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!”
Ditched the stock toll roll up that came with the bike. Been building my own adding all the needed tools required for field repair. Drilled holes on some tools to lighten the weight and modified some Amazon accessories like aluminum socket strip holders by cutting the lengths down. Tried the beverage recipe and was quenching ( great, now wife is hooked thank you! ). Made a tool list from web site for my model and will laminate a copy for the kit. Manual fits well inside tool roll nicely. The dry bag will not be used for the kit as it’s too difficult to get the bag out once in, so the tent rain fly will go in that next time packing due to moisture if wet...nice bonus thank you!
Look forward to the tank bag the wife is getting for my Christmas gift ( shh, it’s in my box to order ). Thanks Santa!
Great products and very ingenious!
Fatty Tool Roll
I’m a motor-Tech at a relatively small company and a couple international customers came in for a tour and had Mosko Bags, Between the quality and the sheer amount of storage space I knew I had to check them out. The Fatty tool roll meets all my needs to constantly carry as many tools possible. Layout is excellent and I know it will last a VERY long time, Worth every penny hands down. Will be back when I need more luggage for the Tenere!
Very easy to use and strong enough to carry all the tools.
It is well built good design tool wrap
One thing I don’t like is waterproof whcih is big matter to make decision to this. So wrap it self isn’t waterproof. It comes with waterproof pouch that you put yout tool wrap in there but size of waterproof bag and mouth are just not big enough. If yoh put fair amount of tool on wrap and it will fatth wrap as name. And it is almost impossible to put in waterproof pouch in correct way. Other than that great tool wrap. Bit pricey that waterproof option I can’t really use
