Basilisk Jacket 2023

Cadmium Red

The Basilisk Jacket is 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.

Pair with the Basilisk Pant to complete the kit.


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), 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. We added storm flaps to all external zippers to improve the Basilisk 2.0’s ability to shed water. 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 are 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 offers better protection and 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 with limited airflow.
  • 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.

100% Waterproof

DV Expedition, eVent's burliest waterproof membrane, provides the ultimate in durability and all-weather protection. Delivering dry comfort in the widest range of conditions and providing the greatest waterproof protection without sacrificing air permeability. At its best when the conditions are at their worst.

SuperFabric® Abrasion Panels

SuperFabric® is created by taking a 600d polyester base fabric and infusing tiny hard guard plates into the fabric. These guard plates have small gaps between each plate, keeping the SuperFabric® flexible for maximum comfort and protection.

Excellent quality

Tried and tested and vaunted product, i was even more stoked to have gotten it at a sale price for a previous season's piece. Will put it through its paces in ladakh in a few months' time!

Matthew Van Oostdam

Got the Basilisk on sale and am very happy with how well it balances safety for on road use while also being vented and breathing wheel for on trail use when moving fast or transitioning trail types.

Light, easy to put on/off and it’s protective.

Fit is great. Size is just as described in the sizing chart and it’s cut so my armor fits well underneath. Like all the Mosko gear I have, the Basilisk jacket is truly an awesome piece of gear. High quality materials, great fit and finish and it just plain works. Go ahead and buy the cheap stuff, but you get what you pay for. I have never been disappointed with anything from Mosko Moto.
