REVIT Poseidon Pants

With the outer shell made of 3L GORE-TEX Pro, the membrane laminated directly to the outer shell and the innovative VCS | Aquadefence system incorporated into the design, it’s hard to not be comfortable while wearing the Rev'It!

A connection zipper, CE-approved protection, reflective panels, a grip-panel at seat and adjustable protection pockets complete this compelling package.

REV'IT! Poseidon GTX Pants 4.8 5 10 10
Great features but questionable quality I wish I could give my Poseidon suit (jacket and pants) 5-stars as they are the most versatile and well thought out riding gear I have owned over the past 25 years. Unfortunately they're quality is shockingly poor for a suit this expensive. After less than 3 weeks in the saddle both items showed premature wear... with significant fraying of the jacket sleeve zippers and the pants crotch zipper completely coming loose at the seams. While Rev'it accepted an RMA on the pants, they said the premature wear on the jacket was not enough to warrant an exchange... and I fear they will do neither once both items are over a year old. I find this incredibly disappointing for such an expensive suit and not up to the quality I have found with Dainese in the past February 23, 2015
Almost perfect in every way They did not make a pant that accommodated my body shape in the size that would have been best, despite being a reasonably fit guy for my age and activity level I do have a slight belly. The guys at rev were kind enough to let me return it with no fee's, and after some reconsideration on sizes I ordered a 3XL Reg. I tried it on yesterday after the UPS driver dropped it off, the fit was good so I took it out for a latenight 80 mile trek in 40 degree weather with high humidity. Despite heavy the chill at 60 mph my lower half covered by the GTX Rev's were considerably warmer than the rest of me. I may still need a heated liner for very long rides (500 miles or more) but for 100 or less you will be thankful you chose these over others. My CTX fairing doesn't cover very much of me, so the differences in clothing choices make a noticeable difference in rider comfort. Big thumbs up for the pants and Revzilla's customer service team. The fit of the thigh at 3XL reg is a bit more generous than the XL or 2XL but not so much that you're going to feel like you're swimming in it if you have a body type like mine. The legs on the 3XL are about 2 inches longer than I needed but that was easily solved by Rev'It's wisely included cinch points at the calf and near the knee. The adjustable cuffs around the calf and knee area kept the pant leg from dragging along the ground and overlapping the heel of my boot when I step off the bike. The XL/2XL short size's armor zones in the legs fit better out of the box without adjustment, the 3XL reg's knee pads need some adjusting but not much. Unlike the slightly less expensive version of these pants, the shell itself, and not thermal liner is actually the gore-tex membrane so you could remove the liner and still be confident that you will remain dry when nature decides to dump on you unexpectedly during your ride. It is machine washable but the instructions say avoid using anything that has fabric softener in it, remove the amor prior to washing and apply an approved water proofing agent to the shell after it's dried. According to directions it is recommended to allow it to dry in a dryer but I would recommend the lowest heat setting, don't use a radiator or any other direct heat source to dry it.

Awesome.... I have used these in Malaysia in high heat and humidity and found they were both waterproof and not too hot. I just returned from a three week tour of S Island New Zealand on a GS. The weather was very mixed, heavy rain, snow, hail, high winds over the three weeks. Temps ranged from 2d Celcius upto around 17d celcius. Basically road with the thermal liners in all the time.Overall these pants performed briliantly. I never got wet or even damp despite on a few days riding 4-5 hours in the rain and very stron winds. They are comfortable and allow good movement when off road as well. Can not fault these or the jacket which I also have... highly reccomended. December 4, 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. Pants were warm in the mornings and cool in afternoon with 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
Superb quality. You get what you pay for. I first bought and returned Klim Adventure Rally pants because they were so baggy in the legs, and no matter what I did, I couldn't get the knee guards high enough to fit correctly. I called Matt at Revzilla, explained the problem, and he suggested the Goretex lamiate Poseidon pants, which don't have to have the liner installed to be waterproof, and also come in Regular, Tall, and Short lengths. The legs are much slimmer cut than the AV pants, and the SasTech knee armor adjusted to fit me perfectly. The pants are snug enough in the knees to keep the knee armor in place in case of a fall, which was a huge concern with the loose AV pants. These pants vent adequately in our Houston summer heat, and with the liner will be warm for cold weather. I like them a lot. August 4, 2014
Updated Poseidon Experience Updated Rev’It Poseidon jacket and pants review. As I just completed a 22 day road trip on my 2013 BMW R1200GSW I am happy to offer further experience with my Poseidon gear. One might think that in 22 days I would have to opportunity to give my rain experience opinion, well in the 22 days we had 3 periods of brief showers that were NOT any sort of waterproof test, heck even a T shirt and shorts would have sufficed in those showers! The temperature ranged from a low of 44 to a high of 96 with many days of significant winds. Only on one day did I even use the Rev’It liners, which made the cooler temps tolerable. Of course since my Poseidon gear is the gray color it certainly makes dirt, grime and bugs appear more pronounced and look like it needs a cleaning. But they wash off fairly easily with a cloth, being cautious not to rub them into the pants and jacket. There is a bit of fraying of the sleeve material on the right arm, and I am stumped as to the cause, it isn’t rubbing on anything, just something I’ll have to keep an eye on as time goes on. Another issue that I’m perplexed over is the Hi-Viz vest that I purchased as part of the Rev’It gear. It fits over the jacket nicely with the exception that it moves about when the jacket is taken off or put on. Enough so that it often catches the Velcro on the front of the jacket and does not fare well, it is fraying the Hi-Viz material enough that I fear it will have a shorter than expected life. Seems there should be a better way to secure the front of the vest to the area where the jacket Velcro attacks it. On day 15 the zipper on the front of the pants began tearing away from the seam. Now it is not because they are too tight over my largess fanny. I purchased the pants in size XL with the thought that I could wear my Gerbing’s as a liner in the cold temps. Examining the seam clearly shows that there was not enough overlap material or that the zipper itself is faulty. Fortunately my wife was along and she is a seamstress so she has made temporary repairs and they got me home OK, but the zipper does not work easily and will no doubt fail again without attention from Rev’It. Which brings me to the warranty. Since I purchased this gear from Revzilla they are the ones who I returned the pants to for a warranty claim, in fact UPS should be delivering them to Revzilla today. They indicated that they would work with Rev’It to determine the best method to address this issue. Have been a loyal Revzilla customer and have no doubt that this will be taken care of by Rev’It. Hopefully in time for my next extended ride. Overall I am very pleased with the Poseidon gear and of course that may change IF Rev’It says they will not stand behind their product. It is disappointing that this issue has occurred but I’m enjoying the gear with no second thoughts on my purchase. My other choice for gear had been the Klim Badlands Pro. For me the Gore-Tex shell of both of these was a must, I know that is an individual thing and others prefer the Gore-tex liners, but I do not. The gear performed well in the 90s and the venting is pretty good, never got overly hot and it will be interesting to see how I fare in temps of 100 or so. Have a cooling vest for this, just not the Rev’It one since I already owned another one. I did use a car wash to have the wife give me a quick rinse off and that did remove much of the acquired road grime. They still need to be washed as per the manufactures instructions and that may happen after the warranty is addressed, or I might wait till after the next planned ride. That about covers it. If you have specific questions feel free to shoot them my way. July 10, 2014
Bought for commuting ~55 miles a day I'm riding an ST1300 and trying to commute as often as possible. The goal of this suit (bought both jacket and pants) was to wear them over normal clothes and all-weather. I did a bit of research, and originally was going to go with the 1 piece Aerostich suit but there were a lot of mixed reviews about waterproof-ness. In the end I decided on the Poseidon set. I'm 6'0 34" jeans and between 187 - 197LBs depending on how strict my eating habits are. I bought a Large pants, and XL Jacket. In a perfect world I probably could use a Large and 1/2 in both. The pants could be a tad bigger around in the legs as 'overpants' But when not used for this they fit me perfect. Same for the Jacket. A Large and 1/2 would probably fit me better, but I imagine a Large would be too small. AT 6' tall the Pants are plenty long and I like how they are 'loose' at the waist since you are bent at the waist on the bike. They have slide adjusters to tighten them up as needed. I've been in ~24°f commutes with these, and they are of course a million times better than jeans alone. They keep my legs pretty warm behind my ST. I've also been in about 80°f weather. I can tell these are going to be fairly warm in hot weather. They have a nice big vent in the front, but that can only do so much. Black riding gear is going to be warm. The other plus is I just feel so much better / safer having full armor on again. I'm not scared to ride in jeans, but it is amazing how much better I feel with all gear on. I come from a past of wearing one piece leather suits, this should be cooler than those, but they're not going to be like wearing short! So, in summary I do very much like these pants and they fit quite well, just a little tight as 'overpants'. April 17, 2014
Incredible pant, but weird stiff/resistance feel near hip These pants are great. Can't comment on rain performance yet. I have two pairs for use as overpants and as standalone, and they feel very heavy duty when compared to someone like the Enterprise pant. It's also nice that they come with top of the line knee armor, and that they can have the hip armor upgraded to match. It has snaps on the knee so that you can keep the knee armor in place better, especially if you pull out the liner which can leave a lot of space between the pants and your leg. The vent design with the locking mechanism is easily one hand operated and is absolutely genius. So nice to pop open those vents and get lots of airflow into your legs. My only complaints are pricing (way too much for a textile!), the knee snap popping off when flexing my knee in an aggressive riding position, and the weird stiff feeling near the hip. I'm talking about the point where they have the red rip stop stitching... The way the materials come together there makes it feel like there is some really stiff piece of plastic sewn into the side of the pants right next to the pocket. It's more annoying the farther you bring your leg up. February 1, 2014

Larry N: I have the jacket and wanted the matching pants. Aug 27, 2014
John H: I wanted a tough, Goretex shell pant useful for both hot weather, with the venting system of this pant, as well as the waterproof, warmth it will have for winter use and wet weather. I didn't want the Goretex in a removable liner as that is a hassle if caught in a rainstorm while riding in a pant that must have the liner to be waterproof. Aug 26, 2014
Dean d: 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. I have 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. Apr 4, 2014

Alex T: Can you wear jeans underneath though? Oct 4, 2014
james h: I just received a pair of XL SHORT sized pants, I am returning them because they are too tight in the hips when factoring in my belly in the riding position..
I tried it on with just under armor for pants, my thighs are snug and the knee armor more or less fits in place in that size I hope the next one will be better and the knee armor still fits ok.
I digress, the pants on that size (for me) fit tight enough around the thighs that wearing regular pants underneath would be a pretty snug fit with the liner in but it's probably do-able if you wanted to wear liner+jeans. It's much more likely that the pants will accommodate jeans easily without the liner in.
I suspect that 2XL Short or even 3XL Short might work well despite the inseam being an inch or two longer than it should be. (My inseam is normally 30 but with boots and other factors it can go as long as 32)
Pant legs are wide enough to accommodate most boots. Jan 23, 2015
John C asked: I wear a Troy Lee brace on my left knee do you feel these pant's would provide enough room? I would remove the pad that comes with the pants, just don't wan't to bind or stress stitching. Thanks Jul 30, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
edward b: From what I've seen of the Troy Lee braces, they tend to be open or thin over the knee cap. The knee pads on my Poseidon pants tend to touch my knee cap but aren't pressed against them by the pants, it's just gravity holding the pad against my knee. I think if I were to grab the knee pad it would lift a half inch or so before the cloth under my leg stopped it from going any further away from my knee, so it seems as if your brace may fit, even with the knee padding in place. I would be surprised if it doesn't fit if you remove the knee pad, but I would hate for you to leave your knee exposed to impact without a pad.

I would give it a try if I were you. They are great pants and Revzilla will take them back if they don't work for you.

Michael H: These pants have a fitted feel to them. Stretch fabric and the like and fit pretty close to the leg. Although they do have a good amount of give I don't know how comfortable wearing a brace underneath them would be. Jul 30, 2015

Nathan J: I removed the padding that came with the pants and wear the forcefield pro pants underneath. I have never felt like they were too bulky or stress the pants. I cant imagine your knee brace would be a problem. Jul 30, 2015

James B: Re the knee brace. These are very form-fitting, unless you are very thin and the brace is very small it wouldn't work. I switched to Klim for more room. Jul 30, 2015
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
james h: Unless the Troy Lee brace is extremely bulky, it should fit with no problem. It would most likely be a little snug with the thermal liner in, though. Jul 30, 2015

Simon M: I have had my Poseidons for a few months now and rode through some sever storms. On each occasion the pants kept me completely dry and comfortable. In hot weather the venting is pretty good, although I will say the pants ride a lot warmer than other Rev'it pants I have owned. The material is pretty stiff, and even after a few thousand miles they remain quite " cardboardy" between the waist and the top of the vents. But to answer your question, yes they are waterproof with no water ingress via the zippers. Jul 11, 2014

Joshua G: A few weeks ago I was in a torrential Midwest downpour for about 90 minutes straight and the vent zippers performed flawlessly. At one point I had to get off the bike to adjust my gloves and when I sat in the pool of water on my soaked seat it felt cold and wet. I had that "Awwww man..." reaction but when I got home I was actually bone dry. The seat was just cold, no water got in anywhere. Jul 11, 2014

Alan S: I just road through a thunder storm last weekend and the pants worked great. I had just shorts underneath and I stayed dry. I did close the vents just before riding into the storm.

John K: I have been wearing the gtx pants an average 2-5/week. Gtx jacket only if it's cold (<50 degrees) and the Galactic otherwise. The main zipper on the paints popped at the seam after less than 10 months of riding. I emailed Revzilla with pictures and they handled the RMA process with Rev'it. The process was easy and Revzilla's communications was great. Pants came back looking great. I couldn't tell that it had been restitched. Worse part was being unable to ride for a few weeks. Not sure about production changes though. Sep 19, 2015

Justin F: I want a pair and had a sizing question. I was going to order a Large/short as I am 35 in the waist and 30 inch in-seam ( about a 39-40 inch out seam but they are OUT of that size. If I get a regular Large are they going to be too long? I don't mind they being a bit long when standing because in the bike that works out but the knee armor needs to be in the right place ( I guess it is adjustable) So anybody about my size and what worked for you ..
