Experiencing the outdoors on two wheels, whether it’s a weekend getaway or an epic, multistate adventure motorcycle tour, is best done by forgoing the hotels and finding a place to camp. If you’ve ever had the unfortunate circumstance of camping in the rain, you come out knowing that you don’t ever want to do it again or want to make sure that you have a waterproof tent.

We’ve selected some easy-to-pack and waterproof tents that you can take with you on your next motorcycle camping trip.

Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1-Person Tent

Perfect for the solo motorcycle camper, the Lynx 1-Person Tent has enough room for you and your gear with its extra vestibule.Amazon

Weighing in at 4.2 pounds and packing down to 17-1/4 inches long by 5-1/2 inches wide, the Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1-Person Tent packs small and light, giving you more room to pack other camping supplies. The included rain fly expands the covered, usable area so that you can store your shoes, backpack, or any other gear outside of your tent and away from the rain.

Coleman Dome 3-Person Tent

If you're enjoying your motorcycle camping trip with another rider or a passenger, then buy a three-person tent, like the Dome from Coleman. A general rule of thumb when tent buying is that you want to add another person in your decision to account for gear and items you'll bring with you on your trip. The Dome features a waterproof exterior with inverted seams, cuffed zippers, and a welded floor that ensures there are no holes from where the material is stitched together. The three-person Dome weighs in at 8.2 pounds and packs down to 2 feet long, 5 inches wide, and 5 inches thick, which is on the heavier side but can still be packed on a motorcycle.

If you want more or less room, the Dome also comes in a two-person, four-person, and six-person size.

A welcomed feature on any tent is a second door. No more crawling over your friend or significant other and waking them, just unzip your side of the Bessport two-person tent, and freedom. The tent and rain fly are both seam taped to reduce leaks, welding on the floor of the tent keeps the bottom of your sleeping bag dry, and waterproofing the shelter in the event of rain is done in under 60 seconds with four side-release buckles attached to the tabs of the tent pole grommets. In the event of wind and tumultuous weather, you can stake down the rain fly with the four attached guylines strengthening your shelter. The Bessport 2-Person Tent weighs 5.2 pounds and measures 16.5 inches long by 5.9 inches wide when packed.
