Single-person tents are ideal for trekkers who don’t want to carry a lot of weight when they’re backpacking alone but don’t want the minimal protection offered by a tarp or a bivysack. The MSR Hubba NX is one our favorite solo shelters, thanks to its relatively spacious 18-square-foot floor and 36-inch peak height. “It’s roomy enough for me to sit up, move around, and change without feeling like I’m in a shoebox,” says one tester who used the Hubba NX on a weeklong trip in Vermont’s Green Mountains. Score this 2.5-pound tent at Backcountry.com for 25 percent off its list price, dropping it down to $284.89.
