Looks and feels great so far!

After much online research I decided on the Mosko Backcountry 35L Pannier Kit (V2.1) for my bike. I’d used hard pannier bags on my previous ADV bike but decided to try the “soft” bags this time. I received the bags a few weeks ago and the quality and features seem great! As its still mid-winter up in Canada and my bike is in “hibernation” I haven’t yet had the opportunity to actually mount these on my bike and test them on the trails. Nevertheless from what I can see so far the quality, size, styling and features seem to perfectly meet my needs! I can't wait to use them on my next road-trip adventure!

Top quality pannier bags

Mounted the 35L & 25L bags on my new BMW F850 GSA and the pair looks incredible with sufficient space for my camping trips and fly rod! The quality is amazing and gives me confidence that they will hold up for many years to come.

Love this gear!

I’m new to to dual sport riding, and these bags are awesome. The easy detachment system is actually easy, and the size is perfect for our weeks long trip into the country. I recommend these to anyone looking for gear that lives up to its name and the customer service is top notch.

My new panniers

I've only used them for work so far. However, I have several trips planned in the early spring, summer, and fall. WRT, to size, these bags will be more than adequate. I have a Triumph Scrambler XE, the pannier racks and heat shield(and wrap) provide enough space/protection as well. I thought about going with Wolfman panniers. I felt these, MOSKO Moto panniers, offered better protection in bad weather and of I went down. Once they arrived I knew I made the right choice.

KTM 890 Rally

Installed the 25L Pannier kit & Duffle bag in less than 3 beers on a new KTM 890 Rally. Everything aligned fine & product is REALLY well designed and built for the long haul. Be advised the front replacement bolt head on right side hits the exhaust pipe and I had to dimple it with a “finishing hammer” to provide clearance. All good. Love the quick disconnect!! Thanks Mosko! You did yourself proud!!

Backcountry 35L Pannier Kit (V2.1)

The Backcountry Pannier is our flagship product, designed for long-distance adventure touring, hardcore enduro-style riding, and camping from your bike. This kit includes two 35L bags, for 70L of total capacity.

With bomb-proof construction and heavy-duty materials, these bags can really take a beating. Our quick-mount wedge system makes it easy to take the panniers on/off the bike so you can store them in your tent or have them by the fire without wrestling with straps. Our new proprietary ‘Speed-Pin’ latch ensures that the mounting system is always engaged.

This is the system for long distance travelers and people living off their bikes. Guides, instructors, and RTW riders: this system was designed for you.

We created the Backcountry Pannier because we were tired of over-the-seat soft panniers that flop around in rough terrain, have no external pockets or stash spots, disintegrate after a couple crashes, and are a total pain in the ass to get on and off the bike. We wanted something like a backpacking frame pack, but that mounts on your bike, and that stays connected to the bike and stays waterproof no matter how many times you lay the bike down.

The Backcountry's are super easy to click on and off the bike, and because the waterproofing is accomplished inside the bag (thanks to the two-bag system), minor external crashes and scuffs won’t faze your panniers at all. Thanks to the thick, welded seam internal liner, you’re also protected from internal abrasion: for example tools, or a camp stove, or some other hard piece of gear vibrating and rubbing against the inner surface over a long period of time.

Backcountry panniers will mount seamlessly on most OEM and aftermarket pannier rack systems. If you don't already have racks, we recommend Outback Motortek Standard Frame pannier racks, available in the Racks & Adapters section of our website. 
Rolling Updates to Version 2.1:

  • We introduced the Speed-Pin latch system, replacing the rotary draw latch we used before, for an ‘always-on’ attachment to the bike.
  • We upgraded the interior liner material from welded PVC to welded PU with a lighter cyan interior color to make things easier to find. The new PU is more environmentally friendly, more malleable 
  • We reintroduced the 25L size, and also the option of an offset kit for bikes with asymmetrical pannier racks to accommodate exhaust.
  • We added an aluminum locking bar at the top of the bag, to accommodate our Compact or Heavy Duty ADV Locks, and a stash pocket inside the beavertail for lock storage.
  • We replaced the sewn-on rear pocket in the prior version with the new Dry Pocket system – a harness and drybag - which can be bolted to the front or rear of the pannier (or both), or removed entirely.
  • We molded a new custom removable aluminum ladderlock buckle for the front beavertail, replacing the old stamped aluminum ones. The new buckle is as tough as the old one, but easier to adjust.
  • We added MOLLE webbing behind the beavertail, and also a handy tool holder for larger items like a hatchet, knife, or saw.
  • We added an extra layer of Hypalon armor on the outside of the beavertail and reflective panels on the sides.

Want to protect your panniers and gear from thieves? Add our Compact or Heavy Duty ADV Locks, which store conveniently in the pouch on the back of the beavertail, and integrate with the aluminum Locking Bar on top of the pannier to both a) lock the bag to the bike and b) lock the bag closed.

Backcountry Weight Note: The Backcountry is heavier than the Scouts, and it’s also heavier than a traditional over-the-seat saddlebag. What you get for that weight is bomb-proof construction and materials, a completely stable mounting system (no flopping), and lots of stash spots. Lighter is not always better if it comes at the price of functionality or durability. If weight is your primary concern but you want to stick with a rack system, check out the Scout 25 panniers. If you’re really serious about weight, take off your racks (shaving 8-10 pounds off the bike) and get a Reckless 80 instead.

Wedge-Mount Compatibility Note: In July 2016, we switched the backcountry pannier wedge and frame from machined HDPE to molded glass-filled nylon. The new wedge/frame are not compatible with the old version. To determine which wedge/frame you have, check on the back of the wedge. If it is flat & smooth, that's HDPE. If it has an inset honeycomb pattern, that's molded nylon. We have extra wedges and frames of both materials in stock available for order by special request.

Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1250GSA, R1200GSA or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Hardware & Parts' section of our site, or email us with questions.

We needed this.

Product Creation at Mosko is an effort born of necessity. Everyone on our team rides – and time on the trail translates to an innovative, always improving product line. Crafting gear that will outperform in even the most harsh riding conditions means we make no compromise, ever.

“So far these are hands down the best Panniers I’ve ever owned. Like most of us riders, I researched every option possible. Didn’t matter what country they came from or what I had to do to get them I just wanted the best functioning and bomb proof system around. In my opinion these are the best available.”

– Anthony Fry, 2018
