Product Description Item No.   10238369

The MSR Hubba NX 1-Person Tent is a solo tent for backpacking the great outdoors on your own. The tent is freestanding and can be pitched quickly thanks to the single DAC Featherlite NFL pole. The tent body is a combination of 20D nylon ripstop and 15D mesh to create a barrier between you and all the little bugs on the other side. The rainfly features 1200mm Durashield™ polyurethane and silicone to protect against the rainiest days on the trail, with a floor of 30D ripstop nylon, 3000mm Durashield™ polyurethane and durable water repellent. That was a mouthful and sounded super science-y, but that is probably a good thing and you can trust you'll stay dry through the storms. The single door and single vestibule open wide for speedy entry/exit, just stake everything out with the included MiniGroundhog™ stakes. Lightweight and versatile, you can go from 2 lbs, 14 oz all the way down to 1 lb, 10 oz; just remember folks, footprint not included, it's totally sold separately.

DWR tech

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Balance IMO the Hubba NX offers the best balance between weight, comfort and durability of all solo tents. It is well thought-out down to the details like the big mouth compression bag. Set-up and packing is fast and easy, good ventilation and views due to lots of mesh. There is a lot of headspace but it is rather narrow. A mattress fits comfortably but gear (and the dog) has to be stored in the vestibule. The light gray rainfly makes the inner of the tent bright though for wild camping green would be a better option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent comfort, and very well designed I bought this almost two years ago now and can safely say I've taken this product with my halfway across Ontario camping in the St. Lawrence lowlands all the way up to sunset country in northwestern Ontario, I've slept in this tent through wicked thunderstorms and torrential downpours, also slept in this tent in the winter with a -30 sleeping bag very comfortable and beautiful view of the cold winter stars without the rain fly on. Should be no problem storing gear while the tent fly is up unless you like to bring your entire arsenal with you. Having a small tarp to put your gear on a gear line is not a bad idea as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They stand behind thier products! My rain fly on my Hubba Hubba began to show signs of deteriation. I sent it in for repair and received a new fly, no questions asked! I also had noticed that they had gone to a new design to hold the straps of my Lightning Acsent snowshoes. I sent an email to inquire as to how I could get some for mine and they promply mailed me the new style of clips at no charge. Thank you MSR! (For the record, two of my snowshoeing companions are now the proud owners of Lightnig Ascents based on my snowshoes and the great service I have received. One also has the Hubba Hubba.) I'll add that I have had my tent in heavy rains and wind and it performed flawlessly. I highly recommend their products!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid tent but could be better I bought 4 of these tents for backcountry fieldwork this past summer. Overall myself and my crew were satisfied but not blown away by the Hubba NX. The Good: This tent is waterproof! One day we came back to camp to find that in the torrential hail/rain downpour we had experienced that afternoon one of the tents was floating in a 2 inch deep puddle. Upon un-staking and moving the tent we found that all the contents inside were completely dry. The tents also withstood some heavy downpours and relatively little condensation. The Not-so-Good: There were several aspects of the tent that put us off over the course of the summer. 1. It's heavier than other single person tents despite their streamlined minimalist feel. Having only one mesh pocket inside didn't make sense to us as an important way to cut weight... 2. The poles are bulky and can break without any prompting. One of the tents had a pole snap while it was being set up. As in, we were putting together the tent pole and it broke. This was disconcerting and not the only time I have seen MSR tent poles break under very light stress. For the weight and diameter of the tent poles I would not expect this to happen, I have used other brands of tents with lighter, smaller poles that have withstood more trying conditions better than MSR poles. 3. There was a weird smell for quite some time. The tents put off an odd rotten citrus smell for almost half the summer. We used them for ~60 days of backpacking over three months so we lived in these tents, granted we smelled pretty bad, but so did the tents and they all had the same odor. 4. These tents despite advertising 85" floor length are not meant for the tall. Two of our group were taller than 6' and they said sleeping in the tent felt like sleeping in a coffin or cocoon. The rapid way the tent walls rise meant that stretching out was difficult without having their head and feet shrouded in tent fabric. Flexing the toes outwards also meant a tightening of the head room for the taller folks. If you're short though they're a great fit! 5. The "rain gutter" that is used as one of the selling points of the tent in the overview video is great at piping rain water straight under your tent or into your vestibule. Overall: The tents worked well in a variety of summer conditions ranging from snow to rain to sun and wind. They provided relatively light and easy to setup shelter however for their price point I believe that they should have been outstanding as opposed to just okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all around solo tent I bought the older version of the Hubba over a year ago. Replaced another company's tent and am super happy with this one. Solid, quick to set up and easy to break down. Plus you can use it three ways: fly, screen and full set up. Its worth the cash... I also hike with at least one dog. Its tight, but I can get two dogs and me in this thing and that's great for a solo tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous tent and the best customer service! I thru-hiked the AT in 2005 with my Hubba. Ended up buying a Hubba Hubba as well for my son and daughter to come along when they could. Those tents have been wonderful, easy, light-weight backpacking tents. Just recently returned the rainflies to Cascade Designs as the tape had begun peeling from the Hubba. However, I sent them both for evaluation and/or repair. I received two new rainflies in return. Now THAT is customer service I never expected but greatly appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic 1 Person Option! After years of doing solo trips with a bivy bag and tarp I was fortunate enough to borrow a friends MSR Hubba for a 4 day trip. The tent actually weighted about 80g less than the bivy & tarp combination! I was so happy to be able to sit up and easily get dressed in the tent when raining or mosquito infiltrated, something that years of bivy never afforded! I promptly went out and got one for myself following the very first trip with it and have loved it ever since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lighweight small volume but drafty in cold weather I bought this tent, because it fits exactly on one half of the trampoline, on my Hobie Cat FxOne. I also use it on the beach but in high winds and lower temperatures, around 12 centigrade, it's so drafty, I need extra clothing. This is because the outer tent doesn't go all the way to the ground but leaves an opening of 10 cm all around the tent and the interior tent has only flynetting on the upper half with no way of closing off this part. This does however mean that it's a perfect tent for warm weather and the tropics. In my other tent, I dreaded the humidity and heat inside the tent, but had to go inside anyway, because of the NoNo insects. The Hubba NX can even be set up with only the inner tent, giving you a freestanding flynet but without see through on the lower part (for decency ;-) ) There is a high stress point, where the horizontal "roofpole" meets the outer tent and without treatment I'm sure it will go through, giving time. The factory should have placed a reinforced pocket for the pole here. I have reinforced the two places with 3-4 layers of spinnaker tape and expect this to be sufficient but it's disappointing that MSR didn't do this, when everybody can see that this is a potential failure area and it's quite an expensive tent. I would also have liked some cloth, to close off the flynetting, as there is in most all other tents.
