Reviews & Questions
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...
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.
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#.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
One last thing. For a garment at this price point I think the zippers are pretty shabby. The wrist zippers would barely operate and I wouldn’t hold out a lot of hope that main zipper to go the distance.
So, it’s back to my trusty Sand 2 and a rain jacket in the saddlebags.
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.
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.
other options possibly?
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
Anyone know if this is a misprint and what it is?
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.
