2013 AIMExpo: REV'IT! Neptune and Poseidon GTX Jackets
We’ve seen some awesome off-road riding gear at the 2013 American International Motorcycle Expo in Orlando, Fla., but two jackets from REV’IT! stand out.
The Poseidon GTX ($899.99) is what you want to wear when Mother Nature is having a bad day. It feels surprisingly lightweight, but REV’IT! says its 3L GORE-TEX outer shell is 100 percent waterproof for riding in the most extreme conditions. To add some ventilation when the sun comes out, open up chest vents with the FidLock magnetic fastener system. Other features of the Poseidon GTX include CE-certified protection, reflective panels, collar hook and connection zippers.
The Neptune GTX jacket ($599.99) is intended for four-season riding. It’s lightweight outer shell has adjustable ventilation panels to let in more cool air, while a detachable GORE-TEX membrane keeps the weather outside where it belongs and utilizes Paclite Technology so it doesn’t stick to your skin when you remove the detachable thermal liner.
