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
- Backcountry favorite
Likes: Reasonably light, roomy, ventilated. Great stuff sack. An easy pick when you don’t really want to think about what tent to get, especially when after thinking long and hard, you’ll likely pick this tent as well.
Dislikes: As usual with tents, cozy for two.
- I’m so happy I purchased through BCE, everything came on time and I’m very happy with their return policy. I will be putting this tent to use in a few days so I can’t say much about it but based on other reviews, I’m sure it won’t let me down.
Likes: Everything came on time. Free shipping. Overall, I’m happy with Backcountry Edge and the tent itself.
Dislikes: I have not found any.
- Great tent
Likes: Lightweight but not enough to feel fragile
Dislikes: None yet
- Exelent tent
Likes: the best weight-to-reliability ratio - that is, you can find less weight, but reliability will suffer
very large interior space
good attention to pleasant little things
Dislikes: in the first generation were the best pins)
- lightweight 3 seasom tent
Likes: MSR Hubba Hubba NX2 my favorite tent for two people: lightweight, spacious and very comfortable
Dislikes: maybe price?
- Lightweight, roomy, and easy to set up.
Likes: Lightweight - Total trail weight including the footprint was 4.5 lbs.
Spacious - The tent never felt small at any time. One night, we realized we were sleeping downhill, we simply switched our mattresses and problem solved. The way some of the other tents in this category are designed, you'd have to get out and rotate the entire tent otherwise you'd be sleeping on top of each other due to the narrowed foot box area.
Easy Set Up - one set of poles that can't be messed up. The only thing that confused me the first time was the rain fly but that happens with all new tents I set up.
Ability to set up without the tent - One night, we set up just the footprint and rain fly. On cooler trips where mosquitoes aren't an issue, this would save a pound or two.
Dislikes: The zipper at the bottom of the doors can snag if you're trying to open too fast and if the tent isn't taut.
I wish there was an overhead pocket to hang a headlamp but it wasn't a deal breaker.
- Amazing tent
Likes: One of the best backpacking tent! Lighweight, two entrances, very comfortable for two people, easy to set up. I highly recommend this tent!
- 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
