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.

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.

Rev-It appear to be losing the plot...
To be clear I returned the Poseidon jacket & pants prior to wearing them on my motorcycle. For reference, I have owned four different Rev-It Jacket / Pant combinations since the brand first became available in the US. My Rev-it Product experiences and overall satisfaction have generally been excellent.

I currently wear a Cayenne Pro suit for dual sport use and a Defender GTX suit for road work. The only area where the defender GTX suit is superior to the Cayenne Pro is related to being waterproof. The Gore Tex liner is superior. In all other ways I feel the Cayenne pro is a better product. The ceramic super fabric reinforcements on the older product hold their shape significantly better and appear to be significantly more durable. They appear merely decorative on the Defender jacket and pants.

This latest generation of high end Rev-It (jacket / Pants) have a few issues that resulted in my returning the product prior to use.
1) Questionable: Overall, it is very apparent (even on product at this price) Rev-It are making decisions to improve profitability which result in diminished product durability and functionality. The reflective details are very low budget (thin & flimsy) compared to the Cayenne pro. The Defender GTX is equally budget and insubstantial in this regard. Look and feel is very cheap. Long term durability questionable.
2) Deal Breaker: The main front zipper is simply too small and insubstantial. I have little confidence this zipper would hold in a major crash. Additionally, due to its small flimsy nature it requires careful two handed operation in use. I have no confidence this zipper will offer long term durability. The last thing I want to deal with is having a tailor replace a zipper at some point in the future.
3) Deal Breaker:
Fit. at 6'3" and 200 lbs I am of average build. My (not overly developed) biceps simply do not fit in the jacket with the insulating liner installed. Knees (shape, fit etc.) on the pants are not as well resolved as the cayenne pro. The defender GTX is also weak in this regard.
4) Questionable. The finer denier shell materials do look good, in my experience, these types of materials end up looking tatty after being exposed to abrasion. The cardboardy nature of the laminated shell creates a somewhat wooden feel as the lack of supply materials result in strange pressure points. Not ideal for fit and comfort or in a wet environment.

I will continue to use Rev-It products as I feel they are generally well engineered and assembled. That said (I am not a luddite) they don't make em like they used to.

The juice is worth the squeeze
Outstanding waterproof gear.

I live in the Pacific NorthWest, and it rains here... a lot. My previous Sand 2 jacket and pants kept me mostly dry, but the outer shell soaked up water like a sponge. Zip in rain liners are a hassle, especially in this environment. So, I upgraded to the Poseidon, and couldn't be happier.

Fit: I'm 6'1", 185 lbs, average build. The large jacket and large (long) pants fit me perfectly. They're more contoured than the Sand 2, particularly near the joints, which keeps the armor in place. The shell is also slightly stiffer, but not uncomfortable, and very stable at high speeds. The pants create a small pressure point near the hips as mentioned in previous reviews, but a quick adjustment after getting on the bike eliminates this.

Style: I opted for the grey jacket and black pants, to avoid looking like a matchy-matchy stormtrooper. Now I look like a Lego mini-figure instead.

Protection: This is where the Poseidon really shines. I tested it on a two hour ride in cold winter rain. Not just a light drizzle, we're talking biblical deluge. I rode behind a semi for a while, and the water spray coming off it was like a horizontal shower. I stayed warm and dry. There was some water pick up on the shell (even Gore-Tex isn't infallible), but nothing to get concerned about. It's 100% waterproof.

I haven't tested the ventilation yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it works in the summer. This is expensive gear, but you get what you pay for, and it's worth every cent.

Exchanged a Defender GTX suit for this....
I originally purchased the Defender GTX suit instead of the Poseidon GTX, for a couple of reasons: 1. I thought it would be cooler in hot weather, since the Gore-Tex liner is removable. 2. Better-looking suit, since the Poseidon jacket looks boxier to me, plus the Defender is closer to a white-silver color vs the Poseidon's drab shade of light gray. Once I received the Defender, however, I knew I had to return it. The sleeves were much too long. The forearms were so baggy that the elbow pads flopped loosely, even when everything was cinched together as tight as it could go. The little loop and hook designed to keep the collar open in warm weather wouldn't stay hooked. Too many liners = too much complication, especially when trying to stuff the gauntlet of a long glove beneath multiple liners. Zipping the jacket to the pants proved to be nearly impossible when wearing the liners, and almost equally difficult without them. Horrible placement of the connecting zippers, laying them one right on top of the other.

The Poseidon seems to have fixed most of these issues for me. For one thing, I can at least zip the suit together while wearing it now, which I couldn't with the Defender. Also, while I would still say the sleeves are perhaps an inch longer than I would prefer, they're not bad. And, even though the designs seem identical, for some reason the loop manages to stay hooked when I want to keep the collar open. I would greatly prefer a simple velcro or magnet method of pinning the collar open, but this hook-and-loop method did at least work (it remained hooked) during my ride.

I remain dubious as to how I'm supposed to stuff the gauntlets of my gloves beneath the liner—I can do it with a bare hand easily enough, but once I have a glove on I can't manage the other glove—and that remains my primary concern with this suit. They should have made the wrist closure wider to accommodate gloves in wet conditions. As it sits now, I have to wear the gauntlet over the sleeve cuff when I'm wearing the liner, which means water will find its way into the glove. Also, I almost can't close the lined cuff over the glove. Again, the cuff needs to be wider, with a greater range of closure.

And having seen the gray color in the flesh, now I'm wishing I'd bought the black suit. The gray jacket with the gray pants looks like a space suit, according to the comments I've received so far. I figured the black version would be too hot in summer, but now I'm thinking I would make that trade.

My only other issue with this jacket so far is that it feels a bit constricting, especially in the right underarm area. I think a large would have fit me best through the torso, but then the sleeves would be WAY too long, which is why I stuck with the medium. Hopefully it will loosen up once it breaks in, and everything will be fine.

So, those are my only issues with the jacket. Oh, and it could also use more easily accessible pockets for keys and wallets and things, as opposed to those two lower pockets with their very narrow openings. At least they're waterproof, though.

On the plus side, this jacket seems exceedingly well made, with very high-quality materials. I'm a little concerned about the long-term durability of the main zipper, which seems like it could stand to be a whole lot beefier, though perhaps that's a necessary trade-off in order to ensure the jacket's waterproofness. Otherwise, everything else seems built to last. Its relatively snug fit is a welcome attribute on an upright naked bike. No flapping at all. The armor sits exactly where it should, and it doesn't move around. It's not going anywhere. I feel very secure in this thing.

One huge positive is that the snug fit combined with the excellent thermal liner has allowed me to go without any of my heated gear, which is downright amazing to me. I can scarcely believe it, but even in high-thirties/low-forties temps I'm doing fine with just the liner.

Makes me wonder just how warm this suit is going to be once it gets hot again, even with all the flaps open. And, come summer, I sure hope that hook-and-loop collar opening continues to stay hooked.

All in all, other than the color choice I made, I'm thinking this suit is the one. I'm ridiculously picky, and still the Poseidon looks to have everything covered. It's not quite perfect, but it's probably about as close to perfect as a single four-season suit can be, at least for me. As long as it loosens up a bit upon breaking in, and if the collar manages to stay open when needed, AND if I can figure out how to stuff the gauntlets of cold-weather gloves beneath the sleeve cuffs with the liners in place, this should end up being my every-day go-to suit for the next ten years.

Excellent and Versatile Jacket
I've had the opportunity to take a few rides covering a few hundred miles since receiving my Poseidon jacket a couple of weeks ago. Temperatures have been between around 62 to 38 degrees (F). The jacket is comfortable down to around 55 degrees with the thermal liner installed. Below that I add a heated liner. Some might wish this jacket was warm enough to not need an electric liner, but I think that if that were the case it would probably be too hot in the summer. I can feel some airflow through the jacket which makes me optimistic that it will still be OK when the weather warms up.
I bought a size XL, and it fits very much like the XL Sand jacket I've owned for a few years. The vents are easy to open and close with one hand while riding but I haven't had a chance to test them in warm weather yet. The cuffs close with a zipper, which I find more convenient than a Velcro strap on other jackets, and it seems as if leaving the zipper unzipped will allow air to be scooped up into the sleeves.
The Velcro on the pockets seems to be better quality than on some other Revit jackets. It holds very securely and doesn't seem to be wearing out almost immediately, as some other jackets did.
I like to take motorcycle trips lasting 3 or 4 weeks and covering several thousand miles a few times a year. On a trip like that you need to be prepared for every kind of weather. I think the Poseidon is going to handle a broad range of weather conditions better than any other jacket I've tried. I've filled a closet with jackets in my quest for the perfect one. The Poseidon looks as if its going to be the closest to perfection I've found so far.

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.

Checks all my boxes
I'm 5'10" 175, 42" chest, 33" waste, athletic build. Went with a large and it fits great, maybe a half inch longer on the arms then I would like but doesn't really matter once gloves are on and on the bike.

Minus rain, I put it through it's paces this weekend. Started of the day 40 degree's and brisk #live in SoCal# ended the day in the 80's. Started on the street and spent the day on the trails. Jacket liner was great and once removed airflow was nice. Went with the light grey and can say that I was a lot cooler in the sun then the others I was riding with once it got warm. The liner removal and replacement is great, I like the color coded sleeve attachment system, as well as the pouch for the detached liner. Neck collar is nice and soft. I've had other jackets wear after a long day it starts to annoy me, not so with the Poseidon

Few minor gripes:
- The neck collar can be hooked to stay open to allow airflow. Only issue is it's a hook not a snap so a few times it came undone and flapped a little. Not a big deal, my guess is that it needs to break in a little.
- The back protector if you want to call it that is a joke. For the price they should have given something a little better. If you buy the jacket, invest in an upgraded back protection.

One concern
- Velcro for the front seal over the front zipper. A slight concern over wear and tear. If it holds up over time then no worries.

Very pleased with the purchase, have to thank Drew from Revzilla for helping with selection and sizing. For me this should be a nice 4 season jacket. If you dip below 40 then I'd suggest an extra thermal layer. Probably sweat some if above 85, but that goes with just about anything. Probably invest in there cooling vest for the late summer months out here when hits those high dry temps.

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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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

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.

Steven C on Jan 21, 2015
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.

looking to upgrade my Sand 2 suit with a better breathing, integrated gore-tex lined suit
ERIC S on Sep 17, 2014
I have had great luck with RevIt gear in the past both on the track around the world and also on my street bike travelling in NA. Ihave loved the fit and wear of the gear and the quality has surpassed my expectations. I have gone from my RevIt gear to other gear and including some premium BMW gear and also Klim. OF them all I am going back to RevIt. This new laminated Goretex gear is the ticket for me.

It has all the features that I am looking for and is a very well made garment. I hope I get a lot of miles under me with this jacket!
Gavin D on Feb 2, 2014
Because of its versatility and 3 season wearability (not 4 if you live in the D.C. area in the summer).

Good reviews

I am considering this Jacket and also the matching pant. I am also looking at the Dainese Talos pair. Can you help with any pros and cons of either set in general also compared to each other? I am curious about the jacket and the pant. Thank you for any and all info you can provide!

BEST ANSWER: Size 05
Does the jacket work well with the least Stx brace? That is, do the struts of the brace interfere with chest or rear vents?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about STX, I have a Leatt brace. I don't' have any issue's. You have to lift the brace up a little to get the the front pockets open, but it rest just on top after they are open.
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?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: There has been multiple reports of the Badlands leaking at the arm and pocket zippers on naked bikes.
I am a new motorcycle driver, and I am looking for a set of gear. Is this a good jacket to have?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2016
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?
Ryan on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
can the magnet be removed or taken off of the jacket ?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
Hi, if I am a 2XL size in a Sand 2 jacket, will it be the same size on a Poseidon?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about the 2XL in a Sand 2 jacket. I am a 41/42 chest with 36" waist and 39" sitting height. The jacket fits me fine and with the liner, it is snug. I think they run a tad small, if you are going to wear a base layer and the insert. According to the sizing on the Revit site, a 2XL is a 58 European size which is 48 U.S. size. Here are some others (EU/US):

XXS: 45/36
XS: 48/38
S: 50/40
M: 52/42
L: 54/44
XL: 56/46
2XL: 58/48
Can you have it custom made?
Christian C on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think you can have it custom made but I don't think it' necessary. It has enough arm/waist adjustment to go up or down a chest size. I wear a 16/34-35 shirt. The Large fits me fine. The sleeves are a tad long but with gloves and the Velcro fastened cuffs, it doesn't affect the fit. Once you get used to the location of the zippers on the sleeves and pants, along with the magnets on the chest pockets, you can adjust them while riding, without looking at them. Order it and if doesn't fir, send it back!
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?
Lee T on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does it come with the latest see flex protection or with the older sad tec protection?
Andreu R on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Protection:
Sas-Tec CE protection at shoulders and elbows
SuperFabric panels at the shoulders and elbows
Back Protector (sold separately):
Seesoft Back Protector -Type RV
Type RV / Size 04 fits MD
Type RV / Size 05 fits LG-2XL
