Newly redesigned, the best-selling, freestanding 3-person backpacking tent has reinvented lightweight livability for three. Weighing in at just 2 kg / 4 lb 7 oz—a full .88 kg / 1 lb 15 oz lighter than before— the MSR Mutha Hubba NX tent is the ideal tent for a minimalist trio backpacking deep into the Sierras in the heat of summer, or tackling the Appalachian Trail for an extended trip in the spring. The easy-to-assemble 3-person tent features a unified, symmetrical frame and non-tapered floor to maximize space, two easy setup options, plenty of head and elbow room throughout, and the most livable accommodations for 3-season conditions.
You're not sure whose idea it was for the three of y'all to go camping for a week last October, but the MSR Mutha Hubba NX 3-Person 3-Season Tent was there for you during a night that shall go down in history: 15-bean chili, moonshine, cigars, and a tent. This beautifully breezy portable palace offers ample room for you and your two averagely proportioned friends while leaving lots of spare room and weight so you can fill your pack with really important things, like those stinky stogies or flasks.
The ripstop nylon bathtub floor rises up along the sides to save your sweet dreams from fat raindrops that splatter mud upon impact. A powerful weather-resistant combination of DWR and Durashield polyurethane stops rivulets of rain from streaming inside your tent. The body mixes mesh panels with lightweight nylon for cross-tent ventilation, and the robust nylon ripstop rainfly spares you a soggy fate when a midnight shower turns into an all-night steady rain.
The Mutha Hubba NX takes an innovative approach to the rainfly-vestibule interaction. Instead of a center zip, you get into the vestibule (and tent) via a side zip on the fly. The zipper is tucked beneath a rain gutter so you can come and go as you please without exposing your tentmates to a deluge. Two doors and two vestibules mean only the monkey in the middle has to climb over anyone for an after-dark potty run. At both vestibules, roll up the edges of the fly, guy them out, and let an air-cleansing wind sneak inside. Vents at both ends of the tent, plus the side doors, mean you get air from every direction.
A 3-person version of the award-winning Hubba Hubba backpacking tent, the MSR Mutha Hubba features two stay-dry entrances with ample vestibules and an extended interior space through unique, freestanding pole design.

I bought the MSR Mutha Hubba tent from Backcountry a few years ago. The rainfly lining started to separtate and became very sicky which made the poles sticky as well. MSR replaced the rainfly but not the poles. The poles would stick to the new rainfly and the tent itself. I called Backcountry to ask if they would do anything. They told me to send the tent in. They replaced it. Backcountry has the best customer service out there. No other company comes close. I would buy my gear from this company even if I had to pay more. Their prices are great so that's not really an issue anyway. Five stars are not enough to rate Backcountry. I wish we had the option to go above and beyond that rating as they do for all of us who buy gear from them. Thank you Backcountry, you guys are awesome!
