Customer Reviews for Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black / Orange
Best jacket I've ever bought
At this price it should be the best jacket I've ever bought, and it is by a mile. an hour after buying it I was riding through a hailstorm and loving every minute. I was warm and dry and felt totally safe in all the d30 armour. The chest armour is a new one for me but you dont even feel that's it's there once your riding. The goretex velcro collar is great and stops Md splashes of water coming up under your helmet. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? So far, 100%. Comfy and warm? Totally. Go and try one one and you can see where the money is. Treat it as an investment. And you can't go wrong with a 6 year warranty. Wish I had bought it soonerRead more
I truly tested the jacket and trousers out last week with a ride to the mumbles Swansea and back to London on the M4 (work not a social ride!) Mid November weather living up to its expectations and bucketing it down both ways, I arrived both ends bone dry, I've had other good jackets but nothing anywhere near this! I kept expecting to feel the leak somewhere as it was torrid weather. All I can say is it's very expensive but If you want to ride all year round it's a must and you won't be disappointed.Read more
Top end jacket.
Bought this as a replacement for my alpinestars jacket as the zipper and velcro was failing. Impressed with the quality. Has been warm and draught free down to 2 deg. Dry in a heavy downpour and dried quickly afterwards ready to wear again unlike the astars one. It cost a lot but with a 6 year warranty I hope it lasts longer making it more economical in the long run. Great service and fast delivery by SBS as usual.Read more
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 themRead more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more

Waterproof aramid and Cordura Gore-Tex jacket with separate thermal lining and full armour package
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).
