The Hubba Hubba NX is the most popular tent in the MSR range and one of the best all-round tents for trekking and backpacking. The new Hubba Hubba NX tent is reinvented as the most liveable tent available in the ultra-light weight tent category.
The HHNX 2-person backpacking tent now weighs just 1.72kg complete and packed.
The new Dark Euro Green colour helps the NX to blend in with the green countryside found in so many parts of Europe and other temperate countries, so the hillside doesn't look scarred by bright 'unnatural' colours. As a result you set up camp discretely without upsetting subtlety of the natural vistas.
Please Note: This listing is for the EURO GREEN Hubba Hubba NX, not the grey one shown in the video. Please see our other listings if you prefer the grey colour.
The Hubba Hubba NX is also ultra-compact and precision-engineered.
The NX tent feels as light and efficient to use as it does to carry.
From its optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor that maximizes usable space, down to its integrated adjustable stake-out loops that reduce setting up time, this tent redefines liveability.
Whether you’re setting out to climb the Sawatch Range or circumnavigate Mount Rainier along the Wonderland Trail, the free-standing, 3-season Hubba Hubba tent lets you enjoy the full backcountry experience, including time spent in the tent.

The Hubba series has been around for several years now and has seen small tweaks and modifications year on year, including less obvious, but vitally important changes in material technologies. I'm slightly surprised the NX isn't named the EVO or Evolution.
The key features of the NX are the same as previous Hubba Hubba models, namely the double doors and double vestibule, non-tapered floor plan and trans-axial pole in the roof. That means getting in and out of the tent is easy and you don't have to clamber over your companion to get out, there is plenty of room for boots and packs outside the living area and the walls and ceiling are supported so there is plenty of head and shoulder room to sit up in. If you need to extend your NX, then there is the after market Hubba Gear Shed that fixes to the side to make an extra large porch.
The new NX incorporates non-drip rain gutters around the doors, extra tough infinity loop stitching in key areas, newly designed tensioning straps and loads of quality touches, but what you are going to appreciate most is the reduction in weight and pack size.
The NX when fully packed with all components and including a few manufacturer's tags and labels, weighs in at 1701 grams on the EMS office scales, or 850 grams per person if you split the load. The pack is slightly square and measures approximately 46x11x18cm. The square pack is also going to please people who need to pack it into bike panniers.
The three season rating is a Three Season U.S. rating. The States can see some fairly heavy snowfall in early Spring, so with the exception of the occasional freak storms we sometimes get with very high winds the NX should be fine all year round in the U.K. Additional guy lines are recommended for very windy conditions and winter use.
I wasn't too keen on last year's grey/white colour, so I'm really pleased to see the green model is not just in green, but a nice mid-dark mossy green. Looks like this might be the backpacking tent to beat.

FAQ - Which version of the Hubba Hubba NX is this?
This is the 2018 Hubba Hubba NX version seven (V7), which is the only version available in the UK and Europe for 2021 and 2022. There are two colours available, green and grey, with a separate listing for each colour. It has aluminium poles and it has fully tape sealed seams, so it is 100% waterproof, with no sealing or treatments required.
FAQ - Is there a specific footprint the Hubba Hubba NX?
The HHnx specific footprint was discontinued and replaced with the MSR 'Universal' Footprint (two person-Regular), which can be can be used in the same way to facilitate the 'Fast & Light' setup or ‘fly first’ pitching.
You can tie two overhand knots in the footprint’s corner cords and leave a small gap between the knots as a location hole for the pole ends. You could use the inner tent as a template to find the correct positions.
FAQ - Do I need any other accessories for the Hubba Hubba NX?
The HHnx is ready to go straight out of the box without any additions. However, for soft soils we recommend four larger pegs to go on the guy lines. For example, the MSR Groundhog or similar.
We hope you’ll never need an emergency pole splint, but we recommend one as an addition, just in case. MSR Pole Splints are lightweight and can be stored in your peg bag in case of emergency.
FAQ – How do I store my Hubba Hubba NX?
When on a trip, give the flysheet a good shake and most of the water will come off. You don’t need to dry your tent if you are going to use it again later that day. When you get back from your trip its imperative that your tent is thoroughly dried out before storing it. If possible suspend it as you would laundry for a couple of days and check it is dry before packing.
A good way to pack your tent is to scrunch it loosely into a net bag or drop it loosely into an open box with a few coin sized air holes in each side. It can then be stored at room temperature or in a cool location. Your tent can be used in any temperature, but prolonged storage in hot locations such as an attic space or airing cupboard is not recommended.
