I want Cheap, Good Quality, Small Packing, Moto Camping Gear...
It's a question everyone has seen on every forum or Facebook group. Someone asking about what gear is good, but it needs to pack small and they don't want to spend a lot of money.
Buying gear for motorcycle camping can be a daunting task BUT we try to make it as easy as possible with the selection of gear we provide. But even so, the three major factors to consider are cost, quality, and pack size. Can you have a cheap, small packing, sleeping bag, that's down filled, and accurate for the temperature it's rated at? No, it doesn’t exist. The best visual representation for this is using a Venn diagram.
As we get into blogs and articles about motorcycle camping gear, keep these three things in mind, because these attributes are going to help determine what you buy. Of course there are several used outlets for gear that will save you some money, but generally speaking, that gear is going to be cheaper than new but probably more expensive still than the Amazon Basics equivalent.
I’ve seen a handful of new campers become overwhelmed with options and cost, and hopefully this will get you in the right mindset when purchasing your small packing moto camping gear.
