by fromBest Balance IMO the Hubba NX offers the best balance between weight, comfort and durability of all solo tents. It is well thought-out down to the details like the big mouth compression bag. Set-up and packing is fast and easy, good ventilation and views due to lots of mesh. There is a lot of headspace but it is rather narrow. A mattress fits comfortably but gear (and the dog) has to be stored in the vestibule. The light gray rainfly makes the inner of the tent bright though for wild camping green would be a better option.

by fromAwesome all around solo tent I bought the older version of the Hubba over a year ago. Replaced another company's tent and am super happy with this one. Solid, quick to set up and easy to break down. Plus you can use it three ways: fly, screen and full set up. Its worth the cash... I also hike with at least one dog. Its tight, but I can get two dogs and me in this thing and that's great for a solo tent.

by fromGreat features, added a few more I have always liked this tent from its inception but a couple of things were deal breakers. The 'NX' has addressed these and more. The original was claustrophobic, but at 30" wide, with the re-optimized interior volume and the upper rear vent it's perfect for an extended stay in bad weather. The raised lower sidewalls keep out breezes, blowing dust and snow, perfect as I have to mess with contact lense solutions. The new 'vestibule zipper' arrangement seems to be a 'love or hate' thing, I love it. The materials give confidence in extreme conditions. I have done a couple of mods because I like to do that stuff. 1) a small pull-out loop on the bottom of the fly at head and foot. Deployed in rain, they help deflect rain from the exposed floor 2) a guy-out loop about a 1/3 of the way up each side of the longitudinal main pole for obvious reasons and along with the standard front and rear anchor points the tent should be a 'rock' in severe weather. Colour is always personal, but I really do like the grey and red. Great job on the NX guys. I also may or may not add 2 short zippers to the mesh interior so I can access the vent cover from in-side. Time will tell.

by fromGreat Backpacking Tent I have only used the NX that I bought recently a couple of times but British weather being what it is both outings involved a good deal of rain. The NX is first of all very light, a major plus when you are out for more than a night (my old tent was a very well used Zoid1 which was much smaller but weighed more!). It is quick to set up and once up is very stable. The pegs that are supplied are little works of art in themselves. Space is great (I am just under 6') and allows gear to be stored in the tent and also under the fly where it is also easily possible to cook even in foul weather. The little rain gutter things work well and stop the worst of the water dripping into the tent when you unzip in the morning. A well thought out and very useable tent - excellent.

by fromLightweight and freestanding I got this for bicycle self supported touring and I couldn't be happier. Most UL tents at this weight are not free standing, but the Hubba is. So if conditions are not windy and you don't need the extra stakes, set up and take down are faster. And it is super easy to set up and does not require constant fiddling with the stakes and guys to get it right. Which is nice after a day on the bike when I am too tired to deal with such things. The big flat roof does not lend itself to an attic, but a side pocket would be a welcome addition. Maybe it is small and I have not seen it yet?

by fromGreat overall package Used many different tents over the years and this is the best overall package I have used. I do mostly cycle touring and like the ease of setup after a long day on the road. It is easy to pack and is light weight without sacrificing quality and providing excellent shelter in bad weather. Liked it so much that I bought it's bigger brother the Hubba Hubba hp as well. Can't go wrong with these , good stuff.

by fromMSR Hubba tent I was looking for a lightweight solo tent that could hold a candle to my six-pound Moss tent. I canoe camp year round and needed something that would keep me dry in the worst of weather. The Hubba has passed the test with flying colors, withstanding monsoon rains and 40 mph winds. I had tried bivy sacks and found them too confining. Not the Hubba. It's wide enough to allow plenty of elbow room and it's high arch allows me to sit out the rain in my Thermarest chair and read, write or meditate.
