Update: We no longer sell the Hubba HP and instead recommend the Nordisk Telemark 1 LW tent, which is lighter than the Hubba HP and has more features.

The MSR Hubba HP is a high performance 3 season, one man tent, with a low weight of 1.36kg. It is easy to pitch and in our eyes is the ultimate one man tent.

Pitching Made Easy

Having previously tested the MSR Holler, which is the only tent so far to reach 5 stars in our reviews, we knew that the MSR Hubba HP was going to be great quality. It lived up to expectations and with a pitch time of less than about 5 minutes, this easy to erect tent was already looking good in our books.

Walk or run for the Hunger Project bannerThis time last year we announced that The Hunger Project was seeking walkers and runners to raise funds through participating in the London2Brighton Challenge. In the event, which took place in May 2012, 28 walkers and runners raised an incredible £20,000 to help with The Hunger Project’s mission of providing a sustainable end to world hunger.

This year The Hunger Project are once again calling for people to join them. If you would like to take part please see our updated blog post with details about the London2Brighton challenge 2013 and information about The Hunger Project.
