When Choosing Camping Gear for Motorcycles, the Atacama Tent should be the first on your list. Redverz Gear has achieved camping nirvana with The Atacama Expedition Tent. With 23 inches of additional sleeping room, 3-person capacity, room for cots and the ability to sleep either cross-wise or lengthwise, The Atacama Expedition Tent is the most versatile and comfortable motorcycle tent known to man. The small vestibule of its’ predecessor, The Series II Expedition Tent, has been annexed into the sleeping bay, adding precious slumber space and enabling each camper to use a separate door when entering and exiting the tent.
The Atacama offers 2 different, purpose-fitted ground sheets for either the sleeping area or the garage. Sleeping area ground covers continue to protect your investment and extend the life of the floor, while a precision-fit garage ground cloth keeps condensation down and high traffic areas tidy. Move amongst different areas of the tent without having to continually strap boots on and off.
A new mesh panel in the large vestibule door increases airflow and offers protection from bugs. Choose total privacy or vent with just our breathable, bug resistant mesh. Longer, 9-inch pegs are stronger and more versatile to address varied terrain and new storage pouches allow hi visibility guy lines to be completely and neatly tucked away. The Atacama comes packed in a black compression stuff sack. Redverz waterproof, 50-Liter dry bag is the perfect fit to further protect the tent and is an optional purchase. With an exceptional pack size of just 21” x 9” - tent, poles and pegs all in - Redverz Gear continues to deliver the most spacious, functional and high quality motorcycle tent on the market.

Worth the waitBy: Gary Mellor on 20 July 2018I had been following the Redverz Atacama tent for a few years and read every review I could find about the tent in this time, it was always an overwhelmingly positive review and after the purchase I understand why. Adventure Moto in Aus was the cheapest local supplier by a considerable margin and comparable to what it costs in the US, a great effort for a local supplier to be so competitive. Once the tent arrived I wanted to put it up and see what I got for my money, if you watch the Redverz videos it was only a 10min job even the first time. Overall it is a very well constructed tent that looks like it will do what I require perfectly. Once it was up I noticed that it was missing one clip to help support the motorcycle bay to the aluminium posts, it looked like it had just not been sown in. I decide to let Adventure Moto know more to cover myself if I had a problem in the future if it ripped without the extra support the clip would give. Adventure Moto advised they would contact Redverz and got back to me within a week. Their response was above and beyond what I expected, a new outer fly sheet was being sent out to me, no questions no wait it was already on its way. Sometimes it pays to buy a quality product from a local supplier and the price as far as I am concerned is now just money well spent. I will be using Adventure Moto for future purchases and can highly recommend the Redverz Atacama as a great quality product that I look forward to using for many years to come.
More than just a Motorcycle TentBy: Andrea Lanagan on 12 February 2018I bought this tent to specifically go on the bike, however, it has also become my main camping tent. For such a lightweight tent it is extremely tough and durable, so easy to put up and down and can weather any storm. The sleeping area easily fits two King Single mattresses if 4WD or 3 Helinox camp stretchers if on the bike.
TardisBy: Ian on 12 February 2018I suggest renaming this tent the Tardis. - compact and light weight when packed up but very roomy when put up! Compact enough to be packed into a 65L dry bag along with an air mattress, sleeping bag, pair of shoes, pair of sandals, pump, tool roll, thermos and other stuff I can't remember. When it's up (erected?) there's standing room in the sleeping section and the day/bike parking section. My 1200RT with panniers fits in the front section and the drive through feature makes it easy to get out. The nylon floor in the sleeping section is what keeps the weight & packed volume down. But make sure you buy and fit the nylon groundsheet which in effect becomes a a protective disposable (if holed) floor. Having said that, I haven't had to replace mine. There's a few options for air flow in warmer weather. Purpose built for motorcycle camping this is a great product. Pricey but you get what you pay for.
Best tent I've ever ownedBy: Justin van Boog on 15 January 2018We bought the Redverz Atacama tent for our motorcycle trips as we wanted something lightweight but bigger inside than a hiker's tent. After a lot of research, we found this tent and decided to take the plunge an buy it. I can't say enough good things about this tent! We've used it on several long motorcycle trips and it has been fantastic. In the QLD heat it opens up so much you get a good breeze through it, and even camping in the cold in Iceland it kept us warm and comfortable. Our Triumph Tiger 800 fits in it well (panniers off) and we now use it for our normal camping as well as motorcycle camping because it is so easy to set-up and pack-up. The amazing thing is that it's even big enough to fit both of our Helinox stretchers and mattresses in so we don't have to rough it on our bike trips. You will not be disappointed spending the money on this tent.
