Backcountry 30L is just my beginning....

Ashley...thank you for explaining MoskoMoto products @ IMS outdoors near Chicago, IL. This is my first Mosko purchase and it's been the best accessory for my adventure trips. Looking forward to a complete set of panniers in the near feature. Thanks...Laz

Very happy with my Backcountry 30L Duffle

I recently bought the Pan America Special and needed storage. As the whole world is on backorder I was only able to get the Backcountry 30L Duffle at the time but at least I'd have something. I'm very happy with my purchase. Currently I'm using it to carry my tool roll, air pump, rain gear, extra jacket, jump battery with cables, tire repair kit, sneakers and hat in the dry sack. Having opening at both ends makes it very easy to get to the items I want to access often. I'm also carrying my owners manual, spare USB cables, EZ-Pass, sunscreen, bug repellant, registration and some other small items in the two pouches inside the beaver tail. So just with this one duffle, I can carry everything I need for day trips, commuting and some off-roading. It has kept my gear dry and safe. The duffle is tightly secured to my bike with the Mosko cinch straps. The beaver tail has also come in very handy. I've secured take-out food in it, a laptop (I knew it wouldn't be raining), boxes destined for UPS and other items. The whole system just works.
I haven't had to use the backpack feature yet so I can't speak to how that will work but the "suitcase" handle is a nice feature when I need to carry the bag.
My only complaint is that there isn't a quick release system for it. It's not hard to undo the cinch straps and pull the duffle off the bike but a quick release would be awesome.
I've since ordered the Mosko panniers and the Nomax tank bag as they recently became available. Between the panniers, duffle and tank bag I should have more than enough storage for longer multi-week trips.

Great duffel. Great product.

This is the third piece of luggage I've purchase from Mosko Moto and its quality is equal to every piece I've gotten the past from Mosko: Great quality, very durable, superb usability. I like how they are always making small changes to the gear based on real riding experience and trips. I own and have used the reckless 80, the soft panniers, and now the duffel. I'll be getting the nomax tank bag when they get back in stock. I just hope I can have the tank bag to try on my next trip the last week of Aug.

Backcountry 30l duffel

I order this to complete my set for a new bike, love the quality and usability of mosko painners and duffel. There product just work great and keep my gear dry! Did order the locking system for both they are also great! Hope you also enjoy these as much as me. You can't go wrong with any of there products, when in stock. If your going on longer trips you may want to look at the backcountry 40l as well.

Backcountry 30L Duffle/Pack (V2.0)

This moto-duffle does it all: it's a duffle, a backpack, and a quick-stash spot during the day. It's a way to keep your wet jacket separate from your dry sleeping bag. It serves as a clean food prep surface next to the campfire and a convenient tool tray for roadside field repairs. Pair it with our Backcountry Cinch Straps for rock-solid attachment to your bike. The newly updated Backcountry Duffle is available in two sizes, a 40L version and a 30L version.

People have been strapping all kinds of miscellaneous duffles to the back of their bikes since motorcycles were invented. Do a quick google search for ‘waterproof motorcycle duffle’ and you’ll see what I mean. The same basic welded seam waterproof roll-top duffle is presented a hundred times over, with different logos. It turns out that when you start from scratch and ask the question ‘how should an ADV duffle function’ you end up with something that looks and functions a lot different.

With the Backcountry Duffle we wanted to design a motorcycle bag from the ground up, instead of starting with a kayak/rafting drybag. Two things jumped out at us right away. First, we hated having to unpack the entire back of the bike just to put something in or take it out. If you picture a traditional roll-top duffle, the straps that connect it to the bike are going over the opening, which means that you have to undo the straps to get inside. Plus, because the bag is sitting on the back of the bike, by the time you unroll the opening it is too high to see inside. So you take it off the bike and set it on the ground. If you’re getting in and out of the bag several times a day this starts to get pretty annoying.

Second, traditional single-layer drybag duffles have a very limited lifespan. There are so many things that can cause them to fail. Campfire sparks, abrasion from a crash, abrasion from the rack it sits on, heat from the exhaust, cracks from sun damage, etc. As soon as anything happens to the bag, it’s not waterproof anymore. And if that happens in the middle of a trip it sucks.

We came up with the idea of a bag that’s actually two bags – an inner waterproof bag and an outer abrasion-proof bag – to solve that problem. Then we made it a double-ended roll top instead of a top-loader, so you can get things in and out without unstrapping it from the bike. Then we added a beavertail on top of that, so if you need to stash your jacket, or wet/dirty items that you don’t want inside the drybag, these things can be stored externally without getting inside the duffle at all.

Then we added backpack straps. Riding 50+ miles on dirt is no big deal on an adventure bike, but if you break down and find yourself hiking out, it’s a long friggin way man. Having a comfortable backpack is key. That was the original idea behind the backpack straps, but it turns out it’s also super handy for getting everything into (or up to) a hotel room in a single trip. When you’re traveling internationally, sometimes it’s not ok to leave half your stuff on the bike while you take the other half inside. With the BC 30/40, put the duffle on your back, grab a pannier in each hand, and you’re mobile. Plus the straps make it a great airline carry-on for fly-in trips or general travel.

Inside the beavertails there are two nylon reinforced mesh pockets for wet/dry items (like a toothbrush), a document pocket which works great for maps, or for your bike documents and passport. The document pocket is especially helpful at border crossings where you have to stop at multiple customs offices on both sides of the border. Remove the document pocket, take it inside the customs office with you, then when you're done put it back inside the beavertail and ride over to the next office. That way you can collect all the country specific paperwork in a specific spot. Also under the beavertail there's a special tent pole pocket so you can split your tent into its various components, making it so much easier to pack. The tent pole pocket also works great for a camp chair, fuel bottles, a fishing pole, etc.

There are two things that take some getting used to on this duffle. First, the materials are really thick, which means that rolling/unrolling the roll-top feels a little cumbersome at first if you’re used to thinner kayak drybags or stuff sacks. The materials loosen up with time, have no fear. Second, compared to a top-loader, the double ended roll-top has a narrower throat. So when you’re in your tent, or in your hotel room, sorting through the stuff inside is not as easy as it would be with a top-loader. We make top-loaders too, check out our Scout 30/50 duffle if that’s the way you’re leaning.

Want to protect your gear from thieves? Add our Steelcore Locking Straps. The Backcountry Duffle requires one 6' strap. Mounting instructions can be found in this video.

Connection Strap Note: For pavement and graded road riding, virtually any kind of connection strap will work to attach this duffle to the bike. For rough, ungraded terrain or for long-distance, multi-month trips, we highly recommend the Backcountry Cinch Strap, which was designed specifically for this bag and this kind of travel. Whatever strap you choose, if you will be riding offroad, please avoid bungy cords, stretchable elastic straps, or straps with plastic side-release buckles. Even a simple cam buckle strap (like this one by DaKine) is better than elastic.
