MSR Tents in the Wind Rivers
Light and Tight
3 years and still going strong. Love love love this tent. It goes up without having to think about it. My wife can set it up in minutes. It is a tight fit for two wide shouldered guys, but if you're that beefy you could pack in a bigger shelter.

how does the vestibule hold up to wind for cooking outside tent but w/in confines of vestibule?
I would highly discourage you from cooking within the confines of the vestibule. I'd heard too many stories of people doing so to avoid wind/rain and ending up with tents on fire from spilled fuel, knocked over stoves, etc. The vestibule space is only 1.6 square meters and it hangs pretty low over the ground so it really isn't ideal for this application.

this ore the Marmot Aura 2? i will be doing a lot of backpacking on the AT, from Maine down to North Carolina, i want light but sturdy and durable. My time will be split between going solo and with with others. i Want compressibility and pack-ability. Waterproof/bombproof is a must, and it must be able to stand up to everything from frost and light snow all the way to 100+ humid nights. is this the pack for me or must i look elsewhere?
Hubba Hubba Nightlight
Best tent I've ever had
The MSR Hubba Hubba is great. It goes up super fast and basically weighs nothing at all (it might even make your pack a little lighter by adding it). Have dual vestibules is great, each is plenty big enough to hold my 65 liter pack and still have room for boots and entry/exit.
Haven't tested it in heavy rain yet but the only way I knew it was raining lightly on us up in the White Mountains this summer was by hearing it.
Speaking of hearing, the silent zippers are great too if you want to sneak out in the morning without waking someone up (as long as they're tired!)

I bought this tent a few months ago and it is amazing. But...it takes up a large amount of room in my pack. Is it possible to use a compression sact for the footprint, fly and tent body without damaging or causing wear to the tent? If so what sack do you recomend?
You can use a compression sack for this tent! I wouldn't store it in there indefinitely however (keep the original storage sack for this purpose and don't stuff the tent when storing, but fold it...MSR's tents use the best PU coating in the industry so you won't experience deterioration of the coatings were the tent is folded like you would with other brands).
The way I pack my Hubba Hubba is first stuffing in the fly and then the body of the tent. If you have a footprint, you can also stuff that in (first put it in the mesh storage sack and then stuff LAST into the compression sack), but keep in mind it might be wet or dirty. If so, I recommend NOT stuffing this with the tent as mildew and wetness will be transferred especially after everything is compressed. The reason why you put the fly in first is because it is put on after the body is up, and sometimes you might not need to take the fly out. If you put the fly in first, then you will have much more hassle when it comes to setting up camp.
I highly recommend the Granite Gear Air Compressor size Small. This is an ultralight compression sack that fits the body and fly of the Hubba Hubba perfectly. After it's compressed it will be the size of a bloated softball. I also like the 'Block' shape of this compression sack. It makes packing much easier.
Absolutely you can. I wouldn't store it compressed all the time (I store mine in the included sack), but carrying it compressed is fine. A compression sack that's about 15 L should be fine.

How small (in liters) of a stuff sack/dry sack/compression sack can the fly, body, and footprint fit in (sans poles and stakes)?
The best size I've used for packing my Hubba Hubba is the size small Granite Gear Air Compressor Compression Sack. It is about 11L before compressing. Once compressed it is roughly the size of a over-sized softball (obviously without the stakes or poles inside). I've tried the Xsmall compression sack, but it is difficult to get it in initially, making breaking down camp more of a chore.
I really like the Granite Gear Air Compressors because of the new Block shape and durable nature even though it only weighs about 2 oz for the sack. This is what I would recommend...
Can the fly be set up alone like the HP?
Can the fly be set up alone like the HP?
You can actually set up this tent without a footprint (or the body). This is done by simply putting each pole in the grommets located at each corner of the fly. The cross pole also has a set of grommets in the fly near the door. This takes about 30 seconds to do and will cover 3 people based on the size of the fly. The total weight of this set-up is about 1.5lbs and is what makes the Hubba Hubba so versatile. It's true you can use a footprint if you want protection from the ground, but isn't necessary. So, in essence, there is actually four different ways you can set it up; the body, fly, poles, and footprint; body, fly, and poles; fly, poles, and footprint; OR fly and poles only. It is an awesome tent!

I have an issue with fly for my tent. The water-proof layyer become sticky. I need new fly, but can't find it anyware online.
Can anyone suggest where to buy it?
You will need to contact the Cascade Designs Service Center for warranty & repair. Their contact information is as follows:
4225 Second Avenue South
Seattle, WA 98134 U.S.A.
Hours of operation:
MondayFriday, 8 a.m.4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
They are very understanding & easy to work with.
Called Cascade Designs today. They gave me RA number and will replace fly.
Hope to get replacement before my next trip. Greate tent and great company!
I have the same problem. I actually went through the whole cycle of the layer deterioration; sticky, then flaking off like layers of wax and then it was no longer waterproof. Foud out the hard way during a camping trip. Called Cascade Designs 10 minutes ago and got an RA #. Hopefully the new fly arrives before my trip in October. So far, impressed with the customer service.
This tent is the tent other tents are designed after. It's light, water-tight and you'll fit just right. I have heard some say it's too short for the tall type, but at 6'2" I find it fine. The two doors/vestibules make for a quiet exit for a midnight pee and the cross ventilation cannot compare to single door tents. It is pricey but it will last you longer than you'll need it to and is absolutely worth it. The hub and pole system takes a little getting used to, but you can do it.
Does this tent gather any condisation?
Does this tent gather any condisation?
I've never had much problem with condensation. Since it is a full-mesh tent, the most likely place for condensation would be on the inside of the fly, and I haven't seen much of this (even in rainy weather).
This tent ventilates very well, so not much condensation occurs. In very humid climates/rainy conditions, fully guying out the lines from the fly will decrease any condensation even more.

Write your question here...I am considering this tent along with the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 2man, Marmot Aura 2 person, and the Mountain Hardware skyledge 2.1 2 person. I want a very stable tent in the wind will this one hold up or is one of the others better in the wind. What one of these tents has the most living space? Thanks, Eli
While the hubba hubba does do decently in the wind, the skyledge 2.1 is by far the sturdiest tent out of your selection. The cross poles at the top are joined by a power clip, something that makes the tent significantly sturdier than others. Notice on how the hubba hubba and the copper spur that there is only one pole in the middle that supports it from the ground. this leads to a softer tent top, which can be a concern in the wind. The marmot tent has steeper walls than the skyledge, which catch more wind. Also, the skyledge is pretty darn roomy, it's not called a 2.1 for nothing.
Great Backcountry Tent
I bought the Hubba Hubba a year ago and have had the chance to use it several times in the backcountry. It packs light and is very well constructed. I got the footprint to go with it and the system performs great at keeping the floor dry inside the tent. Just took it on the 4-Pass Trail in the Elk Mountains of Colorado (late July) and got poured on the first night. I mean it **RAINED**. However, in the morning I was completely dry. Others in the group with TNF and REI tents were soaked, but the seam-taped floor of the Hubba Hubba combined with the footprint kept me and my partner nice and dry. The unique pole design allows for a rain-fly-only option that sounds great, although I've not tried it out yet. All around it's durable, keeps out the elements, packs light, and is roomier inside than most other 2-person tents. The vestibules are great for housing your packs too (so the stupid marmots don't chew through your salty sweat-soaked stuff...). Highly recommended.
Looking for the poles to the hubba hubba...
Looking for the poles to the hubba hubba we love the tent but, broke the poles this past weekend. Do you know where to get extra sets?
You're in luck! MSR has an unlimited lifetime warranty on the poles! Simply go to www.msrgear.com and go to the bottom of the page where there's a link to 'Warranty & Repair'. Click on this and follow the instructions. They will probably have you send in the whole pole set and and then replace the one that's broken. You should expect a 2-4 week turn-around time.

One Sick Tent
Great tent. Light weight, durable, and keeps you dry. I cant say enough good things about this tent. Love to use it without the rain fly so we can star gaze. If rain rolls in it only takes a second to throw on the fly. Two doors and two vestibules is great (don't have to climb over someone in the middle of the night when nature calls). Also each person to keep their gear dry and access it easily. Im 6'3" and have plenty of room. Also I love the way the walls go straight up, much more usable space. Also love the option of setting up with just the footprint and rain fly when your not worried about creepie crawlies. Just buy it!
Best Tent Ever
MSR did it right with the Hubba Hubba. All mesh makes this guy feel open on the nice nights, and the fly keeps you +1 (and your gear in the vestibules) dry when it's raining. I like this better than the HP, which traded the mesh for lighter fabric. Normally I'm always looking to shed weight, but that's just not worth it to me.
