- EDIT: MSR Hubba HP Tent Review-Cheryl McMurray
OK, another one, and a fairly difficult subject. Overall not bad, with just
a few things needing your attention. Could you edit and Repost both bits
> DESCRIPTION (taken from website)EDIT: The reader could get all this by going to the MSR web site. We really
want YOUR description, which may differ significantly from the marketing
spin. By putting it in YOUR words we avoid all the (sometimes meaningless)
manufacturer jargon too. A few quotes is one thing, but not the entire
> The material of the tent is extremely soft to the touch and feelsEdit: awfully long paragraph, with several diferent topics. It would be
better if you could break it up a bit, with one main topic per para.
> (pictured below right in silver) is 1 oz (28 gm).EDIT: On my screen the third pic is below the other two. Perhaps it would be
better to write (third pic below). (Yeah, good tent stakes matter!)
> The tent was used in the desert, on snow, below tree lineComment: OK, but no rain or storms experienced. Clarify this. Nice photos
EDIT: you have a photo of the tent pitched in the snow, but you don't state
what stakes you used here. This matters somewhat, even if slightly
peripheral to the tent. If you used the Y stakes you should explain how, and
why they held!
> but would not have felt as secure without the three extra stakes.Comment: now this IS the sort of observation we really do want in an OR!
> The tent then clips onto the pole and into the ends of the strutEDIT: 'The inner tent clips ...' Some people regard 'the tent' as being the
outer layer, so you need to make it clear for all.
> The fly attaches to the poles with the same grommet systemEDIT: you need to make it clear that the fly is thrown over the poles after
the inner and the poles have been pitched. This is very important for some
people who have to pitch their tent in pouring rain a lot. It can mean the
bucket groundsheet getting a lot of water in it.
> condensation on the inside of the fly but not in the tent.EDIT: 'but not inside the inner tent.'
> I cannot comment on it's waterproofness or ability to hold up inEDIT: you should move this up into the Field Information. It will be very
important for the reader who is looking for experiences with the tent in bad
weather. (You have been lucky!)
