*Updated for 2021, the Fatty and Pinner Tool Rolls are now closed and fastened with a Moto Strap, replacing the previous bulky and less durable velcro strap. Updated product images coming soon!
Fatty too big? Roll a Pinner! The quantity of tools you'd take for a day ride on a dirt bike is going to be a lot less than you'd take around the world. The pinner fits in pockets, tank bags, and MOLLE Pouches. It's a perfect home for the OEM tool kit you got with your bike, plus the other tools and odds & ends you've acquired over time.
When we first investigated tool storage solutions several years ago, we were initially turned off by the 'roll,' even though we were all using them. A tool roll seems so old-school, like something a cowboy would've carried, or a biker gang in the 50s. Surely there's a better, more modern way?
With more research though, we came around. There's a reason why tool rolls persist. The beauty of a roll versus, say, a bag or box, is that it naturally expands and contracts based on how much stuff is in it, and it conforms to a wide variety of tool shapes and sizes, while still rolling into a tidy package that fits in a stash-spot or external pocket.
With tool rolls, we felt there'd been a 'race to the bottom' on price-point and features. There are so many tool rolls already on the market, all with very similar features, and all at the lowest possible prices. Many OEMs even ship a tool roll for free with every bike. So we went a different direction in designing the Fatty and Pinner. We cut zero corners on materials and features, and we hope we created the most awesome tool roll you'll ever own.
Is there another waterproof tool roll out there? If so, we haven't seen it. The Fatty & Pinner come with highly abrasion-proof, welded-seam, waterproof rain covers. Tools are heavy and hard, and they press and vibrate against everything they touch, so the rain cover's gotta' be tough. This one is tough as nails, and it doubles as a trailside parts tray. If you're riding in the desert and don't need the raincover, no problem: reduce bulk by leaving the raincover at home and taking only the tool roll itself.
Sliding the roll out of the raincover, you'll see lots of tool storage pockets, with webbing straps to hold everything. Unlike traditional tool rolls, however, there's also a large Velcro flap that traps your tools in place, so your tiniest hex key won't escape somewhere out in the woods. Inside the flap there's a zippered mesh pocket for tube patches and tire repair.
What about those bulky tools that never fit? Things like vice grips and open-ended wrenches? We added two large zipper pockets to accommodate these, plus spark plugs, JB Weld, sockets, Loctite, and all those other things which you always need but can't find, because they're somewhere in the bottom of your bag.
There's a webbing belt on the outside that easily transfers from the outside of the rain cover to the outside of the roll itself, depending on where you want it. There's also a handle on top, so you can easily pull the Pinner from an external pocket or MOLLE pouch.
We hope you enjoy rolling your Pinner as much as we enjoyed designing it!
Bag Care Pointers:
The Pinner Tool Roll is fantastic, I use it when I ride the trial bike, it fits everything you need and it doesn't take up much space. I already own the Fatty Tool Roll that I use with the Africa Twin CRF1000L Adventure Sports 2018 when I practice motoadventuring. Your products are exceptional, soon I will also buy the Reckless 10L for the practice of motorcycle mountaineering.
Pinner Tool Roll
Perfect size, well thought-out details, excellent finish
Pinner Tool Roll
Great product, as you would expect from Mosko. I stuffed all the tools I need and still the roll packs great. I fitted wrenches, tire levers, patches, wires, and many more bits and pieces. The only thing I try to figure out is how to attach the roll out on a molle or else. Sure I can pack it in by bag, but I would like to take advantage of the weather bag. Ideas?
