Basilisk Jacket

Size Guide >

The Basilisk is our waterproof/breathable enduro-touring kit, for long-distance, multi-day trips through primarily offroad 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 armor for superior protection and versatility. It packs smaller than a traditional ADV jacket, for stashing on the back of the 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. 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 jacket on the market that also has air permeability, plus it has the highest waterproof ratings of any moto jacket we’ve ever seen.

In high abrasion areas like the shoulders, back, and elbows, we added SuperFabric ceramic platelets on a 600D waterproof/breathable base, sewn as an overlay on the main body eVent 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.

The Basilisk jacket is our full-throated endorsement of separate body armor for extended enduro-touring trips, where integrated armor is a pain. 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.
  • 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 offroad.

The jacket that accomplishes its mission with the least features, is best. That’s the Basilisk. It’s 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 external and two internal pockets, with six substantial vents placed strategically for maximum airflow.

    Basilisk Jacket

    5 Stars all around. Fits true to size. I would definitely recommend this jacket, I also ordered the armor to go underneath, it will take some getting used to but all around is very comfortable and very durable.

    Not a Kiss Ass Koolaid Review

    Bought jacket and pants. Weird fit for jacket where XL was a little tight with armor, got the XXL and way, way way too large. Looks like a billowy snow board jacket with super fabric on the arms. Pants - they look dangerous. Single layer "event" fabric on the butt? Seriously, that's all there is between your ass getting cheese grated at 75 miles an hour down the interstate, really Mosko? Single seam, single row of stitches in high impact areas - plus a snow boarder baggy fit - I don't get it. The pants were down right scary, you couldn't pay me to wear those for safety reasons alone forget about the weird cut. The jacket looks a little better with super fabric in the right places, but the cut was weird, overall way too basic for the price point. This stuff is no where near what Mosko standards typically are in design and quality. Bad first efforts here and a long way to go. Best part about the gear is the belt - that was perfect, so I kept it..

    Reference, I am 6'3", 230, typically wear 36 or 38 x 34 pants and XL jackets. My Klim Badlands is XL jacket and 38 long pants - fit is perfect. BTW - I have been a big fan of Mosko stuff - this gear is just not there yet - especially the pants, those are just damn scary to the objective eye. Much more work is needed here to get this gear up to a standard that matches the price point. A loooong way.

    Hi Shayne! We’re sorry the Basilisk didn’t work out for you. We’d love to take it back and send you a full refund if that hasn’t already happened. Glad you liked the belt! Fitment is a tricky thing, with so many different body sizes and shapes. In this case it sounds like some pieces were a little loose on you and others were a little snug, but if you went up a size that was way too big. That happens sometimes. Also, the type, thickness, and quantity of armor changes the fitment as well. Fitting riders at shows, we’ve found that the Basilisk fits some folks great and others not so great. Personally I love the fit, it’s not baggy on me at all. I’m 6’3”, 190lbs and wear a size large jacket, 32 pant, and medium Forcefield harness. We’ll continue refining and dialing in our sizing and fitment in future seasons. We chose that specific eVent Expedition 3L fabric because we think it strikes a good balance between abrasion, breathability, waterproofing, weight, and comfort. That said, we totally understand that some riders may wish we’d struck a different balance, going with a heavier/stiffer fabric, doubling-up the fabric in the butt, adding more leather, or sewing in a kevlar liner. In a 75 mph pavement cheese-grater slide on the interstate like the one you described, we’d probably all rather be wearing leather. Leather is tough to beat for sliding. Fortunately in the type of riding we do, most crashes happen on dirt and/or at ‘around town’ speeds, so they don’t involve a lot of sliding. If you like the comfort of a textile kit, you might consider pairing a textile outer layer (like the Basilisk or Badlands) with an inner protective short that covers your hips, thighs, and tailbone. Something like the Leatt 3DF short we sell, or one of the many other compression shorts on Revzilla. By combing an outer shell with an inner short, you can mix and match components to get the exact balance of safety, comfort, breathability, and weather resistance that works for you. Thanks for your support, and thanks for giving the Basilisk a try!

    TESTED!!! NO ROAD RASH FOR ME!!

    I will get straight to the point… my Basilisk jacket & pant combined with my Forcefield Pro armoured shirt/knee pads saved me from getting more severe injuries.
    A quiet paved side road, 10:30 am, sunny day, 35 mph. Out of no-where, a deer leaps out and hits my bike. That’s the last visual till I realise I’m on my back, severe pain left side & breathless. Bike was on its left side, down the road. I won’t t bore you with details of 6 ribs fractured, 1 surgery and ~10 days hospitalised... suffice to say the heroes were all the Loomis and Tonasket pro and volunteer emergency guys and gals that came to my rescue and the hospital staff that fixed me up… AND … the new Basilisk and Forcefield gear I was wearing! My Schuberth helmet cracked so many kudos to them also!
    Buddies said I cart wheeled and bike tumbled. I never did establish my trajectory. I certainly hit my left side hard and slid along the pavement.
    Back to my Basilisk gear. At the hospital, all the staff (myself included) were amazed I did not have a single bit of road rash… the jacket and pants took it all. I had only one bruise on my left butt where I did not have any armour.
    Less than 1 month in my MM & FF gear but still did over 1100 miles through a mix of weather and temps. Stayed dry in two down pours but more important was how cool I was in the Okanogan heat! All zippers open kept me comfy.
    I wanted to upgrade my gear. Most of the ADV gear is heavy and less flexible in varying weather and rides (touring vs FSRs) . I have lots of experience with layering for my back country skiing. I was stoked about Mosko Moto’s new gear lineup using the separate armour under the tough waterproof breathable top layer.
    Recommend to a friend … most definitely!
    Pros: Boom proof materials, excellent build quality, simple design (not dozens of pockets), lightweight and I like the layering concept
    Cons: No need for the zip leg option of the pant… where most of the damage to the pants occurred. More ref...
