The classic Hubba Hubba design with its spacious interior now upgraded with super tough poles and extra durable outer and with a small weight saving as well.

MSR says:

Designed for backpackers who need a tent that can do it all while still being compact and lightweight, our bestselling MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-person tent feels as light and efficient to use as it does to carry. From its spacious interior to its quick setup, this tent redefines lightweight livability. And now it boasts premier durability features, including virtually indestructible Easton® Syclone poles and MSR’s long-lasting Xtreme Shield waterproof coating. Whether you’re setting out to climb the Sawatch Range or circumnavigate Mount Rainier along the Wonderland Trail, the freestanding, 3-season Hubba Hubba NX tent lets you enjoy the full backcountry experience — including time spent in the tent.

Differences between the New Hubba Hubba Shield & the Hubba Hubba NX: The tent gets a durability boost from composite Easton Syclone poles, which flex under heavy winds; Xtreme Shield waterproof coating, which outlasts standard polyurethane coatings;  & precision-stitched seams, which eliminates the need for conventional seam taping.

MSR's Hubba range are amongst our favourite tents. We like that the head height is maintained over a wide area, we like the long interior length giving you space to store your gear, and we like that its freestanding so you can pitch it on hard ground or move it around to find the best spot when choosing your campsite.

The Hubba Hubba Shield takes the existing superb design and adds greater toughness and longevity thanks to the cutting-edge Easton Syclone poles and "Xtreme Shield" coating. The tent has two doors and two equally sized porches, a configuration which offers great flexibility and ease of use for two people - you get your own space!

MSR are still producing the Hubba Hubba NX in europe with the same specs that it had in 2018, it comes with more cost-effective DAC Featherlite NFL poles and a "Durashield" polyurethane & silicone waterproof coating instead of the new "Xtreme Shield" coating. The Hubba Hubba NX comes in at a lower price so depending on what you require from your tent you have the option to go for the Hubba Hubba NX or the new Hubba Hubba Shield.

Great tent

Bought this tent and took it to the Lakes for an adventure. Easy to put up and loads of space inside. My friends were very envious and it was perfect in high winds.
