Sweet superlight 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 Durashield PU coatings. 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.

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.

The perfect tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What else is there to say about the Hubba Hubba that hasn't already been said? If the many reviews here don't convince you, just check out every other site that sells this tent. Absolutely worth shelling out the extra dough if you're looking for a super reliable tent that is good for backpacking but is sturdy/roomy enough to suit your car camping needs. Not to mention MSR's stellar customer service if the poles ever break or the tent needs repairs.

5 stars

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As of now this tent as 34 - 5 star ratings and it's pretty obvious why. The tent is perfect for backpacking. It's very lightweight, packs down, and is durable. It's easy to use, too. It's a bit pricey, but definitely has been worth every penny.

Does it All!

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

I bought this for my dad for his birthday! However, he shared some thoughts on it:

"The Hubba Hubba does it all and makes it easy. The first thing that you'll notice is that it weighs under 4 pounds and compresses down enough to fit inside most packs - perfect for your week-long trips. The tent is easy to set up with a single, super-light spider-pole. The tent feels a little shorter than most 2 person-tens, buy it provides plenty of headroom. The tent is definitely a bit pricey, but the quality and weight make the tent well worth it. "

Awesome tent!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like most things MSR does this tent is outstanding! While it's probably not quite light enough to be a true ultra-light it is likely lighter than what you're currently using and it keeps features that you would likely lose if you went any lighter. In my personal opinion having two vestibules and some mesh pockets inside the tent is worth the extra couple of grams. Having just one pole makes it very easy to set up and take down even in less than ideal situations. The fast pitch option is great if you are trying to drop some weight and are not concerned about bugs. If you're really counting grams you can even do it without the footprint, just using the poles and fly.

In terms of size it is a true two person tent, I have shared the tent with my buddy who is over 6 feet tall and we were tight but not uncomfortably so.

The one downside I have found so far is that like all things made of nylon the rain fly shrinks when it's warm and particularly when it is in direct sunlight which can make it very difficult to get the fly on over the poles. Often times it feels like I am going to rip the fly just trying to get it in place but so far it has held up.

Awesome tent!

Upgrade your backpacking game!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This tent has it all! Durability, lightweight, and packs down small. I took this most recently on a 30 mile backpacking trip and moved our base camp everyday. Packing up this tent is super easy and even got rained on as well. Tent stayed super dry as well as my gear. Not much else I can say abou this, I totally recommend this tent to anyone looking to shed LBS in their backpacking gear.

Repeat Purchase for a Reason

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

10/10 in every category for an all around 2 person tent. Perfect balance of weight, durability, packability, and comfort. Light enough for backpacking and livable enough for car camping. The original Hubba Hubba was my go to tent for the past 5 years and the NX improves on all aspects that made the original great. All the details are dialed from the stuff sack to the zippers, nothing has been overlooked. If you are after one tent to rule them all this is the one.

Lightweight and durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this tent to use on long backcountry excursions because of how light weight it is. I have been extremely pleased that it also turned out to be the most durable tent I've owned. The tent is still perfectly waterproof after countless nights in rain and wind storms. If bugs aren't an issue I love being able to leave the tent behind and just set up the fly to cut down drastically on weight and space. With this tent you definitely get what you pay for.

Lightweight and durable

Great tent

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

First use, 2 night adventure that featured 20+ hours of rain, 30+ mph wind, and 28 degree low temps! Tent stayed dry, not a drop inside. Held the warm in, kept the wind out. Supplied stakes actually worked well in saturated soil. Used with MSR footprint. Light weight, easy set up, even in the pouring rain. Very pleased with the purchase

Light weight tent for moto adventures

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this tent more than a year ago.

It's very spacious for one person. Fits 2 adults shoulder to shoulder without any problems.

Lightweight and easy to pack and set up.

Happy with my decision to get the Hubba 2 person tent.

Your search for the perfect tent is over

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm really stoked on this tent. Before getting it, I did a lot of research and whenever I saw people using it in the mountains, I would ask how they like it. Let me save you a bunch of time and say that this tent is one of the best ones out there. It's spacious, light, versatile and effortless! Some of my favourite features: It stands up to the test of rain/light snow. It has two doors. It's SUPER light and packs perfectly in my overnight bag. It's easy to pitch. I could go on and on...

PS. I got the footprint as well—it protects the tent and worth it in my eyes.

Best Philmont trail home!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was my home away from home for 20 days on the trail when we had no idea what was happening the next day. Every night we were kept comfortable and stench free with plenty of mesh and room for wide sleeping pads. The double doors had our crew mates jealous as they had to crawl in and out of their tents that were tunnel style with one door at the end. Very waterproof and breathable in heavy storms and will hold up to large hale as well. Also highly recommend the ground cloth it fits well and lets you set up anywhere without major preparation just to avoid a puncture in the floor.

Super nice tent!

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

This tent is awesome. It’s super light, easy to set up and roomy for a 2 person backpacking tent. I took it to Moab a few weekends ago and set it up in the dark and it didn’t take long at all. It’s nice that this tent has two doors. I have yet to use the fly because it was so warm in Moab. I will probably end up getting the footprint because the floor material of the tent is pretty thin. I am excited to take this tent on more trips!

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.

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.

How noisy is the rainfly in wind?

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!
