Recommendations for a light/compact tent, sleeping bag, and mat

Question

I like motorcycling and I like camping. But as yet I’ve never combined the two. So, looking for recommendations for a light/compact tent, sleeping bag, and mat. All the stuff I currently have is ‘car’ sized

  1. I went in summer with cheapest stuff of ebay. Tent 10£, sleeping bag 10£. Instead of mat use blanket. This will save you some space.

  2. I can’t remember the model of my tent, but it’s a vango Icarus something or other. Had to take it in the car last time as my old bike (MT-07) was too small to carry much.\n\nIt would fit on the back of the tracer with a pair of ratchet straps. Smaller sleeping bags would be good though!\n\nFor an idea of the size, I went to the shop and found my other bike mates had managed to get my bike inside my porch! Haha

  3. Bike Specific stuff is really dear, I got a Vango tent bit like Richards and highly rate it after it’s only use was in torrential rain and a gale in Skye. Nip down to Go outdoors in Granton and have a nosey. Also got little fold down chairs really light about £60 but fold down to next to nothing. They had some good compression sleeping bags as well. Great place for ideas and you also have Decathlon as well to have a look a ideas. Now would be the time to perhaps grab an end of season bargain#

  4. Down sleeping bag, exped 7 downmat, exped Orion tent, hello chair ( 25 amazon, folds up tiny) jet boil cooker. Make sure that you can use everything for more than one purpose..travel light travel light. My bike in pic did 26 countries, 84 days and I was self sufficient.

  5. this is the tent I have. big porch to put your bike gear in if it’s wet, invaluable! http://www.coleman.eu/it/p-26287-tatra-2.aspx

  6. I thought this looked like good value… http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131959908516

  7. 3 season sleeping bag, roll mat, Easycamp Shadow 2 man tent, packs small and light 🙂

  8. Tracer can handle a big tent too
