Bring this ultralight, freestanding tent on your solo forays into the wild and enjoy livable space in a dependable, easy and comfortable 3-season shelter for 1.
The MSR Hubba NX 1-Person 3-Season Tent makes it easy to escape the daily grind without having to coordinate schedules or sacrifice valuable time on the trail to the whims of others. A The weight, a mere 2lb 7oz when you've got it all, keeps this tent super-light in your pack. Multiple mesh windows and an innovative fly design give this tent better cross-ventilation than your permanent residence. Unique use of materials helps minimize the weight since you're not sharing the load with a backpacking pal. The bathtub floor uses strong but light 30D ripstop nylon to stand guard against intrusive rocks or tricky twigs. The combination of DWR and 3000mm Durashield polyurethane coating resists entreaties by incoming water so you and your sleeping bag stay dry from the bottom up. A clever blend of mesh and ripstop nylon lets fresh air flow through the body of the tent while giving you the privacy for a full-body tick check. The nylon ripstop rainfly is bathed in a 1200mm Durashield polyurethane and silicone coating to save you from a night of steady showers. New to the Hubba NX this year is a vestibule with a side-zip opening. By moving the zipper from the center of the vestibule to the side, you now have a protected entrance to your on-the-go home. A rain gutter channels water away from the zipper and the entrance to prevent drips from turning into sleeping-pad-soaking puddles. You can roll up the bottom edge of the vestibule, guy it out, and enjoy an evening breeze free of bugs or rain--all while still being able to get in and out of the tent without requiring acrobatic maneuvering. Be it a lone foray into the high country for a weekend free of horns and sirens or a group hike with your trail maintenance club, enjoy sweet dreams in this lightweight, single-sleeper tent.
