Verified Customer Reviews for Rukka Kallavesi Gore-Tex Textile Trousers
I have held fire on giving this review so there is an element of how they actually preform in here. After about 5 months of daily commuting about 50 miles including a fair amount of motorway over the British winter, I can say they are 100% waterproof - you would expect that from trousers that cost this much. They really are not cheep but the fabric is second to none and you can feel the quality throughout. This gives me confidence that they will preform in a slide. If you have not yet tried it, Laminate is perfect for those who use daily and don't have time to dry kit and again works well in not absorbing the water. Even after being out in the heaviest rain, they are generally completely dry in a couple of hours. Being 3 layer they are a little stiff at first but this does ease a little with use. My only real concern when buying was that the leather panels would soak up water and 'wet out' but this is not the case at all - probably due to the quality of the leather Rukka use. Sizing is on the small side and I would defiantly try before you buy. Venting seems good but I bought these to survive the very worst weather and wear leather in the summer. Along with the jacket they are superb in the middle of winter and despite a hefty price tag, I would buy again. As ever I can't knock SBS service and they price matched these for me with no hassle at all.
Very warm, 100% waterproof. A little stiff to begin with, they are easing with use. Good standard of armor.
Fit well when on bike but gather up when off bike. Not the trousers' fault, I'm just in between on the leg lengths so ordered the std length rather than the short.
I purchased these to replace my aging RST textile trousers which were consistently leaking. Although very expensive compared to some alternatives the quality in the material and design does make these trousers worth considering, especially if you are also purchasing the jacket. Always try before you buy if you can. I ordered a couple of sizes and glad I did so as the inner liner does mean you may need to go up a size (or two). Hoping these last another 10 years! Great servce from SBS.
Good quality gear, when on sale good price too. Not a latest garment but had have some good ratings on other users
Waterproof even in driving rain; and well vented with two vents on each leg when needed in hot weather.
The cargo pockets could do with being fractionally longer, and the braces slip in their gripper over hours of riding. Thigh armour tends to get uncomfortable after 80 minutes. Consider removing it.
Bought these to use whilst Sportsbikeshop returned my Ruckas for repair, not a bad fit have ridden in light rain and they seem waterproof really good value for money
I went out in the rain I was Dry all the way through
The most comfortable bike trousers I've had and I'm 100% convinced there worth the money. I'm 5ft7 & 34" waist (purchased large-short trousers)everything fits spot on even the trouser armor is in the right places which is strangely difficult to find being a shorty. The outlast material is magic (possibly witchcraft) I've no idea how it works but it does, keeps me warm and cool and so far I've just been riding in temps between 7 & 22'c and without the inner lining. Also torrential rain is no longer a problem. My only slight gripe is the pockets zips are quite tight to get stuff in and out. The jacket is also at good if not better.
Having decided on purchasing the Rukka Kallavesi jacket, I decided to purchase the jeans at the same time. As with the jacket, I can honestly say it's first class. Having ridden many miles with the recent heavy rain, it's performed outstandingly. Not a drop of water has entered. If you're serious about touring and your budget allows, then look no further!
These are great warm and definitely waterproof ride all year round in all weathers had hein Gericke kit for 20yrs the quality of these is as good or better and look like they will last just as long if they're cared for. Sports bike shop had good prices and good delivery can not be faulted far better than most motorcycle outlets !
Owned many clothing brands over the years and keep gear for several years until I need to replace it, had my last suit for 10 years and still looks brand new so sold it and bought this suit, as I like quality stuff that will last. Quite simply this is the best gear money can buy, being in the UK the amount of rain and weather conditions in all seasons we get, this suit is totally justifiable for our climate and is just bombproof. Quality materials, state of the art fabrics and armour in all the right places and makes you feel secure like wearing full leathers but with all the benefits of being textile and the sizing is pretty good from the charts and true to size I felt. Material is stiff at first for a while but after a few rain showers/wear becomes much more moulded to your body shape and relaxes a bit more, just like anything new. Buy once and forget about it. Quality over quantity for me, this is my only main suit now and have a mesh jacket for very warm weather. Perfect, worth every penny.
Bought Jacket and trousers. As a suit it work exceptionally well in all weathers and is very comfortable
