Our Favorite Camping Gear – What we use.
Here are a few items that we could not do without on our camping adventures.
We have been asked recently to link some of the items that we have for camping and for some of the things that we feel, enhance our camping experience. We are big fans of Dome Life and they have really inspired us to get out and camp more. Go check out their YouTube Channel. Not all of these products are utilized when motorcycle camping. However since we trailer and camp out of the Jeep we utilize most of these items on each outing. Listed below are a few links of the items that we use. We are not sponsored in anyway. We have purchased these items. So let’s get started.
Gazelle T4 Hub Tent – (Not a motorcycle camping option) This tent has been a game changer for our camping trips. It is so easy to put up and take down. It allows for me to stand up (I am 6’2) in the tent. There is plenty of space. It has great ventilation and the windows are awesome. It is built with quality materials and the zippers are strong. You can see our review below. The one drawback of this tent is the pure size of it. This will not be a motorcycle tent option. It barely fits in my 2015 Jeep JK. You can learn more about the gazelle on their website. I ordered ours directly through this site. – https://www.gazelletents.com/Product/gazelle-camping-hub-tent-7177
Kelty Gunnison 3 backpacking tent – My motorcycle camping tent of choice This is a great tent for the bike. Jamie and I have slept many nights in this tent. It is a snug fit for the two of us, however it still allows for our motorcycle gear to hang out with us. It is light and packs up nicely. It goes up quick and is a good 3 season tent. This tent is designed for compact use and it fits the bill for motorcycle camping. We love our Gunnison. You can still find this tent, however it is not in the kelty line up at this time.
Ozark Trail Himont 20F Climatech mummy sleeping bag. We have been using these bags for the past couple of years and they have done well for us. They are easy to store, keeps you warm and has been very durable. The price is right and we have zero complaints about these bags. I will say that we usually don’t camp in weather below the mid 30’s. With that being said these bags work well for our needs. Read more about them here. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Ozark-Trail-Himont-20F-Climatech-Regular-Mummy-Sleeping-Bag/857849088
Nemo Cosmo 3D air Sleeping Pad When we motorcycle camp we utilize this product. It stores in small spaces, does not weigh alot and can be inflated using a built in foot pump. It keeps you off the ground and provides some comfort. We have spent many motorcycle camping nights on these pads. They are not cheap, but deals can be found.

Intex Comfort Plush Queen air mattress I once heard, that if you make camping comfortable and easy, then you will go camping more often. This is the truth. Sleep is a key factor in Jamie and I having a a good camping experience. With the T4 Gazelle, we have plenty of space for this queen sized mattress. It sits 18″ tall and makes for a wonderful nights sleep. It is not small, however it is a no brainer for jeep camping. We love this mattress. It blows up easily and deflates and stores just as easy. Some of the best money spent for a great night of sleep. We liked it so much, we purchased the full sized one as well. It worked great a couple of weeks ago solo camping. You can see it here.
