Cheesy The one man one is great...

Handles the wind, very light, easy to set up, free standing, can sit up in it...

The 2 man one should be the same just twice as wide...

Had a look at The Claws' down in Kurow a couple of months ago, Looks like a top bit of gear.

I bought one just before Christmas. It's brilliant, can't really say anything bad about it.

Got it off this site here: http://store.mpgear.com/msrhubbahubbatent-freefootprinta40value.aspx

NZ$420 with a free footprint and delivered in under two weeks over he xmas period, couldn't be happier. They retail here for $850-$1000.

It is very hard to go wrong with MSR kit  if you use it as per the season specs , I have an MSR Fusion 2  tent  and rate it 5 out of 5  ,
Hint get the Groundhog tent peg kit if you can , even if you dont get the tent  Grin

Well done. Interesting that they sent it to you when their policies say they won't ship MSR products internationally?

Huh. Didn't realise that until you pointed it out. I might email them and see what the story is. I must be special or something.  Cheesy

Yeah well thats where the pun was aimed.
"camp" = slang for over the top,comonly linked to the limp wristed  comunity  etc. Think Julian Cleary or the little white haired guy from "are you being served"
Crap Im feeling older by the day.

Edit Wtf there is a G A Y  filter on now?

Great tent, I bought one 2nd hand off trade me just before xmas, about a year old, used a couple of times for $400. Ive only used it once so far, but it was in Haast pass over xmas in a huge storm, where it bucketed down for days, and it stood up perfectly. Good tent I say
