Absolutely great product :-)

Although the winter is slowing me down at the moment my first impressions are absolutely positiv. I've been looking for a jacket like this for so long and the Basilisk Jacket really exceeds my expectations. M fits perfect for a 60 kilogram and 1,85 meter tall male person. The 2022 design is really awesome again in my opinion.

Rigido

Un ottimo prodotto simile al guscio Touratech
Lo trovo però troppo rigido e voluminoso quando é ripiegato e riposto nella valigia laterale.
Preferisco il rak pullover perché più morbido e occupa meno spazio

2021 Basilisk in Morocco

I was given a 2021 Basilisk to test but my bike got nicked so I didn’t get round to using it until November in southern Morocco in hot, dry conditions. Tbh a Surveyor (or Adventure Spec’s Linesman) might have worked better; bar a couple of chilly mornings in the High Atlas the vents were open all month and I was still hot (890R’s low screen worked too well). I don’t wear armour but I value the rugged shell and prefer the sage colour to the lively 2023s. Desert dust made the zips stiff to operate; just needed a wet wipe of course, but the 2023 front flap will lessen this and probably slow pelting rain too. One complaint is the bulky sleeves, even for armour clamped to well-fed American arms – they easily fitted my legs! I spend a lot of time watching my group in the mirrors; a couple of velcro cinch straps like on my Aero Darien or old Klim Overland would fix this. Full review on my adventure-motorcycling website. Now lent to a mate for winter UK testing.

Basilisk - Tolle Jacke!

Die Jacke macht einen hochwertigen Eindruck und sieht super aus.
In Gr. L passt sie mit BodyArmor einwandfrei (186cm/81Kg).
Mir gefällt das geringe Gewicht und die vielfältigen Belüftungsmöglichkeiten.
Bist dato bin ich hoch zufrieden, auch der Versand erfolgt innerhalb kürzester Zeit - Spitzenklasse!
Ich bin zuversichtlich, dass die erste Ausfahrt meine bisherigen Eindrücke bestätigt und ich sehr glücklich mit der Basilisk werde.

The Basilisk Jacket gets further refinements as it takes on a true 2.0 redesign. The Basilisk remains our waterproof/breathable enduro-touring kit, for long-distance, multi-day trips through primarily off-road terrain. It combines high-performance materials with clean lines and minimalist design. With an articulated fit for freedom of motion and easy layering, the Basilisk is designed to work with separate armor systems for superior protection and better versatility. It packs smaller than a traditional ADV jacket, for stashing on your bike when things get hot.

The Basilisk is incredibly waterproof and incredibly breathable. The body fabric is a highly abrasion-resistant eVent Expedition 3-layer, using eVent's proprietary Direct Venting™ technology. Heat and water vapor move directly through the air permeable membrane, allowing your body to breathe freely and stay comfortable. With a 30,000mm on the water column (100 feet of water pressure), with an MVTR of 10,000 g/m/d, .06cfm air permeability, and DWR to keep you dry in wet conditions. It's the only air permeable riding jacket we have come across and it has the highest waterproof ratings we've ever seen. To improve the Basilisk 2.0’s ability to shed water, we added storm flaps to all external zippers. In high abrasion areas like the shoulders, back, and elbows, we added Super Fabric® ceramic platelets on a 600D waterproof/breathable overlay for added strength. With double-layer fabric, you can crash repeatedly and still stay dry. Our zippers are top-of-the-line water repellent YKK Vislon Aquaguard: they won't clog with dust and grime, and they're easy to operate one-handed with gloves. There are two external hand pockets and two chest pockets. (One external, one internal), with six substantial vents placed strategically for maximum airflow. On the inside we eliminated hanging liners entirely, reducing weight, bulk, and heat. In high abrasion areas like the shoulders and elbows, laminated patches protect the tricot lining.
 
The Basilisk jacket is designed to work with separate body armor for extended enduro-touring trips. This not only offers better protection but also makes it a more versatile jacket across the wide range of conditions you experience on extended trips. If you've never used separate body armor, here are the reasons we love it:

-  Temperature Management: Riding hard in a hot climate with separate armor, you can remove your jacket without losing your protection. On a hot day riding offroad in the desert, taking your jacket off is a game-changer. This is particularly valuable when moving slower through challenging terrain where air flow is limited.

-  Impact Protection: Separate armor has better coverage, and holds the pads closer to your body, so they're exactly where they need to be in a crash. Armor pads suspended loosely in the hanging liner of a motorcycle jacket are insufficient for riding off-road where crashes are more common.
 
The jacket that accomplishes its mission with the least features, is best. That's the Basilisk. It's light, nimble, waterproof and breathable, with only the pockets and vents you need and nothing else. 
 
Complete this kit with the Basilisk Pant.
 
Ethically produced in Bangladesh.
