MSR's Hubba Tour tents use durable fabrics and feature an extended porch and 'flysheet first' setup, with an enlarged inner tent the 1 person version is an ideal option for bikepacking or cycle touring.

MSR says: Hubba™ Tour 1 Solo Cycle Touring Tent

The Hubba Tour 1 cycle touring tent was specifically designed to meet the needs of riders headed out onto the backroads of bicycle touring adventures.

The extended vestibule creates a spacious shelter for added storage and greater comfort on week- to year-long tours. The tent sets up quickly thanks to its exoskeleton fame, and because the tent body is attached to the rainfly, the interior stays dry during setup in foul weather. The floor’s added length and width offers room to move around in several layers of gear, and the mesh door on the vestibule provides a bug-free area to prepare for the day’s ride.

MSR's Hubba Tour 1 Tent has an extended porch to allow for additional storage compared to a standard tent, internally its bigger as well, being 4 inches wider than the standard Hubba NX tent and slightly longer. The other key feature is the exoskeleton design which means the flysheet can be pitched on its own and the inner removed, or setup once the flysheet is pitched - this enables you to keep the inner dry when pitching and striking camp in poor weather.

The use of 20 and 30 denier fabrics makes the Hubba Tours a bit more durable than the lightest options. We particularly like the fixed groundsheet at the end of the extended porch - this is ideal for keeping your gear off the ground or keeping 'mans best friend' dry.

If you would like a footprint for this tent you will need the MSR Universal 1 Large Footprint (sold separately).

Superb Summer Touring Tent

It's great to see a tent manufacturer making a tent specifically for cycle touring. Cycle touring differs from backpacking in that you tend to need more space in a tent (panniers are bulkier than a rucksack and you may need to get a bicycle under cover to fix a mechanical fault in foul weather). The vestibule on the Hubba is huge. Compared to my Akto, it's like being in a cathedral. Tons of space for luggage and a handy groundsheeted area to sit on or store stuff you need to stay dry. The tent pitches easily enough, although there is a knack to getting it taut. The inner has plenty of headroom and the vents work well. The vestibule really is the selling point on this tent. I am a reasonably lightweight backpacker but, like most cycle tourers, I take more kit when touring. The bike is carrying the weight and a few extra kilos make very little difference to the cycling effort required. I have the traditional four pannier set-up and this means that you have a lot more luggage to store and organise than a single rucksack. The vestibule is large enough to change out of wet cycling kit easily and to get a bike inside to fix a fault, although it is easier without the inner attached. I took the MSR Hubba Tour One with me to France in June 2018 for a week. The weather was absolutely awful for a few days, with torrential rain (Morlaix was severely flooded). The Hubba stood up surprisingly well. I did get moisture in the inner but it was manageable and you will get that with ANY tent in those conditions. I wouldn't take the Hubba Tour up a Scottish mountain in winter but then it is not designed for those conditions. Overall, this is a superb tent for three season cycle touring in temperate zones and is highly recommended.

Everything I ever hoped for!

Got it today and erected it in the living room (to my beloved girlfriends dreadful shouting;-).

So what you read is based on my short testing. Inside!

But the fabric feels solid and longer lasting than UL tents regularly do, and should you call this an UL tent to begin with?!

It's a very straightforward process erecting it, took less than 10 minutes the first time, so I guess 3-5 on a good day with mild wind when you're used to it.

The two major advantages over similar tents (is there any except the MSR Hubba Gear Shed, the Big Agnes Copper Spur Hotell and maybe the Big Agnes Super Scout UL 2?) is that you erect it outer first and the inner follows, this way you have a good chance of not getting the inner wet (yes, I live in Sweden).

Second, the "garage"/vestibule has a mesh that let's you have excellent ventilation, enjoy the scenery but keep the mosquitoes out! *YES!!!*

The next big thing for us who ride motorcycles "Adventure style", we can keep all our filthy, wet gear outside and away from our sleeping compartment *Hooray!!!*

We can even fix a flat/change a tire inside, away from all pesky bloodsuckers, cook food and chill out very comfortable (especially when carrying a Helinox Zero).

Half of the "garage area" has a floor to put your gear on which is very nice since it doesn't have to lay on the wet/dirty ground.

If something goes haywire with a friends tent, you can easily fit a EXPED LW in the garage, or even 2 guys can sleep there in an emergency.

Or 3-4 guys can come over and have a beer at my place if it's foul weather...

The stuff sack is very generous. I parted the poles from the tent (41 cm) and since I'm a "sloppy packer", I just folded I to the right width without any concerns other than to keep the bag width (Exped small with side compression straps, 13L) rolled it and showed it easily in the sack. It came out at 33x13 cm in 1 minute blank. My guess is that if you do it properly, with some training, you probably can reach 30x10-ish.

Ok, today I have a "Tarp tent" solution from MSR in the summer (Thru Hiker 3/100 Wing), but the summer is short in Sweden, and with poles it weighs ca 1400 gr and I have to keep my gear in my sleeping area which I don't like, and don't even think about fixing a flat on that floor...

So what are my options? I could have a small "true" UL tent, but then I have to have a Tarp for socialising/not going crazy if I do anything more than just sleeps there, but I will lose the hanging out area if I'm in an mosquito infested area and only gain maybe 2-300 gr. Or have a pretty big tent and a Tarp, and gain nothing weight wise.

You might think weight and packsize doesn't matter on a motorcycle, but if so you're very, very wrong. The way we ride, often have to pass closed gates, technical trails etc. so we really try hard to keep volume and weight down, otherwise it ruins the ride (during the summer all my packing, including tools fits in 39L+20L).

Maybe my view of the Hubba Tour changes after this season, but right now I don't see why.

Bottom line: During the mosquito months I'll even take it when hiking, I'd rather skip out on something else.
