The MSR Papa Hubba NX is a feature-rich 4-person backpacking or camping tent with a unique pole design, small packed size and a respectable weight of just 5 pounds, 15 ounces.
The unique pole configuration of the Papa Hubba NX provides 53 square feet of interior space and a full 44 inches of interior height for maximum livability. Strong and supportive, the 3 DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles are extremely lightweight. MSR stakes are included to aid in securing the freestanding Papa Hubba NX. Dual vestibules offer a combined 22 square feet of additional protected storage space.
Extensive mesh construction keeps weight to a minimum while maximizing ventilation. The Papa 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 Papa 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 Papa 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 Papa 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
- Light, Well-Made Tent
Likes: The size and features relative to the weight made this tent appear to be a good option for our family of four. The tent seems well-made, with a good balance of wall vs mesh for 3-season backpacking.
Dislikes: We planned to fit two tall adults and two grade school kids into the tent, but the angled corners of the tent prevented our four sleeping pads from all fitting, and as the kids grow taller they themselves will not fit for long. In our opinion, the angled corners make this a better 3-person tent. We returned the tent in favor of a true rectangular footprint. Great customer service from Backcountry Edge.
- So far so good
Likes: The size,weight, design and manufacturer are all above my expectations. This brand came highly recommended by a climbing buddy of mine. I haven't used it yet but I have set it up. It's a breeze.
Dislikes: The "red pole". This is a little tricky. It's more like 3 separate poles that have plastic "joiners". I'm concerned they may fatigue over a few trips.
