Redverz Atacama Expedition Tent
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.

Best tent for motorcycle camping, but works great without a bike as well.
High-quality, easy-to-assemble, compact, relatively lightweight, waterproof, sturdy, and designed very thoughtfully. There's really nothing to love. I fit my Triumph Tiger 800 in the garage area, and I can stand up in the living area. It packs up small enough to bungee to my motorcycle. I've been rained on in high winds and stayed very comfortable. This is the best tent I've ever used. Get the sleeping area groundsheet to protect the underside from rocks.

I am a former Marine who researches every piece of kit I buy. I spend hours on forums, or reading the most recent motorcycle magazines in order to ensure my money supports the best product for me.
This tent is exceptional. I went on a trip without practicing putting it up prior to embarking (I usually just slide into a bivy sack and rack out), and was able to set this thing up in the rain without an issue.
The design is great. You can set it up in inclement weather which, if you lay it out properly, rain/snow will not get inside the sleeping quarters. I could use a few more pockets to place items (they have two decent pockets inside the tent), but I like having order inside my tent.
My friends initially thought I was nuts to buy such a large tent, but once they realize that I am usually within 1-2lbs of their tents, BUT I get massive size to work on my bike, they ask right away where to buy one.
I've noticed that Redverez now makes a one person tent. I don't tolerate people well, and usually travel alone, but I can say that the weight different between the one person and the 2-3 person isn't large enough to concern me (maybe if you are sub 500cc it might be a better idea to get the one person).
If you are looking for a tent for your motorcycle adventure, please consider this one. Revzilla is still fantastic. I ordered with free shipping and received in 2 days.)
