We measured and tried on a selection of these pants and we developed a size chart to help you choose a size based upon your waist and inseam. The size chart below is partially ours and partially REV’IT’s chart. The largest waist size listed in the chart are with the waist adjusters full open. The waist size adjustment straps work pretty well to give you size adjustability… we estimate about 2” as the range indicates.
As you can see in the chart, the pants are available in regular, short and tall inseam sizes, so choose the inseam you normally wear in slacks or jeans. The pants also have adjustability of the armor height (independent of inseam length) which can be accessed by pulling each leg inside out (see our photo gallery for a pic of this). Velcro allows you to set the armor in different spots and you can check how the armor feels on your knee when you are sitting on the bike and decide which position seems best.

Measurement tip: With a style like this that MAY be used as an overpant, you’ll want to measure your waist over the clothing you intend to wear under the pants. And measure yourself fairly high up the waist because protective style pants like this are cut to ride higher on your waist than a lot of modern jean styles (so relying just upon the size jeans you buy might result in motorcycle pants that are too small). Right below the navel is about the right height on the waist for measurement.
Our Two Cents
Poseidon 2 GTX pants offer the same rugged construction as the matching jacket. The Poseidon 2’s shell is a bonded Gore-Tex fabric. The Gore-Tex waterproofing is bonded to the back of the shell material to give the most bullet proof waterproofing in the business. Because the Gore-Tex is bonded to the shell, and not a separate layer behind the shell, it means the shell won’t get “waterlogged” and won’t get heavy and hard to dry out after a rain. The bonded construction jackets like this also have very effective venting for summer use as compared to waterproof pants with a mid-liner. There are two HUGE triangular vents in front on the thigh. They’ll work so much better than simple zippered vents because of the large area that you are opening up. And the way the vents are constructed, you can open/close them with one hand. For use in winter, the pants come with a full-leg quilted thermal liner. With both good venting and the thermal liner, these pants will give four seasons of comfort.
The armor in the knee area of these pants is the same as with the Poseidon 2 GTX jacket. Its Level 2 armor which is the same heavy duty stuff REVIT adds to their best adventure jackets/pants. The hips are equipped with the CE level 1 protectors so there is nothing else to buy for the pants.
The pants have both a short rear zipper and a long zipper. The long zipper connects the pants to the jacket to make a comprehensive suit. The jacket will help hold up the pants and the connection zipper acts to hold down the tail of the jacket in case of a fall so you don’t experience any skin exposure. The short rear zipper can be used with REVIT’s optional Strapper Suspenders. Many people like suspenders with weighty motorcycle pants for comfort. Take the link below to see that option.
The waist of the pants is much like other REVIT pant styles… there are two side waist adjusters which are effective and easy to use. Also, REVIT has the best waist closure in the business. Its a slide/lock arrangement that is easy and VERY secure. You won’t be popping off the button on these babies!
The leg ends are equipped with some very bright night time reflectives. There is a zipper at the end of the leg to help in getting them on and off and the ends of the legs have bands of Velcro so you can adjust the end to work with whatever kind of boots you have. Just above the calf is a slide buckle so you can tailor the fit around the knee area so that they are comfortable, but also so the armor is held in place reasonably well. On the insides of the pant leg near they bottom there is an extra panel of abrasion resistant material to make that area wear better. :: Paul, 10-29-18
REVIT says: Our Poseidon 2 GTX trousers are the perfect match to the Poseidon 2 Jacket. They’re purpose-built for their waterproofing abilities and to keep going when the weather wants you to stop. 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. Protection comes in the form of our award-winning SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 armor, standard at the knees.At the hips, we’ve included the breathable and flexible CE-level 1 SEESMART™ protectors
