My husband and I are going on our 4th year in our Hubba Hubba. It is easy to put up and take down for multi-day trips. Split between us, this system is lighter then when we use our hammock systems separately. We regularly camp in the Smokies and surrounding parks so rain is pretty much a constant. After two years of use we retreated the rain fly and reapplied seam sealer as a precaution. We have never had a problem with leaks in the rainfly and only just recently, on our trip to Yellowstone, did we have water seep through the tent floor. It was a torrential downpour and edge of our tent was in a puddle. Turned out to not be much of a problem. We used Tyvek housing wrap for a couple of years for a footprint until we broke down and got the footprint with a giftcard. LOVE the footprint. We not only use it for the Hubba hubba but we also stake it under our hammock systems for a nice "landing pad." As for MSR, the have wonderful customer support. They are very helpful and patient, especially when they are trying to teach you how to replace a section of your pole over the phone. I would buy this tent again in a heartbeat!
