MSR Hubba NX solo tent - is a lightweight fully featured and freestanding backpacking tent for lightweight backpackers or thru-hikers looking for convenience and comfort in one-person tent. It is best for 3-season use.
Hubba NX is built with full nylon materials. In the floor we’ve got a 30D nylon ripstop material it does have a Durashield waterproof coating, it’s a polyurethane and DWR treated floor so fully waterproof bathtub style floor on the tent. The seams are taped to ensure that waterproof performance, all of the stress points are reinforced so you do get some great durability with the rainfly. The canopy material and the kind of white panels on the sides are 20d ripstop nylon, still very lightweight but still abrasion resistant and fairly durable. The mesh is a 15d nylon micro mesh, very lightweight it’s gonna keep all the bugs out while you’re sleeping at night and allows a lot of ventilation and overall condensation control. The all-mesh walls and vent on the fly provide outstanding airflow, as does the ability to roll up the bottom of the vestibule for extra air.
The high-quality, sturdy pole set of the Hubba NX is built with aluminum DAC Featherlite NFL™ press fit poles. The DAC poles use a hub system at each end and are symmetrical so they can be flipped end for end with no issues.
MSR Hubba Hubba NX tent include everything you need for standard setup. An optional footprint accessory offers additional setup option. All Hubba™ NX series tents use a freestanding unified pole system with color coded stake out loops and clip webbing, which makes setup fast and easy. A footprint can help keep your tent clean, dry and protected from abrasion, prolonging the life of your tent. Tent can be set up in a Fast & Light® mode using the rainfly and an optional MSR® Footprint.
Hubba Hubba NX tent can be set up in a second, even lighter, floorless Fast & Light® mode, using just the rainfly, while you don’t need to buy or carry a separate footprint.
The Fast & Light® setup also makes a good first step for assembling the standard setup when it’s raining. The rainfly keeps your tent body dry while you attach the clips to the poles. The various pitching ways with the two Fast & Light® pitch modes give you lots of options for how much you want to carry or if you want to watch the stars at night. Whatever setup you choose the Hubba NX tent is as easy to take down as it is to set up.
Tent has one large StayDry™ entrance with built-in rain gutters to channel water away, so you don't get dripped on getting into or out of the tent. The mesh storage pockets on the inside for convenient storage is large enough to hold your glasses and cell phone.
This tent dimensions are 2.16 m long and 0.76 m wide, so it’s plenty of space for a single backpacker even if you have a wide long sleeping pad it’ll fit inside here very easily. It weighs in around 1.29 kg (packed weight) so it’s very lightweight for a solo tent maybe not the most ultralight tent that’s out there but for the amount of livable space and the ease of use it’s very much worth the weight. With the peak heights around 91 cm you definitely get some head height and you can sit up inside the tent very easily and very conveniently.
The tent overall has really simple design it’s got a single vestibule so you get a plenty of space there for your backpack your muddy boots or any gear you need to store outside the tent and still leave room to get in and out or to cook in.
All points on the rainfly are adjustable so you can tension it down accordingly and the same can be said for the stake out loops of the tent itself you can adjust those stake out points to get the proper tension.

It’s easy to use for a single person and it doesn’t really give any confusion when setting up the tent.
