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

Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black / Orange
July 24, 2018

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.

Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black / Orange
December 31, 2017


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.

You get what you pay for

This jacket is fits perfectly I ordered my normally size L. With the inner jacket on I can still fit a warm top underneath for winter riding. With it removed for warm weather riding the jacket doesn't flap in the wind and keeps you cool. Water just runs off. You get what you pay for, 6years warranty you can't go wrong.

Product Specification Variants 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).
