The MSR Hubba Gear Shed is an extra storage space for your Hubba or Hubba Hubba tent. The shed connects to the front door of your tent, offering a place to shield your pack from the rain and a place to kick off your muddy shoes. The extra area allows easier entry/exit from your tent than the standard vestibule, so you don't have to clamber over your pack or other gear. You could even tuck your camp chair right into the opening, kick back and enjoy a view while being shielded from too much afternoon sun.
FEATURES of the MSR Hubba Gear Shed
Integrated Floor: Partial floor creates a clean place to store gear out of the way
Versatile: Adapt your backpacking tent into your park and play base camp tent or add space for extended backcountry stays
Convenient: Extra-large door and integrated design allows convenient, covered access to your gear
Compatibility: Works with all existing Hubba, and Hubba Hubba tents including NX and HP versions
Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

.5 Man Tent!I'm all about systems, any piece of gear I buy gets a thorough inspection on how and what system it will fit in, and this piece of gear is a must have for anyone with the "Hubba" or "Hubba Hubba" tents. As stated in the title this piece of gear will add .5 person to either tent, turning a Hubba 1p to 1.5p. It is excellent for solo trips in the cooler months where more gear is required and you can store it safely in the shed. Or if your furry friend tags along and you need the extra space for him to sleep (be it in the tent or in the shed). At roughly 1/3 the weight of the Hubba 1p, and almost doubles the tents coverage, it provides endless possibilities for storage convenience, and comfort.

Much more space for so little additional weight!My wife and I love to go backpacking with our dog, which is an 85 pound golden retriever. It was very cramped in the Hubba Hubba with all of us crammed in. The gear shed addition drastically increased the space available. Now we have room for all of our gear and the dog in the "dog" shed while leaving us with a lot of room in the main tent. We also use the gear shed while bike touring. Both of our bikes can fit in the gear shed when it is raining at night. I only have minor complaints about the shed. It does not shed water very well unless you have the tension perfect using the tent stakes. I also wish that the floor covered the entire area instead of just a partial floor.

Great for extra space!I have used the gear shed only a few times so far, since my dog has grown into a way bigger dog than expected. It's easy to put up (after watching the youtube video), awesome to have extra space to keep gear dry and in wet weather to get out of the tent without making our sleeping stuff wet. Also its a great spot to keep the dog confined at night and he still stays dry. When I go backpacking I don't usually bring it because it adds on quite a bit of weight, if the forecast is for heavy rain though, it's worth the extra effort..

Love the added out of the weather storage.I've had this a couple years now. No problems with it. Just love the added storage space mostly out of the weather to keep the packs in side. This shed fits in the original hubba hubba bag if you want just one tent bag. So easy to set up. Canoeing, packing or a quick car camping it's a must have accessory.

Almost PerfectI picked up the green version of the Shed a couple years ago and have used it about a dozen times with my Hubba NX when base camping over the past 3 years - usually when there is going to be adverse weather. I like a lot of things about the Gear Shed - it integrates nicely with the Hubba and doubles my storage space to bring gear under cover. I don't mind that it doesn't come with a complete floor - my tent vestibule does not have a floor, and a floor would hold in water when I enter/exit through the shed. I have two nits that if corrected would make the Shed a 5-star superstar attachment. (1) use a lighter weight fabric, closer to the fabric used on the tent fly (maybe drop from a 40d to a 20d??) which would drop the weight of the Shed 25-35% below 1.5# making the combo weight of my Hubba and the Shed reasonable for carrying on wet backpacking trips (i.e., keeping the combined weight under 4#), and (2) incorporate the "rain gutter" design into the Shed zipper (like on the Hubba NX fly) so that rain and water would be channeled around the zipper instead of pouring in the Shed when I open the Shed to enter/exit. Improving ventilation to reduce condensation would be nice but that may add weight and complexity to a simple design.

Gear Shed Hubba Hubba basic reviewYou also use it in Ferrino Pumori tent. I tested it in two extreme conditions and it's answer pretty well. The first one was with a Ferrino Pumori tent in high mountain, 4000-5000m in the middle Andes range from Chile, with strong wind conditions, but it did not compromise the stability of the tent. The second time, i tested in rainy and very wet conditions in Cochamo (Chile), and it was not very good, his waterproof is not the best and it hasn't thermosealed in floor.
I have never tested with snow.
Really lightweight and easy to set.

Must-have accessory!I just bought this for my Hubba Hubba, have used it twice, and it's worth every penny. Perfect way to expand the space of my tent without having to go to to size of a 3 person tent. Quick and easy to setup.

Hubba Gear Shed, where have you been all my lifeDon't know how I missed the Hubba Gear Shed before.....and I don't know how I've lived without it. I do a lot of horse camping. I have a pack saddle for one horse, to carry gear and I ride the other horse. This has kept me outdoors, even after my old back gave out, transferring the gear load to the horse (I still use only ultralight gear, with pack weight less than 60 pounds, or something stays home). The Hubba Gear Shed provides a dry saddle storage area, out of the frequent rain and heavy dew (Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, etc.). The Gear Shed now solves one problem unique and critical to horse camping.....You don't ever want to put a wet saddle on a horse and you don't want to sit/ride in one all day long....both will create galling, on the horse's backs and on the riders rump and legs. Trust me, it's miserable for both pack horse, riding horse and rider. This makes the Hubba Gear Shed a most critical and necessary piece of gear. After buying and using the MSR Hubba Hubba tent for a couple years, I was perusing the MSR website and stumbled onto the Hubba Gear Shed...."OH MERCY", said I...."I got to have one of them". I bought one....and I now have plenty of dry storage for the pack saddle, my riding saddle...my other gear and the horse feed which also must stay dry. There's now room in the tent for the pitbull....instead of sleeping with smelly old saddles and saddle pads....also miserable. LOL. I highly recommend the Hubba Gear Shed for cyclists, horse campers, car camping, etc. I'm buying another one for the other side of the tent, for the other door....so I can stay under cover when I cook (very carefully) in the rain....using my 21 year old MSR Shaker Jet stove. Not to worry, the stove sits out in the rain (and cooks just fine) while I stay covered and dry. For the record, I do NOT cook in the tent, under the tent fly, or under the Gear Shed.....not even with an MSR.
