The Scout 60 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 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 backpack straps are handy if you breakdown in the middle of nowhere and need to hike out, or when navigating an airport or border crossing on fly-to-ride trips. They're also handy if you need to get 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 60 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 four comfortable, padded carry handles.
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.

“Just back from a Yukon roadie of 6400 kms return to the lower mainland BC. Bought the Scout 60L to keep my camping sleep kit and clothes dry ... after a lot of kms in significant rain, mud, rough housing around a camp site this bag has delivered no issues at all. Definitely worth the investment. Only thing that would make it more awesomer would be if it were self cleaning!”
Just used it for a long weekend camp back roads ride.
All my camp gear went in there with room to spare.
Went through torrentIl downpours and everything stayed dry ans it looks great.
Love the map holder / moly Attachment.
I can use either sode up and also use it to hold down a wet towel ( from an impromtu jump in a nearby lake) or jacket when its technoca and too hot for heavy gear.
Im pretty happy overall with all my mosko products:
Nomad tank bag, scout60l and the new phone holder - for once my iphone doesn't over heat!
Big fan- thanks
And love the live casts during the covid downtime
Got all my camp gear into the bag. Secure tie down system. Worked great
I just finished a week on the road with the Scout 60L Duffle, and I had wanted to give your team some feedback and maybe get some instruction/direction on how to proceed... until I found out this bag has been discontinued. Oh well, for what it's worth, and since you asked ...
This product's design is phenomenal, perfect for my application, although in hindsight, said application may have been better served by running two parallel tail bags for a total of about the same amount of storage space...get to that in a minute…
My ride is a 2014 Suzuki GSX 1300R, aka Hayabusa, and I ran that ride with the Scout 60L strapped to the pillion in a transverse orientation for about 1600 mi over 7 days. It made for a tall package, but the trapezoidal (for lack of a better descript) design-shape of the Scout supports this config. This position allowed me enough room up front in the pilot seat; an inline setup did not, or left a section of the bag overhanging too far off the rear of the bike. But I expected this: 60L is a LOT of room! I was still able to lane-split, which was my only criteria as far as width of load was concerned (lane-splitting is legal in CA, thankfully).
In fact, despite the tall profile of a fully-stuffed Scout 60L, the bike remained as nimble as ever, both in lane splitting moments as well as the variety of turbulent terrain offered by a good deal of the roads on my journey (Los Angeles, CA area to Eureka, CA area – and back again). In short, the duffle felt like it belonged on the back of the bike. Was it the nature of the bike, or the inherent design of the duffle? In my 40+ yrs of riding experience, it’s usually a combination. What is sought is a synergy of the two components, and I will state here that the Mosko Scout 60L Duffle created a synergistic riding experience. Job well done, Mosko!
I have one suggestion, a minor issue, and one hack I’d like to share:
Suggestion: it appears as though the duffle is meant to be secured in an inline fashion, as evidenced by the plastic tie-down loops at one end, and the adjustable web-buckle loop on the other end (lengthwise). Positioning the bag across the seat (transverse) rendered these two otherwise neat features useless to me. The tie downs just dangled freely (no issue) while the web-loop needed to be threaded up, over and through the beaver-tail loops and buckled on top of the beaver-tail in order to ensure it didn’t work its way loose and head for the chain/sprocket (again, no issue in this config). Had I not needed all 60 liters of the offered space, I would have kept the bag inline. But surely, it was not Mosko Moto’s intent that the bag be oriented strictly inline, was it?? Apparently not, and my experience is that proof. Had this bag not been discontinued, I would have suggested Mosko re-think the design on this particular unit to encourage a greater range of duffle orientation when attaching the product to a bike … yes, even a Hayabusa.
Issue: Perhaps as a result of how I chose to secure the duffle to the bike’s hardpoints, the stitching of two of the integrated web-points on the bag ripped out of the duffle within the first 6 hours of use. I did send an email to Mosko asking how they suggest I proceed in repairing these rip-outs - the reply from Mosko was no answer, just that the bag had been discontinued. Not much help, but such is the fate of all discontinued duffles (and otherwise excited owners) all over the world, I would imagine. The webbing at point of damage appears to be integrated into the waterproofing layers of the bag, and I am hesitant to attempt a DIY fix that might end up compromising said waterproofing. Yes, it is possible my riding adventures actually exceeded the duffle's capabilities, but I choose to doubt that. A reply from Mosko containing thoughts/suggestions on how to proceed with repair would have been greatly appreciated, and certainly would have raised the star-count of this review.
Hack: The duffle’s material is slick rather than sticky, and the Hayabusa’s pillion is slick rather than sticky. Together, this made for a load that tended to shift forward on the bike (but not backward, due to the bike’s grabrail at the rear of the pillion) - despite a rather sophisticated tie-down process. In future applications, I will be placing rubber grip-pads (or a sheet of similar material) between the pillion and the duffle, in order to minimize the duffle’s tendency to shift (usually under hard braking, but a decent number of potholes – the ones I simply could not avoid! – achieved the same effect).
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the product; it performed admirably and, as stated earlier, enhanced my riding experience, in the sense that it did not interfere with the journey, if you get my meaning. The only change I might make in the future is to attempt to run a pair of the Backcountry duffles (30 or 40L), or maybe a combination of the Scout 30 with one of the Backcountry duffles. This would redu...
At first i thought i made a mistake because it was too big but it's actually a perfect size.
It's the trusted Mosko Moto quality and when used for only 60% you can still fold it up but when you need a bit extra space you have there.
It fit's in the side space of a tunnel-tent and because it's waterproof the contents witch you want to stow away for the night stay perfectly dry.
This is an excellent bag after a 1000 mile, 3 day camping trip. Rode through hours of rain and all contents of this duffel stayed dry. I also purchased the Mosko straps, which are high quality items.
