Many solo tents are little more than a bivy with poles, but the freestanding MSR Hubba 1-person tent gives you a full vestibule for storing your pack and boots as well as 40 inches of interior height so you can sit out a storm comfortably. The lightweight materials and a highly packable design make setting up and tearing down camp a cinch.

The Hubba NX 1-Person Camping Tent by MSR has been reinvented as the most livable, ultralight solo backpacking tent available. Now a full 6 oz lighter and expertly engineered for 3-season camping, this lightweight, compact tent won’t slow you down, whether you’re striking out early to earn solo views along a popular route, or finding your stride on a 10-day trek into the Alaskan wilderness. The tent’s optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor maximize space, because you didn’t head out into the backcountry to feel constrained. While other precision-engineered features, from the StayDry door to the adaptable, cross-ventilating rainfly, make the tent so livable, you won’t want to come home. A full vestibule, large door and increased floor area offer greater livability with reduced weight. Unique pole configuration maximizes interior space while mesh canopies and adjustable, vented rainfly offer maximum airflow and unrestricted views. A unified-hub-and pole system with color-coded stake out loops and clip webbing makes for a fast and easy setup and the side entry compression stuff sack makes the tent as easy to pack as it is to set up. When you finally decide you need a home away from home, check out the Hubba NX 1-Person Camping Tent by MSR.

Total pack weight is 3 lb 4 oz Pretty good weight.
