We like the Klim Adventure but it parts company with the Rukka Armas on a number of fronts. Klim uses Armacor textile (Kevlar/Cordura mix) in its premium jacket only to reinforce impact areas. Rukka may be the only manufacturer to use this high level protection 100% throughout, the logic being that every area is potentially exposed to impact and abrasion forces. The Klim fit is baggier and uses Gore Lockout Closures only for the pockets. Rukka Armas is more of a precision road fit better suited for most situations including highway speeds. It also uses Gore Lockout Closure for its main primary front zip eliminating the need for a cumbersome flap. Why Klim doesn't is a bit of a confusion. Pricing is about the same though Rukka is European-made with Klim being made in China.
