“The MSR Hubba Hubba NX2 is an excellent, ultra light, compact and high-quality tent. It’s freestanding and versatile, can be quickly put up anywhere in the world whatever the terrain. It’s perfect for motorcycle travellers.”
MSR is a high-quality and well-known brand and the Hubba Hubba NX is one of their flagship tents and bestsellers. It’s a lightweight, dome style three-season tent. It was developed for backpacking and mountaineering, so it’s been specifically designed to be light and compact. But as it’s a dome tent, it’s still very roomy inside.
Here are the tent specs:
- Weight: 1.72 kg
- Packed dimensions: 46 x 15 cm
- Sleeping floor dimensions: 127 x 213 cm
- Interior height: 100 cm
- Style: Dome
- Doors: 2
- Freestanding: Yes
- Vestibules: 2
- Removable fly cover: Yes
- Can be used without inner body: Yes
The MSR Hubba Hubba is a high-quality tent with premium components. That shows when looking at the weight and pack dimensions. MSR have managed to get the Hubba Hubba NX2 (two-man tent) down to an ultra light 1.72kg – that’s one of the lightest tents you can get. And the pack size is 46x15cm, which is exceptionally small for a two-person tent. The materials and poles are light but still strong and durable.
We haven’t found any negatives with the Hubba Hubba. It’s worth noting that it’s worth going up a man-size as there’s not a lot of space in there. As we’re two people with motorcycle gear and luggage going into the tent every night, we probably would have gone for the three man tent in hindsight.
