The Stinger 8 is an incredibly versatile roll-top drybag designed to mount as a tail/fender bag on smaller bikes, for carrying tools, tubes and other essentials, or as a topper on hard-side panniers or top boxes. It also turns into a backpack, in case you need a daypack for hiking into a hot spring, or making a quick trip into town for supplies. The backpack straps stash away in an internal pocket, and then deploy through the opening of the bag, clipping to two d-rings on the bottom. When the Stinger is setup as a backpack its capacity is larger than 8L.
On the bottom of the Stinger 8 we added four sewn-on connection straps that loop through ladderlocks on the top of the bag, so you can connect it to fender cleats on a dirt bike, or to a luggage rack or hard-side pannier. When not in use, the straps stash away in a flat pocket on the back. If you prefer to use a different connection system, there are webbing pass-throughs on the top of the bag which can accommodate any kind of strap.
I purchased the Stinger 8 in conjunction with a Stinger 22 which is my main tail-bag. I’m using the Stinger 8 as a simple tank bag that I attach using some additional 1” webbing cam buckle straps. With the simplest and most functional aspect being a roll top dry bag for things I need protected from extreme dust and rains which is less often in the Southwest. The only thing that’s a bit strange is the backpack straps have to come from the inside of the bag with the top open, eliminating the purposefulness of the dry bag. I don't think I’ll use the straps often but think it would have made more sense if they were on the exterior as the Stinger 22’s design.
Stinger 8L Tailbag
Perfect made, top notch materials, well thought-out details. The delivery has been done that swiftly. So l’m happy!
Bought this for an DRZ400 but tired it out on the Tiger top case and loved the portability and ease of use that I’m going to save some lunch money to purchase the larger 22L stinger version. The backpack features is such a great addition, grabbed the bag and packed some snacks and waters and did a little hike sesh with it! Definitely as with all Mosko Moto gear worthy of every hard earned penny paid! Buy it!!!
Having a good-sized "go bag" makes all the difference when you need to carry a few essential items. The Stinger 8 does just that. Works great and as designed with my Reckless 10.
