally, I'm willing to carry a little extra weight for a tent that is truely freestanding and has enough room to sleep two comfortably as well as store some extra gear. This tent does it all. It's design is extremely simple and the pole hubs are symetrical so it makes pitching a piece of cake. Unlike some of the lighter two person tents, this tent has two doors, as well as two good sized vestibules. Usually, vestibule space is misleading when reading specs because of height; a high vestibule creates more square feet of space that you cant use. This tent has plenty of space per vestibue for your pack and boots. Also unlike many other lighter tents in it's class, this tent is symetrical inside so sleeping head to toe is always fair without someone sleeping with the tent ceiling right in front of their face. If you split the weight with a hiking buddy, your looking at under 2.5 lbs (with a footprint) per person for a roomy freestanding shelter you will love. If your on the fence, trust me, this tent will deliver.

MSR Hubba Hubba NX

I must say this tent is a nice upgrade to MSR's previous model of the Hubba Hubba. Simplicity in setup was very important to me and this tent proves that. From the one pole hub design to the color coded rain fly attachments, setting up a tent doesn't get much easier. There is just enough room to fit two sleeping bags. Plenty of ventilation and love the side zipper on both entry systems. Very light and extremely easy to pack up. My only complaint is that the included 6 MSR mini-groundhog stakes did not come with the attached pull cords. This makes pulling them out of the ground very difficult. The stakes show pull cords on the REI website? Overall a great purchase and props to REI for getting this product out before anyone else.

Bigger on the inside than the outside

The one pole design made setting up this tent easy and fast. It handled the sustained 20 mph winds I encountered with no flapping or flexing. The small packed size, roominess, and light weight made it perfect for a bike camping trip. It kept me and my gear dry on a trip where it rained six of ten days.
