Loving My Backcountry Panniers

I’m very impressed with the quality of this product. They were easy to mount and I’m looking forward to my first Moto-camping trip of 2021.

Poor instructions

The product seems to be top notch, however. I had to Google search and go to YouTube to understand how to attach the two 5l exterior bags to the main bag. I have seen several videos and remember the Molly straps with the plastic straps but couldn't find them in the kit. After a few hours I realized they are bolted onto the bags. May I suggest some old fashioned instructions on paper be placed with every order. This gear is VERY expensive and I was very disappointed and more frustrated trying to figure out how to get everything attached with little to almost no instructions in the package. This gear is being ordered by people that are middle aged in general and who are not always tech savvy. Paper instructions should be added espically at the outrageous prices that people are paying. I did read prior to purchasing that the mounting/build instructions were poor but didn't pay much attention to it. It was after trying to figure out how to install/build that I remembered this. Paper instructions, how to mount, build and cleaning recommendations.

Pannier Rack & Backcountry Offset Pannier Kit (V2.1)

I purchased the pannier rack first, excellent quality, easy install and great price compared to others on the market. I choose this rack over others as it is steel and easily repairable when I eventually crash and bend or break it!
A short time later I purchased the Backcountry offset pannier kit. The quality is outstanding and super easy install to the rack. The attention to detail in the construction, stitching, straps etc. is very well thought out and versatile. I am impressed with the volume in the bags and the fact that the entire interior is within one dry bag. I also added the two pocket option which works great for fuel cans, water bottles etc.
Highly recommended!!

Backcountry Offset Pannier Kit (V2.1)

I could not be happier with my new Backcountry Pannier Kit (V2.1). The quality is amazing. The attention to detail is great, and the customer service and postage was friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend Mosko Moto gear.
Thank you.

Best panniers Period!

Haven’t put them through a full torture test yet. But!!! Where to start. Extremely simple to mount to pannier racks. Once mounted quick on and off the bike. They are over built and extremely well thought out. Been down twice on gravel and still look new. One of the falls would have dented most aluminum cases. Like all MM gear you can’t go wrong.

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.

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 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.”
