Chest Rig add-on

The Apecat Harness was designed to be an ultra-comfortable and adaptable carry system featuring 1.5 Liter / 50oz Hydrapak® water reservoir with insulated hydration hose. The Apecat has the ability to be used as a minimal hip pack with just the main center compartment, or built out with side pockets and a fully featured shoulder strap for additional support. Add the Wildcat Chest Rig for quick access front storage for maximum Apecat capacity.

DESIGN

Worn over a jersey, external armor, or a large ADV jacket, the Apecat provides a wide range of adjustability and evenly distributes the weight of the 1.5L reservoir, tools, and your essentials. The Apecat provides ample organization, weather-resistant materials, and ultra-comfort for off-road ADV and trail riding.

The optional Wildcat Chest Rig pairs with the Apecat 9L Hip Pack. The Wildcat Chest Rig is equipped with two front pockets, one designed to provide quick access and secure transportation for a satellite communicator, like the Garmin inReach and InReach Mini. Opening the main storage pocket, you’ll find a removable Velcro panel with elastic webbing to secure small items such as a pocketknife or charging cables, plus room to store your phone, wallet, snacks, or other quick-access items without having to take off your pack. The Chest Rig back panel is also equipped with MOLLE for attaching it to other Mosko bags/luggage with MOLLE panels.

Please note: the Wildcat Chest Rig add-on is only available in Black. All three Apecat Harness colors share the black Chest Rig.

Apecat 9L

I replace a tank bag and backpack with is. Weight is off my back and on my hips now! Excellent quality and fit and finish.

It’s the little details that set Mosko from the others!

Apecat 9L Harness

Wore the new belt pack with harness for the first time yesterday, Finally found a pack system that works for day rides that doesn't weigh much and carries everything I need including my Garmin InReach SOS transponder. Great product.

I love this pack.

I used the Apecat last weekend on a 3 day trip inside the Kennedy Meadows extended area of the Eastern Sierras. Mostly really tight low speed rocky stuff on goat trails, some whoops.

Pros.
I could feel the sweat evaporating from my back after quick stops.
I could carry all my snacks, IFAK, Map & Compass, InReach, iPhone, 1.5L of water, Grayl water filter and a light toolkit for a 500 EXC with Mousses.
The weight was super easy to bear, nicely distributed and secure through the infinite whoops.

Con.
Only 1.
SoCal riding needs around 1 liter of water per hour, so this won't really cover that. I knew that going in, but it is a limitation.

But apart from that known issue, I love it and would buy again if I somehow lost this one.

Great job Mosko, 8/10.

Great product - perfect fit

This is second one I have purchased, it is a perfect size for daily use, but still great for those weeks long adventures.

Fantastic in the Heat!

I just finished the NVBDR where the temps were well above 110F for the first 2 days. This pack kept my back significantly cooler than a traditional backpack and helped to make the temps bearable. The side hip belt pockets were super convenient for quick access to snacks and other items without needing to take off the pack. As others have mentioned, the Apecat does a great job at distributing the weight across the hips, making it feel like you're not evening wearing a backpack. For longer, all day rides, you may need to carry additional water as the 1.5L water reservoir may not be sufficient. That said, it wasn't a problem during my trip as I was carrying surplus water and also welcomed opportunities to stop at service stations for cold water and some AC. This is definitely now my preferred backpack!
