Mosko had been working on this for a while and say they will have stock in about three weeks for sale.

Clockwise from the blue Signal riding jersey ($59); Forcefield Pro Shirt ($279; meant to be worn under jacket); Basilisk jacket ($599) and pant ($499); Deluge rain suit with eVent material/pant combo where it can be worn over your pants or under your jacket for wind/rain protection ($299 jacket, $249 pant); Imbricate base layer (not shown; $39) with four way stretch and anti-microbial, seamless.

The Basilisk pant comes with a really cool real leather belt called the Autotomous they also sell separately that I’d love to get my hands on ($?).
 
My impression is that these are all top quality stuff. Mosko is known for soft luggage so why should we trust a new line of clothing? The answer seems to be in the years of r&d they’ve done and countless iterations.
 
I tried on the Basilisk jacket and am very impressed. Great venting, packs light and small, super high end water proof and breathable fabrics, the best zippers, etc...
 
Seems ideally suited for enduro much more than touring so small to big bike segments.
 
I’m thinking kind of like if Klim and Leatt had a hot interlude at Burning Man and this is their hip post-modern love child

I like the protection of my Leatt armor but have to remove the armor from my Klim jacket if I want that as a cover. I have Leatt’s jacket too but haven’t used it much yet. I really like the colors too. Klim’s black with a patina of dust is my favorite color but sometimes it’s nice not to look like everyone else.

So much more comfortable when riding technical terrain with armor and a jersey. When I do this I bring a light pull over rain jacket. Combination works well. Starting off cold in the morning is a good rule because you warm up pretty quickly throughout the day and ride. Mix of Adv riding gear and MX gear are good options. I do prefer the protection of Klim gear when on the road and in between camping spots.

I'm really excited for the gear to get out into the wild. I think the thing that excited me the most is the e vent material. I want to know if it's as good as Pete says it is. Haha

Checked out all their gear at the recent Seattle meetup at the Wick/Motoshed. The new apparel is nice. Fit and quality is good. I typically wear XL Klim jackets. The Basilisk XL jacket was a good fit but wouldn’t accommodate under armor. The pants are a little unusual with the zippered extensions on the legs. Gives another 2” of length but really seemed like a cost cutting measure to avoid making tall versions but adding costs/complexity to normal. Seems like most people would never use; either leave extended or normal. Overall, nice stuff but not something I need or would want to pay the asking price.

All the Mosko crew (and Double take) were great. Super knowledgable and helpful. Going to be ordering a Reckless 10 for my 350.

So I've actually talked to Mosko about the pants legs and I guess it was a decision they made because it was easier to carry one length and then multiple waists because of manufacturing and accountability. This was also before they hired an actual clothing guy. They realize the zipper will only really be used one time so they are hoping the next run they can do different inseam lengths too. I'm sure there is more to it than that but that's what I remember.

I've got my set of the Basilik riding gear in and it's awesome! I'll have it at high sierra at the end of the month if anyone wants to check it out!

That's cool!  Would love to see it!

It'll also be sized for us XL adventurers too! I'll also have the forcefield armor to check out as well. The ex-k harness is pretty dang awesome too.
