    Ohhhhh, sweet superlight tent!

    You're used to catcalls when you're walking to work, but it's rare you get a foxy whistle or "hey hot stuff" when you're in the backcountry. Get used to it, because when you get hunker down for the night in the MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person 3-Season Tent, the admiring hoots and hollers are going to follow. This superlight (3lb 7oz trail weight) sweetheart keeps your pack weight low, packs down to next to nothing, breathes deeper than your yogi, and still stands up to years of camping adventures.
    Light in your pack but tough on the ground, the 30D nylon ripstop bathtub floor rises up to protect your slumbering body from splashes and spits when it starts to rain. Water stays on the outside due to a combination of DWR and 3000mm Durashield PU coatings. An opaque blend of mesh and ripstop nylon turns the tent body into a safe place to towel off after a pre-dawn skinny dip in the lake. Vents on all four sides let the crosswinds blow to keep the air inside fresh. The nylon ripstop rainfly uses a 1200mm Durshield PU and silicone coating to keep the water from creeping inside and tanking your dreams of feather beds and hot (indoor) showers.
    Unique to the Hubba Hubba is the rainfly-vestibule interaction. Instead of center zips on the fly, the zipper lies along the side, tucked beneath a rain gutter. When you open the tent fly, a flap of fly fabric falls away, giving you a protected entrance to your tent. The rain gutter prevents precipitation from sneaking inside. At both vestibules, you can roll up the edges on the fly and savor an evening breeze free of mosquitoes. Even if you're taking the entire package for a trip on the Wonderland Trail, the Hubba Hubba only puts a measly three-and-a-half pounds in your pack.

    Excellent free standing tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I believe this is the best free standing tent
    First, it is a real free standing tent
    Second, it is only a little over 3lbs. But don't compare it to other semi-free standing tent like carbon reflex, fly creek, or zpacks.
    Third, I stayed completely dry during couple of down pour at PA AT
    Finally, I dont have any condensation problem with it.
    More importantly, I got this tent for $299 during 2015 black Friday sales.
    Good job MSR and backcountry!

    Beyond Expectations

      Blown away by the light weight, ease of setup, and versatility. Bought it for shorter, 2-3 day trips with my 120lb Newf. Plenty of room for the both of us! With material this lite, I highly recommend purchasing the foot print. My favorite tent purchase to date.

      Nice tent

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I researched many tents and for the money this is a great 2PUL tent. I wanted freestanding, versatile, lightweight, livable and sturdy. I left off a star because the poles grew some bends after a beach storm that really didn't seem that windy. The beach was breezy for 2 days then a good thunderstorm came through. All good all dry. But while hosing and cleaning the tent afterwards I noticed a wobble and some arch in the cross brace. I was surprised the poles bent under wind force that did not seem that strong. Also the sand really bothered the zippers and poles. A larger zipper would help, they seem pretty frail. But since I wanted UL I guess every gram is limited. I have a very large dog that weights 135 that is my camping buddy and she sprawls , this tent has adequate room for both. I do protect the floor from her nails with a cut to fit heavy boiled wool rug that is heavy but the dog carries it for me. The pocket placement is ok, I do prefer corner pockets, the ventilation is cut by the fine mesh, it gets hot but so do all tents with good mesh. I use it often, camping at least 30 days per summer and a few more through fall or until snow, so far after two years no tears, leaks or pulls in the mesh. Still conches down tight, except for bug stains, and the slight bend in the crossbar, it has held up. The double doors keep me from getting trampled by the dog at night, The fly alone set up is so nice as shade on the beach when bugs aren't bad. The seams have withstood abuse from my daughter borrowing it and stuffing a huge air mattress inside. If those seams had pulled she would have owed me 379.00. They held lucky for her. I didn't want a UL tent I needed to baby like I heard about with BA UL s and you really don't have to with this one. Like my twenty year old MSR whisper lite, it is a good value. I even leave the larger tents home when car camping as this tent is comfy enough not to bother with my bigger tents, or take this for my own privacy and let others use the others I have when camping with family. I like it enough to no longer let others borrow it again and I am usually a very generous lender. They can have the equinox or the REI, but my hubba I keep for me.

      This Tent Saved my Life....

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Yeah I know it's a stretch, but this tent with 2 doors allowed me to exit opposite side while a Bear blocked the other door. I was able to get out and blast it with bear mace, while in Zions Ntl over memorial weekend. I've taken on many trips & this is my favorite of all tents I own. Light weight, roomy & ive taken it all 4 seasons here in Utah. Only suggest if you use it in winter you pop the vestibule door open to avoid condensation in addition to vents. MSR-(Cascade Designs- customer service is hands down best in the industry! I own many of their brands. They offered to replace my fly cause it was stained with bear mace. I turned it down cause I stained it & didn't want to take advantage. I got most of the stain out. I bought this tent through Backcountry . I own the Hilleburg Anjan2 & zpacks Hexamid but I still prefer my MSR Hubba NX2

      This Tent Saved my Life....

      Best. Tent. Ever

        Seriously. I borrowed this tent from a friend for a camping trip to Utah and was amazed at how lightweight yet sturdy, spacious, and comfortable this tent is. Totally great during an unexpected windy snowstorm/cold snap. They really did think of everything. As soon as I got back I ordered one for myself, and have since taken it to deserts, and all over Hawaii. It seems to be great in all climates and weather! I love the rain fly set up, plan on taking it to the beach all summer. No complaints !

        Best. Tent. Ever

        Nice UL tent

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I upgraded from my father's Northface minibus, which is about 10lbs. I have to say it's nice. It's easy to setup and you have two ways to pack the tent. If you strap the poles at the outside your pack, you could pack the tent body and fly into a small 4-5 liters ball.
        The only cons of this tent is the weight. It is definitely not the lightest tent in the world. I would be happy to see it's under 3lbs.

        Well thought out

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        This tent is just phenomenally thought out. I was torn between this and the Big Agnes Copper Spur (I have a BA Jack Rabbit SL1) because I like the BA tents so much. What sold me was the tiny details. Here are a few things I appreciate: You can roll up the fly in many ways, there is a little rain gutter, the doors when fully open don't touch the ground, you can set up the fly first (with or without footprint) to protect the tent if it's raining, the integrated loops for tie down, and finally, even the bag it comes in can compress in multiple ways and easily be used to attach outside to a backpack if needed.

        I chose this tent not only because of those features, but it's symmetrical design. Having a Jackrabbit (Basically a BA Rattlesnake) I know what it's like to have the tapered tent design where the end near your feet is lower. While it's fine for sleeping, if you're ever stuck in the rain it seems more cramped. Doing something as simple as playing cards with someone in the tent means you're both sideways in the tent. I find being able to sit on opposite ends much more comfortable if you're stuck for a day in the tent.

        I wouldn't give less than 5 stars for this because I knew exactly what I was getting in to (I wanted a light tent), but I would definitely get a footprint. The fabric is very thin and I know it's a little more weight, but at 7oz, I think the years added would greatly benefit your bank account. Ultimately, it becomes a 2 lb tent for each person if you head out somewhere it's needed. I'm usually in the rocky high Sierra's, so I usually use something.

        One more note, is that on this website, as well as the MSR website, it states that the tent comes with 6 mini groundhog stakes, but mine came with 10 of the newer "Needle" stakes. I suspect they are the same weight and it's nice to have 10 (for the 10 points available on the tent) but I think it's worth mentioning if you expect the mini-groundhog as they will be different in various environments.

        Overall, I am super happy. I've worked for REI before and used many different tents through the years and I think this is the best I've ever had. On top of that, I have other stoves/filters made by MSR and a therm-a-rest, and can attest to top notch customer service, so I know someday should I ever have a problem they will have my back!

        Well thought out

        Love It!!!

          I totally love this tent. I have a single person tent that weights more and has less space. This tent gives a little extra room when I'm by myslef to move around and have a little comfort in as well as it fits me and the wife with no issues. I just spent five nights in it along Michigan's Northcountry Trail and had some really nasty weather - everything was dry and protected inside.

          Love It!!!

          They thought of everything!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Having been in the outdoor biz for 40 years, I'm quite picky about the gear I purchase, its design and execution. The Hubba Hubba that I've had for a few years remains in perfect shape except for a pole that I broke on my last adventure moto trip. The pole breakage was my fault yet the company is fixing it at no charge. The tent is super easy to set up and pitches taut as any tent I've used. The double doors and vestibules are irreplaceable and the small things like the adjustable pull outs on the four corners and the adjustable tensioners on the rain fly work great as the fabric stretches when wet. If I needed a tent to house both myself and my wife, I'd opt for the 3 person version before considering any other tent!

          A great upgrade

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Have had the MSR Nook for a couple years now and had spent over 100 nights in it. Loved that tent, but when this came out, a tent with more space, more cool little features, a better fly setup, freestanding AND down to almost the same weight and size as the Nook I had to jump on it. I have since spent about a dozen nights in this and am very happy. Its a very nice place to spend the night. My girlfriend likes the extra door and space for her bag in her own vestibule too.

          Happy Tent. Happy Camping. Happy Jess.

            This tent is great because of the extremely lightweight components it offers. Everything from the stakes to the poles is meant for the best portability and it's set up is easy. I love this tent because of the way the angles sit; it gives it a lot more room. The 2 person is actually a good size for 2 people without feeling cramped. We fit a bouldering pad underneath us, two sleeping bags, and used the gear flaps to store our backpacks. Plenty of room to do whatever you need and TWO doors...what more could you ask for?

            Happy Tent. Happy Camping. Happy Jess.

            Total love!

            This tent is incredible. At 3 lbs 13 oz, you barely feel this shelter in your pack. Construction is a snap with the singular pole construction, and easy snap on suspension. The fly was a bit tricky as the MSR is printed on the inside, also they way it rolls away from the doors has to be lined up or else it is a bit of a trick to get into the doors. With two doors, you dont have to fuss over waking up any company you are sharing the tent with.

            Two vestibules mean you get to have your own space for backpacks, boot removal, and the midnight trip to the bushes.

            On each mesh window, there is a sweet little mesh pocket built in, I LOVE that design, so small, so light and clever.

            The floor of the tent is tough, and allows two folks and a pooch to lay comfortably. The design of the walls allow for you and your partners to sit up fully to play cards, or have a conversation. The walls angle away from the floor to allow more space overhead in case you need to escape the weather.

            I am completely satisfied with my purchase, and would encourage anyone else to is looking for a backpacking home to check this out!

            • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

            We bought this tent for our hiking buddies for their wedding. It turns out, they love it. Their old tent was at least twice the weight, while being smaller and not packing down as well. It fits the two of them, plus their 60# dog with room to spare!

            How do you say Hubba Hubba in Chilean?

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Yes. I know Chilean is not technically a language. But I'd still like to discover the translation…or create one. After an unfortunate and honestly scary incident in Canada I found myself needing to purchase a new tent. I was traveling to Chilean Patagonia to volunteer with Conservacion Patagonica and my main requirements were something roomy but also lightweight. After all I had to take 3 flights and a 9 hour bus ride to get to my destination and was living in the tent for a month. I could not have picked a better temporary living space than this Hubba Hubba. I slept incredibly well in heat, hail, pouring rain and malicious Patagonian wind with all of my gear nestled in with me. Or if we had a particularly dirty day of removing fences, the fly/vestibule offered plenty of space for my things outside the tent. The awesome headroom in the tent made my fellow volunteers very envious and two of us could very comfortably chill inside, me sitting in my thermarest chair, reading and hanging out without our heads resting on the side or top of the tent. After volunteering when we hitchhiked up the Carretera Austral it was perfect because it packed up light and small. Whether I was uncertain of what gypsy camp I'd end up in, or was trekking to Cerro Castillo, my Hubba Hubba was there for me. I really really recommend this tent whether traveling afar or camping in the back yard. Super solid product.

            Keeps getting better

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I have had the Hubba Hubba since it first came out and couldn't be happier with it. It says three-season, but I've definitely taken it out in the snow and the summer and felt good about it while staying dry.

            The only problem I ever had was that, after years and years of use, the rainfly started to disintegrate and stick together. I called MSR and they realized they didn't even have the same style fly anymore, so they sent me a brand new tent!

            When I was perfectly happy with my tent for years, the updated version is amazing. It's even lighter, with better quality materials. I mean, the product itself is great, but if the warranty is good enough to get a brand new tent out of the deal after nearly a decade of use..? That's quality worth paying for.

            I agree with Ryan, they are great with their warranty and even greater customer satisfaction. They have hooked me up with two new tents, due to a tent I had (Fling) that the fly was breaking down after 6 years of use, they sent me a new tent because they did not make the Fling anymore. They are a top notch company and have very little (if any) trouble with warranty's.


            Unanswered Question

            Can you confirm that the interior length is really 84 inches, will a large neoair (78x25) fit without touch the ends? I ask because I tried the big agnes competitor the copper UL2 the ends of the mat touched walls despite the 90 inch claimed length, being 6'6" this is a concern.

            Do you all find the white color fly and red body to stand out too much in the backcountry or in stealth camping?

            Since most of the color is towards the bottom, I think this tent actually fits right in with some landscapes. For example, if you are around large rocks and there is small foliage to cover up the bottom, you end up blending right in. I can see if you were in a forrest it might be more noticeable, but I think all tents struggle to fit in the landscape, just depending on their colors. Many other tents are orange or yellow and those stand out a ton as well. I do like how the whole fly is grey. If you have the fly on, you're at least neutral color.

            Best Answer

            Hi kitp488904,

            This rainfly will act similarly to any other 3-season rainfly - if you stake it down well, you won't be too bothered by it in light-mid wind conditions, but if you're in a real gusty storm you're going to want to pop in some headphones or ear plugs. To avoid high winds but not set up in a potential flash flood area, I like to look for good rock or tree protection and avoid setting my tent on bluffs/hilltops at all costs.

            I hope that helps, and if you have any further questions, respond to this answer and I'll help out best I can!
