We spent two+ years developing the Hood, testing every type of waterproof closure we could find. We needed something simple and strong enough for a tank bag, that will continue working even after thousands of uses in dusty, abusive conditions. We even spent 6 months experimenting with kayak hatches. The hatches turned out to be a bit of a rabbit hole, but they gave us the idea for the Hood.
The Hood achieves it’s waterproofing through a welded-seam, waterproof clamshell lid (we call it a ‘hood’) that rests on an equally waterproof, welded-seam base. The hood pushes against a strip of piping that runs 360 degrees around the base. There’s a rain gutter just below the piping that stops any water that tries to work its way up the sides. We even tested it with a pressure washer at the car wash, and everything inside stayed bone-dry!
The inside of the Hood features a large, open main compartment, with two removable sewn-seam wallets for things like cables, headphones, batteries, and credit cards. There’s a charging cable and headphone pass-through port, so you can connect your phone and electronic accessories directly to the battery.
On the top of the Hood you’ll find plenty of MOLLE webbing, which fits the included MOLLE compatible waterproof map pocket. If you don’t need the map pocket, the MOLLE webbing also works great for a cell phone case, multi tool, or first aid kit instead.
The first person to take a selfie of the Hood on their bike in front of Mt. Hood while wearing a Hoodie gets a free Mosko tee!

Exactly what I was looking for. Not too big, not too small. Buckle system is great. Very clever design. Would definitely recommend it to anyone...
Great tank bag! Perfect size for most riders, You can fit way more stuff in here than what it appears. I also rode 10 hours a in torrential downpour and everything in the bag was dry as can be. Great product.
I ordered the Mosko Moto Hood Tank Bag a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t be happier with that choice. It’s the perfect size for this bike. Also, about a week after I got the Hood bag, I ordered the 2L Molle Pouch just in case I need little extra space. I like the concept of the molle stick fasteners. Now I can fasten the 2L pouch or the map pocket. I’m sure before I take any substantial trips, I will add a few more pieces as well. Thanks for making a great line of products!
Good quality bag, only two complaints are the price and the metal buckles are right where my knees squeeze the bike. Love the no zipper design.
Fits like it was made for it. At first look this bag I thought not enough bling. I have a Mosko Nomad on my Africa Twin. Way Wrong. This is a no non sense don't worry about it bag. Even standing and forward there is room for the boys to find the CG on the bike.
