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 body systems for superior protection and versatility.
The Basilisk is 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 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 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. By opening the calf expansion zippers, tall people can add an additional 2” to the inseam – increasing it from 32” to 34.” The leg openings are adjustable too, with waterproof internal gussets and overlapping Velcro flaps.

I though you’re gear was made in USA. Disappointed in the Bangladesh label on the basilisk and the very cheap made in China drybags. I would pay more for made in USA. Who knows what kids made this stuff.
If you’re looking for well thought design, tough construction and complete functionality, then buy Mosko.
Top Quality Team-real life
I've had these for about a month now, and I have been very happy with them. They are well constructed, made of quality materials, have terrific ventilation, and most importantly they are very comfortable. A couple of nit picking items: 1) the small waist closure clasp fell off of my pants the very first time I put them on. This piece is totally inadequate for pants that are otherwise so well constructed. 2) The zipper extension to make the pants longer is clunky. I bought these pants because I have abnormally large calves, and when they are in a moto boot it is an even bigger issue. Most pants I've worn are too tight in this area, and the Mosko's just barely work due to all the extra fabric rolled up in the zipper section. I understand why Mosko did it this way, to avoid having to manufacture a long version of the pant, but it is bulky and not overly attractive in a closed or extended state.
If you can live with both of those issues, then don't hesitate to buy these.
I have had the Basilisk pants for one year now and have rode in them in every season here in Colorado, including the COBDR and during the summer in Moab.
These are the best pant I have ever owned! They have kept me warm and dry in the winter and have kept me nice and cool in the summer. My riding partners have a number of different other brands that cost significantly more, and while they are super hot or adding layers they look at me jealously... all I do is open or close some zippers. I have crashed multiple times in the backcountry and the pants have Performed and survived flawlessly! These are the pants you want! Way to go Mosko Moto!
