rukka nivala

10/10 fantastic jacket... you only get what you pay for. i tried it out with the trousers in torrential rain for about 20 miles and it performed admirably, bone dry and warm.well worth the money.

An excellent investment

very quality jacket as you would expect from Rukka. Did wear it in the rain and I must say I didn't got wet at all. Also very comfortable. Rukka could easily at this price include the level 2 back protector but being a bit bulky padding it was making the jacket what it shouldn't supposed to be in the first place. So it leaves it to the customer decision if to replace with level 2 or not. Really you don't need the level 2 if you are using the jacket on the road and not track. All in all a good investment and I wish I would bought this earlier in my biking career. But I think it's because I wasn't mentally prepared for this level as you have to learn from mistakes to realise and evolve

Brilliant jacket from Rukka

The fit is excellent and the quality is as expected for a premium jacket. Like most have said the stretch in the material makes it much more wearable than other jackets. I have only worn it once in the rain but I was bone dry after the ride. Yes it's pricey but it does the job very well.

First time I used this was riding with a group of Friends. Heavens opened and soon they were all complaining of getting wet. I hadn't realised it was that bad. Warm and dry. Very happy

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 sooner

Fabulous Rukka

I purchased this for the extra protection both armour and waterproofing. I was not disappointed. Nor should I be at the price! But for riding all weathers, it's top notch kit and worth every penny. Well thought out pockets. Fantastic quality and feel. And supremely warm, such that my heated jacket was turned right down . Best jacket I have had. Heartily recommended

Bone dry

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.

As good as they say it is!

I had been looking for a replacement for my trusty Heine Gerich and it came down to the Stadler Super Vent or the Rucka Nivala. With the Nivala already on special offer and with a personal additional 10% weekend discount, it was time to take the plunge. I visited Sportsbikeshop where the service was helpful and patient as always as I tried on different sizes and colours. The size 50 is perfect for my 39inch chest. Have just ridden a 300 mile day in temperatures as cold as 2c and the Nivala is a revelation. The cuffs fit over winter gloves and are draft free. The high neck and neoprene collar were comfortable all day. The internal pockets are large and easy to access. I like the crutch strap as I don't have a matching zip trouser (yet!) it is very comfortable and with the down liner I only needed a base layer and a thin mid layer to stay warm. And I do usually feel the cold so that is a very high standard of warmth. Have not ridden in rain but it's goretex pro and guaranteed so I know it will work. Only negative is the level 1 back protector. But this is a fabulous jacket and thanks to a great deal from Sportsbikeshop I'm now another convert to Rucka.

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.

Rukka Nivala jacket and pants

I happily give five stars to both the nivala suit and Sportsbikeshop. If you've read any negative reviews on this suit, they're wrong. This is the very best on all counts, bar non. Any bad press must have been wrote by the opposition. I bought the suit from Sportsbikeshop's Boston branch, the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. You really need to go and try these suits on if you're spending so much money. This branch seemed to have every size option I asked for. So to sum up, very pleased in all respects.

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.

Rockin Rukka

After trying for max discount on this jacket they came good in the new year, cheapest by far. Told it would be late when I enquired about it and turned up a day early. Win Win Jacket is a bit different to get into as it only has a single zip but latest technology hopefully keeps it watertight. Love the Rukka kit, this replaces my 4 year old jacket that still looks like the day I bought it and still waterproof.

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.
