New MSR® Hubba Hubba™ NX Tent Wins OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD


SEATTLE, WA -- MSR (Mountain Safety Research®) today announced it has won an OutDoor Industry Award 2013 for the new MSR® Hubba Hubba NX tent in the “camping” category. An international jury of design experts selected the Hubba Hubba NX—the flagship tent from MSR’s new Hubba NX Collection—for its innovative design, quality, workmanship and functionality.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized by the OutDoor Industry Award Jury for the new Hubba Hubba NX tent,” said Dale Karacostas, director of MSR Shelter. “The Hubba Hubba tent has been a bestseller since it was first introduced in 2004 and we’ve improved on that design with the new Hubba Hubba NX. This next generation Hubba Hubba is significantly lighter, packs smaller and offers great livability. It’s guaranteed to become a new favorite among backpackers and trekkers worldwide.”

 Weighing just 3 lbs. 7 oz. (1.54 kg), the freestanding, two-person Hubba Hubba NX tent is now over 15% lighter than the previous version and takes advantage of a unified pole system for easy setup and increased head and shoulder room for two people to sit comfortably. A new color scheme of classic MSR red at the bottom and light grey in the body and rainfly maximizes natural light within the tent, making the shelter a pleasant space to stay regardless of weather conditions. Additional tent features include convenient, color-coded stakeout loops and clip-webbing for easing setup, two doors and two large, adjustable vestibules for easy access and plenty of gear storage. Mesh canopy windows allow for stargazing and excellent ventilation, and the included side-loading compression stuff sack allows the tent to pack up impressively small.

MSR’s award-winning Hubba Hubba NX tent recently debuted at the OutDoor Trade Fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany and will be shown at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah, later this month. The new tent will be available for purchase in stores by January 2014.
