    Luxe make a copy of the hubba hubba. I have one, great wee tent. Shade heavier than the msr version.

    To be fair though that design is widely used by a bunch of manufacturers now.

    OK
    So the "copies" are legit and not hidden copies (counterfeit)

    Anyone heard or know about a Chez Company Hannah
    Sell a lot of Tents etc in East Europe

    eg - Hannah Expedition

    Got the luxe copy of the msr hubba hubba well made and great tent but not great in wind have spent the odd night not knowing if it was going to last so on the look out for something like the MacPac Olympus or minaret
    for longer trips
    Had a huntec bivy but got sick of the sand flies when down fiordland so prefer a tent now

    Maclac Olympus is great, I've had mine since 1997. They are heavy, but if you split the fly and inner between 2 it is not quite heavy.
    No worries about the wind damaging an Olympus.

    Macpac Micro or Macro. Genuine four seasons in our terms. I've seen both hold up when MSR's have shredded and a hillberg snapped poles. Macpac's came through totally unscathed.

    If you plan on hunting in sandfly or mozzie country, don't rely on a huntech or stoney creek bivvy, you won't get much sleep and will wake up covered in itchy spots...bit like after a trip to hamilton.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    .
    Funny Iíve seen a similar thing happen, though it was the MSR that came up trumps.

    I have the MSR nx 2 man and the Luxe copy. I have used these tents on the west coast tahr hunting over the past 5/6 years. The Luxe copy is pretty damn good for the money, but did leak slightly around some of the door seams where the tie back toggles were stitched in big storms. I bought the MSR after this and find it excellent, but in big storms with heavy rain a bit of splashing on the inner, and the vestibule pegs can pull if not secured with longer pegs.
    I think there is better value then the MSR try big Agnes and some of the marmot 2 mans which were selling at 550 odd at Sitka show. Mates Tatonka pretty good, slightly heavier but pretty bullet proof.
