*Updated for 2021, the Fatty Tool Roll (V2.0) is now closed and fastened with a Moto Strap, replacing the previous bulky and less durable velcro strap. Updated product video coming soon!
Roll a Fatty with the Fatty Tool Roll (V2.0)! It fits everything you need for an extended ADV trip, plus packable tire irons, tube patches, and more. There are two handy zippered catchall pockets for oddly shaped items like Loctite and JB Weld, or larger tools like an adjustable wrench. Everything rolls up into a waterproof cover, so you can store the Fatty outside your luggage and all your tools will stay bone dry.
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. On the outside of the Fatty, there's three long pockets for tire irons, which are always kind of a hassle to store.
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. Next to the two large zipper pockets, we added a clear zipper pocket for documents, an air gauge, or anything else you want to tuck away. It even has a conversion table printed on the interior clear vinyl pocket.
Bag Care Pointers:
"After searching all over for a tool carrier that can organize big tools and small parts alike, a friend sent me to Mosko. The Fatty is just perfect. Large tools and small, spare parts, and MacGyver gizmos all have a place. The waterproof bag makes it indispensable. It holds a big tool kit and bundles up right. The lash strap loops let me tie it when there's no room to stow it. One of a kind kit!"
Great tool roll very well made and designed to by people who clearly use tool rolls. Small or large just depends on what you put in it or what you need that day, week or month. As ever a very nice bit of kit.
Quality is great
it‘s great … maybe simple THE BEST
I love it, it is a bit fat when you completely stuff it. I need to get over all the items and sort out what I realy need.
It is very well made and looks great. I do have my doubts about the strap though, folding it over the buckle to close seems to put a lot of stress on the material. We'll see how it holds up over time.
Good as always. I have the Pinner already, but I find the Fatty more convenient and can be strapped more easily on it's own.
