Show Description

Lighten your load without reducing your standard of living. MSR kept the geometry of their spectacularly successful Hubba-Hubba, and virtually all the interior volume, but managed to shave nearly a pound off the weight. The weight savings come from carbon fibre poles, an efficient peg-out design and some of the lightest fabrics available anywhere. It all nets out to roomy living for 2 campers at about a pound apiece.

  • Fly, floor and mesh are made from light-as-a-feather low-denier fabrics.
  • Polyurethane Durashield waterproof coating on floor and fly is twice as durable as standard coatings.
  • Carbon poles are lighter and stronger than aluminum.
  • Set up the fly alone with the optional footprint to create an ultralight shelter.
  • Zipperless vestibules use Velcro® strips and lightweight metal fasteners instead of a zipper to shave grams
  • Interior mesh storage pockets and loops for an optional gear loft keep your small items organized.
  • Note that this is not a freestanding tent. It requires pegging.
