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!
Looks like it’ll be a perfect fit for my bike. It’ll be nice not to have the camelback in the bag instead of on my back

Purchased this tool roll to replace my Mosko Fatty tool roll. This is the right size with the right amount of organization for my needs.
I bought this tool roll for lightweight adventure riding. This is a step up from my minimalist dirt bike tool kit. The pictures on the internet deceived me, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I can actually fit in this roll. The 2 zippered pockets are especially welcomed for odd shaped or loose items.
The build quality seems top notch. The whole thing feels sturdy. There were no loose threads or shabby stitches to be found. The rain cover is a nice touch, is made of thick material, and feels very durable.
As a first time Mosko Moto customer, I was skeptical about splurging for one of the more expensive tool rolls out there. However now it is obvious what those extra dollars get you. I look forward to acquiring more Mosko gear as I find the need for it.
Fits everything you need. The two zip pockets are excellent for all the loose things.
