For both first-time campers and seasoned professionals, the Mutha Hubba 3 person tent is a great choice for camping trips.

Some of the best benefits of choosing this tent over another include:

  • Comfort
  • Easy to Erect
  • Lightweight

In all honesty, we at Camping Tent Reviews have found it rather difficult to come up with any drawbacks to this particular tent.

If we were forced to come up with one, it would be the price.

Although experienced campers won't be surprised to see a price tag of $400 for such a great tent, beginners may be turned off by the sight.

MSR Mutha Hubba Tent: Advantages

With its unique pole design, the Mutha Hubba tent provides an amazing amount of living space, both lateral and vertical.

Don't worry about facing the frustration of setting up a complicated shelter.

The Mutha Hubba goes up in a flash, and can be taken down just as easily.

For the amount of interior room and vestibule space this shelter provides, it's an unbelievably lightweight product.

Weighing in at just over six pounds, this is a three person tent that you won't mind lugging around with you.

If you're in the market for a 3 person backpacking tent, this MSR tent must be on your list of potential candidates.

MSR Mutha Hubba Tent: Disadvantages

If you are new to the camping world, $400 may seem far too steep a price for a tent. And, in most cases, you would be right in thinking that. There are countless brand and models that are well overpriced.

This, however, is not one of those. Don't let the price tag scare you away.

If you buy this tent, you'll never have to buy another one again. Consider it an investment.

If you have a bit of money you're willing to spend (above and beyond the Mutha's $400 price tag), consider the Mutha Hubba HP.

This tent is even lighter than the Mutha Hubba and provides much more interior space.

No matter which model you choose, though, be sure to pick up a Mutha Hubba Footprint ($49.95 on REI's website).

This will add years to your tent's life by protecting it from direct contact with the ground.

If you have the money, nothing should be stopping you from picking up the MSR Mutha Hubba tent.

If you don't have the money, then you'd do well to wait and save up until you do.

There is not a better 3 person tent out there.
