Basilisk Pant


The Basilisk Pant is our incredibly waterproof, incredibly 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 Pant is designed to work with separate armor systems for superior protection and better versatility.

(Stock of this style is limited as this item will not be replenished. Our new Basilisk IR Pant with integrated / removable Rheon™ armor is now available.)


The Basilisk Pant 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 pant we have come across and has the highest waterproof ratings we've ever seen.

Version 2.5 improves weather protection at the fold-back thigh vents by relocating the zippers, including double external storm flaps and additional internal guttered construction to greatly improve weather resistance in the heaviest rains while maintaining maximum ventilation.

On the knees, we added Super Fabric® ceramic platelets on a 600D waterproof/breathable overlay for added strength and durability. With double-layer fabric, you can crash repeatedly and still stay dry. Our zippers are top-of-the-line water-resistant YKK VISLON® AquaGuard®: they won’t clog with dust and grime and are easy to operate one-handed with gloves. Two cargo pockets on the upper thigh keep your essentials close at hand or provide quick stash options when off the bike.

To keep you cool, there are six vents: two knee scoop vents, two fold-back thigh vents, and two large exhaust vents behind the leg. Open all the vents in hot weather and let the cooler outside air envelop your upper thigh.

On the inside, we eliminated hanging liners entirely, reducing weight, bulk, and heat. Laminated patches protect the tricot lining in high abrasion areas like the knees and lower leg. The leg openings are cut extra wide to allow for plenty of room to fiddle with and adjust your boots. And they’re adjustable, too, with waterproof internal gussets and overlapping Velcro flaps.

So far so good, they fit well and are comfortable in the high 40's. No drafts through the zippers. Haven't tested waterproofing yet.

The only riding pants I need

Purchased these in November 2023. Compared to the 2020 version (Size 32, regular length), the waist is a little roomier than the 2022, the knees are way roomier almost too bulky, and the pants are a little longer. The bulky knees I understand but, even with braces I wish they were a bit slimmer. But, I like my pants slim and tight, so your mileage may vary. The inside knee vents have also been updated from 2020, and no longer catch and snag on my tank when I ride. As far as functionality, these are flawless pants. I've ridden them in dry hot Texas weather, all vents open and never noticed them. Also worn them in 18ºF misty weather, highway speeds, kept me completely dry and warm (with a few layers underneath). And, ridden in constant heavy rain for 2 hours in 40ºF weather, completely dry and warm. Be sure to read Mosko's care instructions page about washing and retreating the DWR. I think that will help these pants stay waterproof for a very long time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review for our Basilisk Pants, Fred! We're glad they work for you in such a wide variety of weather conditions.


These pants are excellent. Used them on a trip in Iceland with "ride with locals". Lot's of off road, water crossings, rain, cold, and wind. Worked really well with layers. Kept me dry and warm at all times.

Great service!

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 👌

Pro: Lightweight and somewhat stretchy. VERY comfortable. Rain resistent - to a point. I have not used them in like a flooded environment, but in enough rain to make Noah start boarding. Lots of vents. I used them in 35 degrees C and felt as comfortable as you would expect. I effing love them.
Cons: Too long for us, who are vertically challenged. Please stop using long, slim, good looking guys as models only. Find a - let’s say - middle height, chubby, ugly person. I know the perfect candidate. Contact me for information and price.
