If you are a person who travels a lot and likes to camp during the travel instead of staying in a hotel, then you would probably need a good tent that you can carry along with you in your travel. There are certain factors which you must look into while buying a good tent like it must be lightweight, easily portable and must not occupy most of your luggage space.
MSR Hubba NX 1-person tent is one such tent that caters all your camping needs. This portable shelter protects you from rains and snows effortlessly since it can be set up very easily. The main reason why I recommend this shelter is its size. It’s compact and lightweight, and you can easily carry it along with you on your bike.
The tent, when set up, provides ample space for one person to stay comfortably. It has enough head and elbow room throughout, so you never feel like cooped up into any tiny shelter. The rectangular shape of the floor allows you to sleep freely without folding your legs. The tent can be arranged in different ways depending on the weather conditions and the location you camp. MSR Hubba NX solo comes with a single door entry, ideal for a single user. The portable safe house also provides additional space for keeping your extra luggage and other camping gears.
As I said, the tent is rainproof which helps in providing shelter during heavy rains or storms. It is designed in such a way that, during rains, water goes over the rainfly and does not enter the tent. The safe house is extremely durable which makes it easier for you to use it under any climatic conditions. The floor area remains dry and comfortable with the help of rainfly vents.
The shelter weighs around 1.12 kg or 2 lb. 7 oz. The dimensions of the tent are 36 X 30 X 85 inches and height is 36 inches. It comes with a heavy-duty aluminum pole. The 18-sq feet floor of the shelter is made up of 30D ripstop nylon. The rainfly of the tent is made up of 20D ripstop nylon.
Utility-wise, MSR Hubba 1p tent is a pretty decent sized shelter and is ideal for one-man stay. The lightweight, enough floor space, single door entry, and rainproof material of the tent make it the best tent for camping purpose.
Pros and Cons
