We set out to design a system that weighs less than the Backcountry 35 - which is built for extreme offroad durability and long distance trips - but preserves the functionality of certain core features, such as a positive attachment to the bike, two layers of crash protection, and an extremely easy on/off mounting system.
There are so many 'over-the-seat' saddlebag systems already on the market, and we didn’t want to design another one of those, so we struck out in a totally different direction. The new Scout 25 firmly attaches to the bike, with a laser-cut aluminum plate that bolts to virtually any pannier rack. A large beavertail harness - made from extremely abrasion-resistant materials like hypalon, ballistic nylon, and polyurethane - connects to the plate, and cinches tight to the bike, holding a removable waterproof drybag in place.
When you reach your destination for the night, simply un-clip the top of the harness and pull out the drybag. A totally new type of quick release. It’s so easy!
The beavertail makes for a handy quick-stash spot for wet & dirty items, and it also protects the drybag in a fall. You get all the benefits of two-layer crash protection, plus the ability to replace damaged parts as components without replacing an entire bag. We eliminated all unnecessary material to keep the Scout’s weight as low as possible. It weighs a tiny bit more than traditional over-the-seat systems (usually a pound or two) due to the aluminum backing and PE armor, but it’s also a whole lot more durable, and so much easier to use.
The Scout’s 100% waterproof welded-seam drybags feature crushable backpack straps, so they can serve double-duty as airline carry-on or emergency hike-out bags. The backpack straps are also handy for getting everything up to your room in a single trip. Each drybag has a tough armor backing, which not only helps it retain its shape, but also protects drybag from abrading on the bike and mounting hardware. The drybags also have a water-resistant front zippered pocket.
For carrying tools and fluids, expanding capacity, or adding a quick-stash spot for snacks and tubes, we offer an optional MOLLE attachment kit that gets sandwiched between the removable drybag and the mounting frame. This is a great place to store your water and extra fuel, or stash a MOLLE compatible multi-tool, a fixed blade knife, a hatchet, or a spade.
With the drybags removed, the empty harness can be cinched tight to the bike, so it won’t flap around in the wind. If you’re out & about and find yourself in need of a handy spot to tuck a small bag, jacket, or groceries, they work perfect for that as well.

Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1200GSA or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Hardware & Parts' section of our site, or email us with questions.
This kit includes 2 side pannier bags, and all the hardware you need to install on your bike.

“100% pleased with the Scout paniers! These fit my 690 Enduro great. They compress nice and tight, adapting to various load volumes just way I hoped they would. Quality is top shelf.”
I sought the V2 because of the mounting system which appeared to be lighter and just as strong as the previous version. It is. Easy to put on and take off. Bags themselves are easy to remove when destination reached but only tested in one soft drop in the dirt and I can't really see where that hit. Pretty tough. Good stuff.
The 1st review was after the install. Now the system has seen CO, NM, AZ, CA, NV, OR, ID, UT. Great sytem. Easy to adjust for increasing or drecreasing the load. Nothing has gotten wet. Once the straps are set they dont slip. Couldnt be happier.
I purchased the Scout 25 system to mount on a Globetrottin rack for my KTM 500 EXC. The system works like a charm. Couldn’t be more pleased!!!
Having switched from metal box panniers these are proving to be a very robust alternative. I love the weight savings and expandable size. These also take impact very well as they should being designed for off-road use. 6k miles in and still loving these. I would highly recommend Mosko.
