The Basilisk is our waterproof/breathable enduro-touring kit, for long-distance, multi-day trips through primarily off-road terrain. It combines super-premium 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 body systems for superior protection and versatility.
The Basilisk is incredibly waterproof and incredibly breathable. The body fabric is an abrasion-resistant eVent Expedition 3-layer, using eVent's proprietary direct venting technology. It's waterproof to 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. It's the only waterproof moto pant with air permeability, plus it has the highest waterproof ratings of any moto pant we've seen.
On the knees, we added SuperFabric ceramic platelets on a 600D waterproof/breathable base, sewn as an overlay on the main body eVent for added strength. With two-layers of fabric, you can damage the outer layer 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.
The Basilisk is light, nimble, and breathable, with the basic pockets and vents you need and nothing else. We eliminated hanging liners entirely, reducing weight, bulk, and heat. There are two thigh pockets, two knee scoop vents, two huge thigh vents, and two exhaust vents behind the leg. In hot weather: open all the vents and the cooler outside air envelop your upper thigh.
The Basilisk pant includes a sturdy old-school leather belt for waist adjustability, which works both on and off the bike. By opening the calf expansion zippers, tall people can add an additional 2" to the inseam – increasing it from 32" to 34." The leg openings are adjustable too, with waterproof internal gussets and overlapping Velcro flaps.

Rock solid gear with rock solid customer service. The panniers are well thought out and they are built extremely well. The Basilisk riding gear is substantial, comfortable, and wears very well on a bike. Mosko gear has impressed me with everything I’ve used and the people working there are awesome to deal with.
Love that I don’t have to worry about my gear no matter the terrain or weather. Well thought out and easy to use.
I was skeptical of riding with separate armor. I have always used adv pants with armor built in. But a 4 day trip with the basilisk pant on the WABDR in varying conditions (Snow in a pass, 95 degrees in Hood River!) has me converted. I have said this in other reviews but Mosko is a group of Moto enthisuaists with expertise in design... that is exactly who I want building my gear. They know what riders want and they test until they get the product right. I will never go back to my old pants and am saving my pennies to add the basilisk jacket as soon as it is back in stock. Another game changing product. It doesn’t hurt that I get to support smart entrepreneurs in my home state!
So far, I have only great things to say about the equipment I purchased. You can tell that a lot of thoughts and efforts has been put in the creation of the saddle bags and the pants I bought. If you don't fancy the idea of riding around with metal boxes that looks more like tool boxes then I think you ought to give a shot with those great Mosko saddle bags and the pants are awesome (almost, see below) I mean, don't get me wrong, the material, the look is 100% perfect, but the tailoring could be improved just a bit.
Now, considering that I have thrown a bunch of flowers, I would like to share some positive criticisms on the pants, or you could call that suggestions. I am a tall person and when I am wearing the pants, fully extended they reach the top of my foot which is ideal. Now, when I am riding the motorcycle, it is a different story. because the pant's crotch has only 1 seam to join both legs, then the pants tend to rise up in my own crotch and the end of the pants ends up being above the top of my boots (low profile boots, not the long adventure one). So it turned out that when it is rainy then the water goes into my boots.
Now, may I suggest that you create some kind of tie gap (2 seams) at the crotch so instead of being a triangle (/\) it would a square(/~\), so then when you sit on the seat, then the pants won't ride up your a~~, and the boot will be well covered. So, these were my 2 cents! Hope it helps... Final words, Why this equipment not fabricated in north America? This is very niche and special and would probably benefit your own community to have those things fabricated here... No? Well, you asked for a feedback! Cheers
