Redverz Atacama Expedition Tent
Holy cow! I don't know why I didn't buy this tent sooner. This tent is awesome. Easily room for three adult-sized folks in the sleeping area and lots of gear storage in the 'porch'. It is so much nicer being able to stand up inside my tent to put on clothing/gear without having to bend over or lay down to do so. The tent is water proof and allows great air flow throughout the sleeping space. Set up and tear down takes about 10-15 minutes....but that was before coffee. I purchased both ground groundsheets (one for the sleeping area and one for the 'porch') and they both work effectively. I use this tent for motorcycle camping and although on the heavier side of tents available, it is worth the extra few pounds to not have to crawl around on my hands and knees. Definitely recommend this tent and would purchase it again.

Very Good Tent
The Redverz tent is a good one, we have a smaller back packing tent we used for several years but we were tired of crawling in and out and trying to get dressed in it.
If you have room to haul this one you you will like it.
We dont park our bikes in it but use the garage to sit in and with the garage foot print you keep things out of the dirt.

Love This Tent
This is a quality made tent, with great features for a longer camping trip.
I have a much smaller tent I use for quick trips, but when I am on a longer bike camping trip this is my definite go-to tent.
It is well made, intelligently designed, and while big, it isn't so big as to be a problem strapping it to the back of a bike along with the rest of your luggage.

Great tent for the money
This was obviously designed with a lot of thought going into utility, easy of use, and quality construction. Has held up well in adverse conditions and provides just the right amount of space for comfortable extended camping trips. Easy to set up, staking the guy lines and getting tension right takes the longest amount of time. 20 minutes to set up first time without using the instructions, average 10-15 now.

This tent performed exactly the way I hoped it would.
Rode to Sturgis 2015, had bike parked in garage section, didn't worry when hail came through with late night storm. Had plenty of room inside and for gear although tent packs down fairly small.

Look at all the other camp tents, then buy this one
In preparation for a trip to Santa Fe, NM and Durango, CO last week, I spent a lot of time shopping for a tent that was large enough for me, my wife and our gear, because my current two-person tent just wasn't going to be large enough.
I looked at a lot of tents. Mostly 3 to 4-person tents. I wanted a large vestibule to store our gear and if necessary large enough for us to sit in, if it rained. The tent needed to pack down small enough to fit on my rear rack and I didn't want it to be too heavy. I searched all the best camping suppliers like REI, Back Country, Campmor, LL Bean and others. They all had draw-backs for my purposes. They either had a low roof height, little or no vestibule or if they had a large vestibule, it came at the price of a large pack size and/or they were heavy. I've known about the Redverz tent for several years, but never really gave it serious consideration...until now. I started watching You Tube videos about the tent and Anthony's review here. Once I realized that it had a very respectable pack size (about 24-26 inches long by about 10 in diameter and a weight of about 16 pounds#, I began to give it more serious consideration, because for the size, it offered more than any other tent that I had looked at...more room, more height, more features, easy set up and take-down. And no other tent offered a garage for our bike ;-).
Here are some things that I like: Easy set up...three poles, easy packing...the tent is really not fussy about how you fold it up...just roll the sides over about three times from each side, roll it up and put it in the stuff sack...easy. The living quarters are plenty large enough for at least 3 people, four if no one is too large. My wife and I used the "garage" for our gear and a porch while we waited out the rain. I'm six foot and had plenty of headroom. Another nice feature is that the tie-down ropes have storage pockets built into the tent. Nit-pick here is that the pockets on the ends are smaller than the side pockets, making it a bit difficult to store the rope #weird# I recommend spending the extra money on the ground covers for both the garage and tent. This tent isn't cheap, but for me, it offered the most tent, with the least pack size and weight for the money. If you want a high quality tent for any adventure that is easy to set up and take down, with second-to-none construction and features, this one should definitely be on the top of your list.

Cant ask for something better
Before riding a 5000k miles trip around Utah, Arizona, California, Nevada and Colorado I looked for 2 month and saw so many tents. When I found this one I asked to my self if was worse to spend so much money. Trust me is imposible to regret about it. Is so well design and perfect to mount it in all kind of weather. Super easy.
I was happy that I bought the groundsheet (helps so badly for keeping your tent clean and is so easy to leave it on or take it before folding. The awning kit is really good to specially to hang out at your rest area.
