I am currently in the middle of the COBDR ride, and we have hit temps as low as 39, high as 84, rain and sleet and everything in between. I purchased the Basilisk jacket and pants for this trip, and this is hands down the best gear I have ever worn. The only wish is that I could have something to attach the jacket collar to the jacket when you don’t zip it all the way. Works great with all my under gear and crash protection. I am someone that works in the industry, and could have picked any number of other gear to wear, and I have tried them all. Two thumbs up to a great product, just wish I would have bought the hat too. In the end buy what you like and can afford, but like they say, buy once cry once. And if you end up with something this good the pain fades quickly.
For starters, the Basilisk Jacket is worth the price. This jacket is bomb-proof. If you have ever been caught by surprise in a pounding rain storm at 48 degrees, and you had subpar outer gear, then you may want the Basilisk. It works great if you are into layering and can be worn in most situations, minus very hot days. I'm 5-8, 165, 38.5 inch chest, 32 inch waist, athletic build and the Small fits perfectly, hope that helps for sizing.
The jacket is great, however I wish MM would make their trousers also in 3xl 😢
Jacket is perfectly built, used materials feel (and really are) premium quality. Zippers are quite hard to open/close but are waterproof so it is not a downside. Collar is not one of the most comfortable parts of the jacket but I got used to it and it feels fine now. Venting is stellar. Size L fits perfectly with my Knox Urbane Pro Mk. III (also L) protection layer and still leaves enough space for warm mid layer - I am 187cm/87kg. Definitely worth the money.
