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.
On short notice, I jumped on a tour offer for a 7-day offroad trip on a BMW F850GS. Being a street rider with a magnetic tankbag, I went looking for a tailbag that would be durable enough to handle my stuff. Since we had a support vehicle for our gear, I mainly needed something to carry water, snacks, spare glasses and a camera. The Stinger 8L Tailbag did all of that. I ended up mounting it on the side luggage rack rather than the tail for easier access, but it works great in either place. It took some abuse but still looks great. I learned about Mosko from advrider.com.
Their products are very well thought out, colors materials, mounting, it all just works awesome! I have the Reckless 80 and works perfect on my 2017 R1200GS Rallye!
Awesome bag. Fits my DR650 tail rack well . Will try out on my older BMW also.
This bag works for day trips and is very easy to strap down. Overall good simple design.
I bought this to keep my MSR elixir 1 tent safe and dry on trips. (Along with the Mosko tent pole bag).
It's built as well, and with as much thought, as the other Mosko stuff I've purchased.
The material it's made from is tough, and the bag has enough straps, buckles, etc, in all the right places that I can mount it several different ways, and different places on the bike depending on what I'm using it for. (Part of a larger set-up in the reckless 40, or individually with some snacks, tools, etc for a day trip).
I currently own this bag, the tent pole bag, a reckless 40, Scout 25 duffle, small molle pouches, and previously had a Stinger 22.
The same quality, and thought, has gone into EVERY piece.
I'm not normally one who gets hung up on brand loyalty, but the Mosko Moto stuff is so good, they have me totally hooked!
