Body armor is very personal: you have to find the kit that fits your specific body shape and riding style. For us, this is it. We love the Forcefield ADV harness because it’s simply the best moldable, soft-armor pressure suit we’ve ever seen. There’s nothing else like it. You can wear this kit for years on both singletrack and ADV trips, crashing over and over in it, and simply spraying it off with a hose when it’s dirty.
In that brief second of awareness when you realize you’re flying over the handlebars: this is the armor you’ll be glad to have on.

MoskoMoto were excellent to deal with I was lucky enough to meet them at the International Motorcycle Show in NY. Saw there gear and went home and ordered the Forcefield Harness and the Basilisk jacket. By spring in hope to have ordered some back country panniers I ride a KLR 650
I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because I have yet to ride with the EX-K Flite. It's December, it's Wisconsin, we have had a few ridable days recently but holidays and all... I don't know how it will actually work when I'm on the bike. However, I thought some initial impressions were worth putting up because this feels like a great armor set. I bought my Aerostich Darien jacket without a back pad, and have been using a Forcefield back protector instead because I didn't like any of the Aerostich back armor options. Having ridden with that back protector for a couple years, I think Mosko make a good point about separate armor - you're more mobile, jackets feel less cumbersome, you can use the armor to any jacket you have, and the armor layer is tightly strapped to your body so it doesn't move in a crash. My wife, who dislikes bikes but doesn't want me to get hurt in while riding one, insisted I buy the Forcefield kit after I told her about it.
I'm 6'1", 200 lb, 44" chest, 36" waist, 19" back length. I bought the EX-K Flite in Large, which feels like it fits well on me after a couple adjustments. The Flite fits well under my Darien jacket, and will fit even better once I remove the Aerostich shoulder pads and start using the Forcefield pads. As noted, the Forcefield padding feels stiff until it warms up, after which it becomes more flexible. The suit feels sort of bulky when first put on, yet I can in fact turn and twist and move quite nicely. I'm looking forward to getting in some rides with this new gear. It feels like solid torso protection.
This flexible system works well and the fit and finish are excellent. I’ve used both touring type jackets w integrated protection/armor and hard plastic mesh shirt type Leitt upper body protection under jersey systems and neither worked well all around for me when riding on BDR type trips. This Mosko Moto under jersey or under jacket system seems to be an excellent middle ground. More pro then a klim jacket but less bulky then the Leitt full upper hard plastic system. I love it.
Love all the gear I have purchased from Mosko. They put a lot of thought into everything they make.
After a few friends owned this armor, and trying it on more than once, I finally decided to purchase and haven’t regretted it for one moment. I’m a small rider with a petite build, 5’2” 130lbs, and was stuck wearing big armored jackets for off road riding (a nightmare in my hot, humid home state!). This armor has changed my riding experience, and already been put to the test on a hard pack road.
It fits perfectly, has adjustments in all the right places that are easy to use. This company is seriously doing something right.
