Great customer service backed by a top shelf product

Been trying to score a set of Backcountry panniers for a while, with many questioned emailed to Mosko, all of which were answered promptly and with a lot of detail. But the products are so good everyone wants them and they’re always out of stock :( Finally saw my chance recently and jumped online to score a set. They arrived (on the other side of the world) quickly and after not much head scratching I had them installed.

They quality is everything people say. Not a stitch out of place and designed for excellent functionality.

I’ve yet to give them a workout beyond using them for the shopping run, but so far I’m a very satisfied customer. The only thing Mosko couldn’t help me with was figuring out how to win the argument with my family about needing a third motorbike……

Awesome company putting out awesome gear!

First, the service I received was great. I had a mishap while entering my shipping address and transposed a couple digits. I did not notice the error until after it was finalized. However, after contacting their service reps the error was noted and I was assured it would be straightened out.
I never received a shipping confirmation, the 35L Backcountry's arrived the next day. After learning that they're located in White Salmon, WA. , I'm guessing that someone might've driven them the two and a half hours to make sure I got them. This is just a hunch, based on the lack of a shipping confirmation.
As far as the gear... The 35L Backcountry's are just what I was looking for. The quality is very good.
On the first day I had them mounted up, I poached some local MTB sigletrack. Needless to say the mounting system and general quality was truly tested. The mounting was solid and the bags themselves, showed little indication of the encounters with various trail side trees, bushes and stumps they had been in contact with...
Overall the best soft gear of the market. After nearly a month of daily offroad abuse they barely look broken in.
Unfortunately nothing can stand up to a sharp knife, and some lowlife slashed the face of one my bags just above the Beaver tail last week... I just slapped a length of Gorilla tape across the top of both bags to make them look the same and continue to use them daily.
Very happy with Mosko Moto and their gear.

I’ve got the 40L duffel and the 25L panniers. Couldn’t be happier. Mosko is easily the best gear I’ve ever seen.

Backcountry 35L 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.

The standard configuration of this kit includes two 30L bags and two 5L Aux Pox pockets (one on each bag), for 70L of total capacity. Additional or No Aux Pox options are also available, see the variant options below. 

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.

*Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1250GSA, R1200GSA, 850GSA, or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Racks + Adapters' section of our site, or email us with questions.

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, 850GSA, 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.”

– Anthony Fry, 2018
