Lightweight Versatility! Tenere 700

I’ve owned the older Back Country panniers, the Reckless 80, and luggage from other manufacturers. Always looking for a lighter / better solution I strayed from Mosko and did find other light weight options. But none of them had the build quality I was used to with Mosko’s offerings. I read a thread in a forum where a fellow mentioned the Scout panniers and I swear I never noticed them before. They are the “Hidden Gem” in the line. I paired these with some Dirt Racks heavy duty pannier racks and I’m right at 20 lbs total. Amazing. If your reading these reviews considering the Scout 25’s don’t think twice grab them. They are a great balance between weight, size, durability, and versatile.

Moskomoto Scout 25 on a 2021 Triumph Tiger 900

Mounted my new Scout 25 bags on my ’21 Tiger 900 that had the Triumph Expedition hard bags & rack (made by Givi) previously installed. It took some remodeling of the rack to mount the Mosko aluminum plate. The upper Triumph nameplate bar with the locking clips for the hard bags and the lower small round knobs had to be removed. Afterwards there were still 2 small sleeves protruding from the lower cross bars had to be removed as well, which was difficult. That left a bare round tube rack to mount the Moskomoto plate. The rest of the installation was simple and the finished product looks great. As it’s the dead of winter up here in snowy northern New England, it will be a few months before I can do a test ride with full bags

PS: I bought the Moskomoto Scout soft bags as the Triumph Expedition hard cases took a good sized chunk out of my left calf just above the top of my Sidi Trail Zero boots on a low speed tip over off road in hard pack gravel. That wound took ~6 months to heal. ;-(

Top option for traveling light.

Loving the Scout 25L Panniers: light, waterproof and durable. I am saving at least 30 lbs. compared to the BMW Vario cases I was using. If you're curious, the Vario top case I replaced with a Saddlemen AP700 Rear Rack Bag

Love these bags!

Decided to get rid of my aluminum panniers and try these bags. I do a lot of off-road riding and wanted something that was safer and easy to access. Very happy with the performance, ease of use and the look! Would strongly recommend. As always, love the build quality of mosko moto products. Will continue to purchase from them in the future

Simple and solid

I just completed my first multi-day ride with these and they worked great! 500 miles of mostly rugged off road riding in western Colorado and eastern Utah. The wettest I've ever seen it. The rain, mud, and creek crossings were crazy. The Scouts performed flawlessly. I laid the bike over once or twice in the mud with no damage to the system. I love how easy it was to pull the dry bag from the bike at the end of the day. Super happy!

Scout 25L Pannier Kit (V2.0)

New for 2022: Updated and upgraded Aluminium Mounting Plate refined from the help and feedback of our customers.

  • Thicker Aluminum plate for added durability: 33% thicker, more than twice as strong!
  • Improved shape and finish process: smooth edges and larger radius corners.

Streamlined, weight-efficient and minimalist, the Scout 25 pannier V2.0 is an entirely unique take on quick-release luggage. We designed it for weight and space-conscious riders who want the benefits of a hard-backed frame pannier - such as easy on/off mounting and a stable connection to the bike - without the extra pounds. The Scout weighs and costs about the same as an old-school saddlebag, with all the advantages of modern soft luggage.

Scout 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 & Hardware section of our website.

For carrying tools and fluids, expanding capacity, or adding a quick-stash spot for snacks and tubes, we offer a separate MOLLE Panel attachment kit that gets sandwiched between the removable drybag and the mounting frame. This is a great place to store your water and extra fuel, or stash a MOLLE-compatible multi-tool, a fixed blade knife, a hatchet, or a spade.

CB500X Customers: We have encountered a few unfortunate heat damage and melting incidents with the Scout 25L Panniers due to the position and angle of the CB500X's exhaust. Aftermarket exhausts have not been proven to solve this issue and we do not recommend the use of Scout 25L Panniers on the CB500X with any pannier rack we know of. 

We set out to design a system that weighs less than the Backcountry 35 - which is built for extreme offroad durability and long distance trips - but preserves the functionality of certain core features, such as a positive attachment to the bike, two layers of crash protection, and an extremely easy on/off mounting system.

There are so many 'over-the-seat' saddlebag systems already on the market, and we didn’t want to design another one of those, so we struck out in a totally different direction. The new Scout 25 firmly attaches to the bike, with a laser-cut aluminum plate that bolts to virtually any pannier rack. A large beavertail harness - made from extremely abrasion-resistant materials like hypalon, ballistic nylon, and polyurethane - connects to the plate, and cinches tight to the bike, holding a removable waterproof drybag in place.

When you reach your destination for the night, simply un-clip the top of the harness and pull out the drybag. A totally new type of quick release. It’s so easy!

The beavertail makes for a handy quick-stash spot for wet & dirty items, and it also protects the drybag in a fall. You get all the benefits of two-layer crash protection, plus the ability to replace damaged parts as components without replacing an entire bag. We eliminated all unnecessary material to keep the Scout’s weight as low as possible. It weighs a tiny bit more than traditional over-the-seat systems (usually a pound or two) due to the aluminum backing and PE armor, but it’s also a whole lot more durable, and so much easier to use.

The Scout’s 100% waterproof welded-seam drybags feature crushable backpack straps, so they can serve double-duty as airline carry-on or emergency hike-out bags. The backpack straps are also handy for getting everything up to your room in a single trip. Each drybag has a tough armor backing, which not only helps it retain its shape, but also protects drybag from abrading on the bike and mounting hardware. The drybags also have a water-resistant front zippered pocket.

With the drybags removed, the empty harness can be cinched tight to the bike, so it won’t flap around in the wind. If you’re out & about and find yourself in need of a handy spot to tuck a small bag, jacket, or groceries, they work perfectly for that as well.
