Scout 25L Pannier Kit (V2.0)
Introducing the Scout 25 Pannier System Version 2.0!
Streamlined, weight-efficient, and minimalist, the Scout 25 pannier V2.0 is an entirely new take on quick-release soft luggage. We wanted 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.

Recently received my Scout 25 pannier kit from Mosko Moto. I waited a long time for it to come back in stock so I could actually order them (not their fault, just regular challenges faced by a small company) but it was well worth the wait. Awesome build quality, and you can tell everyone who played a role in the design of the panniers is probabaly a very serious rider themselves. It’s well constructed and has likely evolved from a basic idea to something that fills a void in whats currently available for rough travel on dual sport bikes. It’s overbuilt and perfect for trips on my Husqvarna 701. Looking forward to using them on my planned BCDR / Pacific Coast trips in 2019.
Also got the fatty tool roll in the same order, same impression, perfection in design and very purposeful.
This is just another beaming review. They are still new, but the materials are nothing short of amazing. I have several pieces of MM gear, and it all is quality "stuff". Looks and feels like it should last for years and survive almost anything.
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. Worth the wait for sure.
I ordered the Scout5L paniers for my Moto-guzzi Stornello and after 4800 miles from Los Angeles to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I can say the bag was an excellent purchase. Bag, because my Stornello Scrambler carries only one bag. The other one I sold to my buddy in AZ, with a Stornello. This bag looks great on Beverly Hills streets, tolerated 118F he in Ballarat Death Valley, took hits on Shafer Road Utah, climbed to 14130ft at Mt. Evans and got washed in Shady Valley Tennessee. Great bag, always water tight and looks good too. Very happy with the purchase. MABCDR next with this one.
Great panniers. The beaver tail (i think thats what theyre called) bag combo is excellently designed. I can pull the bags easily when I get to camp or remove them when im back at home. if i commute to work with the bike my backpack fits easily in one beavertail and the other not in use flips over and cinches down nicely.
In one bag I had a stuff like a spare tube, and kitchen items (jetboiler/dryfood/water/coffee+mug/bowl/steripen/etc.). In the other bag I had things like clothes, tools, fishing stuff. I placed a duffel over the top of the back of the bike to supplement the scouts that had my tent, thermarest, sleeping bag, thermal/rain layers, and a flyrod.
Pretty excited about the design and build quality of Mosko gear. I will most certainly be swaping out the north face for a waterproof scout 60 duffel when they become available. Also on my radar is the reckless 10 when that comes out for my dirtbike.
