Streamline your group's backpacking experience with the ultralight and freestanding MSR Papa Hubba NX tent. Spacious, three-season shelter and comfort are yours for up to four backpackers.


When you have the MSR Papa Hubba NX 4-Person 3-Season Tent at your disposal, you're limited only by your imagination. And, well, probably time and money, too. You can take the family for a weekend in the woods, knowing the car stands ready should a speedy exit become vital to survival. You can take your two Huskies for a hike above the treeline and a night out when the August heat becomes oppressive. You and three photo-fiend friends can hit the dusty trails in the Winds for some late-season shooting. For a 4-person tent, this big daddy is light in your pack yet tough on the ground. This camping castle weighs just under 6 pounds on your back and offers cross-tent ventilation and protection from the weather. The ripstop nylon bathtub floor uses DWR and a 3000mm Durashield polyurethane coating to prevent precipitation from creeping in. The body of the tent uses a blend of mesh and nylon ripstop to shield your skin from nosy neighbors while letting fresh air flow. The nylon ripstop rainfly offers protection from above for when fat thunderheads burst open. Unlike other mobile homes, you access either vestibule via a side zipper, tucked neatly away underneath a gutter, on the rainfly. You are able to enter the tent without exposing your camping crew to a deluge. The off-center access also means you are able to exit and enter then tent, even when you've rolled up the edges of the vestibule and guyed them out so a refreshing breeze can cross the tent. In addition to the doors, mesh at either end of the tent provides ventilation in every direction. Even if you don't tang the air, you know one of those dogs is bound to let a silent-but-violent at some point.


The largest of the Hubba series, the new MSR Pappa Hubba(TM) NX, is a 4-person backpacking tent light enough to take into the backcountry, yet with maximum livability for four. The tent weighs just 2.67 kg / 5 lb 15 oz-less than .7 kg / 1 lb 9 oz per person-and packs up smaller than most 2-person tents. The 3-season, freestanding Papa Hubba tent offers plenty of room and livable comfort for all. Inside and out, the tent is engineered for performance, from the large side windows you can sit next to comfortably, to the optimized, symmetrical frame geometry that protects from side winds.

The MSR Papa Hubba NX 4-person backpacking tent offers maximum livability for four in a tent that's light enough for the backcountry and packs smaller than many two-person tents. The 3-season, freestanding Papa Hubba tent offers plenty of room and livable comfort with large side windows and optimized, symmetrical frame geometry that protects you and your tent mates from side winds. The hub-and-pole system with color-coded clips speeds pitch times while two large side-entry vestibules stow everybody's gear. Two large StayDry doors with built-in rain gutters eliminate a common source of damp tent interiors.
