MSR Hubba Tent Series Overview
MSR Hubba Tent Series Overview Video
When we first introduced Hubba tents, they were the pioneers of the innovative hubbed pole design that changed tents forever. Hubba tents continue as one of the best options in all-around backpacking performance and now have a new look along with our improved, DuraShield coating.
We developed Dura Shield to better resist the effects of hydrolysis, delivering weatherproof performance that lasts more than 4x longer than our previous, high-end polyurethane coating. Standard coatings degrade over time, due to a break down of the polyurethane. All MSR tents for 2011 are built with fabrics that have our proprietary DuraShield coating. We’ve further improved the performance of our weatherproof fabrics by applying a silicone durable water repellent kiss coat that enhances the surface finish of the material. This increases UV resistance, offers faster drying, and better packability.
The Hubba’s unique pole configuration provides maximum interior space. Stay dry entrances and large vestibules provide protection from the elements when caught in strong storms. Mesh canopies offer excellent ventilation and protection from bugs in warmer climates. The Hub system reduces the number of individual poles, making set-up fast and easy. Hubba tents can be pitched free-standing in several lightweight configurations.
New for 2011, the Gear Shed is an accessory that can be added to your Hubba, increasing the size of your vestibule. The Gear Shed is ideal for creating that comfortable basecamp-style entrance - turning a Hubba Hubba into so much more than just a great hiking tent. The added space provided by the Gear Shed offers room to stash extra gear, a cooler, dry out wet gear, or in a pinch, it can be used to sleep an extra person.
There are three models in the Hubba collection. Hubba, our most popular free-standing solo tent, weighs just 2 pounds, 13 ounces, is fitted with a full-size vestibule, a large door and has ample space to sit up in. Hubba Hubba, our classic 2-person tent, weighs just 4 pounds, offers a comfortable living area with separate vestibules and an entrance for each person. And the Mutha Hubba is our free-standing 3-person, sub-6.5 pound tent built with all the features of Hubba Hubba, increased in size for 3-person livability.
To customize your tent, we offer many accessories for the Hubba collection. Three styles of tent stake provide a balance between weight and holding power in a variety of surfaces. Footprints fitted specifically to each tent model which can be used to protect the base of your tent or to save weight pitching with just the rain fly and footprint. A cord kit that includes 50 feet of reflective cord and several cord tensioners. And the Gear Shed - an additional vestibule for any Hubba or Hubba Hubba tent weighing just 1 pound 12 ounces, providing an additional 26.5 square feet of livable space.
