MSR Hubba pre-NX

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a decent tent, but not the best for the price. In Norway I would count it as a 2 season tent (spring and summer). It has good quality and nice features. The length is about marginal for a person of 1.90m, but the sitting height is good. It can withstand heavy rain and it has sufficient ventilation. When it comes to wind it is another story. One side of the tent is quite "vertical", meaning it function like a "sail" in the wind (NB! the included poles are too few and too small). If the wind direction is predictable you should place the vestibule towards the wind direction as it has a leaner slope shape and will make for an easier sleeping. Otherwise, the rainfly will be flapping in the wind and blow into the inner tent mesh and make you wet if it rains. The vestibule is small and can barely cover your backpack and boots. I would say this is the perfect tent for hikes in good weather, but for anything else I would grab my NF Tadpole 23. Btw, MSR Hubba is the left most tent on the picture.
