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.
Unfortunately I crash tested my Backcountry 35L. I was on the highway and went down at 40-45mph on the left side of the bike. The panniers were fully loaded since I was on a trip and fortunately held together quite well. The outer bag did wear through in some spots but the inner bag was intact and more importantly all my gear stayed in the bags. I was able to purchase a separate bag to replace the damaged bag and use the original hardware.
I'm very impressed with the solid construction of the Mosko Moto bags!
I just received my Back Country panniers and I’m very impressed. I wanted soft luggage that felt more like hard luggage in how it’s mounted without a lot of mounting straps and flopping around and these definitely fit the bill! The bags only option was perfect for me as I was able to make mounting plates that match my hard luggage system so I can swap back and forth easily. The bags are very sturdy and well designed from the Molle mounting system to the velcro loops for rolling up slack straps to keep them put. My first trip will be the WABDR and I’m looking forward to putting these bad boys into service. Thanks Mosko Moto for all the thought, trials and excellent service in providing some of the best adventure riding accessories I’ve ever seen and owned.
Having two BMW, R1200 GSA’s, and one bike had hard boxes, and having realize all the benefits and performance of the soft bag panniers, it was obvious I needed to swap the other bike over also. Would never advise someone to use hard boxes off road, when this options available. There a great product.
Backcountry Pannier 35L - Left Side, Bag Only
I just received my Backcountry 35 panniers a couple of days ago and they are AWESOME! really tough, well thought out and best of all ... they look really cool! :-) Dealing with the guys at Moskomoto was ... as Lemmy from Revzilla would say, on a beard difficulty scale ... they would be a 1 - too easy!
Shipping was great and they kept me informed of the progress all the way, I only got the panniers as I wanted to mount them to my Giant Loop quick release racks. One thing I would mention if you are looking to mount them on a different rack system to theirs is that the panniers come pre-drilled so you might end up with a couple of holes not covered which you may want to glue some patches on from the inside (just to keep any dust or moisture out between the inner & outer bags) ... it doesn't affect the water proof side of things as the inner bag is untouched, just a couple of tiny pre-drilled holes on the outside which may not line up if you have different racks (Giant Loop racks are smaller in physical size to Moskomoto one's). I managed to get all but two of the pre-drilled holes hidden under my Giant Loop racks so all is good .. just a thing to be aware of. The Giant Loop racks aren't as hard core as the Moskomoto one's but I wanted a cleaner look on the bike when the panniers weren't on, that's all. The panniers sit great on the bike, keeping the weight down low but still high enough that you're not going to rub them on those tight twisty back roads (on the way to the dirt - I have a KTM 1290SA & R1200GS). All in all, I'm way pleased with the panniers ... Moskomoto make a great product and you can see the attention to detail in the way they are constructed ... I looked at pretty much every pannier on the market (hard & soft) and am glad I settled on these ... they look like they'll outlast the bike! :-)
