MSR Hubba NX Solo

The smallest tent in the completely redesigned Hubba NX Series from MSR, the NX Solo is a lightweight double skin tent for three season use. Featuring a unique pole system the NX Solo is notable for the internal volume with enough room to sit up straight and a vestibule big enough to cook in. The new design is pretty extensive and is more of a new tent than an upgrade for the best selling original Hubba.

 

What the manufacturers say:

Now a full .17 kg (6 oz) lighter, the best-selling, freestanding MSR Hubba NX tent has been reinvented as the most livable, ultralight solo backpacking tent available. Expertly engineered for 3-season camping, the lightweight, compact tent won’t slow you down, whether you’re striking out early to earn solo views along a popular route, or finding your stride on a 10-day trek into the Alaskan wilderness. The tent’s optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor maximize space—because you didn’t head out into the backcountry to feel constrained—while other precision-engineered features, from the StayDry™ door to the adaptable, cross-ventilating rainfly, make the tent so livable, you won’t want to come home.

Price:£330

Description

MSR's best selling solo tent, the Hubba, has undergone a metamorphosis to emerge as the Hubba NX Solo. Designed as a 3 season tent with 3 optional setups from fast and light to full pitch it has a unique profile featuring a steep wall one one side with a spacious porch on the other. Fast to pitch and simple to strike it weighs in at 1.3kg and offers large internal volume. With street prices around £290 it's below the going rate for a tent of this quality and looks set to be a worthy successor to the much loved original Hubba.
