Mosko Moto Nomad Sneak Peak
Mosko Moto luggage has caught on like wildfire in the past few years. Their innovation continues with the new Nomad tank bag which will be available around June of 2017.
ADVMoto got a sneak peak at the Nomad which sports a host of new features not found on many tank bags on the market. As mountain bikers and backcountry skiers, the design crew at Mosko envisioned a tank bag which works more like a technical backpack. This gave rise to a robust organization system, which is designed to not only hold items commonly found in tank bags, but also be sure they stay compressed and dry.
The expandable beavertail covers a pleathora of pockets for pens, multi tools, even a custom sized Delorme PLB pocket. It’s expandable so works great for storing your camera in a very accessible location and attached to compression straps which make sure your load is snug and rattle free.
The outer shape was designed to work primarily as tank bag, but also doubles as a great small hiking/day pack. Whether you’re doing a hike from your bike while on a BDR, or walking in a market in Mexico, having the ability to turn it into a pack is very convenient. The Nomad quickly detaches from the bike. Underneath you will find the mesh backpack straps that deploy, and connect to the blue D-rings. The aft-mounting straps turn into the waist straps.
Another feature Mosko Moto wanted to push was hydration. The Platypus hydration bladder is included with every Nomad. They are firm believers that water should not be worn on your back. “The riding jackets we have to wear are heavy enough! So we made a hydration pocket in the lowest level, up against the gas tank.” says Andrew Bryden of Mosko Moto. The hose routes out a small zipper and up over the side so it is easily accessible while seated.
If you choose not to use this pocket for hydration, it could also make a great concealed-carry pocket.
Last but not least, the Nomad features the MOLLE attachment system. On this bag it has been placed on the beaver tail and means that you can add the included map pocket, knife, first-aid or anything with MOLLE webbing on it.
MSRP is still unknown at this point but we look forward to getting our hands on one for testing. We suspect this bag will not only be a good option to ADV/dual-sporting, but commuting and everyday outdoor activities as well.
