MSR’s first venture into the world of Bikepacking. The Hubba Hubba Bikepack tent has a lot of familiar characteristics, but with shorter poles and a sturdy bag to attach directly onto the bike.

MSR says: 

Designed for the adventurous cyclist whether they ride dirt or pavement, the new Hubba Hubba Bikepack 1-person tent has been meticulously designed for life on two wheels. Thoughtful features that all cyclists will appreciate married with spacious performance make this tent best-in-class.

The true rectangular floor (no foot taper) is large enough for all your gear and 38 inches (0.97 m) of headroom lets you sit up comfortably. The tent body is a blend of mesh and solid fabric that provides airflow, privacy and weather protection. The no-curve tent door feature zippers that are easy to use with one hand. It also zips closed to a single point so you always know where to open the door, even in the dark. Tech-friendly pockets feature cable ports at the corners for charging cords, and large overhead gear loft pockets are perfect for gloves, sunglasses and other quick-access items. An interior clothesline and optional but included exterior clothesline provide ample space to hang damp gear.

The rectangular tent design means you can set up the Hubba in a flash, particularly useful in those unexpected rainstorms. Strong, lightweight DAC poles are sized to fit perfectly on your handlebars when packed. These shorter poles are also good for kayak campers who want to fit a tent more easily in their boat storage. A waterproof coating and taped seams keep the Hubba stable and dry so you can ride out weather in comfort. The stealth-green rainfly features an extra-large vestibule for storing any cycling gear you don’t want inside. The easy in-and-out vestibule door has a StayDry™ rain gutter to keep dripping water off you and your gear, and a kickstand vent maximizes airflow.

The meticulously designed waterproof handlebar storage bag fits on any bike, whether it has flat or drop bars. Included optional spacers hold the bag away from the bars so it doesn’t eat up valuable real estate for other items. The bag also has reflective hits for increased visibility on the road, and loops to tie on additional gear. Its small, packed size also means you can easily fit it in panniers, a frame bag or a backpack.

With excellent on-bike stability and feature-rich camp comfort, the Hubba Hubba Bikepack tent will quickly become your new favorite home-away-from home.

Our Verdict

The MSR Hubba Hubba Bikepack tent is a very versatile addition to MRSs tent range, adapting existing technology and design to produce a lightweight, highly portable tent. Specifically designed for bike-packing with 29cm long DAC poles and a versatile waterproof bag, that attaches to the handlebars with 2 rubber stoppers. The stoppers keep the bag away from cables and is sturdy, thanks to the retaining strap that goes, around the head tube. The bag is also expandable with a roll down closure and great for stashing a rain jacket for when you need it quickly on the move. Internally the tent has a good amount of storage with drying lines for hanging items to dry.
