Planning an epic ride of your own? Here are a few products that will help keep you (and your devices) charged up.

Motorcycle accessories, Big Agnes tent
Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 mtnGLO Tent©Motorcyclist

Roomy enough for two (and with double doors), the $450 Copper Spur weighs just 3 pounds and packs up small. Patent-pending "mtnGLO" technology means integrated lighting. Classy!

Motorcycle gear, Goal Zero tent
Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel©Motorcyclist

Strap the Nomad to your pack while riding or leave it out at your campsite to turn sunshine into charged batteries. This little 7-watt panel ($80) is unaffected by rain or snow and weighs less than a pound.

Riding gear, Aerostitch Velcro bags

Don't leave on any trip without checking the Aerostich warehouse. From clothing to medical kits to books, the folks at 'Stich will have it. Lately we're fond of these tough nylon bags, which are weather-resistant and available in eight sizes (pricing varies).

Camping gear for motorcyclists, Exped sleeping pad
Exped SynMat 7 Sleeping Pad©Motorcyclist

After using this mat ($129)—and a few of the company's other products—we can say nobody knows camp comfort like Exped. This 3-inch-thick, 4.9 R-value SynMat 7 weighs only 30 ounces and packs down to 3.7 liters.

Motorcycle products, Jetboil camping stove

Is there a better camp companion than the $130 Jetboil MiniMo? Unless you can otherwise boil water in two minutes and eat/drink out of the same receptacle that packs down to 1 liter then, no, there isn't.
