Get In These Pants: Mosko Moto’s New Woodsman Enduro Riding Pant

Mosko Moto rolled out new riding pants last month that’s “either a ‘touring pant you can trail-ride in,’ or a ‘trail-riding pant you can tour in,’ depending on your perspective.”

They call it a 90% pant because 90% of the time it’s exactly what you need. Between its durability and versatility, the Woodsman really is everything you need. Unless, of course, you’re going for the capri look when your boots are off, as the Woodsman is a full-length pant. 

The Woodsman is a technical soft-shell pant for enduro riding. It’s just as at home on tight Northwest woods single track as it is in the open desert or on extended ADV trips. The hybrid design puts a Schoeller waterproof/breathable material on the knees and seat for protection from wet brush, wet seats, and water crossings, while the DWR coated nylon oxford upper provides excellent breathability.

Like all things at Mosko, the Woodsman went through some extensive research and development that you can read about in the brand’s blog post.

“In the end we decided the Woodsman should be an in-boot pant with lots of vents, with a waterproof-windproof-breathable layer in the knees, thighs, and butt, and a stretchy DWR-treated work-pant material everywhere else. They’re tough, breathable, and very comfortable. This is a pant you can wear off the bike as well, around camp, or on your way to the trailhead.”

The Woodsman is cut to be worn over your armor and takes its technical design from ski touring and alpine gear. I personally like Mosko’s suggestion that this can be the minimalist’s only pair of pants on a multi-day trip and I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair to test that theory out.
