Nomax Tank Bag

I started using Mosko Moto gear after a friend had borrowed a set of their luggage on a Baja ride and I witnessed it's Quality. Since that time I have purchased many of their products and am impressed with each item I use. You can tell the creators actually use their products. The Nomax bag is a perfect size tank bag for me, I use it as an airport backpack and carry on when flying to and from a ride. All I can say is "Yes" buy it and you wont be sorry.

Nomax tank bag-backpack

Very well thought out pack, I can not believe how much this pack can hold! It is so well made you can keep stuffing it and it keeps taking it. Another nice thing is you can put all your valuables in it when you get were your going take it with you when it’s time to leave in seconds clips back on.

bomb proof construction, flexible functionality, everything I expected and more!

I've had both the 30 L and 40 L backcountry duffles for a couple of years now and they are simply outstanding in their construction and performance, heavier than many options out there but 'knowing' I will not tear them, have leak issues or any other problems is well worth the extra weight and cash involved.

Having had such a great experience with these two bags Which have seen all sorts of dirt, mud, driving rain and rock falls, I decided to treat myself to the most expensive (per cubic inch of usable space) bag I could ever imagine buying. The Nomax tank bag is everything I expected and more!

I recently took the larger of my duffles and this new tank bag on a 5000+ mile trip which included desert, dirt trails, deep sand washes, loose baby heads on mountainsides and numerous falls (we all do it, stop with the bullshit captain ego moto). Both bags, aside from the 'patina' of dust and dirt are essentially brand new in their appearance. This is saying something as I took a few spills off road while wearing the pack on my back to allow greater movement on the pegs and landed on the pack each time, the bladder held up nicely and didn't even leak after one occasion where my full weight came down on it, and the bag shows zero evidence that the fall even happened.

One of my biggest reasons for choosing the Nomax was to enable me to use it as a day hike bag in addition to on the bike. It performed awesomely on Angels Landing!

If I were making one request for a future version it would only be to have the option for adaptability/expandability in a couple of larger compartments versus the countless pockets, but this is only because I'm more of a dump it (camera, keys, snacks etc...) in any available space kind of guy.

I am 100% sold on the quality products these guys at MM have and a nice bonus is having met a few of them at one of the IMS shows it's nice to know they really are genuinely caring riders who are keen to learn from all riders experiences in developing their stuff.

Keep smashing out amazing kit MM, I love it!!!

Nomax Tank Bag

Inspired by the hydration packs we use for backcountry skiing and mountain biking, we set out to design a completely different kind of tank bag. The newly updated and renamed ‘Nomax’ (formerly known as ‘Nomad’) comes with a 2L hydration reservoir, and tons of storage for all those little things you used to throw in a tank bag and promptly lose. Best of all, it unclips from the bike quickly and easily and transforms into a fully functional backpack.

*Check out our Second Bike Harness page to make your Nomax Tank Bag easily interchangeable between multiple bikes. 

After talking to hundreds of riders around the world, and combining that input with our own personal wants and needs, we decided that, rather than start with a traditional 'toaster' shape, we would divide the Nomax's space into six vertical layers, each with its own specific mission. We compiled a massive list of the things people store in their tank bags and found the majority of the items on the list were very small. A vertical layout maximizes the utilization of space without making the bag too tall.

The top layer of the Nomax features three columns of MOLLE webbing (made from die cut Hypalon), which can be used to mount our rain-proof MOLLE Map Pocket, or other MOLLE-compatible items like our Navigator Cell Phone Pocket. It's also a great place to store a MOLLE-compatible multi-tool, fixed blade knife, or protective cell phone holder. MOLLE webbing enables you to customize the rider-facing top layer of the Nomax to suit your individual travel style. Some riders like a map pocket, some don’t.

Below the MOLLE webbing, the next layer is an expandable beavertail. If you already have some of our other bags, you know how handy a beavertail can be. On the Nomax, the beavertail serves as a quick-stash spot for things like sunglasses, gloves, snacks, or even a small DSLR camera. If you use it for your DSLR, we provided webbing loops on the beavertail side bellows, so you can clip the D-rings on your camera case directly to the bag. Inside the beavertail we added a pocket for an InReach or SPOT, and there's a gated clip to hold your GPS/camera/beacon lanyards so nothing tumbles out if your bike goes down.

The third layer zips back into your lap, and is specifically designed for small-item organization: things like charging cables, pens, change, batteries, earplugs, chapstick, passport, and bike documents. There are six mesh pockets, three elastic cable holders, two pen holders, and a fleece-lined glasses pocket. No more tangled soup of miscellaneous items floating around in the bottom of your tank bag, everything has a home.

The fourth layer is a large open compartment, featuring plenty of space for bulkier items like extra maps, spare gloves, wallet, CCW, and food. There are two large mesh pockets (one with side-walls and one flat), which are available if you need them, but compress out of the way if you don't. Also, for contact lens wearers, on the foam-reinforced sidewall there's a removable lens case holder, which can be rotated to keep the cases vertical depending on the orientation of the bag.

Under the main compartment, accessible from a pocket at the top of the bag, there's a long, flat pocket that accommodates a 2L hydration reservoir, which is included with the bag. In warmer climates and on long distance trips, you can relocate the weight of your drinking water from your backpack to the tank. If you'd rather keep the Nomax as tight as possible to the bike, and/or if you'd like to maximize space in the main compartment, you can remove the reservoir and store it elsewhere on the bike.

The sixth and final layer of the Nomax houses a quick-stash spot for two sewn-on, crushable backpack straps. Simply unclip the Nomax from the bike, pull out the backpack straps, clip them to the D-rings at the bottom of the bag, and the Nomax converts into a fully functioning hydration pack. The side straps, which normally connect the Nomax to the bike, now become your waist strap. We use these backpack straps on dualsport trips all the time, from morning hikes to running errands around town. And the best part is that the Nomax doesn't feel like a 'tank bag on your back.' It looks, feels, and functions like a normal backpack.

The Nomax includes a waterproof rain cover, with a welded-seam top panel and sealed seams on the side, to keep your belongings dry in a heavy downpour. There's a stash-spot for the rain cover on the top of the bag, and a leash so it doesn't get lost. Also, hidden away in two of the zipper pulls, you’ll find a SIM card tool and storage compartment and a safety whistle for emergencies.

After years of design and development work, plus tons of real world input from the riding community and from our own trips, we've tried our best to design the ultimate adventure touring tank bag. We hope you like it!

Notes:

- Due to the Nomax's long torso, it may not fit on smaller dualsport bikes or bikes without a front gas tank

- We specifically designed the Nomax to sit much farther forward on the bike than a typical tank bag. It's not uncommon for the top of the bag to extend over the handlebars on some bikes. We recommend rigging it as far forward as possible.

- The Nomax expands & contracts as needed. If you prefer a tight fitting tank bag with a low profile, remove the hydration reservoir and map pocket, and cinch it down tight to the bike

- For more capacity, take full advantage of the beavertail

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 versatile and user friendly, this makes my rides better in every way. Ease of access for my camera, spare gloves, small tools, wallet, etc... Does everything that I wanted a tank bag to do and then other things I didn't even know I needed. I can't go back to anything else, I'm too spoiled now.”

– Nathaniel, 2018
