Designed for two backpackers but lightweight and packable enough for solo use, the freestanding Hubba Hubba NX weighs 3 lbs, 7 oz.
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. 6 MSR MiniGroundhog 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.
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.
If you prefer to travel even lighter, the Hubba Hubba NX rainfly can be used alone or in tandem with an optional footprint (sold separately), making the Hubba Hubba NX a feather-light freestanding minimalist shelter.
Two guy cords, 2 aluminum cord adjusters and a compression stuff sack with pull handle are included.

Likes: Not terribly heavy on its own. Like having the option to separate the poles and tent into two. Strapped the poles on the outside of my backpack and folded the provide msr bag in half And stuffed it into my bag This tent packs down great. Size more than enough room for one, recently completed a solo trip with it, but would be good for two. I'm six feet tall, and have a 78" sleeping bag. Pleanty of left over room at the head and feet. Setting up is a breeze, vestibule actually do keep water at bay, so if you decide to leave your bag outside the tent rest assured it won't get to wet. Recent rain storm use proved great at holding back mother nature. Ground hog spikes went in great, but a little difficult to get out, no lace loop provided on the spike but does have a pretty drilled hole if you decide to add some. The tent does setup easy, maybe 5 minutes, plenty of leg room, very little condesation, huge for one, good for two, somewhat lightweight at 3.7.
Dislikes: Not the lightest option out there at 3 lbs 7 oz, and if you go with the footprint be sure to include that weight in the total. Used it on a rainy trip on pine mountain a few weeks ago, noticed splash back got up under the rainfly and onto the main tent fabric meaning rain fly maybe a little to close to the main body of the tent for full water protection, but that's not to say water made its way into the tent, which it did not. Once the rain fly goes on, visibility goes down considerably only able to see thru two small side windows. Also be prepared to bend over when getting out if the vestibule are out.

Likes: I haven't used it yet, but from the looks it's super well made. Easy to setup with color coding. It's lightweight and packs small so 1 person can carry the entire tent vs. the hassle of distributing / collecting parts among 2 people.
Dislikes: The light gray color of the fabric. Afraid that it'll get dirty in rain / muddy weather. And I wish it came with the footprint, for the price.
Likes: Perfect tent!
Was able to easily (also comfortably) fit all of my gear inside.....slept well!
There was a bit of moisture in the mornings but I did have the rain fly on. Not a big deal at all.
Dislikes: No issues.
Likes: I had the opportunity to borrow this tent from a buddy of mine for a 3 night overnighter in emmigrant wilderness. After hauling around a heavyweight 4 person tent for so long, the lighter weight made a big difference. Tent set up was easy, condensation wasn't a problem (though it was pretty dry at the time), and the tent still seemed spacious, even coming from my larger tent. I've recently ordered my own and look forward to future adventures.
Dislikes: Footprint had to be ordered separately.
