I beg to differ, I think it'll suit a Spyder very nicely

Superb cold and wet weather jacket and pants, but not very adaptable for warmer times.

I have an Armas suit, and on the west coast of Tasmania in the middle of winter, nothing else comes close, but when it warms up, well that another story.

I also have a Kalifonia jacket, and Kalamus trousers, which have flaps and such to get the air flowing.

The Armas zip, sorry "closure" takes some getting used to, but is worth the effort, as it is truly water proof.

Not a cheap suit, if you intend it for four seasons riding, but I am very glad I spent the money.

1600eur + shipping!!! for a cold/wet weather suit!! That's dearer than Klim gear.

I'd want something I could use all year round for that doe.

Looks very nice though.

Thanks guys.

I met the Rukka dealer tonight and after trying on the jacket and pants, I walked out with them tucked under my arm. Yep, pretty bloody expensive but I dont mind paying a bit extra for quality.

Sort of loses its credibility given I own a BMW.

I reckon the same thing that made you choose the BMW is what made you buy the Rukka.

I'm with you mate. I chose the full Armas suit sight unseen and never been happier.

As Andy says though it's goin to be a bit too hot at times in summer...

Do not wear it at night again, the reflective material is not working.

Reflective material works fine mate, I just turned the flash off as it was too bright.
