- Alps Mountaineering Lynx 2-Person Tent
- Peregrine Contour 30 Sleeping Bag
- Peregrine Perch Air Pad
- Peregrine Pro Stretch Pillow, size LG
When it comes to moto camping, every solo rider should purchase a 2-Person tent. There's more room within to get in and out of your riding gear and there's more floor space for stowing your gear while sleeping. The weight and volume penalties are virtually non-existent between 1 and 2-person setups. This kit is designed around getting a single rider out on their bike and camping comfortably. It doesn't have a crazy small packing density or an excessively large pack size, it's average.
The Alps Mountaineering Lynx 2-Person Tent features poles that pack down into 19" long segments, making it more suitable for on-the-bike packing than other tents with 22" or 24" lengths. It's equipped with dual doors and dual vestibules so you can devote one side to storing boots and other filthy moto gear, then use the other side for entry and exit.
The Peregrine Contour 30 Sleeping Bag features an anti-snag zipper and Perefill synthetic insulation for warmth. You'll be comfortable down to 30° F and can unzip the bag from the bottom up to regulate temperature on warmer nights. Nighttime essentials, like headlamps, can be stored within its stash pocket so you'll never have to search for something in the dark. The exterior shell is made of a 40D ripstop polyester, so it'll keep you warm for years to come.
A self-inflating Peregrine Perch Pad features an insulated core to minimize heat loss to the cold ground and the insulation also doubles as comfortable padding.
Last but not least is a large Peregrine Pro Stretch Pillow. Yes, you could ball up some of your moto gear and stuff it under your sleeping bag, but this pillow packs down to less than 3 liters and its synthetic fill feels like a traditional pillow.
This kit is designed around one rider, but the tent can support two riders as long as they're quite fond of each other.
Total Packed Volume:
- 38 liters
Individual Packed Dimensions:
- Tent: 6" W X 20" L (9.5 liters) packed, 5lbs 15oz weight
- Sleeping bag: 17" L x 9" W (18 liters) packed, 3lbs 5oz weight
- Sleeping pad: 12" L x 7" W (7.6 liters) packed, 1lbs 15oz weight
- Pillow: 12" L x 4.25" (2.8 liters) packed, 10oz weight
A combined volume of 38 liters is best stowed in a large dry bag. The 20" length dimension generally prevents the tent from squeezing into a saddlebag, but a large dry bag can usually be run across the tail of most mid-sized bikes, or vertically when strapped to a sissy bar. One trick is to store your tent poles independently from the rest of your tent. Running tent poles diagonally within a bag allows you to then morph the tent's proportions to suit your needs; you'll no longer be confined to a 20" length dimension.
