MSR Hubba Hubba Nx with Footprint
The Hubba Hubba Nx with MSR Footprint is a backpacking or trekking tent that perfectly balances weight saving against practicality. MSR have succeeded in developing a livable two person, two door tent with two vestibules that only weighs 1.7kg.
EMS Special Offer: MSR Hubba Hubba NX Combo Deal Includes MSR Footprint and Free 24hr Shipping.
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 your tent 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 stung up between trees to provide a rain shelter or to provide shade on hot days.
All Tents are shipped FREE via 24 Hour tracked courier service. (UK mainland only - may take longer for remote locations).
The new MSR Dark Euro Green colour helps the NX tent 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.
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.
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, 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.
