    Hubba Hubba NX Tent

    The superlight (3lb 7oz trail weight) MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person 3-Season Tent 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 Xtreme Shield PU coatings. Vents on all four sides let the crosswinds blow to keep the air inside fresh. The nylon ripstop rainfly uses a 1200mm Xtreme Shield PU and silicone coating to keep the water from creeping inside.

    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.

    • Ultralight tent built for two backpackers
    • 3-season versatility pairs rain fly with mesh canopy for any weather
    • StayDry doors and accommodating vestibules for gear storage
    • Fast & Light reaches a minimum weight of three pounds
    • Compression stuff sack with carry handle included
    • Item #CAS00F7

    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.

    Never sleeping in another tent

    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!

    Intuitive and Spacious!

    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!

    Light Weight Glamping

    defective

      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.

        Small & Mighty

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

        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).

        Perfect

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Great all around tent. Light weight, easy to set up, and tough material. All you need really. Definitely would recommend if you are looking for a great all around 2 person!

        Double wide

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

        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.
