Top 5 Best Backpacking Tents 2019 – 2020 [BUYER’S GUIDE]

1, MSR Hubba Hubba NX

The MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person Lightweight Backpacking Tent is the quintessential 3-season backpacking tent. The freestanding design features pole geometry and a non-tapered floor that maximizes space with 29 square feet of floor area, and a peak interior height of 39 inches. Two generous vestibules provide an additional 8.75-square-feet on each side of the 2-door tent (total 17.5-square-feet) for gear storage. The adjustable, cross-ventilating rainfly features a kickstand vent, and rollup vestibule for stargazing. Setup is easy thanks to the unified hub-and-pole system, and color-coded clips. For fast and light travel, the body of the tent can be left behind, and a minimalist shelter constructed using a footprint (sold separately), poles, and rainfly. Includes tent, poles, rainfly, stakes, guy lines, and compression stuff sack (tent packs down to 18×6 inches). Available in two configurations: with the DuraShield Coating and DAC Featherlite NFL poles where complete setup weighs 3.5 pounds, minimum setup weighs 3 pounds, or with the Xtreme Shield Waterproof Coating (lasts up to 3 times longer than standard coatings) with premium Easton Syclone Poles (resists breaking in fierce winds) where complete setup weighs 3.5 pounds, minimum setup weighs 3 pounds. Manufacturer’s 3-year limited warranty.
