We spent two+ years developing the Hood, testing every type of waterproof closure we could find. We needed something simple and strong enough for a tank bag, that will continue working even after thousands of uses in dusty, abusive conditions. We even spent 6 months experimenting with kayak hatches. The hatches turned out to be a bit of a rabbit hole, but they gave us the idea for the Hood.
The Hood achieves it's waterproofing through a welded-seam, waterproof clamshell lid (we call it a 'hood') that rests on an equally waterproof, welded-seam base. The hood pushes against a strip of piping that runs 360 degrees around the base. There's a rain gutter just below the piping that stops any water that tries to work its way up the sides. We even tested it with a pressure washer at the car wash, and everything inside stayed bone-dry!
The inside of the Hood features a large, open main compartment, with two removable sewn-seam wallets for things like cables, headphones, batteries, and credit cards. There's a charging cable and headphone pass-through port, so you can connect your phone and electronic accessories directly to the battery.
On the top of the Hood you'll find plenty of MOLLE webbing, which fits the included MOLLE compatible waterproof map pocket. If you don't need the map pocket, the MOLLE webbing also works great for a cell phone case, multi tool, or first aid kit instead.
The first person to take a selfie of the Hood on their bike in front of Mt. Hood while wearing a Hoodie gets a free Mosko tee!
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.
Fits like it was made for it. At first look this bag I thought not enough bling. I have a Mosko Nomad on my Africa Twin. Way Wrong. This is a no non sense don't worry about it bag. Even standing and forward there is room for the boys to find the CG on the bike.
It fits my Africa Twin really well. Holds plenty of gear and doesn’t get in my way when standing. One buckle to open “hood” is really handy. Love it.
I personally love that it's waterproof as is, no need for a rain cover! Also, the ability to open it one handed while wearing pretty much any motorcycle glove is great! Not overly large so great for anything up to somewhat technical terrain depending on how much freedom of movement you prefer.
Hood Tank bag, fits my 1090 perfect, not to big, and does not move. No way water can get inside! The moly system allows me to attach double pouch , where I store my water bladder, easy to drink from while riding.
Great tank bag. Perfect size, no zippers to mess with, one buckle does it all! I live in a rain forest (Girdwood, Ak), keeps everything dry! Fits on the 790R like it was made for it. This is my first piece of MM gear. The quality of it has me seriously considering MM Riding gear for next season.
