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.
The opening system is extremely well though and it works perfectly with one hand (really unique on the market). Plus, having no zip, it will never fail because of mud or dust. So, PLEASE Mosko, consider a tail bag with this system!!!
Overall, this tankbag is very well made. It fits the 790 Adventure R - and probably most bikes - perfectly. Good size and good shape (it won't bother you standing up, and you can still put a lot inside).
For those who own the 690 or 701: keep me mind the big rear buckles will end up against the inside your thighs, which is not ideal (this is only because the bike has no front tank). That could be easily changed (Mosko?).
Last, I think the organizers are too bulky and take too much space in the main compartment.
That being said, WELL DONE MOSKO TEAM!
The reason for the purchase were the many good details, such as the zip pockets and the velcro pockets. At first sight the workmanship is also excellent. The delivery time including tracking of the delivery status were very satisfying.
Another hit from the team at Mosko Moto. The zipperless/waterproof design with one handed operation attracted me to this bag.
Given the sloping tank of my BMW R1200GS-LC, I've been searching for a bag that not only fits great, but has excellent features.
* Quick connect/ disconnect buckles
* Extra padding on the bottom conforms to the tank shape
Once again, the Mosko Moto team offers us a masterpiece. The Hood tank bag. Finally a tank bag that you can open with one hand, even wearing winter gloves. Easy and fast access, it is not a large bag to carry luggage, we are talking about a bag to carry daily items.
It fits perfectly a DSLR camera, something that someone who likes photography, will appreciate well. The carrying large bags to travel with the camera is over. There is room for some spare gloves, documentation, maps, chargers, etc ...
In addition, it brings an outer pocket, also waterproof, where an ipad fits! (standard size) Ideal if you are used to traveling with one as a map.
The closure is completely waterproof, no longer have to worry about carrying covers, or similar solutions. The upper molle system gives you the option to expand the load by adding items.
Bring some quality straps to mount the bag on the motorcycle tank, and bring some (removable) pieces of foam, to adjust the bag in case the tank cap protrudes a little. Great idea.
Very good detail to add inside the bag, two wallets with velcro, to carry cables, coins, money, passport and small objects.
It has an output port for cables, to allow charging the phone, or navi, or transponder inside the bag.
As always with all Mosko Moto products, happy with a bag that really works. Super fast delivery!! (Europe)
I recently ordered a Hood tank bag, to ensure that all paperwork inside it stays dry even during down-poor. the quality is great and highly recommend it.
I always get amazed how every single little detail ends up coming in handy. Never had any issues.
I have ordered multiple tank bags and a duffel bags.
Really pleased with my mosko gear.
