Kalahari and Airoad offer comparable abrasion resistance as both are essentially 500d cordura-based. Where they part company is in their ability to handle your temp ranges (40-105fh degrees). Kalahari has the more common solid construction with zippered vents in key areas. Its range (45-80fh) provides some relief from heat while on the move but nothing like the total airflow you get with the Airoad or its more streamlined cousin the Airob. These unique garments are made of rarely-seen knitted cordura AFT that offers a wide range of comfort (55-100fh) especially during extreme heat without compromising protection. Both the Kalahari and Airoad/Airob feature removable Gore-Tex/Outlast linings and the Rukka proprietary airflow CE armor. Note that all these models have been discontinued with replacement ones (under new monikers) at higher prices slated for next year. However we still have a good range of Airob jackets left for $1195 with matching AirVision trousers $875. You can stand back up now.

Rukka Price Jump?

Wow, did the Aramas go up in price, or did I simply block out the fact that I spent over 1,600 on a jacket?

I could have sworn I spent about 1,200 on mine from your Mike?

Believe you got well under the wire before the price increase though not quite as low as the figure stated. Blocking out has its virtues.

Does anyone know if the Airob has pockets for chest armor?

Two questions about the Armas.

Hi Rob,

Just brought myself an Armas jacket in Black.

I wonder is you can tell me why Rukka went back to the Velcro fastening on the neck, and why there's no adjustment on the waist ?

Thanks.

Mike,

Any thoughts on the Rukka Apollo gloves? I noticed that on your website you do not list any Rukka gloves. Is this because you are not satisfied with the quality or are there other reasons such as lack of demand or availability?

Thanks for all your information !

The orange protectors are the Rukka D30 Air System. Like the Rukka proprietary (black) RVP Air Protectors they adhere to CE prEN 1621-1 2010 standards except for the D30 back protector which rates CE prEN 1621-2 2010. Both materials provide total airflow with increased damping compared to hard protectors. The D30, like many others discussed on these forums, stays flexible until impact when their molecules lock together to absorb and further spread the force of the shock. While a nice option it flows decidedly less air than the original armor which thus far has performed very well for our clients. Keep in mind also that the D30 will set you back $178 in lieu of the original armor which is essentially free (included with your Rukka purchase).

for those interested in the armas suit (great suit btw), i switched out the RVP air knee armor on my armas trousers for the new D30 because it's softer. on extended riding tours i found the ridges in the RVP armor hit weird pressure points on my knees and caused chafing—just enough to keep distracting me...also for whatever reason the edges on the knee armor tend to curl in probably due to hanging in the locker and in cold weather this caused some issues too.

also, as an aside, this kit is not a summer suit, doesn't flow enough air in the northeast in 80+ temps. i switch to my BMW gear in those conditions.
