The Hubba NX solo backpacking tent offers the most liveable accommodations in a lightweight freestanding design.
Engineered for 3-season camping, the light and compact tent won’t slow you down, whether you’re striking out early to earn solo views along a popular route, or finding your stride on a 10-day trek into the Welsh Mountains.
The Hubba’s optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor maximize space while other precision-engineered features, from the StayDry™ door to the adaptable, cross-ventilating rain fly, make the tent so liveable, you won’t want to come home.

Reinvented as the most liveable tent available in the ultra-light weight category and due to popular demand it is now available in the Euro Green Colour.
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 scared by bright 'unnatural' colours. As a result you set up camp discretely without upsetting the subtlety of the natural vistas.

The Hubba series has been around for several years now and has seen small tweaks and modifications year on year, but also less obvious, but vitally important changes in material technologies. I'm slightly surprised the NX isn't the EVO or Evolution.
The key features of the NX are the same as previous Hubba Hubba models, non-tapered floor plan and trans-axial pole in the roof to create the porch and to support the walls and ceiling so there is plenty of head and shoulder room to sit up in.
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 manufacturers tags and labels, weighs in at 1359 grams on the EMS office scales. The pack is slightly square and measures approximately 46x11x14cm. 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.

Question: What is the EMS returns policy?
Answer: If you don't like it send it back for a refund.... no problem! Please read on for terms and conditions.
In line with current health and safety guidelines, we reserve the right to refuse any items that are (for whatever reason) not returned to us in a clean and hygienic condition.

Please check all goods on arrive to ensure they have not been damaged in transit and report any damaged goods as soon as possible after receipt and within 14 days.
Please email or call and ask us which return service to use as we can only refund for the service we recommend.
Please note that inflatables such as sleeping mats are not considered to faulty if they become punctured and are not covered by the manufacturers warranty in this event.
If the goods have been supplied as requested but are unwanted they can be returned within 30 days from receipt of goods for a full refund provided they have not been used and are in a resealable condition with all of the manufacturer's labels and packaging intact.
Items ordered in November or December as Christmas presents can be returned to us at any time in January.
