MSR Papa Hubba NX Tent 4-Person 3-Season


Product Details

When you have the MSR Papa Hubba NX 4-Person 3-Season Tent at your disposal, you're limited only by your imagination. And, well, probably time and money, too. You can take the family for a weekend in the woods, knowing the car stands ready should a speedy exit become vital to survival. You can take your two Huskies for a hike above the treeline and a night out when the August heat becomes oppressive. You and three photo-fiend friends can hit the dusty trails in the Winds for some late-season shooting. For a 4-person tent, this big daddy is light in your pack yet tough on the ground. This camping castle weighs just under 6 pounds on your back and offers cross-tent ventilation and protection from the weather. The ripstop nylon bathtub floor uses DWR and a 3000mm Durashield polyurethane coating to prevent precipitation from creeping in. The body of the tent uses a blend of mesh and nylon ripstop to shield your skin from nosy neighbors while letting fresh air flow. The nylon ripstop rainfly offers protection from above for when fat thunderheads burst open. Unlike other mobile homes, you access either vestibule via a side zipper, tucked neatly away underneath a gutter, on the rainfly. You are able to enter the tent without exposing your camping crew to a deluge. The off-center access also means you are able to exit and enter then tent, even when you've rolled up the edges of the vestibule and guyed them out so a refreshing breeze can cross the tent. In addition to the doors, mesh at either end of the tent provides ventilation in every direction. Even if you don't tang the air, you know one of those dogs is bound to let a silent-but-violent at some point.

Large Tents Checklist

Cabin vs. Large Dome Tent. What to choose? Cabin tents tend to be larger and usually have one or more "rooms." However, large dome tents are not as heavy or bulky, and usually are easier to setup. If you do NOT need the extra rooms, I'd suggest considering a large dome tent.
Waterproof? Any tent worth's it's name better be waterproof on the bottom AND have a waterproof rain-fly. Why? Sleep in it once during the rain and you won't need to ask.
Many Cabin Tents Are NOT Freestanding. Unlike large dome tents, many cabin tents require many stakes and lots of rope to erect. Keep this in mind when shoppng around for one. Most tents shown on this site, however, are freestanding.
How Tall? If you are going to get a big tent, it makes little sense to get one that is "squat." Thus, for big tents, it's always better to get a tent that is comfortable...and comfortable means one that is tall enough to stand fully erect in.
