REVIT Poseidon Jacket

Are there no boundaries to your sense of adventure? Are you always pushing yourself to your limits? Then the REV'IT! Poseidon GORE-TEX Jacket will suit you just fine. It feels lightweight, but appearances are deceptive as this jacket’s rugged outer shell is made for riding in extreme conditions.

It has a very low water pickup and is 100 percent waterproof as the membrane is laminated to the outer shell. The innovative VCS | Aquadefence with FidLock® magnetic fastener system offers excellent on-demand ventilation and can be closed with one hand while riding due to the FidLock magnetic fastener. The FidLock magnetic fastener not only uses the attraction but also the repulsion of magnets. This leads to a robust closure with high locking strength that can still be easily opened with one hand while riding. With CE-certified protection, reflective panels, collar hook, connection zippers and the possibility to adjust the fit and the option to upgrade the jacket with a Challenger cool vest and HV Connector vest—this jacket offers the complete package.

REV'IT! Poseidon GTX Jacket 4.5 5 17 17
Would Buy it Again I have just returned from a 9,700mi trip from Houston Texas to Skagway Alaska. Overall, I was very pleased with the performance of the Poseidon jacket. SIZING: I am 5'10" 145lb Girl, when buying men's stuff I am typically a "small" in shirt sizes. I went with a Medium jacket based on the length of my arms and it fits very well. The sleeves do seem smallish in diameter for men's wear, I have very slender arms and find that the sleeves fit very well, I am towards the end of the adjustment range #small end# but if you were any kind of bicep built, I could see these sleeves, with the thermal liner in, being a tad snug. However, I'm a slender girl and not a buff guy and so I consider the slender sleeves a plus and was part of why I chose the REV'it jacket over the Klim Badlands Pro. The REV'it line reviews all tended toward a slimmer fit and the Klim suit tended toward baggy. So, the medium Poseidon jacket fits a tall slender girl about as well as I could hope, the sleeves are perfect in length and not at all baggy. Excellent fit for me. The neck is a bit large, even on the tightest snap setting it was more like a cru neck shirt than a turtle neck jacket, but small girl in a man's jacket... FUNCTIONALITY: Waterproofness: I had about two weeks of all day everyday rainy riding. This was not a Texas downpour but a good soaking persistent spitty rain. I was never wet under the jacket. Very pleased with waterproofness. I ride an R100GS which has very minimal fairing protection but my larger windshield keeps the wind off of my chest. My arms are fairly exposed to the windblast but water was never forced through the sleeves and my arms stayed dry. #on my last 10K mi trip I had a rain suit and its weak point was the arms would eventually soak through#. The jacket seems to dry fast after an all day rain. I just could never complain about being wet underneath it. Closures: No zipper troubles to speak of or anticipate. The Velcro however very quickly lost it tenacity. This was a 5.5 week trip of in and out of the pockets many times a day and now sometimes I look down and the flap over is flapping in the wind. The gauntlet Velcro also caught a lot of use as I want the cuffs tight around my wrists while riding but then need to loosen them to get the jacket off. I started using the gauntlet zipper to do this instead of the Velcro to keep from wearing it out. Aside from the Velcro, everything seems to be wearing nicely, nothing is pealing off or tearing. The jacket does loosen up and break in. The Velcro flap over the main zipper is holding up very well and is just a tenacious on my long blonde hair as new after a long trip. The slide snap, hook and loop collar adjustment is for the birds. The hook and loop to hold the collar open is a joke. The sliding snap is clever but doomed to fail, just give me three snaps to choose from. #snap collar much better than Velcro for anyone with hair long enough to catch collar velcro#. Pockets: My last jacket was the most impressive collection of pockets I have ever encountered, LOVE chest pockets. The Poseidon however has only the two flap over front pockets to choose from. I never learned to use the rabbit pouch in the back. Pockets are big enough for wallet n stuff, didn't have an issue with space but the flap over style pocket is the most annoying to get in and out of but by no means a deal breaker. The hand warmer pockets are a must have! Where else do you put your hands while walking the campground?? they are not good for holding anything though, stuff in the hand warmer pocket falls right out, strictly just from hands. Ventilation: I live in southern Texas. All vents open and I stay very comfortable in Houston heat and humidity. I can work every vent snap and zipper while riding with a gloved hand no problem, even the back vent zipper. The linerless jacket is surprisingly not too hot even just walking around. I think gortex really must breath. Warmth: That fluffy thermal liner compresses small and is very warm. On the all day cold rainy days I had on a long sleeve shirt, pull over sweater and the jacket+liner and was comfortable.#I had to stuff the neck hole to keep the chill out#. Never too cold and never too hot and NEVER wet. Bang for Buck: Let's agree, stupid expensive jacket, but I bought one and would buy it again. 'tis the nature of motorcycle and rider farkling. Style: I feel like a million bucks in my REV'it coat, which I think is important. Last trip I had the trash baggy rain suit and felt a littly trash baggy on rainy days. I have the white coat and black Aerostich AD1 pants and randos frequently stopped me to tell me I looked very smartly suited up. One of the best looking jackets on the market IMHO. August 19, 2015
Outstanding jacket Ive used this (and th pants) exploring Malaysia (hot n humid) and found the jacket warm but still with good ventilation. I took the jacke on a three week tour of S Island New Zealand on a GS. Weather was very mixed with ots orain, hail, snow and very windy. Jacket and pants combo worked brillianty. Because the temps ranged from 2d Celcuis upto around 17 I road with linerin all the time and just managed temp with all the vents. Brilliant system. Never got wet, not even damp and temperature control worked very well indeed. I had one incident on a gravel road where I fell heavily onright shoulder and back. The protection worked. No damage to me (despite having broken collar bone a few years ago) except some bruising and dented pride. Jacket was untouched,no evidence of gravel slide. Awesome product. December 4, 2014
Best all around jacket I've owned I replaced my Rev'it Sands 2 suit with the Poseidon this year and am extremely happy with that decision. I always found the 3 layer design of the Sand a bit complicated, and while there are many types of waterproof fabric, there is only ONE gore-tex and no real substitute in terms of breath-ability. i just completed a 1200 mile test ride with temps ranging from 38-72 degrees and never found myself hot or cold by utilizing the thermal layers and vents as needed. It does seem to be cut a bit larger than other Rev'it gear, so while I found I needed a size L in the Sands or Airwave Jacket, it felt big on me in the Poseidon where I settled with a Medium November 18, 2014
This product is the perfect fit and comfort I was looking for. Just returned home from a three day 1500 mile trip. Temperature range from 42-80 degrees. Jacket was warm in the morning and cool in the afternoon with liner removed and vents open. Can't wait to try out in the rain. This product will be perfect for my trip to Newfoundland via Trans Labrador Highway next summer. September 29, 2014
Great Jacket great jacket, have had it in some downpour rain and stay warm. My favorite part is that i can leave in the liner even in temps up to 75 degrees with the vents open. I like to leave the liner in since my morning rides are typically around 40 degrees and afternoon around 70 degrees, this fits the bill perfectly August 4, 2014
Did exactly what I bought it for Bought this suit for a European tour in the alps over the past two weeks. This suit was put through everything I could think of barring snow and hail. Kept me warm and dry through hours and hours of hard rain. Pay attention to how your Velcro and thermal liners line up when zipping, if you don't the zipper is exposed and you'll end up with a cold and wet spot. The vents on the chest do not work with high windshields as the wind is blocked. The armour also took a while to soften up but not a big issue. If you want a suit to tour in and keep you comfy in the harsher elements, this will fit the bill nicely. I love it and will be wearing it for years to come. July 16, 2014
Happy with my purchase I'm quite happy with my purchase of the Poseidon Jacket. So far it's seen pretty cold temps (23°f) and pretty warm temps (95+°f). My only issue in the warm is my bike (ST1300) blocks a lot of the 'core' air where the venting of this jacket is, so I get quite warm. I can't fault the suit 100% for this. The inverse of that, is in cool/cold weather riding my bike blocks a lot of air. I up-sized both the jacket and pants so I can wear this over my work clothes. The pants are still borderline too tight but usable over jeans without the liner. Wearing jeans with the liner would probably not be possible/comfortable. I've been in one downpour rainstorm, and other than forgetting about the exhaust vents on the pant seams, I stayed completely dry under the suit (non waterproof gloves of course got wet). I was in the rain for maybe 20 minutes. For the 3 months or so I've had this Jacket (and pants) I do not see any noticeable wear or any indicators that might become issues in the near future, but of course time will tell. I've not been down in them, so I cannot comment on protection/durability. Protection seems quite good, but as of yet is untested. For reference, I've probably put close to 3k miles on the suit July 15, 2014

Piers M: Technical features. Four season and good ventilation Oct 5, 2015
Greg C: Good reviews. Friend recommended this item. Oct 5, 2015
Steven C: Got the pants a few weeks and absolutely love them. Had to get the jacket, too! Jan 21, 2015
VICTOR M: Had previous Revit jackets and while overall quality is good to excellent, the zippers could be better, sturdier. Otherwise the jacket works well on hot days with the venting open, and also when it rains and is cold with the included liner. For this price the back protector should be included, in my opinion.

A shopper asked: having trouble deciding on a jacket. I like the toned down look of the gtx however it seems the Klim badlands Pro is more ventilated. I live in san diego so I'm more concerned with warm weather riding then I am about cold. Which would you consider a better option fro warm weather riding?

other options possibly?

Ryan G asked: I live in CA, summers here are often 100 degrees and I'm the city there is a lot of waiting at stoplights (no airflow). How does this jacket perform in the heat? Oct 17, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James A: I live in DE and our summers will often hover in the 90's with heat indexes well above 100°. I picked the off-white version because it is cooler out in the sun. Too many bikers bake in black. You do get hot, especially if you have a full fairing, stuck in traffic in a state where there is no lane splitting, BUT the integrated Gore-Tex shell is absolutely the best! I am so done with waterproof liners. With some high performance wicking undergarments perspiration is kept to a minimum. I open up all the vents and unzip the sleeve cuff to scoop in air and push out the heat. Works well with a pair of Sand Pro gloves. Behind the fairing the front vents actually flow in reverse! Stand up and they work as intended. One can actually cool off . Add a HyperKewl and you will chill in any heat. Coupled with the lack of bulk and light weight, I will admit this is the 1st year I have been 100% ATGATT. Love my Poseidon. Didn't even get out my mesh jacket this year. Oct 18, 2015

Daniel R: Ha, you asked the right guy. I live right outside NYC and have the same or worse traffic. The jacket is phenomenal in 90+ degrees on my K1600GT. Open all the vents and the jet puffs up full of air as soon as you begin to move. Without the liner it's pretty light weight, yet water proof. Pants, not as good, but jacket is a virtual tornado. The vents on my K1600 pump the air right into the chest vents. Not sure what you're riding but if the airflow hits the chest vents your golden. In dead stopped traffic this summer 94 degree day it took about 1/2 an hour before it got uncomfortable. Oct 17, 2015
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew M: I would not recommend this for 100 degree weather. Its upper limits are in the

I recommend something more mesh oriented for CA summer times, this would be better for late fall and winter in your area.

Other then that its an excellent jacket for what it is, a no nonsense 4ish seasons touring jacket.

I would look at the Sand 2 jacket, I hade one before it was stolen and am considering one again for a summer touring jacket that still has the adaptability to worn in dry cooler climate> The venting on the Sand 2 is excellent.

Gavin D: I live in Vancouver, BC. Summers here get up to about 28-30 degrees C, at the most; higher (mid to high 30s) inland, of course. At a stoplight/ complete stand-still, the Poseidon is hot, even with all the vents open. The arm vents on my jacket did not do a great job of clearing stale, hot air until I was moving around 50-60 kph. The chest vents were effective at around 30-40 kph. Oct 17, 2015

Frank R: This is a great jacket, probably the best I have ever worn and I have been comfortable riding in 85 degree weather on the open road. That said this is probably not the jacket to wear if you don't have good airflow in 100 degree heat the jacket is fairly heavy and without good airflow I think you will be too hot. Oct 18, 2015

tom d: I would not recommend this for those high temps. If it is above 75 degrees ,I wear my old Rev'it GT Air jacket . If I know I will be going through some rain or it's below 70F I always wear it. I would highly recommend this jacket for cooler or wetter weather. Tom Oct 17, 2015

Mike H: Alone it doesn't do well above 90 degrees because of the dark color and robust materials, but combined with a cooling vest it works great! The vents really move air and makes 100 degrees feel like 85 especially in low humidity. Oct 19, 2015

sean e: This is not a jacket for SoCal. It does move air well however it doesn't rain enough. I had this in San Diego and while it wasn't bad for the most part. When it gets hot and you're stopped you are goi g to sweat a lot Oct 19, 2015

A shopper asked: can the magnet be removed or taken off of the jacket ? Dec 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James A: Could the magnet(s) be removed? The jacket is so well made and sealed (Gore-Tex warranted) that I suspect any attempt remove the magnets would destroy it.
The magnetic fid lock is such a great feature (once you get the hang of it) that one can literally unzip and 'slap the flap' while on the fly without looking and with next to no distraction.
I understand that some people may have magnetically sensitive medical device implants and do have a seriously valid concern. While not definitive, to help as much as I can, I just tested the fid lock magnets with a various steel washers. The only attraction I could find was on the outside latching surfaces, no magnetic attraction was found on the inside even immediately under the fid mounts (no liner). That said, while one definitely does not want to end up "reprogramming" their pacemaker or pain pump, if I was in such a situation I would take the jacket to my Specialist for a test, but that's me. It is really a great jacket and the fid lock is great. -James

Harry D C: Hello Fellow Motorcyclist,

The magnet can not be removed. It is there to hold the flap back for the air vent that is on each side of the jacket. Bye the way, the air flow system works great.
Greatest riding gear I have purchased to date. My second set of Rev'it riding
gear the 1st I bought in 2006. It has been greatly improved.

there are only 2 magnets, one for each breast pocket. Not sure you'd want to as it makes it very easy to use while riding with gloves

Lee T asked: Revzilla's description first says this is 3-layer Goretex and below that says it's 2-layer Goretex. As far as I know, you can't have it both ways - it's either/or.

Anyone know if this is a misprint and what it is?
Jul 3, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James A: Hey Lee T, I suspect you can have both ways. In the beefed-up sections Rev'it uses 3 layer and everywhere else 2 layer. From RVZ's webpage - you probably just missed it:

3L at elbows and shoulders for higher durability
2L at body of the jacket is softer and more flexible

I looked at my jacket and that seems to be the case, but one cannot tell for sure without dissecting it.

jason r: The Poseidon is two-layer - it is pretty clear if you hold the jacket open and look through the mesh. Also, if you have it side by side with the Dominator there would be no doubt as to the difference. The Poseidon's fabric is thinner and lighter. Jul 8, 2015
Reply to jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Lee T: Thanks for that Jason, sometimes these things are hard to sort out. A previous reply stated that it's 3 layers in hard wear areas and 2 layers in the rest. Holding the jacket open and looking through the mesh is a good way to figure it out for sure. As I research this further it seems that everything has a price - a true 3 layer jacket (and particularly a 3-layer Gore Tex Pro) is going to be heavier and hotter as well as more expensive but in an all-day, relentless rain a 2 layer garment will eventually start to leak. Jul 8, 2015
Gavin T asked: What is the recommended method for washing and maintaining the Jacket? I've used Nikwax Tech Wash for my Dainese Goretex jacket and it's worked well so far. Will this be suitable for the Grey Fabric too (i've heard Nikwax might cause the colors in the fabric to leech out. Jul 23, 2014

James A: -When I initially tried on my Poseidon I was concerned it was too small.
I might not be able to get my heated vest on underneath along with my winter clothes. I was used to cheaper, heavier, baggier gear, not a tailored, nice fitting piece of equipment. While my Widder vest fits, I haven't needed it yet. After several multi-hour long trips at and below freezing temps, I never get cold. The Rev'it liner with the better integrated GoreTex is impressive. I have had GoreTex lined and waterproofed jackets before, but this jacket continues to impress.
-On hot days I was concerned it might be too big/loose without winter gear underneath.
The side synchs are the best I have used, far better than the simple belt types that cut you in half, creasing the main zipper and causing the bottom to ballon out like a skirt. Haven't missed not having a bottom zipper yet and the thinner YKK main zipper is far more flexible than the bulky, stiff Vislon zips I am used to. It does not ride up or 'pitch a tent' below. Up to 90°F (so far) with the vents open and a thin, long sleeve cotton shirt underneath. I get hot when not moving but never sweating hot (bought the white one mind you and color makes a big difference). We are into summer temps now and I have yet to get out my mesh jacket (which is heavier BTW). One of my bikes is a Gold Wing, so the chest vents only work on this when I stand to catch some air. I was skeptical about the small, partially covered back vent, but with the upright riding position of the Wing and smaller summer gloves, I can tune the air intake through the sleeves and the cooling is amazing with the jacket pressurizing (but not ballooning) the chest vents actually work in reverse behind the big fairing allowing more heat to escape. Open the forearm vents to bleed off some air pressure at extra high speeds. Fantastic.
-I now weigh 138#, 5'-8" with a 38" chest and a 32" waist and the Poseidon fits great with adjustment room for your 16" biceps. Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: Does anyone know if MD will be the smallest size this jacket will be available in? I could've sworn I saw smaller sizes but after checking recently they've been removed. Oct 22, 2013

Shashank M: Yes, MD is the smallest size for this jacket. I am myself in need of a SM and emailed Revit EU, they informed me that the jacket will not be made in SM size. I guess the only option for me now is to get a Klim. Dec 3, 2013

Greg F asked: The specs say that this will take a Seesoft Type RV. The Seesoft fitment table doesn't list Poseidon yet. What size(s) of RV will these take? In my case, I need it for a large. Thanks. Oct 19, 2013

Shashank M: Per Revit website, you would need size 5 with all large Revit textile jackets. http://www.revit.eu/en/#/products/FPB003 Dec 3, 2013
