MSR have redefined the benchmark for lightweight hiking tents with the Hubba Hubba NX. This popular and reliable lightweight shelter that has been redesigned, and now weighs in at a mere 1.54kg and boasts a packed size that will have you searching for a smaller rucksack.
With the use of high tenacity nylon fabrics, MSR have maintained strength and weather resistance, reduced weight, still managed to add in more features, and packed it all in a versatile, lightweight compression sack.
Two large D-shaped StayDry™ entrances now feature built in rain gutters to direct running water away from the vestibule. Adjustable end vents and multiple rainfly configurations optimise ventilation, and include options to completely roll the fly back for a stargazer view on clear nights, or pitch in fast and light configuration with the optional groundsheet.
The DAC Featherlite NFL all-in-one hub and pole system maximises interior space, while adjustable stake out loops, lightweight reflective guy ropes and the six MSR MiniGroundhog™ stakes ensure the MSR Hubba Hubba is pitched perfectly every time.
First use was in the Wild Dogs & the tent met all expectations, plenty of room for 2 with sleeping mats, great ventilation resulting in no condensation on a very cold night & outer fly dried in a few minutes after the sun hit it. Very pleased with the purchase!
As expected. This is not a two person tent rather a comfortable one person with a bag or two. But i knew this before purchasing. I use a helinox cot one stretcher and it just fits nicely with a bag. This tent is super light and extremely easy to setup and pack away. I am the kind of person who has arguments with the mrs when setting up tents, hence why I use swags, but I needed a tent for my motorbike trips. I would go so far as I say this is a male proof tent...
We took our MSR Hubba Hubba NX tent with us on a 6 night walk on the Great North Road Newcastle to Sydney. Lots of wind and rain the tent was rock solid throughout. I recommend the footprint it kept the base of the tent clean and added extra protection. The Ground Hog Tent pegs are lightweight however we found them to be very sharp so warn others to carry a few more grams and take the old MSR curved pegs a cut foot in camp is the last thing anyone needs.
We took this tent on a winter hike through Mt. Crawford on the Heysen Trail, and spend a few nights with 3 of us in the tent due to a failure of our other tent. It performed fantasically in the pouring rain, and kept all of us and our gear dry with only minor space issues. The pole design is very smart, and gives you a nice amount of space for a pack and boots on each side in the vestibule. Dual openings also make it handy for the middle of the night toilet user!
Are the seams fully taped on the inner and fly?
I've just had a look at the display model in store, and the MSR Hubba Hubba NX definitely has fully taped seams on both the inner tent and fly.
Some camping locations require you to camp on a wooden platform/deck where the tent cannot be staked down.Can I pitch the tent without staking it down?
G’day Nick, the Hubba Hubba NX tent from MSR would work perfectly on a wooden platform as it is freestanding. The only thing is - we would highly recommend picking up the matching footprint as you’ll need to protect the underside of your tent from the hard wooden surface (Snowys code: 33861).
