My gear is the same as my backpacking gear. My 1-person tent has busted zippers, so I got a 2-person (a legitimate 2-person) to stand in until I get it fixed. Ironically, the larger tent weighs less, but sadly is more bulky. When camping alone, it's palatial.
It has a few features that I think are excellent. One is the rainfly goes way out, and can hide my size-13 Alpinestars Scouts. The other is that there's room inside for 2 people and the rest of their moto gear if the night's going to be rainy or icy.
I sometimes bring a water filter, depending on the trip and availability of water on the route.
I actually have a small bearcan I carry, as well, when out in bear country. I'm paranoid and don't want a bear taking my bike apart on a quest for food. Doubles as a short campseat. Even if there are no bears, it keeps the other critters out of my stuff.
Everything except the pad goes in my sidebags and a big bag I carry on the back. Sadly, the big bag isn't waterproof. I need to do something about that, someday, besides wrapping it in a large contractors trash bag.
If I turn the big bag sideways, I can strap a gas can on behind it, too.

I like the idea of the redverz. They look real cool.
Not sure I could justify carrying something that big though.

Do you think that is overkill? Don't get me wrong, that is a cool set up but is it necessary.We are riding KLR's and they can take almost anything nature.
I will be taking a 8 day trip and camping most of the way. I would like to bring only essentials plus a comfort item or two. The less to carry, the less to pick up.

Uh, I think he was referring to the trees found in New Mexico, Mesquites, rather than the low flying 747s we Northerners call mosquitos!!
I'm just sayin'!!

i also have a thick quilted emergancy blanket (highquality version) that works great in hammock but wanting to save room/weight this trip im just using the mat for same purpose ..
it really works great for both in tent and hammock .. ive tried alot insulated air mattresses and i end up freezing or just not comfy .. but i have a bad back ..
