Offroad trip packing list

This page details all the stuff I pack for an offroad trip, why I pack it and how I use it. The list has evolved to what it is today and works well for me, maybe you can use it too!

I use this packing list primarily on my drz where I use 2 main luggage systems:

  • Mosko Moto Reckless 80 (v1) – These saddlebags don’t require a rack and fit very close to the bike, limiting the total width. It is very tough and waterproof. I like the modular approach with dry bags and small smart features like the beavertail and the molle straps. I added two bottle holders and a ‘trunk’ bag via these molle straps.
  • Giant Loop Diablo tank bag plus pannier pockets – This tank bag is small enough so it doesn’t get in the way when I stand up on the pegs and it fits nicely over the drz tank allowing some room for the vent hose. The main compartment comes with a drybag that I use to add my most valuable items and can take with me off the bike easily. The pannier pockets are a nice addition for easily accessible storage that is out of the way.

The general layout of what I take and where I store it is in this diagram:

Tank bag

The tank bag main compartment contains stuff that’s either valuable or is often used and therefore easiest to grab.

* Small but powerful battery pack: Mojogear mini evo. This batterypack is powerful enough to charge a phone, gopro batteries, helmet headset and more in one charge. I connect it to the bike during the day so I can charge my phone (and other stuff) in the tent at night.
