Has anyone here in the NW used their gear? LittlePosum's Giant Loop Great Basin is worn out after 3 years of use and I'm starting to look for a replacement. The Reckless line (and everything else they have) looks pretty tight. I realize that line won't be out till around June, but any first hand opinions on other stuff they've made?

You might try pm'ing Sideup (Jack) he was kind of a beta tester for them and has been using their stuff for the last year. I ordered the Reckless but won't see it until sometime in June. Sideup can answer any question you might have

Big thread in vendors by Pete/Sideoff. I want to pull the trigger, but I'm not thrilled about light colored bags.

I ordered the Reckless 80. It's probably bigger than I need but I don't have to fill it up. I could care less about colors, it's going to be covered in dust anyway

Gear Guide

Hey MR DS.

I am a gear guide for Mosko. (Aka. a customer who really likes their stuff)
I just had a review of the 35L panniers published in the Jan/Feb ADVMoto magazine.



Reckless.
I just had my hands on the Reckless system, and I can tell you it is a great product.

Things I liked were that once the system is mounted, you can pull the inner bags out of the holster and into your tent or hotel. You don't have to un-mount the whole thing, or try and get pods to fit into a large horseshoe type system. The top storage area has a map case/ document holder built in, along with additional small pockets for quick access items. If you want to pack a duffle, you can leave the top bag at home or stuff it in the duffle. The holster and inner bags all have sew in semi ridged backings to help keep shape and ease of packing. These things are heavy duty and will take a fall no problem. M.O.L.L.E is another great feature.

I am really liking the reckless 80. I like the flexibility of the holsters and the top piece beaver tail.
The video on the site is great. It is amazing how soft luggage has morphed in the last few years and that system is at the top in my book.
So tempting....

I bought Alt Riders Hemisphere last year and the first couple of points you made about about the Reckless is what I really liked about the AR Hemi.
That and no zippers to mess with.
It was awesome to be able to pull all the gear out of the holsters and still have saddlebags to run into town with and get supplies.
The Reckless is the next level though. If I hadn't purchased the Hemi just last year I'd be getting the Reckless for myself as well. I think LittlePosum will love it.

I installed a set last October and since then used them on a ride from LA to Panama. They worked great. Am now using them as my daily bags for shopping etc. (don't own a car) and again they've been great.
The only concern may be that they aren't designed to be lockable to the bike or to be locked closed. I don't worry about professional thieves as that is what insurance is for, more interested in discouraging the moderately dishonest.
I dealt with that by using a cover for the bike when in uncomfortable situations and by running a cable through the bags and locking to the bike.

I have a 40 liter duffel and it is top notch. I am very impressed with their gear.

I have their backcountry 35 panniers and 40 duffle, superb quality, durable, but slightly heavier then comparable soft luggage, but that should add to its longevity. If you're ever back in bend give me shout, you can check them out.

So this is kinda creepy. I googled Mosko Moto and Giant Loop has put a tag so they come up when Mosko is googled. WTF!
