Best 2 man tent for motorcycle touring and camping
Alps Mountaineering Lynx 2 – Overall Best
Lynx 2 is one of the best sellers from Alps Mountaineering. You can store your most needed gears near you on its overhead gear loft and side mesh storage pockets.
This tent is easy to pack, assemble & disassemble. Its free-standing two-pole design with aluminum poles allows it to stand all time even in strong storms because its factory sealed floor and fly will provide you the best weather protection. On the caring side, it takes about 10 minutes to set up and 10 minutes to disassemble.
You may like to have this Lynx 2 because it has a 75D 185T poly taffeta floor which has a 2000mm coating and waterproof fly buckles to protect you from wet weather and also has 75D 185T polyester fly to resists UV damage.
To store your bags and other stuff it has two waterproofed vestibules gear storage and has 1-1 door on each side for easy entry and exit. I recommend buying its tent floor saver and place it under the tent for extra safety from muddy and wet grounds.
By the way, this isn’t the lightest tent on the market as it weighs 5.9 pounds but it has everything you need for 2 men camping and in case you need extra space to store or something else you can go for lynx 3 (3 person tent). Note – Wash it with your hand for the tent’s long life.
Hyke and Byke Zion 2 – Runner Up
Zion 2 person tent has two doors, two vestibules, and corner pockets to give you a roomy experience and PU 5000 footprint & detachable ceiling loft pockets come at no extra cost which will protect your tent floor and you from getting wet.
It’s not even ended here because it has PU 5000 rainfly, bathtub floor, and taped floor to keep the rain out even in stormy weather. But I recommend finding some safer place when the storms going to turn mad. The tent has better breath-ability and packs in a small area with an included carrying sack which makes it perfect for backpacking and motorcycle camping trips in all 3 seasons.
To make this tent lightweight and durable on the same hand hyke & byke uses no-see-um mesh walls and 7000 Series aluminum alloy stakes for an ultralight freestanding fast 10-minute setup.
It weighs only 3.81 lbs if you are setting up a tent with rainfly, poles and footprint only where tent body is of 1.91 lbs and full tent except footprint weighs only 5.49 lbs.
Coleman Sundome 2 Person Tent – Budget Option
Coleman Sundome 2 person tent has very specific and unique selling points to take place in our best 2 person tent’s list like its strong frame will easily withstand 35+ mph winds and the WeatherTecTM system’s welded corners and inverted corners seams to keep water from getting inside the tent.
Although this camping tent is ideal for camping in warm weather with ground vent and large windows which will help to push warm air up and out to keep you always comfortable while it also comes with rainfly for extra weather protection but it is not made for handling strong rains so you need to check the weather before leaving home with this tent.
If you want to use some gadgets inside your tent the E-port will make it easy to bring electricity in. You can fit 1 queen size air bed inside the tent if you want more comfort. But I don’t think that any backpacker or motorcycle camper can afford the weight of a bed.
