Love my Hubba Hubba tent! The fact that the footprint has been designed so that it can be used with just the fly and poles is brilliant.

is it possible to use with hubba hubba 2p tent?
Will this fit the orange/yellow model?...
Will this fit the orange/yellow model? Does this work well as a lean-to shelter? Anyone know the dimensions? Thanks!
Hey Kevin. Yes, this will fit the orange/yellow model. As far as a lean-to shelter, it is too small and won't provide much coverage for regular use. The dimensions are 84" x 50"

Will this fit the Mutha Hubba (3 person) version?
Nope. You will need the MSR Mutha Hubba Footprint. The reason is these footprints fit exactly the bottom of the particular tent it's made for, complete with the stake out points. If you where to use this with the Mutha Hubba it would leave large parts of the of the bottom of the tent unprotected.
The main purpose of these footprints are to keep the tent from getting damaged. A $400 tent with dirt and other forms of wear-and-tear is bad, but a $40 footprint with dirt, scrape marks, and mildew isn't as big a deal. In the old days, you needed a tarp (aka. footprint) to keep water from seeping into the floor of the tent, but not any more. Most mid-level to high-end tents are durably waterproof with taped seems. However, the footprint will literally add decades of life to the tent. Call it 'tent floor insurance' and since the floor is where it actually contacts the earth, this makes sense. I have several tents that I have used everywhere from muddy Teton National Park conditions to Moab desert conditions but because I used footprints, you can hardly tell they've been used. It's amazing!
Hope that helps!

Is this one the 2011 model with the green bag?
I don't know if it's specifically called the 2011 model, but it is the most recent available. The older model was orange.
