MSR® Introduces the Next Generation of Ultralight Backpacking Tents
New MSR Hubba NX series offers lighter weight and greater livability in four new modelsMSR brings to market the new and improved Hubba NX tent collection—the next generation of the most livable, ultralight freestanding tents for 3-season backpacking environments.
The four new MSR Hubba NX series tents, ranging from one-person to four-person capacity, feature lighter weight fabrics and poles that reduce weight by up to 30%. Optimized pole geometries maximize interior space, allowing ample head and shoulder room throughout the tent, and the new color scheme of classic MSR red and light grey maximizes natural light within the tent, making the shelters a pleasant space to stay regardless of weather conditions.
In classic MSR style, each new Hubba NX series tent features meticulous attention to detail, including a unified pole system and color-coded stakeout loops and clip-webbing for fast and easy setup. Large doors and vestibules provide easy access and lots of storage options, and an optional Hubba Gear Shed™ adds extra livability and storage. All Hubba NX series tents also feature mesh canopy windows and kickstand rainfly vents. The included side-loading compression stuff sacks make the tents as easy to pack as they are to set up.
MSR’s new 2014 Hubba NX collection includes the following new models:
- Hubba™ NX: At 1.12 kg (2 lb. 7 oz.), MSR’s best-selling, ultra-light freestanding solo tent is now .17 kg (6 oz.), or 13%, lighter than before. One full vestibule, large door, and increased floor area allow for greater livability with reduced weight. Recommended Retail Price is £300.00.
