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
- Good 1+ person Tent
Likes: I usually hike alone or with my large dog. We fit nicely in this tent with plenty of extra space for stuff. Having 2 doors is great when my dog needs to get out and our gear is under the other vestibule. The pockets at either end are very helpful for storing your small object and keeping my glasses off the floor. This tent is light weight and packs small.
Dislikes: I really wish it had hooks to attach a floor protection fabric. I purchased a Nemo Galaxi 2P Pawprint to protect the floor of the tent from Samson's nails. But with out a place to anchor the corners down, it moves around to much. Also a small overhead pocket would be nice so you could place a light above.
- Backpacking tent
Likes: Light and easy to set up. I'm sleeping in it tonight - first time! Roomy for one person, intimate with two.
Dislikes: Nothing yet!
- MSR HUBBA HUBBA NX
Likes: I purchased for backpacking i used on this week Was easy to put up by myself Overall great tent and is light compared to others.
- It's almost perfect...
Likes: The ease of setup is a big win - there's are reason they don't include much in the way of instructions, they aren't necessary, it's pretty intuitive. I couldn't wait to give it a try, so with rain in the forecast and temps in the high 30s, I set it up in the backyard, footprint used. It was up within 5-10 minutes, tops. The vestibule when guyed out was more than ample for a pack and miscellaneous gear. I stayed perfectly dry in a steady rain, as did the gear in the vestibule. It packs down really small, especially when the pole assembly is removed from the tent bag and carried externally. Nice light weight for a good bit of room...
Dislikes: While there are a couple of mesh storage areas at the head and foot end, it'd be nice if an included mesh could be added to the top of the tent for storage of light objects. And that's a really minor dislike, something could be easily fashioned to make use of a bit more space.
- Love The Space
Likes: Enough Space For 1 Adult and Trail Dog
Easy to setup
Dislikes: Nothing, love it!
- great tent!
Likes: Keeps you reallly dry, even in heavy rain. Very light material, and super easily packable (unique stuff sack design is pretty cool and it's easy to pack up and set up). Nice vents in the rain fly to increase air flow even when it's raining. The little stakes it comes with have worked well so far on grass and dirt
Dislikes: One critique is that it would be nice if it came with netting in the top to store gear--it has hooks so looks like you could rig something up easily (maybe MSR even sells something?). Has mesh pockets at head and feet though
- Great Tent
Likes: Lightweight, Quick Setup and roomy.
- Although I just purchased the tent and haven’t used it yet, I was referred to this tent by a Pacific Crest Trail thru-hiker who completed her hike last year. She had raving reviews on the tent after having tried several other brands over the years.
Likes: Light weight, roomy, mesh for airflow, light weight poles for support, no guy lines needed, bug & snake proof, and bathtub type bottom to keep water out!
The rain cover can be used as a tarp with the poles for ultra-light backpacking.
Dislikes: I would like to see a model sized in between the 1 man tent and the 2 man tent to further reduce weight for a single hiker that needs ample space.
- Great tent!
Likes: After lots and lots of research i went with the hubba hubba nx2. The weight to comfort and livability of this tent just surpassed most other backpacking tents. I also love the rain gutter great design and well ventilated for almost 4 seasons.
Dislikes: The color is not the best if needing to stealth camp.
- Awesome tent!
Likes: Roomy, lightweight.
