The MSR Hubba NX is the lighter weight next generation of MSR's highly acclaimed Hubba tent. Designed for solo backpackers, the freestanding Hubba NX weighs a mere 2 pounds, 7 ounces.
The unique pole configuration of the Hubba NX provides 18 square feet of interior space and a full 36 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 NX. A vestibule offers an additional 9 square feet of 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 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 door 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 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 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 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
- Lightweight and Comfortable
Likes: Small pack size. Lightweight. Lots of features for the size and weight. New upgrades are nice like the added guy lines, and vestibule zipper location. I used this and my buddy used the older version so we got to compare side by side both performed well but the new features give it an edge. Stayed pretty dry in a solid 24hr downpour aside from the tent walls getting some condensation. Small but plenty of room to sit up and roll around I’m 5’10 175lbs and didn’t feel restricted.
Dislikes: Decent amount of condensation build up on flat roof of tent body. I had to wipe it dry a few times that’s why I didn’t go 5 stars. This can lead to a wet head if you are taller and sit up and your head rubs but it never dripped on me laying down or anything. Also that’s where the gear loft goes so I wonder if it would get your gear wet I didn’t have a gear loft attached so I’m not sure. It was pretty cold 35ish at night with showers so that may have contributed to the added moisture.
- most fav tent
Likes: switched from a bivy since the weight was about equal. easy fast setup. so many little features ya never realize are important ie. rain gutter. get the footprint to keep in shape if on rocks.
- Great Tent
Likes: Very well made tent. Light weight and compact. Set up is straightforward. Used three nights in the Boundary Waters and it stayed dry inside despite heavy rain showers and high winds all three nights.
Dislikes: The tarp anchor point on the lower section of the long wall opposite the door needed to be tied out to a tent peg with some light rope to keep it from coming in contact with the inner mesh screen. It was too high to use a regular tent stake.
- very good single person BP tent
Likes: freestanding, light weighted, enough space for 1 person. easy to set up
Dislikes: hope the weight can be more light
- Perfect Size and weight for solo backpacking
Likes: Plenty of ventilation
- Awesome 1-Person Tent
Likes: The Hubba NX is super-light and packs down small. It has a really well designed stuff sack that's really easy to pack the tent back into. It's relatively roomy and can stand up without being pegged down, great for camping on hard-packed ground or rocks. The zippers on it are great and never bind either.
Dislikes: The only knock on it is that you have to buy the footprint separately.
