The Backcountry Pannier is our flagship product, designed for long-distance adventure touring, hardcore enduro-style riding, and camping from your bike. This kit includes one 35L bag system and one 25L bag system, to accommodate your bike's exhaust offset.
The standard configuration of this kit includes one 30L pannier with one 5L Aux Pox auxiliary pocket + one 21L pannier with one 4L Aux Pox auxiliary pocket, for 60L of total capacity. Four Aux Pox or No Aux Pox options are also available, see the variant options above.
With bomb-proof construction and heavy-duty materials, these bags can really take a beating. Our quick-mount wedge system makes it easy to take the panniers on/off the bike so you can store them in your tent or have them by the fire without wrestling with straps. Our new proprietary ‘Speed-Pin’ latch ensures that the mounting system is always engaged.
This is the system for long-distance travelers and people living off their bikes. Guides, instructors, and RTW riders: this system was designed for you.

*Sold as a pair! Just add a bike-specific rack and you are ready to rumble.
*Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1250GSA, R1200GSA, 850GSA, or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Racks + Adapters' section of our site, or email us with questions.
We created the Backcountry Pannier because we were tired of over-the-seat soft panniers that flop around in rough terrain, have no external pockets or stash spots, disintegrate after a couple crashes, and are a total pain in the ass to get on and off the bike. We wanted something like a backpacking frame pack, but that mounts on your bike, and that stays connected to the bike and stays waterproof no matter how many times you lay the bike down.
The Backcountry's are super easy to click on and off the bike, and because the waterproofing is accomplished inside the bag (thanks to the two-bag system), minor external crashes and scuffs won’t faze your panniers at all. Thanks to the thick, welded seam internal liner, you’re also protected from internal abrasion: for example tools, or a camp stove, or some other hard piece of gear vibrating and rubbing against the inner surface over a long period of time.
Backcountry panniers will mount seamlessly on most OEM and aftermarket pannier rack systems. If you don't already have racks, we recommend Outback Motortek Standard Frame pannier racks, available in the Racks & Adapters section of our website.
Rolling Updates to Version 2.1:
Want to protect your panniers and gear from thieves? Add our Compact or Heavy Duty ADV Locks, which store conveniently in the pouch on the back of the beavertail, and integrate with the aluminum Locking Bar on top of the pannier to both a) lock the bag to the bike and b) lock the bag closed.
Backcountry Weight Note: The Backcountry is heavier than the Scouts, and it’s also heavier than a traditional over-the-seat saddlebag. What you get for that weight is bomb-proof construction and materials, a completely stable mounting system (no flopping), and lots of stash spots. Lighter is not always better if it comes at the price of functionality or durability. If weight is your primary concern but you want to stick with a rack system, check out the Scout 25L Panniers. If you’re really serious about weight, take off your racks (shaving 8-10 pounds off the bike) and get a Reckless 80L instead.
Wedge-Mount Compatibility Note: In July 2016, we switched the backcountry pannier wedge and frame from machined HDPE to molded glass-filled nylon. The new wedge/frame are not compatible with the old version. To determine which wedge/frame you have, check on the back of the wedge. If it is flat & smooth, that's HDPE. If it has an inset honeycomb pattern, that's molded nylon. We have extra wedges and frames of both materials in stock available for order by special request.
Cutout Pannier Rack Note: Bikes with stock racks and a pannier exhaust cutout (like the R1250GSA, R1200GSA, 850GSA, or F800GSA for example) require an additional adapter. Check the 'Hardware & Parts' section of our site, or email us with questions.

Bag Care Pointers:
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 far these are hands down the best Panniers I've ever owned. Like most of us riders, I researched every option possible. Didn't matter what country they came from or what I had to do to get them I just wanted the best functioning and bomb proof system around. In my opinion these are the best available."
Going from aluminium panniers (TT) to soft ones that costs like a thousand percent more.
Still having about a meter of snow so can't easily test the product. From what I can tell the quality is great. However, the dry bags could have been made in a softer, more rubber'ish material. I bet they will crack outside in -20C, but I can't tell unless being paid to do so (i'm no youtuber). And no, I don't plan to use them in -20C. The product is surprisingly heavy and also quite stiff and heavy to operate. I hope these will be superior to the ones I have...
Everything runs smoothly and in order ! Thanks.
One issue I want to mentioned is : In most of your You-Tubes video you explain the assembling very accurate. The only thing, Pete Day speaks for people
who are not talk and listen in english very often , very very fast ! I can hardly follow all details. So Pete, a little bit slower and everything is perfect ! Best regards Josef
I‘m love this it’s very good
Excellent fit and quality feels really solid. The mounting is very strong.
Happy with the panniers
Very fast shipping and delivery.
