Complete this kit with the Basilisk Jacket
Bought them for a 11 day long trip from Kuala Lumpur to Chiang Mai for my 30th birthday.
Light, comfy and with big pockets. Thought it was love but things got sour. First red flag was when the buttons didn’t really lock completely. Told Mosko about this and they offered a repair or to reimburse me for a repair but with my trip this close, I pushed it from my mind and broke them in with a weeks worth of rides to work before my trip.
It’s now day 4 of my trip to Thailand and I’ve gotten soaked 4 times. It’s monsoon season here and some how the rain is getting through the fabric. The pockets are keeping my things somewhat dry but the pants seem to quit after an hour of rain and I get wet from my waist down to my thigh. After about 2 hours the water starts to drip down my leg into my boot. Now wet socks and boots. Planning to get wet for the whole of next week I guess.
Luckily the massive vents help dry my underwear out a bit so they aren’t completely soaked when I reach my BnB for the day.
They do really well in the heat though. Fitted an exhaust that extends closer to my shins and wearing regular jeans makes me wanna stop riding after 30 mins. Barely feel anything with these on. Not to mention when it stops raining and the sun starts cooking. Just unzip everything and alls good. If only there were calf zips :)
Tldr. I love how they look and feel but if I knew they weren’t really stormproof I wouldn’t have picked them for this ride. Glad I didn’t get the jacket combo coz that would’ve really hurt my wallet and ego.
Before the Basilisk pants I was wearing Klim Switchback or the Latitude bought mostly for touring with the wife.
This year I wanted to experiment off road with the GS, the enduro boots fit very tightly under the Switchback pants, I wanted to upgrade.
I discovered Mosko watching YouTubers, fell on the Mosko channel, watched some reviews, I never heard a bad thing, so I bought some pants.
I’m 5’8”, inseam of 31-32 inches, I bought a 32 regular. In a boutique, I would’ve tried on the 30 to compare, I really need a belt. It was no surprise that the Basilisk is a shell without padding at the hips and knees. I wear knee guards and Klim tactical pants. Plenty of room, very comfy, I’m sure there is room for a sturdier knee brace.
The venting is UH-MAY-ZING. With the front thigh opened and the back exhaust, there is a ton of air, even sitting behind a big bike like a GS.
Compared to the Klim Altitude, the Basilisk feel soft, and better cut. Moving on the bike, sitting down, getting up on the pegs and moving around, I never thought about the pants, they just feel right. I have not yet hit rain, so the waterproofness can’t be reviewed, but I trust the eVent.
Only two small things are bugging me a bit. The pant leg does not have a zipped opening which would make putting on the boots a bit easier. If it’s to keep the pants waterproof I see the point. Other thing is the lack of regular hand pockets. It would be practical when off the bike.
The basilisk pants are expensive, but compared to the Klim Latitude I have, they are lighter, softer, they seem more rugged with the super fabric. If the Basilisk jacket is as comfy as the pants, I might be in trouble and have to order one in a predictable future…
Looking at Mosko’s stuff, it' the first time I really feel like real riders are designing the gear. Great stuff!
The Mosko Moto Basilisk pants Are in my top 5 favorite pieces of motorcycle camping gear items of all time!
I recently purchased the basilisk pants for my motorcycle camping adventures.
Little did I know that on my first day wearing them the skies would open the floodgates from hell no joking.
The weather report said no rain so I set off to meet my freind from Arizona in southern Utah.
The ride is about 4 hours for me and about 30 minutes in it started raining.
That was just the up of the spear as soon I was in 30 plus mph winds and hail with the rain.
In true adventure form it stopped raining 20 miles from our meetup spot lol.
The next day we again checked the forecast which said no rain but wouldn’t you k ow we ended up in so much rain we had to take cover. We waited it out for a bit and made a ride for it only to find the road was impassable because of a flash flood.
The only time I got wet was the first storm because it was 90 degrees and I had all of my vents open.
I can not say enough how absolutely bad ass and waterproof these pants are!
They basilisk pants not only kept me totally dry but they are stylish and comfortable to!
I have owned other pants, klim, revit etc but the Mosko Moto basilisk pants are my favorite and now the most comfortable and most trusted riding pants I’ve experienced.
I honestly will be using and trusting only Mosko Moto basilisk gear for all of my future motorcycle adventures.
I hope that answers any questions you might have if you’re tho long about grabbing some Mosko basilisk yourself.
2 wheels and a tent
Mosko Moto for the win!!!
Great pants, everything you can dream of ! I had problem with the sizing, I am usually a 36 in every brand of pants but I now know I am a 34 mosko. The return was easy, the girl who helped my was resourceful and I had my pants for the Colorado trip.
Zipper broke on my pant. Mosko sent me a new pant and let me use my old until I get the new one shortened like I have on the first and then return it to Mosko when the new pant is ready to use when taylor is back from holliday in August.
That is great customerservice 101 👌
