MSR Hubba HP...
Head's up, if you're looking for a Hubba HP (High Performance), here's your retailer:
The HP models are not offered for sale any longer in North America (ridiculous IMO), so I used my best google-fu and found a reputable retailer with a good price.
Despite what the ad says, it came up £199.96 in the "shopping cart" with an additional £20.97 for delivery via DHL.
All that works out to $345.56 US.
Communication was fantastic.
Tent was delivered in 2 days!
Tent with all packaging and attached labels came in EXACTLY at 2lbs 15.9 oz's rather than the advertised 3lbs
With all the packaging, tags and additional stuff removed it weighs 2lbs 13.6 oz's.
Will cut a piece of Tyvek for a footprint today... should bump the weight to right around 3lbs.
FG, I agree.
I got the Tyvek cut... tent all-up goes 3lbs 0.7 ozs.
Then I ditched the heavyish MSR stuff sacks (you really don't need a separate pole sack either) and used a Silnylon sack and stake sack... all-up weight (w/ Tyvek) is 2lb's 15.2 oz's.
Not bad for a freestanding, all weather tent with good vestibule.
If I find I really like the tent, I'll likely end up with a Fibraplex pole set and drop the weight down to 2.5lbs.
