/ REVIEW: MSR Habitude 6 Tent

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
Late summer sunset, but the kids are still full of beans... A head-height family tent that's light enough to carry miles from the car, yet built to stand up to kids and at least a bit of weather... too good to be true? MSR have only gone and made the tent that Dan Bailey always wished someone would.

Have you ever used/seen a TNF Kaiju? They seem to do a 4 and 6 man and seem aimed at a similar market at a similar weight but a fair bit cheaper. Not sure they are still available though.

Interesting - no I'd never heard of that. Looks good, but I can't find it for sale in the UK. And it seems to be a fair bit heavier (8.69kg vs 6.7kg) which I think would make a difference to me

The Big Agnes Big House 6 Deluxe is also worth a look - its bigger at 11.6 m2 (when you include the separate vestibule) - total weight is ~7kg (inc vestibule, 7m2 and 5.7kg without)

Have alpkit discontinued the heska? Seems it would do a similar job with less wind issues?

I have had an MSR Papa Hubba for 3 or 4 years.  4 person, about 2.9kg. It has been fantastic. Not as roomy as the one in the review but much lighter and lower, so probably better in winds. It has stood up to family life well. I take along an extra groundsheet as the bottom seems rather lightweight.
