    MSR carbon reflex

    Hi all,
    Wondering if anyone has this tent and any comments they have about it. Looks very light. Also is fitting 3 people in it possible or is it too much of a push.
    cheers

    I have the two-man (snug) version and rate it very highly but I am very careful as to where I pitch it. It's survived heavy rain extremely well, but I haven't had it out in severe gales.

    Hahaha. Yeah youíd want to be real friendly sleeping two in the two man. I have one and itís ďcuddlyĒ.
    The one man is more roomy. I have both.

    I have spent a night or two in a Muther hubber tent ("3person tent") and it is an ideal 2 person tent with two vestibules for each person to keep there pack and gear out of the weather on their side and not have to climb over each other to get out. 3 would be possible but far from comfortable.
    Be a good tent for all but open country in high winds.

    Yep, Dad has that one spent quite a few nights in it with three, might have to consider it. Was looking at the other one because it’s considerably lighter but the mutha hubbba is pretty light nonetheless
