Just gets better and better...

I own a lot of Mosko stuff. Jackets,tank bags, pants...I thought when I bought my reckless80 for my KTM 690 that it couldn't get any better. Ahhh, but then I bought a brand new 1290 Super Adventure and outfitted it with the Backcountry offset kit and a 30litre tailpack. Guess what...IT GOT BETTER! Perfect fit, low weight, HUGE capacity,ease of use,engineering that makes sense! STOP SHOPPING>>>ORDER THIS STUFF NOW!

The best motorcycle gear on the market!

The best motorcycle gear on the market! Great quality product and very easy to install. They go above and beyond to please and help the client, I lost parts of my tank bag harness and at the time they didn’t have any at the store, they took one from their bikes and send it to me.

Mosko Moto es la mejor marca en el mercado de productos para motos!
La mejor calidad y garantía comprobada, perdí partes de la bolsa del tanque en un accidente y aunque no las tenían tomaron las partes de una de sus motos y me las mandaron.

Found the best soft cases

'22 R1250 GSA. I rode for 10 years with hard cases, plenty of space, secure. I cracked and replaced 2, flipped myself off bike when foot got caught under pannier.
So, search for soft bags began. Tried many subpar bags, got my gear wet, tent didn't fit, less than secure. Then I found Mosko 35L panniers and 40L top duffel. I'll describe with list of words: quality, room, accessibility, looks, rugged, safe, dry, portable, secure, expensive. I added the last one because you get what you pay for. Buy them. Cheers, Todd W

Backcountry 35’s - 23’ BMW R1250 GSA

I’ve just purchased the 35 ltr setup and am just as impressed as I had been when I purchased the Reckless 10, 40 and 80’s. Been using the Mosko Moto systems for years, excellent design and amazing toughness of the product is what sold me! If you thinking soft luggage…there really is no other choice than Mosko’s line up.

35l panniers

I haven't used the bags yet other than riding My T7 on some local dirt and gravel roads around here so I don't feel like I can give an accurate full review. What I can comment on is the quality workmanship. That was the first thing I noticed, it's impressive! What I also want to comment on that I do know about is Mosko's customer service. I had an issue that I thought was a problem with the bag frames. When i contacted Mosko I was given a suggestion that might help. I was told I could try that or they would send out new frames to try. The suggestion turned out to resolve my issue so all was good. In the end the person I had spoken with checked back with me to make sure I was satisfied. I was.

On a side note, when I contacted Mosko there was a message that most all staff was on a trip to Ecuador, think. I'm guessing the person I dealt with drew the short straw and was left behind and didn't get to go on an awesome trip. Even with that - she was kind, helpful patient. No note of bitterness from her at all!!

Backcountry 35L Pannier Kit (V2.1)

Color
BLACK
5L 'Aux Pox' Auxiliary Pockets

The 100% waterproof Backcountry Pannier Kit is our flagship product and is designed for transcontinental adventure touring, enduro-style riding, and camping from your bike.

Sold in pairs, the standard configuration of this kit includes two 30L pannier bags and two 5L Aux Pox auxiliary pockets (one on each bag), for 70L of total capacity. Four Aux Pox (80L) or No Aux Pox (60L) options are also available, see the variant button options above. 

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.

*Sold as a pair - Just add a bike-specific rack and you are ready to rumble.

*Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1250GSA, R1200GSA, 850GSA, or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Racks + Adapters' section of our site, or email us with questions.

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 25L Panniers. If you’re really serious about weight, take off your racks (shaving 8-10 pounds off the bike) and get a Reckless 80L 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, 850GSA, or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Hardware & Parts' section of our site, or email us with questions.

“So far these are hands down the best Panniers I’ve ever owned. Like most of us riders, I researched every option possible.
