Customer Reviews for Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black / Orange

Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black / Orange
March 3, 2019

Comfortable, adaptable, safe

I had heard that laminated goretex gear is expensive, stiff and uncomfortable. Ok so it is certainly expensive, but is it worth it? I ride year round, 6 days a week - having ridden through a wet UK winter in this jacket, I can confirm that it has not leaked once (even the pockets are watertight) and is comfortable for all-day riding. The thermal liner is ok, but not as warm as I would like (easily augmented with a decent base layer). Recent sunny weather has not caused an issue - the thermal liner goes in the provided grab bag, the vents zip open... A recent 60 mph crash vs a presumably blind driver pulling out, left me with just minor bruising (and a wrecked bike).. Expensive but worth the money if you can afford them

Well made and true to size. Comfy, warm and great attention to detail both in the design and manufacture. There's no Armortech in the back, but that's arguably an area that doesn't need it and the added stretch aids comfort. if I had to pick, I'd say the outside pockets could be a little deeper, but otherwise this is a great jacket. The chest protector makes it even warmer. Several hours in 0-3 degrees and no problem with the just the Rukka Outlast vest on underneath. Yet to see how well the venting works in the summer.

At last something that will last.

Having previously purchased a premium RICHA C Change Bike suit and been let down by poor performance and dreadful customer support by the manufacturer I took the plunge and purchased a Rukka bike suit. First impressions are brilliant. No more soggy bottoms, warm and very comfy. The zips and fasteners feel very durable. Weight wise this is no heavier than my old suit but the quality looks and feels like it is on another level. I use this suit every day and having something that is safe, will deliver what's its designed to do and be durable is vital to me. As the saying goes "Buy once, buy right" This is so right.

The Best

I have always steered myself away from Rukka clothing, mainly because of price but also the lack of effective ventilation in the jackets. Well,50% of my two points has been fixed, the ventilation on this Rukka is a revelation, it works superbly well so is the build quality, it's simply outstanding. As to the other 50% i,e, the price. There is no getting away from it,it is cripplingly expensive. That said,it is the best jacket on the market today, it's brilliant.So re-mortgage the house,sell the wife and kids into slavery and go buy one, you won't regret it. Had it's first outing in the rain last weekend,(Storm Calum). Pleased to report, I was absolutely bone dry and warm all weekend. Happy Bunny! As usual,excellent service from SBS, thank you.

Worth the cash

Highly protective, chest protector is a hug bonus. Vents work well, with short gloves you do get air through the sleeves as well which helps keep you cool. Liner seems really good, and was warm enough at around 3 degrees. Have only had one wet ride, of course it was waterproof but the water also doesn't soak into the top layer so it dries quick as well. 5 year guarantee is a bonus for sure.

Quality producrt & service

As ever the service from the Sportsbikeshop was outstanding. The jacket is everything that I was looking for and I cannot believe how light it's is to wear. Due to the weather we are experiencing I haven't had the chance to try it in the wet but I have never had any issues with Goretex before, so do not foresee their being a problem in this case.

Quality product

I would describe this product as comfortable, well fitting and not bulky. It is warm and waterproof. I went out in the rain and wind without issue. The neck collar is also very effective at keeping out the wind and rain. The chest protector undoubtably adds to maintaining body heat. Hopefully I will not need to write a review on the effectiveness of the body armour, but it fits well in all the right places.

Having tried a number of jackets from the excellent Sportsbikeshop and returned them and looking at various YouTube videos I decided to go for this Rukka jacket and matching trousers. OK they are very expensive but you get what you pay for. I took them out today for a 50 mile trip round the Peak District in temperatures just above freezing and I was so comfortable and warm as toast with my outlast base layer on. The D30 armour for the chest gives you even more protection than most other jackets and is not uncomfortable or intrusive. I could easily have spent all day on the bike but chores got in the way. I haven't tried it in the rain yet but I feel sure it will perform as expected. With 6 years warranty I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Rukka Nivala jacket, and trousers, to anybody who wants to get the best kit on the market. Thanks to Sportsbikeshop for putting up with me sending so many jackets and trousers back to them.

Absolutely worth it

Expensive, but the quality is unbeatable. Warm, waterproof and very comfortable - should last years and does exactly what it says! If you ride in the winter this is what you need. Wish I had forked out for the best years ago!

Should have bought one sooner

Winter approaching and I needed a new coat, did lots of research and went on lots of forums and ended up opting for the Rukka, I wasn't disappointed and wish I'd bought one of these years ago, would have saved myself a lot of money! Extremely well made as you would expect, tough and durable, I'm a large size 44 inch chest but I ordered the XL and it fits perfectly, the D30 armour is great, shoulders and elbows is massive compared to any other armoured jackets I've had, I took the back protector out though as I prefer to wear a separate back protector, personal preference, there's armorcor in all the right places, I think it could possibly of benefited with maybe some on the chest and some on the back, the D30 armour is also only level 1, that said I don't race therefore level 1 is ample. The jacket is extremely warm, even without the separate down liner and I tested it for the first time in rain the other day, and it really was a torrential downpour, I stayed perfectly dry! The lining jacket doesn't zip into the main coat but that suits me fine, I hate those fiddly zips on some other coats I've had, it does say you can wear the insert as a stand alone coat, and that is true, it is however quite short. My only really picky gripe with this coat is that the sleeves tend to ride up a bit when I'm riding the bike, a Yam S10, that said I love it, great investment, I feel totally protected, warm and dry, would I recommend it .......Hell yes. As always great service from SBS 5 star.

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).
