    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.

    Love Love for the Hubba Hubba!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The previous version of this tent saved my butt one night in the craziest thunderstorm I've ever experienced out on Vancouver island. We had managed to pitch the tent in what later became a lake (learned a lot of lessons that trip) and it kept us dry and safe. So when I was researching to buy my own tent, I naturally went with this new version.

    I have been SO happy I got it....This tent is fantastic. Super light, so incredibly easy to pitch (I can do it by myself in about 3 seconds...okay, I might be exaggerating slightly, but not much!). It's strong, capable, roomy, and I love the double doors and double vestibules. It makes for easy entry/exit and plenty of protection-from-the-weather storage for everything.

    I wouldn't change a thing about this tent, and recommend it to anyone who asks me what to get.

    P.S. I did opt for the footprint since I'm often backpacking in the Sierra's where the ground is pretty tough on gear.

    Bomb Tent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I absolutely love this tent. It is easy to set up with its great freestanding design and it has held up reasonably well in the rain so far. I am looking forward to taking it more I know it will hold up well. After a long search for a tent, I am very happy with my decision to get the Hubba Hubba!

    Phenomenal tent, excellent BC service!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased this hubba hubba tent about 8 months ago before a trip to Colorado. I have used it several times in rain and cold clear weather and it has been a solid performer with its easy setup, total weight (with fp)of 4.4oz and equal sized vestibules, which allows plenty of room for a 75L Arcteryx Altra pack. This equal sizing of the vestibules was an important selling point for me so that neither person had to deal with too small a space. I'm 5'11" 160lbs and I have plenty of room with great head space. It also is sturdy enough to hold up to the wilderness with its thicker denier materials as some other 2p3s tents go thinner to cut weight , but this unfortunately compromises durability. As a surgeon, I'm pretty particular and the only issue I noticed was a rain fly pattern defect that caused a little sagging in one area. I could not get it adjusted out, so I took photos of it and sent them to BC who was extremely helpful in quickly exchanging the tent. The tent has been flawless since and I would certainly recommend both the tent and BC, due to their excellent customer service. They even sent a follow up email to make sure everything was going well after the exchange. BTW: I did order the footprint as I believe a few ounces is worth the extra protection.

    Bomber Simplicity

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Straight up easy and straight forward. I've had my hubba hubba for 7 years. This is your tent for 2 person, 3 season tent. The simplicity of this is a great for the use of backpacking, car camping, river trips or just the backyard. Two of my favorite features are 1. If you buy the footprint the "bare bones" is wonderful for reducing weight and having a more open feel when temps and bugs are not a factor 2. The ease, comfort and speed of setting it up. It's very simple to set up and stripped down of all the bells and whistle. I use this for everything.

    Room for my pooch

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this tent last year and have used it on several backpacking trips in the mountains and a few in the desert. MSR's innovative one pole system opens the tent up and allows for maximum space. My girlfriend, dog (60 LB Golden Retriever) and I fit comfortably, especially since we each get our own vestibules for our packs. At 3 LBs 13 OZ this pack is a nice choice for a comfortable weekend trip. I did test out the fast pitch option and found it to be a great way to shave a pound when I was without my girlfriend.



    One thing that I couldn't forget to mention is the rain gutters running along the entrances. Talk about awesome! On a particularly rainy trip, in the Uinta mountains, this really paid off when I had to enter and exit my tent. I didn't get any rain dumped on my head as I exited! Who knew something so simple could be so amazing.

    Room for my pooch

    Light and comfortable.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this tent as mainly a one man and one dog tent. For that it's perfect! I've slept in it with a human as well and it's still fantastic. Two doors are great, it's super light and east to pitch. All weather conditions it's preformed as expected keeping me dry. Some condensation issues on the fly on the odd morning but no drops in the tent. Haven't had a real issues with that. Just thought I'd mention it. The zippers are good, stakes kick ass, and it's stupid easy to pitch. I've had it 2 years now and with the exception of a small mystery rip in the mesh it's in mint condition being used 10 or more times a year. Going out in subfreezing temperatures with it in the next two weeks to see how it preforms in the snow, cold and Canadian winter. I'd rather take this light weight beauty than go for another 4 season at twice the weight and then some.

    Light and comfortable.

    Solid tent for the money!!

      First tested this tent out by splitting the weight between me and the better half, taking it on a 20 mile stroll through the smoky's. It's really too heavy for one person to carry by themselves. Sure glad that we had it though. Lived up to torrential down pours for hours on end and made it through the torture of a lost hound dog we rescued too boot. This tent has taken a lot of abuse over the last couple years and still holding up very well. I use it now mainly for quick overnights pretty close to the car. Simple, roomy, quality tent for the loot.

      Solid tent for the money!!

      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.

              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!
