Scout 25L Duffle
The Scout 25 is a welded-seam roll-top drybag designed to be mounted on a rear luggage rack or as a topper for hard-sided panniers and/or top boxes. It also converts into a comfortable backpack, complete with padded shoulder straps, a waist belt, and a sternum strap. The backpack straps are handy if you breakdown and need to hike out, or when navigating an airport or border crossing on fly-to-ride trips. They're also handy when you need to get all your gear to an upstairs hotel room in a single trip. The backpack straps stash flat in an external pocket, and clip to two d-rings on the bottom of the bag.
The Scout 25 Duffle includes a unique beavertail with a waterproof map pocket on one side and 5 columns of MOLLE webbing on the other, so you can expand and customize this bag with an assortment of optional MOLLE accessories like fuel bottle holders or a hydration sleeve. The beavertail also provides a convenient place to tuck a jacket during the day, or to store wet/dirty things like a rainfly, tarp, or towel.
The Scout 25 has side cinch strap pass-throughs (we recommend our Backcountry Cinch Strap) so you don't have to worry about your bag squeezing out to the side of the bike in bumpy terrain. There's an internal stiffener to prevent it from drooping over the side of your bike and burning on the exhaust. The Scout includes a comfortable, padded shoulder strap that stashes away under the beavertail when it's not in use. There are two comfortable, padded carry handles at the ends of the bag, and two webbing handles on the side.
The Scout Duffle also includes a 20L seam-sealed Drysak, so you can keep dirty/damp clothing, shoes, and other items separate from the rest of your clean/dry belongings. It also has two internal end-pockets with velcro flap closures for storing small items like a headlamp or toothbrush.

I am from Singapore and ride to Malaysia for weekend. We have tropical weather and this Scout 25L hold up well on my BMW F850 GS, It sit firmly & perfectly, the duffle have enough room necessary for the weekend. Well design and love it, it will last a longtime. A well deserve 6 stars !
Santa had a great idea; why not gift me a new bag for the daily commute? The old Moto Centric bag was showing signs of wear and tear after 5 years of almost daily use - basically all the zippers were kaputt. The Mosko Moto Scout 25 duffle seemed a logical replacement to carry my notebook computer and lunch containers to and from work. There is room for other items - e.g. a stop at the store. The Scout duffle is a top load design and fully water proof, no zippers to break. Since we finally have some rain in CA I can attest that the bag is tight. The construction looks very solid and I have high hopes for the duffle's durability. Also find the velcro taps on the straps an excellent feature; no loose strap ends to worry about.
I also have the 4L MOLLE pouch in case more storage room is required for a short weekend ride.
After I used it for a bit here are two suggestions to improve the flexibility even further. (1) At current the beaver tail needs to be on the bag - unless you want to pull the straps out. If the male/female connectors would be alternated between the straps and beaver tail one could close the straps without having to remove them. You could still flip it over to either of the two sides (MOLLE/map pouch). (2) Add a carrying handle to one of the sides. Currently there is a handle at each end, but this means you carry the bag with the long dimension in the vertical; the latter can be cumbersome for carrying as well as loading on the bike rack.
Eying a Backcountry 40L for the yearly longer adventure ride.
Keep great gear coming our way.
I bought a pair of Scout 25 Duffles for my 2016 R1200GSA. They replaced a 50 liter duffle strapped across the pillion seat. Clearing that area now allows me to move further back when descending while standing on the pegs. They saw their first use attending the Oct '18 GS Giants' Ribfest and I was very pleased. I had plenty of room to carry my sleeping pad, sleeping bag and all the other stuff I bring when camping. Great quality gear that easily strapped to the lids of my panniers. I'll be looking to Mosko Moto for any future motorcycle luggage needs!
As with all other Items I have purchased from Mosko, the 25l duffle is a great piece of gear. bulletproof materials, simple but great design and at a decent price.
plan to use this as a tail bag/helmet bag for an upcoming trip to South America,and should work great
I picked up the Scout 25 because I wanted a little something extra where I could place my essentials or overflow gear. I have the Backcountry 40L backpack and sometimes that isn't quite enough or I may just want to separate my gear differently. My thought was that I could easily tuck it under the beavertail area of the BC40 and essentially have a 65L setup that, in a pinch, I can carry like a single backpack. BTW, it works well that way. Love the beavertail feature in the BC40L.
Anyway, back to the Scout... Like the other Mosko Moto gear I have, this is a quality piece. You can probably find a less expensive 25L drybag, but I doubt you will find a better one. Certainly not if you compare feature to feature.
I have no doubt this bag will stand up to years of use. So many little features make a huge difference. The MOLLE/clear clip on panel is a very nice feature and allows you to customize this setup even more. Little things like that are why I stick with Mosko for my bike luggage.
