The MSR Hubba Hubba is a classic lightweight 2 person backpacking tent. It is spacious and easy to set up. Ultralight materials like a ripstop sil-nylon fly, DAC Featherlite SL aluminum poles and super light Hubs make the Hubba roomy for 2 but very light. 2 hubs join all the poles to make a single pole set that attaches to the tent in seconds via post and grommet and clips. The clips combine with the all no see um mesh body to provide great ventilation and star gazing opportunities. The doors are designed so that even in pouring rain the tent interior will stay dry as you move in or out of the tent. At under 5 lbs. the Hubba Hubba is very light and even has a 2 large vestibules for stowing excess gear and wet boots. It is also versatile as it can be set up with a fly only pitch with or without the optional nylon ground cloth. This tent is a favorite with long distance hikers. And now with a more natural green fly color you can blend right in to the scenery.

As durable as any other tent. Worth it's weight in gold.
Very comfortable with all the room inside. Lets be honest, this tent holds one personal and all their gear. Two people and gear would be really tough.
I would like to note that this tent is like a kite. If you don't stake it down and the wind picks up... it will fly away, even with your heavy 40 pound backpack inside....
