Our Tent Pole Bag is a welded-seam, roll-top drybag that replaces the flimsy OEM bag that came with you tent. Many of us store our tent poles separate from our tent, which makes the tent itself much easier to pack. However, when the poles are stored on the outside of your luggage, the tent poles tend to vibrate against the inside of the OEM bag and wear holes in the material over time, which allows tent stakes and poles to escape. Our tent pole bag, made from sturdy double-layer 22oz vinyl, resolves those problems.
The tent pole bag can be connected to the daisy chains on the inside of the Reckless 80 beavertail, or to the daisy chains on the top of the Backcountry 30 Duffle v2.0, or to any other bag or luggage rack with lash-down points. It includes two webbing attachment straps.
Note: this bag is designed for 1-3 man backpacking tents. It may not fit tent poles for larger family-size and/or expedition tents.
I really like my rackless 40 for minimalist camping. No complaints and would recommend it anytime. the tent bag I will not use. its to wide for my poles; too small to add anything else into it and over all to long/wide for minimalist. If I had the 80 or another system it could work.
Tent Pole Bag
I purchased the Reckless 40L for a six day dirt bike (KTM 350) Baja adventure. The flexibility of the beaver tail allowed me to strap on a bigger bag (dryspec) and then stap on another light bag for the tubes, pump, and oil.
I also purchased the 4L molle storage pouches and the tent pole bag. I carried extra water in one pouch and food in the other. The tent pole bag fit securely into the Reckless 40L.
We road deep sand, technical steep trails, and highway. The bag worked great. It stayed in place and carried the additional load. More importantly, it did not interfere with my riding.
Finally, the customer service at Mosko Moto was great. I noticed a defect in one of the straps about a week before I left on my adventure. Even though most of the office was out of the country testing new equipment, and before I had to return the original bag, Mosko Moto sent me a new bag. Needless to say, it would have been hard to have a six day Baja adventure without a bag.
In short, it is a great, sturdy, flexible weekend bad ready for a six day adventure.
I was having trouble finding a way of packing my tent poles that made me feel confident they'd be intact, and still with me, when I got to the campsite.
My MSR Elixir 1 footprint, pegs, and poles, fit in the bag with room to spare.
The included straps allow me to fasten it to my bike securely, and the bag itself is tough enough that I know they'll be well protected in there.
Another awesome piece from Mosko!
With Michigan Winter in effect, I've yet to field test my new Mosko Moto tent pole bag, but I'm experienced enough to know great build quality when I put my hands on just such an item. This bag is top notch just like my good friends Backcountry 35 Panniers that I helped install. I purchased this tent pole bag to securely house my "Dirt Napper" (big-bike ratcheting lift) and aid in securing it to the top of a hard pannier or the back rack when traveling solo. Or, I may occasionally use it for tent poles and stakes when the circumstances allow. Thanks, GAS GUY
