Too tight for the junk...!!

Sadly I had to return both the 36 and the 34 size. I tried the 36 and they were too big in the waist. So I returned them and got the 34 size. The 34 size fit me really strange. They fit in the waist but were just a bit tight in the seat (as I'm admittedly a bit plump buddunkahdonk 2 Live Crew in the posterior) but what's the deal with the crotch area? It's friggin' tight man...!! Most of your customers are grown men, not little boys you know what I'm sayin' ? And the legs were a little funky while putting on boots, a bit short and could be a bit more flared in order to get them over the boots easier. A zipper or snaps would be good there. The pants themselves are made really well and I really wanted to keep them but it just wasn't going to work out. However I kept the Basilisk jacket in Large. You guys nailed the sizing on that.

Basilisk Pants - Not for short people

This review is more on sizing than anything else. I really wanted to like these pants. But...

For measurements, my waist is 37" by measurement with a 28" inseam. Normally in jeans I wear a size 34. I ordered a 34 and a 36 in Basilisk as I was uncertain which would fit better. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the 34 was tight in the crotch and the 36 was much better. Reminds me of European fitting pants. For waist adjustment, there are two sets of snaps. With my measurements, the size 34 waist fits with the inner set of snaps while the size 36 fits with the outer set of snaps. And off course it comes with belt loops and an awesome belt.

The main issue I have with the pants are all the excess material in the legs. The inseam of both 34 and 36 pants are the same as per Mosko size chat. As can be seen in the attached picture, with my short inseam there are a lot of excess materiel which bunches up. Was not an issue as I walked around the house with them on until I climbed on my bikes. With motocross boots on and a pair of knee guards, the fit on the lower leg was fairly tight and I was not able to slide the material down. Where it bunches up is exactly where my knees would squeeze the tank in both seated and standing position. I was surprise that the excess materiel actually caused pressure points on the inside of my knees when I squeezed the tank. I have worn Klim, Alpinestars, Firstgear, Aerostich, and Scorpion textile/leather pants and jeans where there were also excess material and never had this issue before. I have also tried Leatt dual axis knee guards as well as 7iDP knee guard (similar to Forcefield Pro Tube) and pressure points persist in both cases. With the exact same knee protection setups with my Klim pants on and the pressure points were gone, so it's not the knee guards. The vent zipper on the inside of the knee in conjunction with the super fabric creates a fairly stiff combination where the bunching is happening, which is what I suspect as the root cause.

Like I said, really wanted to like the pants. The quality of the material is excellent, the zippers are sublimed, construction is first rated. I am pretty sure the breathability and the waterproofness would be quite good, but as I only tested it on my bikes in the garage, can't really verify that. The fit for an inseam challenged dude sucks. And for the price of these pants, I should not be settling.

The return was very smooth. Being from Canada, Mosko was true to their word and paid for return shipping when I scanned them a copy of the receipt. But because it is an international shipping return, an automatic shipping label was not created. However, as soon as I contact the Mosko customer support team, it was sorted out.

BASILISK PANTS

Update to original Review,....posted below this review,....
NOTHING has changed on my original review, in fact these pants are very comfortable, besides being a bit snug in the groin but not uncomfortably so.
THE ISSUE YOU HAVE TO WATCH FOR IS THE SUPER FABRIC IN THE KNEES WHEN SITTING IT WILL FOLD, STICKS OUT, AND RUBS DIRECTLY ON YOU PAINT, ITS LIKE SAND PAPER AND WILL F*** YOUR PAINT UP QUICK IF YOU KEEP YOUR KNEES TUCKED IN TIGHT. I HAVE TWO SPOTS ON EACH SIDE OF MY 2004 KTM 950 ADVENTURE (BLUE) TANKS THAT ON A SHORT RIDE (ABOUT 70 MILES) YESTERDAY THE PAINT WAS SCRACHED PRETTY BAD A BIT BIGGER THAN A GOLF BALL, REAL BUMMER !!! ONE KNEE SEEMS TO TUCK THE SUPER FABRIC BETTER THAN THE OTHER AND SCRATCHED LIGHTLY BUT MY RIGHT KNEE THE FABRIC STICKS STRAIGHT OUT INTO THE TANK. SO IM GOING TO DROP MY RATING ONLY BASED ON THIS, ALL ELSE AS STATED BELOW IS AWESOME !! I THINK THE KNEE VENT NEEDS TO BE REWORKED OR SOMETHING, THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF LAYERS THERE, LOVE THE VENT BUT HATE WHAT IT DOES WHEN BENT. BOTTOM LINE IF YOUR INSIDE KNEE IS TUCKED IN TIGHT TO A PAINTED PANEL/TANK/ECT. IT WILL F*** IT UP.
Not only are the pants awesome, but the people make them even better !! bought a 38 waist size and they were a bit loose. got a 38 belt along with them, and could cinch it down with no issue to the last hole on the belt, so a bit big. so some comparisons, i wear a 38x32/34 pant in levis, some carhart, and mountain khakis, all not tight but snug enough to stay up. my actual waist measurement is 41 inches, my actual inseam is 33 inches, somewhat short for just shy of 6'2". the 38 pant would drop in the back in a slight squat with the buttons snapped in the second position and the belt cinched all the way up. the inseam was perfect, even in a squat they didn't rise much.
i was bummed and a bit freaked out as BrAap friday was coming up quick, was worried i would not get the 36 talls i would need because the return process would push a bit past the sale start ( bought mine before the sale), packed them back up, printed my RA, and sent an email expressing my concern, got a phone call the next day by Sammy, She was able to help me out so that i was able to get the 36 talls, just awesome, there are very few companies left who have people who really want to help someone, just awesome, thank you !!
got the 36 talls today, super fast shipping every time i have ever ordered from Mosko. they fit perfect, length is great they rise just a bit but still will cover my boots sitting, are very comfortable, not too thick and stiff. again my waist is 41 inches, my inseam is 33 inches and my thighs are 26 inches in the middle, the 36 tall is where its at !! love the quality and the thought put into these pants. go over a sidi crossfire 3TA's boot perfect, and plenty of room for armour. so for me they run a bit big and had to size down, but it was a painless process with an awesome team to help me making really great gear. i have ridden predominantly dirt for 42 years and always wore separate "armor" and am VERY happy with this gear

Basilisk Pant

After spending way too many months reading reviews on every. single. pant option out there to replace an older pair of Kilm I decided to order the Basilisk and, YES! Right out the package I could tell I landed on the right choice. They fit like a glove for me, checked all my boxes (waterproof and all season - I can fit a pair of fleece pants under), have more vents then anything I’ve seen and seem insanely well made. I can’t wait to put them through the paces this winter and spring. I have faith they’ll hold up for a long time. I’m 5’9 and around 155lbs - ordered the 32 regular I believe and they’re spot on.

Basilisk Pant

Size Guide >

Refined for our second production round, 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 armor systems for superior protection and versatility.

The Basilisk is both 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 waterproof 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. The leg openings are adjustable too, with waterproof internal gussets and overlapping velcro flaps.
