Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! The more seasoned peeps here can give you a long term review, so I'm going to give you the the shortest term review possible. I spent 1 hour talking with REI reps, 1 hour researching online and I knew this was the tent for me. As small and light as possible with the most amount of room and comfort for me and a guest once in a while. I purchased the tent and made sure everything was in the bag when I got home and the next day set it up in the woods in the dark in 5 minutes first time. Impressive. I tore it down in about 10 minutes two mornings later and easily put it back into its bag just as small and tight as it was when I got it. Love it, can't wait to spend more time in it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection This is the perfect tent. I spent s lot of time looking into other tents comparing, but for the weight and floor space this is the real deal. The best part is the attention to the tiny details. Even the stuff sack is perfect. I've had a lot of tents in the past, but this is the clear winner from the moment you begging setting it up. I really like the integrated tie downs and end grommets for the tent poles. In older tents I've had, this is an area that starts to wear down quickly and I love the extra durability and simplicity. I also love how the doors don't touch the ground when they are fully open. And it looks good people, how much more can you ask for!?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Current Fly has Guy Points I just received this tent and have only set it up in the yard to check it out, but I wanted to comment on what seems to be a design update. One of the few negative reviews here relates to having to use the end vent loop as a guy point, and the seeming lack of guy points was a concern to me. Online photos do not show any. There are now four dedicated guy points on the fly with adjustable guy lines already attached. They are at the end pole hubs and the ends of the cross bar. I was impressed by the seeming stability without using the guys but I'm happy to see they have been added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles High Winds Just got back from a week of backpacking in Torres del Paines Patagonia Chile. This tent was awesome. We had 105 Km/Hr winds one night with heavy rain. Not only did the tent withstand the wind but kept us dry. The ability to set up or tear down the tent under the rain fly was the main reason I bought this tent and that really came in handy on this trip. Worked just as I had expected and kept the tent dry even though we never had a dry day. It was chilly at night (30-35 degrees) and we were cold in the morning. I didn't buy this tent to keep us warm as much as to keep us dry and not to fly away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Customer Service and Warranty Issues. I have only used this tent a couple of times now, but had the model before it as well. Great little tent for backpacking. I barely notice the weight :) I am a little more careful with this one though, because it is so lightweight. These guys are SUPER to deal with for warranty issues etc.....Had an old MSR Fling, that the material had started to breakdown (older material with no UV protection), after years of use. They gave me a new tent (anything in the same price range) for the old one. I also have the Gear Shed for it as well, gives it a lot more room. Will always deal with these guys from now on, they have made me a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSR Hubba Hubba NX I must say this tent is a nice upgrade to MSR's previous model of the Hubba Hubba. Simplicity in setup was very important to me and this tent proves that. From the one pole hub design to the color coded rain fly attachments, setting up a tent doesn't get much easier. There is just enough room to fit two sleeping bags. Plenty of ventilation and love the side zipper on both entry systems. Very light and extremely easy to pack up. My only complaint is that the included 6 MSR mini-groundhog stakes did not come with the attached pull cords. This makes pulling them out of the ground very difficult. The stakes show pull cords on the REI website? Overall a great purchase and props to REI for getting this product out before anyone else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wonderful tent but with a small flaw This tent has taken me through thick and thin and I love it dearly. The size and the weight are perfect for all of my adventures, I have never been wet, and I have never had a tear. Unfortunately it seems the little silver metal pieces that are screwed into the O where the poles attach are stripping and falling out, rendering my darling Hubba Hubba useless. Unfortunately I am cycling in East Africa and truly was dependent on the full support of Hubba when it chose to fail me. If only there were a fix I would recommend this tent to everyone including my mother and grandfather and baby cousin's sister.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for Wish I’ve been able to test it more in the last year and but here’s what I have. The tent is a good size tent and its light for the size. It can be folded in half to reduce size in the pack. Dumb proof to set up and once up and taught its bomb proof, you can lean your body weight into tent once set up and itll hold you. Biggest flaw I found is that the vestibule sets a little high and wind blows dust and sand underneath it causing a vortex and dusting you and all your gear out. Woke up to be covered in a blanket of dust and dirt … also would like to have the vestibule be able to open from either side instead of one side. Other than that great tent and customer service

What is a hubbed poleset?

Asked by: bbran
A hubbed poleset is when the poles are permanently attached to each other. In the case of this tent, the brow pole is attached to the ridge pole via a rotating joint, or the hub.

I've heard good things but have one concern...It seems that the only way to guy out the tent is to attach the lines to the two vents. It looks like the vents can't be closed when the tent is guyed out for wind. What do you do in a cold windy night?

Asked by: makmak
The main guypoints are at the pole intersection above the vent, not shown in the images. The vent has one hook and loop tab at the center and cannot be completely sealed. There are also guyout points at the top of the doors also not shown in the images.

Has anyone successfully used just the footprint / rainfly setup?  And if so what were your results, pros / cons?

Asked by: TrooperMark
Went overnight camping at Gross Reservoir over the weekend and used the tent with only the fly and floor. It was very easy to set up and gave quick shelter from rain that was moving in. Perhaps the only downside I can see is that in this configuration you have no protection against bugs.

Does this tent come with stakes? If so, how many?

Asked by: Ryan Rhodes
My Hubba Hubba NX actually came with 8 mini stakes, but they were very weak, bending in the hard ground of the Southern California mountains.  I replaced them with the beefier MSR Groundhog stakes and have not had a problem with them.

In the description it says "lets you use just the rainfly, poles and footprint (not included) " . What is not included? Is everything I need to set it up with include? Canopy and all, or is it just the open tent? Thank you

Asked by: comanche8f
The footprint is not included with the purchase of the tent. The footprint can be found here: The tent comes with the rainfly, tent body, poles and misc. extras. To reduce weight, with the addition of the footprint, the rainfly and poles can give shelter without the tent body. This will reduce the package by over two pounds if the footprint is included. The footprint is recommended to help protect the tent floor.

The picture shows two bags when packed up.  Is that the way it's supposed to be?  Does anyone have the dimensions of the packed gear (for me, space, not just weight, is a factor when bike camping).

Asked by: Mad4Plaid
There are two ways to pack/carry the Hubba Hubba. The picture showing the tent packed in two pieces is a way for the weight of the tent to be distributed between you and another camper. The overall packed size of the tent with everything in the main stuff bag is 6 X 18 inches.
