I have a feeling H & F sell them or can get them in at least. Good tents. Shop around as they range between $600-$750.

PS, this will probably get shifted out of the hunting section before long Smiley

Get one off moontrail.com. When I got it it gave me enough bonus points to get a free msr whisperlite international stove with it.
Cost about $450 nzd landed but I think I got a bit of extra crap with that too.
They have the 2011 model http://www.moontrail.com/msr_hubbahubba.php for $300 usd.

I've got a Hubba HP - very happy with it.

MSR gear is pricey, but you get what you pay for. For instance, have a look at the floor design of other tents (macpac microlight), and see how high the "bathtub" is...

Hubba also gives you lots if different options to pitch: completely freestanding, fly first then inner (nice for packing up in the rain), and to use the fly and footprint only as a lightweight shelter (870g for fly and foot only), which compares well weight-wise to something like a Hennessey fly or Huntech fly.

Keep an eye on Trademe, there are some good deals on second-hand Hubbas.

If you go for the Hubba, I would strongly recommend that you get the MSR footprint at the same time.

How do you pitch the Fly first, then the inner? Have been trying to figure that out. Have thought that you could put down foot print then poles then fly then hop inside and fit inner to the poles and then fit each corner eyelet to the poles by taking them out of the footprint??
Thoughts?

ensure that all the tensioning straps are loose

  • clip poles onto footprint grommets, creating the dome
  • put up the fly over the dome, slip the fly straps onto the poles underneath the footprint straps - start at one corner with the strap done if you struggle
  • if windy you can stake out the fly now, don't tension yet
  • open inner underneath the fly
  • cilp the inner straps onto the poles, underneath the fly and footprint straps
  • snap the inner clips onto the poles, while you sit inside the vestibule
  • easiest to do the crossbar grommets on the side opposite the door thru the ventilation window at the top
  • stake out and tighten straps

if you don't like the reverse sequence of the straps onto the ends of the poles, you can undo them one at a time and do it the "correct way", but the reverse sequence helps if you want to take down the inner while the fly is up.

hope that makes sense.

I have one. I like it but I haven't used it in high winds. The one time is was windy and we were camped near a high mountain lake, a lot of fine sand managed to blow through the screen and into the tent.
