New MSR Hubba Tour Tents Give Touring Adventurers Comfort and Protection

Publish date:

The latest tent line from MSR offers long-term touring adventurers comfort and ease of setup in any conditions

SEATTLE, WA (July 19, 2017) — Since the debut of its first shelter in 1973, MSR® has been engineering for superior livability and ultimate reliability. For 2018, MSR brings the Hubba™ Tour Series to the American market, offering the ultimate solution for the growing adventure touring community. Already a fixture in Europe, the tent line takes the greatest features of the best-selling Hubba™ NX tents and adds features designed specifically for touring users.

Available in one, two, and three-person models, the Hubba™ Tour Series offers fully featured, three-season protection and superior livability at 3 lbs 15 oz, 5 lbs 13 oz and 5 lbs 12 oz, respectively. The Hubba Tours include spacious interiors, and a unified, exoskeleton frame for a swift, easy and dry setup in foul weather. A massive hooped vestibule provides extra protection for changing wet clothes, lounging after a long day and storing the gear required for week- to year-long adventure tours.

“Self-supported adventure touring continues to grow,” said Terry Breaux, category manager for shelters at MSR. “For this model we streamlined the buying process – and made an all-in-one tent that will keep your vestibule dry, and in turn, your gear, even when setting up in the rain.”

All Hubba Tour tents now feature the latest Xtreme Shield™ waterproofing from MSR on both the 20D rainfly and 30D floor. This ultra-durable coating, exclusive to MSR tents, will last three times longer than standard coatings. A large vestibule door provides easy access to the spacious interior while smart internal gear storage solutions ensure livable comfort on longer touring trips.

The Hubba Tour Series will debut at Outdoor Retailer and Friedrichshafen and will be available in selected retailers starting January 2018.

Hubba™ Tour

To those who embark on self-supported adventure tours, Hubba Tour tents deliver spacious, quick-setup and full-protection shelters to house their all gear and let them live comfortably for weeks or months on end amid foul weather and grueling, self-propelled days. Hubba Tour tents are the only tents on the market with specific features designed for touring adventurers. Thanks to their unique exoskeleton, Hubba Tours will ensure your tent body stays dry as you set up in rainy weather. These tents are built for all forms of bikepackers and self-supported cycle tourers (ultralight, backroads, fat bike, expedition), canoeing tourers and cross-country tourers—who hit the roads, trails or waterways for weeks to years at time with the purpose of pure adventure, sightseeing, soul-searching or accomplishing the ultimate mission. All Hubba Tour tents include MSR’s new Xtreme Shield waterproof coating. Comes in a 1-person, 2-person and 3-person size. MSRP $599.95-$749.94
