The MSR Hubba Hubba NX is the lighter weight next generation of MSR's highly acclaimed Hubba Hubba tent. Designed for two backpackers, the freestanding Hubba Hubba NX weighs 3 pounds, 7 ounces.
The unique pole configuration of the Hubba Hubba NX provides 29 square feet of interior space and a full 39 inches of interior height for maximum livability. Strong and supportive, the DAC Featherlite NFL aluminum poles are extremely lightweight. MSR stakes are included to aid in securing the freestanding Hubba Hubba NX. Dual vestibules offer a combined 17.5 square feet of additional protected storage space. If you're looking for even more external storage, consider purchasing the MSR Gear Shed (sold separately) which connects directly to the tent and provides an additional 26.5 square feet of coverage.
Extensive mesh construction keeps weight to a minimum while maximizing ventilation. The Hubba Hubba NX is extremely breathable, which increases livability and combats the build-up of condensation on the interior of the tent. In warm, clear weather, you can tie back the exterior doors to allow even greater airflow. MSR's StayDry design prevents roof run-off from dripping into the interior of the tent when the fly is open.
The Hubba Hubba NX employs taped seams on the bathtub style floor and Durashield coating on the rainfly to prevent leaks. The stress points are reinforced to prevent tear-outs, and the guy lines are reflective to help you find your way back to your tent in the dark.
The MSR Hubba Hubba NX Footprint (sold separately) can be used to add durability by protecting the floor of the tent from mud, ground water, and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles. Alternatively, the Hubba Hubba NX Fast & Light Body (also sold separately) can be used instead of the footprint to provide the same underneath protection but extend coverage further with short sidewall sections that fend off wind and splattering rain. Either of these accessories enables you to leave the tent body behind (when conditions allow) and use just the poles, fly, and footprint or Fast & Light Body to pitch the tent as a minimalist freestanding shelter.

Real Customer Reviews
- Overall superior tent but footprint is needed
Likes: Very lightweight, roomy, and after a long research, in my opinion, this is one of the best backpacking tents on the market.
Dislikes: The bottom of the tent doesn't look durable enough so in my opinion footprint is necessary, and you need to buy it separately, what is strange considering tent price.
- Gift for son’s AT trip. Easy setup and features.
Likes: •Easy setup.
•Nice setup options.
•Great advice from staff!
•Four stars, as have not used on trail, yet.
Dislikes: •Initial concern about fabric durability. Therefore, purchased ground cloth and cut plastic for interior floor liner.
- Love this tent
Likes: Weight, pack size, set up all wonderful
The pole design when broken down for storage are all similar in length, so it packs nicely
Dislikes: Weird smell from rainfly
- Survived a thunder storm
Likes: My girlfriend and I put up the tent in some Utah mountains before a thunderstorm. During the storm there were gusts of 20-30 mph and rain. The tent held up perfectly and we had no issues. Setup is a breeze and the equipment seems sturdy. It's really pretty well-designed overall.
Dislikes: It doesn't come with a ground tarp to put under the tent.
- Awesome product
Likes: Very lightweight and extremely easy to set up. Even easier putting it back in the small bag it comes in. A lot of room for 2 people! I use it as a 1 man tent so I could put my hunting gear in there with me.
Dislikes: Soft material bottom. I would highly suggest buying a lightweight tent footprint.
- great tent for backpacking

Likes: ease of use

Very, Very Light.
Hands down the best backpacking tent around...
If you are willing to spend the money, buy it.
I've had a dog with nails screw up the first one I owned; Don't put dogs inside this. Only humans who know not to scratch up expensive tents.
