The MSR Papa Hubba NX 4-Person Tent is a free-standing tent for group backpacking and family trips into the woods. The Mutha Hubba has been around for awhile, and only since 2014 have gear nuts and hiking gurus been able to meet the Papa Hubba, a lightweight tent with plenty of room. The minimum weight of 5 lbs, 15 oz allows you to pack it up and carry from camp to camp along the trail, all while still featuring two doors with built-in rain gutters and two vestibules for your gear. The 20D ripstop nylon, 1200mm Durashield™ polyurethane & silicone coating on the rain fly keeps the group protected from harsh rains, while the 30D ripstop nylon with 3000mm Durashield™ polyurethane & DWR protects from wet grounds below. Now all you need to do is to draw straws for who gets to carry the tent.

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 Plenty of space I just got my tent and haven’t used it outside yet but seems to fit me the kids and my dog. I had no problem setting it up myself and packs up smaller than my three person tent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Fortress First thing, I highly recommend getting a footprint for this tent. Last month I was able to "dry pitch" in a snow storm and I was able to keep 99% of the snow out of the body. I kept it pitched for nearly a week through multiple snow storms. As temps rose and snow melted, then fell bellow freezing, ice formed but came right off. The tent stayed dry the whole week and was super warm blocking wind. I wish it came with more guyline to fully stake out since there was some sag under the weight of the snow, though it was not a problem with dryness. Secondly, it's huge. I got a bigger tent to coerce my significant other into camping with me. I figured I could always get smaller tent for when I go alone. This tent is relatively light compared to most tents that it's hard to justify the purchase of another much smaller and not significantly lighter alternative. It's definitely a backpacking tent and not your typical 4person as getting in and out takes some crouching. It's not a tall cathedral but it's also not 20 pounds. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy again but need to use it first to confirm Although it is set up in my Living room awaiting spring the quality seems great and very roomy. Our family is getting larger and our 2.5 man tent was at its tight for space. The papa is very compact in its compression sack and looking forward to exposing it to elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product. I loved this tent from the moment it was set up. Free Standing, spacious, and a good packing weight for our family overnight trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent! Great tent for a family of 4 who likes to backpack. We are thrilled with our Hubba Hubba and with kiddos we had to upgrade to more space. I highly recommend MSR tents. We haven't had this in the rain yet, but if it performs like the other Hubbas, I expect it to do well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed After researching all brands of tents we desided to pay the extra for the MSR Pappa Hubba NX4 tent, initially we were pleased with the unit with its light weight for back country camping and roominess. Once the rain came the drips in the tent were not popular. MSR are willing to evaluate the tent but now have to send it back and seems to have to buy another tent to finish our summer vacations. Disappointed since we could have gone with a new version of our tried and tested Marmot tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It passed the first test. Set it up on the deck the day it arrived. Had a good thunderstorm then heavy rain most of the night. I stayed completely dry through it all. The next test will be a week in the Boundary Waters. I'm very impressed by the amount of useable space in this tent!

Checking out the MSR Papa H for use in rocky areas where tent may not be completely staked: 1 Is this tent stable in these conditions? 2 Will netting keep out no-see-ums?

Asked by: Twinriver
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! With this tent, it works best when it's thoroughly staked. If it's not completely staked, it will still function, but we can't guarantee that the tent will be completely stable. As for the netting, MSR uses top quality, and I've never heard any problems with no-see-ums. You should be fine! Hope this helps you out!
