I've had a MSR Hubba Hubba for a couple of years. From the wilds of Alaska to the damp Oregon coast and the Colorado high country, you just can't beat this tent. The tent body is full mesh, so if it is a nice night, you can leave the rain fly off and watch the skies twirl around. If it does rain, the fly will keep you dry. I'm a believer in a roomy tent, and this one fits me well. I'm 6' 2", and I can lay normally in the tent and not hit the ends. I can also sit up straight, and there's even a lot of elbow room. The vestibules are smallish, but all 4 panniers fit in them in case it is raining hard. The tent is free-standing, another must for me, who sometimes ends up putting it on a bed of rocks. Or boulders. It weighs just over 4 pounds, so it isn't too heavy, and it fits nicely on the top of my rear rack. I'd buy it again in a minute. Highly recommended.

A couple of minor flaws Rating:

Overall, this is an excellent tent. Lightweight, quality construction, roomy, and watertight - except as described below. My one issue is there seems to be to much fabric along the door sill - i.e. the sills are not taught even when the tent corners are staked out as tight as possible. This causes two problems. First, the door zipper often requires two hands to open/close - one to hold the fabric taught and one to pull the zipper, an inconvenience when one hand is already holding on to something else that you might be taking in/out of the tent. With other tents I've had, I could easily zip all the way with one hand. Second, with the rain fly on for dew and the vestibule doors open and rolled up all the way for ventilation (think warm muggy nights), condensation that accumulates and runs off the fly gets channeled down the rolled up doors to the corners of the tent - and depending on how the rolled up doors and the floppy sills are hanging - water can drip directly into the tent. Several times I've awakened to a small puddle in the corner. And depending on the ground the tent is on - the puddle doesn't always remain in the corner! I still like the tent as the first problem is a minor inconvenience and the second can be averted by fiddling with the vestibule doors. But on a $300 tent, it would be nice to not have to "fiddle" with anything.
