MSR Tents: Papa Hubba NX Overview
5 Comments


Hi, I’m Dale Karacostas of Mountain Safety
Research, here today to show you our new Papa Hubba™ NX 4-person tent. It joins our bestselling
line of Hubba™ 3-season tents. Backpackers who are traveling with a large
group or want a lot of space will love the Papa Hubba’s light weight: 2.67 kg (5 lb
15 oz)—less than .7 kg (1lb 8 oz) per person. If your group consists of minimalists, you
can go even lighter by setting it up in Fast & Light mode. But where the Papa Hubba NX truly excels is
in livability. And here’s why: The symmetrical pole structure maximizes head
and shoulder room throughout tent, so you have more livable space inside. Storing gear—not a problem when you have
two large vestibules. For ventilation, we used lots of mesh and
put in kickstand rainfly vents to help reduce condensation while increasing the airflow. The freestanding tent is easy to set up with
its unified hub system with DAC Featherlite poles. One of our goals with this tent was to make
it as easy as possible to set up. That’s why we used color-coded webbing on the rainfly
and the stake loops, making it really easy to orient the rainfly to the tent. We chose 20-denier and 30-denier high tenacity
ripstop nylon along with our waterproof Durashield coatings to make sure you stay dry and comfortable
on the inside. And we designed the two large StayDry™ entrances
with built-in rain gutters to channel water away, so you don’t get dripped on getting
into or out of the tent. When it’s time to break camp, you just load
the tent into the wide-mouth stuff sack and use compression straps to pack it down ultra
compact. And there you have it – the new Papa Hubba™
NX from MSR. Designed for you to enjoy your time inside the tent almost as much as your
time outside of it.

  1. I wish you could get this in a 4 +2 version. Then I could fit my 2 medium sized kids and 2 small kids in it with myself and wife

  2. Some how I few the first version of mutha hubba is the best all round. Could reduce the little more weight by replacing poles and fabric with new material instead of changing the whole structure, which made it infaror.
