Very durable bags.

I used these in Ecuador on a trip with Freedom Ecuador as they were own the bike I rented. I was doing the 14 day enduro trip (80% off road) so they gave me a "well used" set in anticipation that I would be dumping the bike a few times, which I did in fact. They looked none the worse off after a low speed departure and a couple of tip-overs. The waterproofing is outstanding, these as I said were well used and they were completely dry the entire trip, which is especially impressive considering some of the equatorial jungle rains we saw, which are barely believable even after experiencing them. They also were partially submerged on a couple of deep water crossings and again completely dry. The inner/ outer bag is completely genius, can not be overstated how nice is was to pull out a clean dry bag out and carry that into the hotel and leave the muddy nasty outer bag outside. I'm sure from the website video's that the locking system works well, never had chance to use it there, theft is apparently not as popular of a pastime there as is it is here, no one ever touched our stuff. Something they don't point out on the website which is also a great feature of the inner/ outer bag is wet storage. If you want to keep soaked socks, clothes, swimsuits, etc separate from your clean dry clothes until you have time to dry them out but want to keep them clean, you can put them in the bottom of the outer bag and put the inner bag on top. This keeps the mud and or dust from the trail from turning your stuff to a muddy mess and keeps your dry stuff clean and dry. Simply fantastic, durable, and well thought out bags, will be purchasing a set of their bags for my bike at home when they catch up and get stuff back in stock lol.

Offset Panniers

I was a little worried because the website said you might need adapters if you have factory KTM racks. Everything fit just fine on my KTM790. I love the orange color to my the bike. The latch works awesome and the dovetail wedge mount keeps everything tight. I ordered the extra pockets. They are great, but you need to have some patience to get them installed. I would definitely. Recommend them.

Great bags

I bought the limited edition 35l back country pannier kit, I love them the are exceptionally well built, they look great on my bike and am looking forward to getting out on a real adventure this summer.im glad I purchased from mosko moto and would highly recommend this company's product the have a lot of product features and are very well thought out

Backcountry Offset 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 one 35L bag and one 25L bag, to accommodate your bike's exhaust offset.

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.

*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.

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, 850GSA, 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
