We spent two+ years developing the Hood, testing every type of waterproof closure we could find. We needed something simple and strong enough for a tank bag, that will continue working even after thousands of uses in dusty, abusive conditions. We even spent 6 months experimenting with kayak hatches. The hatches turned out to be a bit of a rabbit hole, but they gave us the idea for the Hood.
The Hood achieves it’s waterproofing through a welded-seam, waterproof clamshell lid (we call it a ‘hood’) that rests on an equally waterproof, welded-seam base. The hood pushes against a strip of piping that runs 360 degrees around the base. There’s a rain gutter just below the piping that stops any water that tries to work its way up the sides. We even tested it with a pressure washer at the car wash, and everything inside stayed bone-dry!
The inside of the Hood features a large, open main compartment, with two removable sewn-seam wallets for things like cables, headphones, batteries, and credit cards. There’s a charging cable and headphone pass-through port, so you can connect your phone and electronic accessories directly to the battery.
On the top of the Hood you’ll find plenty of MOLLE webbing, which fits the included MOLLE compatible waterproof map pocket. If you don’t need the map pocket, the MOLLE webbing also works great for a cell phone case, multi tool, or first aid kit instead.
The first person to take a selfie of the Hood on their bike in front of Mt. Hood while wearing a Hoodie gets a free Mosko tee!
Spot on, ideal size for my 790 doesn't get in the way
Hood Tank Bag
I installed this on the bike.. didn't ride yet because of damn winter, but on a 800GS this fits perfectly. It replaced a Giant Loop Fandango pro and I'm 100% satisfied with the upgrade.. No zippers.. fully waterproof, well built... another quality MM product on my bike!
just bought your 100% waterproof tank bag. well thought out and seems made well. been on 2 rides so far in Pennsylvania this winter. will have to wait and see how it holds up over the course of a couple years. that's how long my last one did. I ride a BMW F800 and the bag could be a little wider. say the width of the map add on bag. but the height is perfect. maybe width will be ok but something to think about. thanks.
The opening system is extremely well though and it works perfectly with one hand (really unique on the market). Plus, having no zip, it will never fail because of mud or dust. So, PLEASE Mosko, consider a tail bag with this system!!!
Overall, this tankbag is very well made. It fits the 790 Adventure R - and probably most bikes - perfectly. Good size and good shape (it won't bother you standing up, and you can still put a lot inside).
For those who own the 690 or 701: keep me mind the big rear buckles will end up against the inside your thighs, which is not ideal (this is only because the bike has no front tank). That could be easily changed (Mosko?).
Last, I think the organizers are too bulky and take too much space in the main compartment.
That being said, WELL DONE MOSKO TEAM!
