Mosko Moto :: The Adventurer Has New Clothes

Mosko Moto new gear

Mosko Moto never sleeps, or so it seems. Their crew is either at work designing and improving adventure riding garments and gear, or out in the boonies testing it. Heather Lea has reviewed their Woodland luggage, and I recently covered tank bags, packs, and a few bits of clothing.

This time, it’s all about dressing for the ride. Mosko’s new and updated outerwear has you covered for whatever weather Mother Nature throws your way: sizzling, chilling or soggy.

To the Woods!

The original Woodsman Enduro in-the-boot pants ($329) get a better fit for 2023, including more room in the knee to accommodate larger knee braces and armor. Designed for enduro riding, and destined for dualsport and ADV work, they’re cut for comfort while standing, sitting, or any position in between. Mosko crafts the soak-prone knee and seat areas from Schoeller waterproof/breathable material. The uppers are a nylon fabric with a DWR coating to enhance air exchange. But their secret sauce is str-r-r-e-etch, so you can move freely on the bike. Knowing that some of us prefer our pants outside their boots, Mosko is introducing the outside-the-boot version of the Woodsman ($379). With this new version everyone can enjoy a Woodsman ride.

Be the First to Ride in New Mosko Moto Apparel

The following 5 items of Mosko Moto gear have yet to arrive on these shores. That’s where pre-ordering your chosen outfit comes in. Order now, and Mosko will have the garment to you by the end of 2022.

 

Mosko Surveyor Pant

Mosko Moto Surveyor PantA new model from Mosko, the Surveyor pant ($299) is based on the venerable Woodsman, but aimed at the trail rider. And like the Woodsman, it’s all-over stretchy. The Surveyor’s flexibility comes from stretch Cordura ripstop fabric, with ventilation at knees and seat courtesy of micro-mesh fabric. Made to wear in the boot over armor and knee braces, these pants are compatible with most anything you want to strap on for protection. And to make sure they last, Mosko covers high contact areas with leather.

Kiger MeshBeat the Heat with Kigers

Mosko’s new Kiger Mesh Pant ($379) has a short list of requirements: keep the rider cool and protected when the mercury climbs. To accomplish that, Mosko makes most of the Kiger from stretch micro-mesh, allowing the pant to breathe easily as you put on the miles. Your armor and knee braces will be right at home under these in-the-boot ventilators.

The Raks are Back, Better

Why wear waterproof gear all the time when you can have a set of Rak garments tucked away? Together, the Rak Pullover ($399) and Rak Overpant ($349) weigh about 4 pounds and stash in a corner of your luggage. When it gets too wet or cold, pull them out and ride on in comfort.
Moscko Moto Rak Pullover and Overpants
Mosko improved the Pullover with a few comfort mods, keeping the triple-layer waterproof, anorak-like construction and design intact. A removable hood will keep you drier off the bike, while a longer quarter-zip opening facilitates donning and doffing the jacket. And now the fully cut Pullover’s flapping can be controlled with Velcro Anti-Flap tabs. Possibly the best improvement is a whopper of a kangaroo pocket up front. A good place for hands if you’re chilling in camp, or storage en-route.

Mosko’s Rak Overpant also gets some tweaks. Made to put on when the rain starts, the pants now sport full-length, waterproof side zippers to make the operation fast and painless. Sewn from 3-layer breathable nylon eVent DV Expedition shell fabric, the Rak Overpant is both waterproof and windproof, perfect for extra warmth anytime. A single zippered cargo pocket on the thigh keeps your necessities at hand.

Mosko’s Ectotherm Kills the ChillMosko Moto electric puffer jacket, the Ectotherm

Returning with new colors is Mosko’s Ectotherm Insulated 12v Heated Jacket ($325). Think puffy jacket with electric heating elements. Cold weather doesn’t stand a chance against this high-tech wrapper. It’s warm in camp when unplugged, even warmer on the bike with electrons moving about. And the PrimaLoft Gold insulation keeps you warmer than down when compressed or wet.
