However you hike the backcountry, the 4lbs, 9oz weight keeps your pack light. The two doors allow a quick escape in the middle of the night and the vestibule protects gear in foul weather.

A combination of fabric and mesh give the privacy needed in more crowed sites while still allowing cool breezes to flow through.

You're not sure who thought it was a good idea for the three of you to go backpacking with nothing but 15-bean chili packed for your dinner, but at least you slept in the MSR Mutha Hubba NX 3-Person 3-Season Tent, which helped keep things as pleasant as possible. This beautifully breezy portable palace offers ample room for you and two averagely proportioned friends, features a newly redesigned floor plan that gives you and your mates plenty of room to stretch out, catch some shuteye, and get to work on digesting that chili. The bathtub-style ripstop nylon floor of the Mutha Hubba rises up along the sides of the walls to save your sweet dreams from fat raindrops and splattering mud. A weather-resistant Durashield polyurethane coating stops rivulets of rain from streaming into the tent, and the inner canopy combines mesh panels with lightweight nylon for cross-tent ventilation. The Mutha Hubba NX takes an innovative approach to the rainfly-vestibule interaction, too. Instead of a center zip, you get into the vestibule (and tent) via a side zip on the fly. The zipper is tucked beneath a rain gutter so you can come and go as you please without exposing your tentmates to a deluge, and two vestibule-covered doors mean only the middleman will have to climb over someone for an after-dark bathroom break. Both vestibules allow you to roll up the edges of the fly and guy them out to let an fresh wind sneak inside, and vents at both ends of the tent, plus the side doors, mean you can get air from every direction so you don't have to sleep in a haze of chili farts.


The MSR Mutha Hubba Tent has reinvented lightweight livability for three. Featuring a new floorplan that offers each occupant easy access to doors and gear, the Mutha Hubba NX tent is the ideal tent for a minimalist trio backpacking deep into the Sierras in the heat of summer, or tackling the Appalachian Trail for an extended trip in the spring. The easy-to-assemble 3-person tent features a new frame geometry that improves ventilation and interior headroom, two easy setup options, and the most livable accommodations for 3-season conditions.
