SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 protection at the knees
The Poseidon 2 GTX trousers are the perfect complement to the aptly name jacket. Though, it’s a standout piece on its own. Taking into account its name, “Poseidon,” Greek god of the sea and the waters, you know just from its title that it has something to do with water. In this case, it’s to keep the water out and you warm, dry and protected.
The outer shell is constructed by mixing 2-layer and 3-layer GORE-TEX® fabrics, which reduce water pick-up to a minimum. The fabric then provides not only the highest level of waterproofing but breathability, too. This way, no matter how wet it gets out there on the road, your skin can still breathe comfortably. And keep you keep feeling good regardless of what the weather is doing.
On-demand airflow is provided by our patented VCS|aquadefence (Ventilation Control System). When opened, it provides ventilation to the legs. But if things take a turn for the worse, it’s very easy to close and is 100% waterproof.
With the Poseidon 2 GTX Trousers, you get protection against the elements and also protection against the road. Our award-winning SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 armor comes standard at the knees, and at the hips, we’ve included the breathable and flexible CE-level 1 SEESMART™.
These are the most comprehensive, high-performance, directly laminated GORE-TEX® trousers with on-demand airflow we’ve ever brought to the market. Knowing how many satisfied users are already out there loving their first-generation Poseidon GTX garments, we’re confident that its successor will reach an even larger audience.

When opened the aquadefence system allows direct ventilation to the body. When the zipper or panel is closed, it presses onto the incorporated rain gutter, the jacket is then 100% wind- and waterproof. When the panel or zipper is closed the rain gutter will stop the water from entering via the ventilation holes, thereby keeping you dry and comfortable.

Possesseur depuis un an de la tenue POSEIDON GTX, veste et pantalon, j'en suis satisfait, en conduite.
Efficace par tous les temps et confortable sur la moto (1200 GS), elle devient vite pénible à supporter une fois que l'on marche un peu. L'ensemble est lourd et rigide, c'est malheureusement le lot de l'étanchéité et de la sécurité...
Le poids n'est pas ce qui me dérange le plus, par contre le pantalon est impossible de faire tenir à la ceinture quand je ne suis pas en position assise. Les bretelles restent la seule solution ou alors il faut mettre les mains dans les poches pour maintenir le pantalon à la taille. Pas terrible ! Le système de serrage est totalement inutile, sans effet car les boucles se desserrent sur l'élastique.
Je regrette vivement que REVIT n'ai adapté ses bretelles Strapper qu'uniquement à la version 2.
C'est bien d'innover, mais ce serait mieux de penser aussi aux clients qui vous ont déjà fait confiance... en adaptant les accessoires pour atténuer les défauts des modèles plus anciens.
Pourquoi ne pas sortir ces bretelles avec une pince d'accroche avant plutôt que des Velcro qui limite l'adaptation ?
