Living in Aussie but going to move back to NZ soon. Just bought a Hubba Hubba Tent fromt the states. Are these good for most NZ hunting conditions? Anyone use these or the 1 man one?
Cheers Smiley

By all accounts MSR are making some of the best tents out there at the moment, good buy.

Haven’t tried one myself, but a mate recently bought a Hubba 2p and is raving about it. I'd think the one you bought will be ideal for NZ so long as you don’t spend extended periods of time above the bush in winter.

Out of interest, who'd you buy it from in the States?

Yeah seems like it should be great, I got the HP version so should be slighly warmer in the colder months, dont plan spending alot of time above snow line so should be ok. really ligt too so should go well with my new 75l Cascade from Macpac.
I got in on Amazon from Amazon. Also purchased a Simmerlite from Altec on Amazon but there was 'confusion' between Amazon and Altec and was never sent. But to get to aussie only took about 5 days I think.

The HP is a nice tent, certainly cheaper purchasing from the states. I have just brought back a Carbon Reflex 2, USA$420  Saw one advertised here for NZ$1499 a few months back
Like the HP i would consider it a three season tent only

I have the same carbon reflex as well, how do they make the tent so light is is amazing, great thing with the MSR range you can leave the fly or inner at home and use it as a bivy  Wink.
I have owed a couple of them now and would never change.
