A cut above

Smart, oozes quality, technically very clever. I've had other gear that I thought was OK but this is in a different league. I haven't had a chance to try it in hot weather yet, but in the freezing cold I've been toast warm and in rain completely dry.

A top bit of kit. Superbly warm and dry, and I've been commuting in some pretty horrific weather this winter. Some great features, love the neoprene collar and the waterproof cuffs. But why only 4 stars? I don't like the windstopper inner jacket's very clever the way it fixes in, but I'd prefer a dedicated lining like the trousers, zipped at the top and bottom and into the sleeves. There's nothing holding the lining down at the back, so it tends to ride up a bit, and more annoyingly when taking the jacket off, the lining would rather stay on my arms than in the jacket. It's a bit of a tug of war, and it'll be interesting to see if the 2 buttons holding the lining sleeve in will be up to the task long term. It all seems to be a compromise to make the inner usable for 'everyday use' which I'll never do.

Great jacket for wet weather riding

Only used it so far with a journey to the NEC Bike Show from Cumbria last week. The temperature was down to 0 degrees C and whilst the jacket was waterproof in the sleet and rain over Shap, I found the jacket to be not as warm as my HG jacket. That said I only had my thermal base layer underneath the wind stopper fleece, perhaps I need to put more layers on. This is my first Rukka jacket so after reading all the good reviews I was expecting it to be a warmer jacket than experienced so far. The quality of the jacket is excellent, well made and looks as though it will last a lifetime. Really like the Goretex neck buff which stops that trickle of water getting through down your neck. Will be now looking if Santa will get me some Rukka pants!

Worth every penny

It's an expensive piece of kit, but it's is worth every penny. You can tell its a quality product as soon as you open the box, and fit was spot on. Had bought the bottoms 12 months earlier, now jacket to match same standard, and I've virtually lived in them since I bought them.

Top quality

Just as it says on the tin! Top quality product. Yes, it's a tad expensive but when it arrives you can clearly see why. Can't see how you could get any better than this for protection and durability. Feels like your putting on battle armour. The only small fault is that the inner coat sleeves are pretty difficult to attach to the inner sleeve buttons on the outer coat but that really is being picky. Sure I can live with it. It would be too hot to wear in hot weather even if you take out the inner jacket but if you're looking for a full on waterproof, durable jacket that will definitely protect you in any fall for 3 seasons then you need not look any further.

Quality's not cheap

First piece of Rukka kit I've bought. Oozes quality. Good construction, ergonomics are pretty good too including the zipper to affix to the trousers. Warm and comfortable. Buy one, you won't regret it!

Helpful and no nonsense

After spending a long time over considering buying a Rukka jacket I decided to go for it and after a quick chat with the sales team and after reading the reviews I was sure I would buy through Sportsbikeshop. The jacket arrived on time and I am so pleased with it and the service. Top job ! I went with a Medium size 52 and it fits perfect. I always take a Large in Alpinestars so gives you an idea on sizing differences. The jacket is perfect in every way. My only observation is that the liner can get a bit bunched up when putting it on but no big deal at all. Next I will be going for the Rukka armoured trousers.

Expensive but worth every penny. Never envisaged myself spending this sort of money on a jacket but what you get is bang on. Looking forward to a winter of cold wet riding. A dry and warm rider is a happy rider!

Superb, quality product

First Rukka Jacket I've ever gambled on and kicking myself for not going for them sooner. Quality definitely comes at a price but would certainly pay it again.

Product Specification Related Items


Rukka motorcycle clothing is renowned throughout the world for being the most technically advanced range on the market, designed to meet the strictest standards for both safety, and rider comfort. Founded in 1950, Rukka have been producing bike clothing since the late 80's with the entire Rukka motorbike range designed in house, as it has been since day one, at their base in Finland. The entire range is today manufactured according to their own Defence and Comfort performance standards, meeting even the strictest criteria set for weatherproofing and riding comfort.
Most Rukka motorcycle jackets and trousers carry the patented Rukka Air protectors, the only patented breathable shoulder, elbow, knee, shin and hip protectors on the market, functioning equally well in all weather conditions. This elastic mesh divides the possible impact into a wide area and acts as a shock absorber. When it comes to reflective materials, Rukka clothing is once again at the forefront of technology. Under normal daylight conditions, Rukka's reflective material appears normal but if directly lit by vehicle headlights in the dark, it reflects the light glaring white. The list of technical elements is almost endless with the use of top brand materials such as Gore-Tex, Armacor, Cordura, SuperFabric and D30 to name only a few.
Regardless of climate, hot or cold, rainy or sunny - Rukka clothing is designed to perform, ensuring both rider comfort and safety. Furthermore, all Rukka outerwear is covered by a 5 year warranty (2 years on gloves).
