    That sale is over for now. There is no coupon code for the additional 20% off the outlet. It was automatically taken off the most expensive item in your cart when you purchased it.

    Not sure how much I like the mostly fabric design of the Hubba HP. The all mesh of the Hubba would offer more ventilation. Also, I don't think 3 oz weight savings is worth $100.
