MSR Updates its Best-Selling Tent Model, the Hubba Hubba for Spring 2022 and Introduces the LowDown Remote Stove Adapter

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

The Freelite tent series, MSR’s lightest semi-freestanding tent, will also receive significant updates in 2022.

SEATTLE, Wash. (August 10, 2021) — Seattle-based Mountain Safety Research® (MSR®), the high-performance outdoor equipment that’s part of the parent company Cascade Designs, is excited to announce updates to its award-winning Hubba series for spring 2022. The best-selling and award winning Hubba Hubba is known for its fast and easy set up thanks to its freestanding design and symmetrical poles, and now features a significant weight reduction and updated features. Additionally, all three size versions (previously Hubba NX, Hubba Hubba NX and Mutha Hubba NX) will be unified under the recognizable name – Hubba Hubba. 

The updated designs include up to a 14 oz reduction in weight compared to previous models, keeping the Hubba Hubba series a premiere lightweight option. The three-season tent series will now also feature easy-open, no-curve door zippers, tech-friendly cable ports on all storage pockets, ultra-tough Easton Syclone poles and durable floor materials. The Hubba Hubba’s durable mesh and fabric materials balance comfort, airflow, protection and privacy through the widest range of conditions. The waterproof Durashield-coated fly and floors and taped seams provide reliable, durable weather protection and the reinforced patches and stitching at guy points add extra stability in windy conditions. Finally, the true rectangular floor and extra headroom make the Hubba Hubba incredibly spacious and easy to set up, eliminating sleeping pad overlap, thanks to the symmetrical pole design. 

To learn more about all of the Hubba Hubba tent updates, check out this video featuring MSR’s tent designer, Terry Breaux.

“For experienced outdoors enthusiasts with limited free time but many outdoor pursuits, the new Hubba Hubba and FreeLite tents are updated to offer more livability, now in lighter weight designs,” said Terry Breaux, MSR’s Tent Category Manager. “These updates will allow you to go farther and do more without sacrificing comfort or space.”

Brand new for this season and far more than just an accessory, the LowDown Remote Stove Adapter amplifies the performance and versatility of all current MSR top mounted canister stoves and stove systems. Placing the stove on a low, stable base, away from the canister, allows these ultralight stoves to serve you reliably on group trips, in basecamp settings and deep in the backcountry. Cooking with larger pots and on uneven surfaces are now both easier, making this seemingly small add-on a big game-changer for every kind of camping kit. 

“The big advantage of the LowDown adapter is that you are able to control the stove from about a foot away from your hot burner, while boiling water or simmering a meal, instead of directly underneath it,” said Scott Youmans, Product Line Manager at MSR for Stoves, Cookware, and Winter. “This makes for a much more comfortable flame adjustment experience and in our experience, users fine tune their flame control much more when it’s easier to do. The end result is an easier, more comfortable cooking experience.”

Also receiving updates for spring 2022 is the Freelite tent series, MSR’s lightest semi-freestanding tent capable of handling various multi-day outdoor trips. The reimagined FreeLite series will offer targeted performance and value to the ounce-counting weekend warrior. The updates deliver on the MSR promise of greater livability for less weight, while also maintaining the stalwart reliability that MSR is known for. The updated models are up to 9 oz lighter than previous models, and feature easy-open, no-curve door zippers, cable ports on all storage pockets, and the ultimate in durability and performance, thanks to DAC’s lightest weight aluminum poles and Durashield Coating, providing the peace of mind that your tent will last for many seasons to come. 

The Freelite is available in one, two and three-person size options. To learn more about all of the Freelite series updates, check out this video.

The updated Hubba Hubba tent series (MSRP: $379.95-$549.95 USD), the LowDown Remote Stove Adapter (MSRP: $49.95 USD) and the updated Freelite series (MSRP: $349.95-$449.95 USD) will launch to the public starting January 1, 2022. For more information about MSR, please visit: msrgear.com.

Fashioned from an ammo can, Ignik’s Fire Can caught a lot of buzz at the show. This self contained “fire pit” features pop out legs to keep it above the ground and perforated sides to release more heat. It’s a bit heavy for carrying, so consider this for vehicle bivouacs.

While it currently uses propane, a diesel variant is under development for military use.

Nanga is a Japanese brand and NML is their research arm. Their new Level 8 sleeping bag is part of the High-End Model Series.

They’ve moved the zipper closer to the center of the bag to get it higher up off the ground and incorporated dual draft tubes. The individual baffles are each filled with different amounts of Ultra Dry Down, depending on where they are located in the bag, with vertical baffles along the backside.

These are serious bags for serious conditions. Look for two models with one going all the way down to -23 deg C.

While the colors are all over the place, the Monarch Sleeping Bag is an interesting concept in modularity.

Additionally, there’s a ventable, overstuffed foot box and each wing can be stuffed into itself for use as a pillow. It uses a poly fill at the following levels: body 150 g, foot box and hood 150 g and the two wings are 220 g fill.
