Product description Rev’It Poseidon 2 GTX Black
The Rev'It Poseidon 2 GTX is the successor to the popular Rev'It Poseidon GTX. They have further developed this great touring jacket at Revit and where necessary, improved it. They did this by utilising the feedback they received from riders around the world. One of the most important improvements is the completely renewed outer material of this jacket, which is lighter and more flexible than the predecessor. The ventilation is also taken care of and improved, resulting in the VCS aquadefence (Ventilation Control System) with an air flow that is much more effective than before. Another innovation compared to the old model is the removable storm collar. Furthermore, there are other minor improvements that will be discussed later in the text.

Material Rev'It Poseidon 2 GTX Black
The outer fabric is made of 400 denier nylon, this material is very wear-resistant, tear-resistant and durable. They have laminated the GTX membrane on this nylon, giving you a 100% water and windproof, breathable outer layer. On the shoulders, storm collar and upper arms the outer shell is 3 layers, a high performance GTX membrane is glued to the outer layer and to the inner lining, they have done this for better breathability and therefore more comfort. Another improvement compared to the old model is that they have strengthened the elbows and forearms with Superfabric. This Superfabric is five times more durable than leather, but weighs half the weight of leather. On the upper arms, upper back and chest, the jacket is provided with reflection material for better visibility on the road. Just above the elbows is a strip of stretch material for better freedom of movement.
Protection Rev'It Poseidon 2 GTX Black
This jacket has been developed to provide optimal protection against both impact and weather conditions throughout the year. Together with the thermal inner lining, the GTX membrane provides protection against weather conditions. The outer shell of the jacket, together with the Seeflex level 2 CE protection on the shoulders and elbows, provide optimal protection against impact. The Seeflex protectors have ventilating properties, are flexible and very light. You also have the option to extend the protection with a Seesoft CE level 2 back protector type RV and CE level 1 divided chest protector (not included).
Comfort Rev'It Poseidon 2 GTX Black
The Poseidon 2 offers optimum comfort, partly due to the outer shell material that is much smoother and more flexible than with the old model. The strategically placed ventilation openings that are larger, certainly contribute to the comfort. The ventilation openings on the arm have been moved further upwards to produce a more effective airflow while riding. Thanks to the VCS Panel with the Fidlock magnetic closure, the ventilation openings can be opened with one hand while riding and the opening flap remains firmly in place. The openings are closed with zippers and once closed these zippers are water and windproof hence the term 'aquadefence'. The collar has a new closure (Flexisnap) with a push button that can be adjusted to the personal preference of the rider. Furthermore, the collar has a neoprene upper edge for comfort and the ability to secure the collar with a loop to prevent flapping when open. The new detachable storm collar is also provided with a neoprene front piece. The jacket can be adjusted to your personal preference on the sides and on the forearms. You can, for example, tighten the jacket if you remove the thermal lining.
Other Rev'It Poseidon 2 GTX Black
This jacket has been renewed, but the recommended retail price is only 10 euros higher than with the previous model. The jacket has 2 waterproof pockets and a large back pocket, a napoleon pocket and 2 inside pockets. Furthermore, the jacket has a zipper on both sides that you can open to increase comfort when you're sitting on the bike. The jacket is also prepared for a Connector NEON vest and a Challenger cooling vest (not included). The Connector NEON is meant to improve visibility and the Challenger cooling vest, well the name says it all, gives cooling. Instead of the thermal lining you can zip the challenger into the outer fabric.
