It's a pair of coveralls with the arms/legs cut off and sewed shut and the chest cut off at the top of zipper and rolled down. You can customize it to the dimensions you need, I started with a XL pair of coveralls. For the handful of times a year I'll camp off this bike it's perfect.

Laugh 03 KLR Camping Setup




The KLR is a lighter dual sport bike so didn't want to put wide bags on the back or have anything stick out to catch the wind.

Bicycle pannier pags reinforced with steel plates on the back with locking top hooks on racks hold the food, stove/fuel bottle, mini-compressor and other heavy items to keep the center of gravity low.
Top commuter box is great for getting to items quick and because of the height above ground it's used for clothing, first aid kit and snacks/water. 2 man tent on the seat with a sleeping bag fastened together by a mini-ratchet.
Left side rack has the orange rolled up self inflating sleep mat kept on the rear racks by mini-ratchet. I keep a tripod type fishing seat as well folded on top of that bag.
I don't have any front bags but keep the cell phone on the bars with a GPS stuck to the mini windscreen.
White tube is the stock tool kit with added pipe clamps, self sealing tape, zip ties etc.

That's me all packed up for camping in Western Australia!

Here's a pic of my first time loading the bike down with gear.

-My black Gregory pack holds most of my camping gear - tarp, food, stove, clothes, water, etc. It's held on by NRS straps (link below). I've used these straps for years and love them. The red bungee net was already on my bike so I just pulled it over my pack... It's really not serving any purpose here... Just extra support. Note: There was zero chance of rain this day so I didn't cover my pack... Otherwise I would have put it in a large, heavy duty trashbag.

-The camo roll is my bed roll. Waterproof bivy sac with sleeping bag, air pad (Big Agnes), and small pillow already in position. It's simply secured to the bike with paracord using a trucker's-hitch to really cinch it down. A trucker's-hitch is an invaluable knot, in my opinion.

-The sidebags are a cheap canvas horse saddlebag that I got off Amazon (link below). Inside are bike tools, cable/lock, spare tube, and rain gear. I was surpised how well the saddlebag worked... There is alot of room inside the pockets. Downside is it that it's canvas and not waterproof... Everything inside is in heavy zip lock bags.

I've got some room to grow in the gear acquisition department but for now this redneck setup works pretty well... The load handled really well.

But what's the fun in that?

Slip on sandles or something similar FTW! Walmart sells those neoprene shoes, used to be called Water Socks, for around $10. Pack small and light, work great.

I wonder is using a pair of tyvek coveralls (cheap, waterproof... Lowes/Home Depot) as a liner would be a good idea for waterproofing (maybe not "proof" but very resistant)???

The yellow bag is empty I use it to hold clothing during the day or shopping before camp.
