MSR Hubba Hubba Camping Tent Review: Best Lightweight Backpacking Tent
The MSR Hubba Hubba tent is by far the best backpacking tent that I have ever used.
I spend the majority of time in the backcountry in the Southeastern United States, where temperatures are usually warm, the humidity is high, and bugs are prevalent.
This backpacking tent easily meets the requirements of this environment, as this tent offers plenty of ventilation, especially when the rain fly is installed.
The majority of tents I have used in the past do not breathe well, especially when using the rain fly. If the tent does not ventilate, dew typically accumulates on the inside face of the tent wall, which eventually seeps into your back and sleeping bag.
This is not a problem with the ‘Hubba Hubba’ tent, as it breathes well.

The tent also provides two doors and two vestibules, providing plenty of cover for your gear and equipment in the rain.
The MSR Hubba Hubba backpacking tent is also incredibly lightweight, weighing only 4 pounds, 3 ounces. The tent design only requires a minimal number of tent poles, which are ultra light.
The set up of my MSR Hubba Hubba tent is simple and straightforward, which is a nice change after my old tent, which required 4 runs of poles and two people to put it together. The minimum number of poles and stakes also ensures a quick set-up, which will come in handy as rain or darkness approaches.
If nice weather is expected, the tent itself can be left at home, and the tent footprint, rainfly, and poles can be used for cover.
I have done this during the fall, when temperatures are cool, the weather is more predictable, and bugs are long gone. I love my MSR Hubba Hubba tent
and would recommend it to anyone looking for the best backpacking tent money can buy.
