MSR completely redesigned the Hubba and now the new MSR Hubba NX is available in Dark Euro Green.
The new MSR Hubba NX tent is reinvented as the most livable tent available in the ultra-light weight category. The HHNX 1-person backpacking tent now weighs just 1.29kg 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 scared by bright 'unnatural' colours. As a result you set up camp discretely without upsetting subtlety of the natural vistas.
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 livability.
Why do I need a Footprint? -- The MSR Footprint offers greater protection for the underside of your Hubba Hubba tent on rocks, gravel and gritty, sandy or rough surfaces. The footprint takes the wear & tear instead of tent floor which could add many extra years to the life of your tent. The Footprint helps to keep your tent clean in muddy conditions and allows more set up options for the Hubba Hubba (see secondary photos). The Footprint can also be used as a 'mini-tarp' which can be laid out on wet grass for picnics, wrapped over rucksacks or other gear to keep them dry, or strung up between trees to provide a rain shelter or to provide shade on hot days.
Whether you’re setting out to climb the Sawatch Range or circumnavigate Mount Rainier along the Wonderland Trail, the freestanding, 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, 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.

We have knowledgeable and friendly staff that can answer your questions about MSR tents either over the phone or via email. Just go to 'Contact Us' at the bottom of any page for our contact details.

We’ll even organise replacement poles sections if you're away from home on a trip or expedition. Just let us know via email.
Lifetime MSR Extended Warranty
MSR tents have a limited lifetime warranty which covers them for faults in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the tent, but doesn't cover normal wear and tear. If you ever have an issue with your MSR tent bought from EMS just let us know and we'll fast track your warranty enquiry so it’s resolved quickly and without fuss, even if you are mid expedition on the other side of the world.
EMS Christmas Office Opening Hours.
We will be closing for Christmas at 5.00pm on 23rd December and reopening at 9.00am on the 4th January. The phone lines will be closed, but we will still try to answer email enquires. Please note that orders placed after 1.00pm on 24th December won't be delivered until the New Year.

DPD next day and Saturday delivery services are still operating normally, but Royal Mail deliveries have been delayed in some areas by several days.
The DPD 'Pick Up Shop' network is temporarily closed. This won't effect normal deliveries, but there won't be an option to collect from your local DPD pickup point.
Stock levels are posted on each product page and at the moment there’s no supply issues reported by most brands.
In compliance with Government Guidelines we have reduced our active staff to just one person working alone to process orders. Other members of staff are still working from home to answer email and phone enquiries.

We now use recycled craft paper wadding, paper based adhesive tape, card boxes and double wall paper bags for all our order shipments. No new plastic is used at all.
We'll continue to reuse the bubble wrap and other plastic packing materials our suppliers send to us as reusing is still better than recycling.

We hope to resume export to European Union countries early in 2021.
All exports to 'Rest Of World' locations are unaffected and continue as normal, but please allow for Christmas, New Year and possible Covid related delays.
The EMS website now has ‘Smart’ currency and sales tax (V.A.T.) function which automatically displays the most appropriate currency for your location and includes the V.A.T. for UK and European Union delivery destinations, but removes the V.A.T. for all ‘Rest of World’ delivery destinations (including Channel Islands).
You can also manually select your preferred currency from the selector button at the top right corner on every page.

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.
Faulty goods can be returned for a full refund (including delivery and standard return postal charges of up to £7.50) if the item, after later inspection by us, is proven to have been faulty and returned to us within 30 days from the date of purchase.
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.
If you would like to exchange for an alternative size we will supply replacements subject to stock availability. You will have to pay to have the goods sent back to us, but we won’t charge you any shipping for your first replacement item.
All items returned must be unused and with their original labelling and packaging intact (unless faulty).
How To Send Returns.
1). You will need a returns number and a returns address. Please use the 'Contact Us' form from the 'Contact Us' page (found in the footer of this page).
