Rukka Armas Jacket overview

Gore Lockout Closure
A simple, toothless, durable 2-track design that seamlessly joins material together without flaps for snag-free leak-free waterproof performance. To replenish lubrication a Gore silicone marker is provided.

Armacor Protection
While motorcycle-grade Dupont Cordura is the minimum standard (in our uncompromising view) the Rukka Armas goes an incredible step further. Gore-Tex Pro Shell 3-layer laminate with Armacor, a combination of Dupont Cordura and Kevlar aramid fiber that outperforms all other textiles in abrasion resistance. NOTE - unlike some so-called higher-end brands that use Armacor just to reinforce impact areas Rukka is the only manufacturer to use Armacor 100% throughout. Because every area is potentially exposed to impact and abrasion forces.

Other features
• Tear and abrasion resistant SuperFabric ceramic reinforcements
• TFL Cool Black system.
• RVP Air Protectors meet the requirements of CE Norm EN1621-1
• Outlast PCM thermal regulation and detachable 60g insulated full sleeve lining.
• Soft neoprene collar
• Ventilation openings with zippers in front on both shoulders.
• Width adjustment on upper and lower arm.
• Jacket can be zipped to matching Armas Trousers and all other Rukka trousers.
• Seven pockets; three inside (waterproof), including mobile phone and four outside.
• 5 year guarantee

Hello Mike,

Are you familiar to the test they talk about in this thread? Why does the Armax come out so poorly compared to BMW and Halvarssons? Do you know if any recent tests show how the Armas performs?

Mike,

Thanks for all the info. Can you provide a link to a sizing table? I see your links to your website and on the website can see different sized - but can you provide a link to a sizing table where we can cross reference measurements?

Mike

Over time you'll see multiple comparisons where any one of the same participants come out ahead in one area or another in the lab. We put our faith in the real world experiences of our clients and other riders who put this gear to the test daily.

We are not utilizing a size table for Rukka at this time. Past ones have not always been reliable or reflective of current gear sizing. Also different areas of a person's body can sometimes correlate to more than one specific size recommendation. We can say though the Armas and Armiina are true to the below euro/US conversions.

Mens
48 Euro=38 US
50 Euro=40 US
52 Euro=42 US
54 Euro=44 US
56 Euro=46 US
58 Euro=48 US
60 Euro=50 US
62 Euro=52 US

Womens
34 Euro=4 US
36 Euro=6 US
38 Euro=8 US
40 Euro=10 US
42 Euro=12 US
44 Euro=14 US
46 Euro= 16 US

Riders are also encouraged to provide the following measurements:
height:
weight:
chest:
waist:
hips/buttocks:
jean size (waist x inseam):

We personally examine every client's sizing most times in conjunction with Rukka. No order is left unchecked.

Mike,
how much would a new back pad cost? Do you have any in stock?

Hey Jim, the Rukka proprietary CE Air Protector Backpad is available for $49. PM or call with the details. Yours may still be covered by warranty.

Mike,
I try to ride year round, but won't ride on snow and ice, so I guess I am a "three season" rider, and the Unicorn sounds better for summer. I have electric gear for the cold.
What are the differences in the armor in the Armas and the Unicorn and are you going to stock pants in the Unicorn line?
Thanks

It's a shame they didn't put in more venting to make the armas a 4 season jacket. It would be a lot easier to justify spending that on a jacket if you could wear it during the summer when the majority of miles get put on.

The Unicorn jacket is an update of the previous AirVision model. It pairs with the still produced AirVision trousers. Both are stock items. Unicorn with its airflow Cordura AFT, Outlast PCM/Gore-Tex lining with AirVantage inflatable insulation gives you the widest temperature range of anything going (40-100fh/4-38c). All Rukka gear comes complete with the same proprietary CE EN 1621-1 armor called RVP Air System Protectors. Noteworthy because they spread impact better and are the only patented CE armor to offer total airflow. Here's the jacket set:

Yes, it's shame no one makes a 4-season jacket because it doesn't exist. No amount of venting or video promises are going to make a solid jacket bearable, especially with the kind of standard armor most use. Once you get past a certain amount of zippered separations the overall integrity of the garment is compromised. Take a look again at the Unicorn or talk to anyone who runs an AirPower series. Though they appear solid they are in effect extremely porous (beyond breathable) Cordura jackets that work from 40-100fh degrees.

How do you size the pants(I'm short and thick) and always have trouble finding pants that aren't way too long. Can someone have these in hand for an early June trip guaranteed?

I'm guessing the Armas set-up would be suitable for an extended trip ranging from Northern N.Y. with a brief jaunt through the southwest in june. With the lions share of time spent in the Pacific Northwest June through September.

Hey LV, the Armas should be fine ruling out high SW temperatures at less than highway speed. Certain size availability can dry up temporarily from time to time. Best not to order right up against your trip date.

Rukka Trousers Sizing
The easiest way to determine trouser size is to correlate it with your build type and jacket size as follows:
• thin = trousers two sizes down from jacket
• average = trousers one size down from jacket
• heavy = trousers same size as jacket
• very heavy = trousers one size up from jacket
• C1 short = less 7cm crotch to ankle
• C2 regular = fits most riders
• C3 long = plus 7cm crotch to ankle
Trouser sizing questions always welcomed. Just give us your measurements for waist, hips and inseam.

A lot has been made of the d3O protection armor now used more and more by the bigger manufacturers. What is your take on it and how would you compare it to the Rukka armor. Also, is any of their gear Leatt compatible?
