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.

“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.”
Fitment is spot on, now waiting for spring to try them out
After months of consideration I ordered the Scout 25l side bags for my Honda CB500X and all I can say is that I’ve made the best choice ever! Endless storage in tough bags that I have already put to the test several times since installing them! Would definetely recommend the Scout both for adventure and for commuting.
My 1st mosko moto made product was BMW Atacama 40L Duffle & Pannier set (equivalent to Mosko's Backcountry v1.0). It was well made but i wanted more flexibility and less weight & bulk.
So i bought The SCout 25L panniers & 30L Scout Duffle.
Ordering - was very simple and quick.
Delivery - it was shipped across the world to Malaysia and i had it in my hands, only 9 days from date of order. Amazing? Thank you.
Installation - viewed Pete's youtube video on installation prior to arrival of goods. I installed it in 10 minutes per side. Super simple.
Usage - it has been a week since i had it installed, but no chance for a trip yet. However, i have been transporting abnormal sized stuff in the Scout's harness.
- a square box to the size of a helmet
- a roll of drawings in a tube
- motorcycle seat
- 1 crate of beer
LoL... i was amazed and amused at the flexibility the Scout harness has. Looking forward to more usage and will share them on IG with #moskomoto #moskomotoscout25
