When we first investigated tool storage solutions several years ago, we were initially turned off by the ‘roll,’ even though we were all using them. A tool roll seems so old-school, like something a cowboy would've carried, or a biker gang in the 50s. Surely there's a better, more modern way?
With more research though, we came around. There’s a reason why tool rolls persist. The beauty of a roll versus, say, a bag or box, is that it naturally expands and contracts based on how much stuff is in it, and it conforms to a wide variety of tool shapes and sizes, while still rolling into a tidy package that fits in a stash-spot or external pocket.
With tool rolls, we felt there’d been a ‘race to the bottom’ on price-point and features. There are so many tool rolls already on the market, all with very similar features, and all at the lowest possible prices. Many OEMs even ship a tool roll for free with every bike. So we went a different direction in designing the Fatty and Pinner. We cut zero corners on materials and features, and we hope we created the most awesome tool roll you'll ever own.
Is there another waterproof tool roll out there? If so, we haven't seen it. The Fatty & Pinner come with highly abrasion-proof, welded-seam, waterproof rain covers. Tools are heavy and hard, and they press and vibrate against everything they touch, so the rain cover's gotta' be tough. This one is tough as nails, and it doubles as a trailside parts tray. If you’re riding in the desert and don’t need the raincover, no problem: reduce bulk by leaving the raincover at home and taking only the tool roll itself.
Sliding the roll out of the raincover, you’ll see lots of tool storage pockets, with webbing straps to hold everything. Unlike traditional tool rolls, however, there’s also a large Velcro flap that traps your tools in place, so your tiniest hex key won’t escape somewhere out in the woods. Inside the flap there’s a zippered mesh pocket for tube patches and tire repair. On the outside of the Fatty, there’s three long pockets for tire irons, which are always kind of a hassle to store.
What about those bulky tools that never fit? Things like vice grips and open-ended wrenches? We added two large zipper pockets to accommodate these, plus spark plugs, JB Weld, sockets, Loctite, and all those other things which you always need but can't find, because they’re somewhere in the bottom of your bag. Next to the two large zipper pockets, we added a clear zipper pocket for documents, an air gauge, or anything else you want to tuck away. It even has a conversion table printed on the front, plus a recipe for our favorite trailside drink: the Mosko Mule.
“After searching all over for a tool carrier that can organize big tools and small parts alike, a friend sent me to Mosko. The Fatty is just perfect. Large tools and small, spare parts, and MacGyver gizmos all have a place. The waterproof bag makes it indispensable. It holds a big tool kit and bundles up right. The lash strap loops let me tie it when there’s no room to stow it. One of a kind kit!”
Ive had other tool rolls but this one is built like a tank and keeps my tools organized. The Fatty tool roll has a strong solid roll strap that holds the roll securely no matter what odd size tool is in the roll. I use it with my dual sport motorcyle and also when Im traveling off road or daily commuting in my Jeep Cherokee. I use it more with my Jeep these days because it packs all the essential tools so well. I just grab the roll handle and throw it in the back of the Jeep and go. Its one of my favorite pieces from Mosko Moto. I think I may need to buy another one!
I just received the Fatty tool Roll
Great quality and design. Construction materials very good.
I will fore sure recommend any Mosko product.
Jorge from Uruguay/ South America
It's great, it's fat, it holds tools, and it rolls up - seriously though a very well thought out product with a real quality feel. The included waterproof bag is light but surprisingly robust. I would recommend and would buy again if needed.
