The newly redesigned Scout 30L Duffle (was Scout 25L Duffle) is a single-layer, welded-seam, roll-top drybag - but not your average drybag. We went back to the drawing board and completely revamped the duffle, loading it with every moto-specific feature we could think of. It quickly converts to a comfortable backpack, or an over the shoulder duffle, the choice is yours. A key feature is the rugged and fully removable beavertail stash spot, complete with two reinforced mesh pockets and plenty of extra webbing for max expansion. The Scout 30 works great as a standalone tailbag, a travel bag, or a pannier topper on hard boxes. We recommend our Backcountry cinch straps to secure it to your bike!
The backpack straps come in handy if you break down and need to hike out, or when navigating an airport or border crossing on fly-to-ride trips. They're also helpful when you need to get all your gear to an upstairs hotel room in a single trip. If you're not using the backpack straps, they either stash flat in an external pocket or can be removed entirely and left at home.
The Scout 30 Duffle includes a unique beavertail with reinforced mesh zipper pockets on one side and 5 columns of Hypalon MOLLE webbing on the other, so you can expand and customize this bag with an assortment of 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 Scout 30 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. The Scout also includes a comfortable, padded shoulder strap that stashes away under the beavertail or inside the bag when it's not in use and there are two easy-grab carry handles, one on each side of the bag.
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.

"This bag is great! I use it as a tailbag on my 1090 on top of an AltRider Rear Luggage rack and it's a perfect fit! It's the perfect size to hold darn near everything I need for a ride into work or an overnighter into the forest. Super well built, dry (and that's important in the PNW) and as a bonus - it works great for a backrest when loaded up for my pillion! This bag checks all the boxes and then some. Get one!"
I have not tested out the Scout 50L Duffle yet in real world testing but that day is coming soon as weather improves. The duffle is made in the same quality and thickness as my TAT tested Backcountry bags. Unfortunately on the TAT I cheaped out on a lesser "waterproof" duffle only to find a nice damp sleeping bag in it after I rained. To paraphrase Good Morning Vietnam, a damp sleeping bag is "alright if you're with the ladies but it ain't no good in the jungle."
Anyhow, I have learned my lesson and corrected my mistake. Also, I don't know if it's the covid situation or what, but I haven't had anyone really to talk to except my family so the folks at Mosko have been great just to chat with and more than helpful. Thanks for saving my sanity Mosko!
This Duffle replaced a very durable waterproof Duffle that I and my son have been using for years. I have been able to use it on a couple occasions now and I have to say I love how durable and waterproof it is.
I liked this duffle so much for the rear rack of my 2019 Goldwing (non tour) I purchased the 50L for the rear pillion (on long trips I travel solo). Are Goldwings allowed to rock Mosko?!?!
Amazing Duffle. If you’re not buying Mosko Moto products then you aren’t buying the best.
I own the backcountry 40L duffle and recently added the Scout 30L to my collection. The main purpose of the bag is to sit on the rear seat of my R1200GS in front of the top box. As always the construction is second to none and the thought that has gone into the upgrades is really good. The Scout when packed has the following:
* Helinox Chair 2 and Helinox Table One
* Big Agnes 2 man tent, Q-core SLX pad and a 45 degree sleeping bag
* S2S sleeping bag liner and a pillow
* Machette and 6"x4" chopping board
* A biolite camp light and the usual wooly hat, headlamp and a couple of portable chargers
* Finally it either has a MSR two pot system which has bowls, burner, paring knife, cleaner and a frying pan or 4 medium gas bottles for cooking.
As I have only just got it and yet to take a trip I think there is option to put the chair and table into a waterproof stuff sack and have that under the beaver tail allowing the pots and gas bottles to go in the bag.
I provided the packing list to show you how much you get in and bear in mind I'm 6'2" so my sleeping bag and pad etc are long not regular so this bag packs bigger than its size in my mind as I'm not jamming everything in.
The beaver tail is removable, it has a clear waterproof pocket on the inside and molle one the outside which will take the 4L molle bag from Mosko with ease.
All in all if you looking for well made, high capacity bag, expandable waterproof bag then get this one and you will not be disappointed.
