MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2 Person Tent

MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2 Person Tent


After doing months of research and going through countless WebPages in search of the best lightweight and roomy tent for me, I decided that the Hubba Hubba NX 2 Person 3 Season Tent was it.





It was the tent that kept coming up throughout my searches as the most popular for cycle touring and backpacking, due to its space, durability, and weight.


MSR says: 


Reinvented as the most livable tent available for its ultralight weight, the bestselling MSR Hubba Hubba 2-person backpacking tent now weighs in at a trim 1.54 kg / 3 lb 7 oz. Ultra-compact and precision-engineered, the tent feels as light and efficient to use as it does to carry. From its optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor that maximize space, down to its integrated, adjustable stake-out loops that speed setup, this tent redefines livability.


Whether you’re setting out to climb the Sawatch Range or circumnavigate Mount Rainer along the Wonderland Trail, the freestanding, 3-season Hubba Hubba tent lets you enjoy the full backcountry experience — including time spent in the tent.


Hight inside was very important, not because I'm 6ft, but because I just want to be able to sit up and move around and just try to feel at home, as this will in fact BE my home for most of each week when I can't find cheap or free digs.


It had to be really light, yet strong, and be freestanding. I'm made up with it and it has been purchased and will be here in a few days. I will give a full review once I start to actually use it.

Well I have now been using this tent and the gear shed attachment for 3 months, and I love it. It's all really light and easy to set up, and the zips are ll good, no bugs getting in, and it dries out quickly too. Just love it.
