Why We Like The Hubba Hubba NX Tent

The superlight MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person 3-Season Tent packs down small, weighs to next to nothing, breathes deeper than our yogi, and still stands up to years of camping adventures. Light in the 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 PU coatings. Vents on all four sides let the crosswinds blow to keep the inside air fresh. The nylon ripstop rainfly uses PU and silicone coatings to keep water from creeping inside.

MSR claims: Designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards for gear that lasts. This is a huge false claim. Their tents are made from cheap material that leaks and tears easily. I bought a hubba hubba nx for it's light weight backpacking. The first time I put it up on a windy day the floor of the tent tore from sliding across the ground. Frustrated, I fixed it myself. Another time I was out away from camp and it was windy, the tent was pulled from a few stakes and flipped over. Many huge holes tore into the fly from being blown around on dirt. There weren't even any rocks. I put in a warranty claim online. Over a month later, still no response, supposedly because of Covid. I eventually called and talked to customer service. The claimed it was not warrantied and didn't have the fly in stock. I had to purchase a fly from a new model tent that hopefully fits for $150. That's just the fly! I once bought a $30 tent that lasted through a tropical storm for a week. If you like lightweight overpriced tents that only last in perfect weather conditions, the MSR tents are for you, but if you don't feel like getting ripped off, go with a different brand.

Leak issue/recall

This tent is lightweight and easy to pack. Did ok in Escalante. Recently took it up to the Tetons. Had a lot of trouble with it leaking. Substantial amount of water in the tent during storms. Sounds like there has been a recall and option of obtaining sealant but pole broke on the same trip so will be replacing with something else.

I wanted a freestanding two person tent I could use for backpacking and bike packing and could not have picked a better one! It's lightweight and easy to set up. Backpacking with two people we split the weight but I have not solo backpacked with it yet. My second night using it at poured rain all night and we stayed completely dry, even on a hill. The vestibules are roomy, can store stuff under them. In temperatures down to 30° Fahrenheit it did retain some heat. Plenty of footprint room for two not-big people plus stuff, plenty of height as well. I would highly recommend this and I would buy it again.

Recall Update: Bottle of Seam Sealant

As of today (9/16/2020) Backcountry has checked all of our inventory for the the Lot #'s affected by the Recall. I spoke with Cascade Designs about the issue and they said if the tent includes a bottle of GearAid Seam Sealant then MSR has already sealed the seams on the fly regardless if the Lot # on the fly has one of the affected #'s. The bottle is for future touch ups. If your tent doesn't include a bottle of Seam Sealant, please contact our Gearheads and we will get you taken care of.

Hi Jeff, Thanks for this update. I’m interested in this tent but these quality control issues has me concerned. Questions: 1) Do you represent Backcountry.com? 2) What do you mean by “we will get you taken care of”? Can you be specific? I would be looking for a partial refund and free sealing products if the Hubba tent I purchased turned out to be not waterproof and sealed properly.

Was promised it would be factory sealed

True to size

I heard about issues with leakage online but saw that MSR was now sending tents factory sealed. Prior to purchase I inquired on the live chat about the backcountry stock of the hubba and was assured that the non factory sealed stock had been fully replaced with factory sealed inventory. When I got the tent it wasn’t factory sealed and corresponded to a “recalled” lot # (1218) on cascade designs website. Msr will send seam grip to DIY, and in non covid times would do it for you. A huge bummer to drop $300+ on a tent and have it be prone to leakage issues, especially after chatting with backcountry and being assured it wouldn’t be an issue... Lots of cool features on the tent like head room and vestibule doors that open on opposite sides (cross breeze city). Also vent opening bars that don’t 100% require staking. The Fast n Light setup works ok with the universal fly and knots tied in the stake loops or grommet mods with split washers. Look at the comment section on MSRs website for photos. Would prefer a product specific footprint with built in grommets as opposed to the $100+ bathtub floor that they now sell. Probably could have been happier with a copper spur 2 but was hoping with the factory seam sealed hubba to have a more all rounder/durable tent. Backcountry let me down a bit. Haven’t had a demonstrated leak but given the number of reports and MSRs action to take in and seam seal, I don’t quite trust it to take it out in the rain

Never sleeping in another tent

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

Dramatic, I know, but this is by far my favorite backpacking tent I've ever used. I tend to get a little claustrophobic in the typical bivvy style ultra-light tents on trips so having enough room is key for me. With this tent there's plenty of room for two people, and you can even sit up inside it. I took it on an overnight camping and climbing trip to Joe's Valley and was pleasantly surprised that I could fit two small crashpads in the tent. While it made it a little narrower for sleeping, it was the ultimate glamping set up. This thing is the ultimate all around tent whether you're just out for the weekend or headed out for a backpacking trip. It's not as lightweight as the bare minimum, but still lighter than most and packs down small. This tent is also super intuitive to set up, and with only one person can be a 5-10 minute set up even the first time. Last, but certainly not least, the bag also opens the long way with a drawstring, making for a way easier pack down. Overall, this tent was spacious and easy to use, and it will be making many more trips with me in the future.

The NX Hubba Hubba is light, sleek, durable, and eye-catching! This tent is a great trade off between size and weight, being able to still sit up, fit two people and their packs in relative comfort. All for under four pounds! I've had the pleasure to use this tent several times, both in my front yard and on lengthy backpacking trips! Even today writing this I have the option to sleep in a camper or the tent, and I choose the tent. In the lower temperatures It traps heat exceptionally well, even with only one person using it. The attached picture is from the Porcupine mountains Michigan for 35 miles of backpacking on the first trip I used this tent. I was impressed with the easy putting up and taking down of the tent is very intuitive. The ability to utilize a ground tarp already designed for the tent also added to the easy ways to protect the tent, speed pitching, and protect from ground moisture. Equally impressive when I discovered the tent stake straps and the rain fly stake straps match colors to make sure the doors match up! Overall this tent is light enough to backpack, stylish enough to make the fluorescent tenters jealous, durable enough for lengthy miles, and a sleek enough to take a battering from any windstorm you could be brave enough to fight!

Intuitive and Spacious!

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

The MSR Hubba Hubba NX is an awesome tent for short backpacking trips! I just backpacked Mount Timpanogos this last weekend where I carried it in my pack for about 16-17 miles and spent the night in 15 degree fall weather to really put it to the test. Tents are one of the things I like to rate based off their intuitiveness, and I had no problem setting it up without looking at the instructions. It's a simple design with a straightforward set up and is super spacious compared to other backpacking tents I've used in the past. There are doors and handy mesh pockets on each side of the tent, which is nice because it doesn't matter which side you end up sleeping on. Personally, I like being by the door for the inevitable midnight bathroom break! It definitely felt like I was on the more extreme end of fall camping because it was COLD. That being said, the Hubba Hubba protected me well from the wind. It was chilly at night, but noticeably colder outside despite the amount of mesh walls on the main frame of the tent. The only real downside of the Hubba Hubba is it's weight and how much space it takes up in my pack. Essentially, if you're going for a longer backpacking trip there are lighter tents that pack up smaller and I'd look at some of those. But if you're going on a weekend trip or car camping, this tent is perfect! The stuff sack it comes with does have handy little straps to cinch it down, and you could probably split the tent parts between two people to split up the weight/volume - I just happened to be on a solo backpacking adventure over the weekend. Overall impression: I'm a big fan. You might sacrifice weight a little bit for comfort, but it's really nice to be able to sit up in a backpacking tent!

Light Weight Glamping

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I recently used this tent on a multi-day trip in the High Uintas Wilderness in Utah. MSR tents have been my go-to for backpacking for a minute, and the updates to the Hubba Hubba are a delight. The symmetrical pole and tent body design make set up quick--the pole being one piece means no sorting out what goes where in the midst of a hail storm during set up (for example...). The vestibule design has heaps of room for gear to make sure everything stays dry. The Hubba Hubba has a very spacious interior with plenty of head room--very comfy for two people to lounge and set up without getting in one another's way. My one "con" for the Hubba Hubba NX is the vent design--the rigid bar/velcro system on the rain fly is not my favorite as you cannot adjust it from inside the tent through the mesh. I also found the rain fly to not keep rain out as well expected from the top of the tent (some light and dripping onto the mesh despite all the guy lines being tied out). Overall, this is a great three season tent for shorter backpacking trips!

I

check MSR website on the dripping issue. They had some recalls or repairs to this tent that should take care of this. For whatever reason they did not seam tape the rain fly thinking the double stitching would be enough. I called and mine was on the recall list and they sent me 2 bottles of seam seal, took care of the issue nicely. - Camp on

Hello, I bought a tent msr hubba hubba nx because I know that this is a quality thing, I am a very careful user, but I was very disappointed ...! on the first hike, a part of the arc broke off and an awning stuck together in the windows, pinning high hopes on this tent.

Great Tent

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

MSR does a great job making simple to use high quality products. I have used a lot of different tents from many brands and MSR always stands out with quality and ease of set-up. The Hubba Hubba NX is no exception and is perfect for backpacking or car camping . The weight is a bit heavier than other lightweight tents so if your looking to go ultralight it may not be for you. The rainfly provides ample protection in rain and wind but still breathes quite well so you dont wake up soggy. This is a simple, no frills tent with high quality materials, that gest the job done.

Easy Peazy!

This guy rocks! Super easy to set up. The poles connect very easily and cleanly! The stakes are very durable. The dirt that I was on was very hard on top and i had to pound the takes with a rock I found to get those suckers in. They held up very well against said rock, thank god! It also held up very well in the wind. Can’t go wrong with this guy.

This tent packs down to be quite small and light, but is spacious enough for 2 to sleep comfortably. Easy set-up and break down are a big plus for me. My only complaint is that I wish it had more pockets (which I find extremely helpful with backpacking or car camping).

Double wide

Familiarity:

This fit two double wide sleeping bags, so that's good news! It's all you will fit though, width-wise. But, that was plenty for us. This is a fast and simple set up and really light. It doesn't come with a footprint, but most tents don't. We didn't use one, and just were careful about where we camped. I just demoed this tent so I can't speak to the durability. But, as a Gearhead, I hear only good things from customers, so I trust it longevity and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
