Rukka AiRider Jacket 4.7 5 11 11
Could have been great, but............. I came within a hair's breadth of buying this jacket, because I love the quality of Rukka. The deal breaker for me was the grossly inadequate magnetic collar closure, which is essentially non-functional and worthless. Wearing the jacket, all you have to do is move your head to one side or the other and the collar tab comes undone, due to the cheap, weak magnets Rukka used. Nothing Rukka makes is inexpensive, and to use these weak magnets in what would have otherwise been an excellent summer jacket was a huge disappointment. I hope Rukka will take my criticism to heart and rectify this flaw, as even a velcro closure would have been better than this cheesy magnet closure. If you don't care about the collar closure, then this is a great jacket, but if you want full functionality, it's just not there. July 12, 2014
Great jacket! Not quite as shown. I used this jacket in a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains and it performed as expected. The temperature ranged from lower 50s to the low 90s. A windproof layer underneath was all I needed at the lower temperatures. When it was hot this this jacket really performs. It actually feels like you not wearing a jacket at all when you are moving, it flows that much air. When I stopped the jacket really did not get uncomfortable at all with it unzipped. I highly recommend this jacket for when the temperatures rise. One thing to note on the grey colored jacket is that the Rukka logos on the front and back of the jacket are not the color shown in the pictures. The logos are not a bright red color (that almost matches the zipper color) but is a washout orange color. Also the piping on the back of the neck is silver not red as shown. I rather have the colors as shown. If the supplier changes colors the pictures and videos of the product should be updated. I love the jacket so much I will not be returning it, but would be even happier if the colors were correct to the description. June 27, 2014
Great Jacket! This is a great jacket for summer riding. I am used to the standard mesh style that look much worse. My biggest issue was my right sleeve zipper pull ripped off the first time i zipped it, not worth sending it back in my opinion. Fit is generous, I am 6 foot 7 with a 48 inch chest and a 36 inch waist. I ordered a size 60 and it's perfect with the free back protector, a little loose in the belly but the velcro tabs help with fit. Overall, well worth the price, it's pricey yes but cheaper than hospital bills! June 16, 2014
Incredible Jacket!!!! I know the price for this is high, but you get what you pay for. This jacket is extremely well built and the airflow is insane. It dries in seconds on the bike if you get wet. Definitely a summer jacket only. Everything on the jacket can be operated with gloves on as well. I like this Jacket so much I’m already saving for the 1200$ merlin jacket they make. June 15, 2014
Good one This is a great warm weather jacket. I've worn mesh type jackets before and this flows air just about as well. There seems to be a little more restriction than an open mesh design so the air kind of oozes through rather than passes but the effect is the same. Rukka's D3O armor is huge - the best shoulder coverage of any other armor I've used and the elbow-forearm are second only to the armor in my BMW jacket which come down to the wrist. The Cordura AFT drapes very lightly and is free-moving. I compared this jacket to the similarly priced Klim Induction and the light weight and flexibility of the Rukka, paired with the complete airflow as opposed to mesh panels on the other made it an easy choice. I would prefer the logos were embroidered over printed. The material in the sleeves is so flexible that it makes closing the cuff zippers difficult especially if the velcro is closed tightly. These are small gripes. The jacket really flows, looks good and it's a good price for Rukka. June 14, 2014
Works as advertised Ventilation is excellent, even in very warm California weather. June 9, 2014
Fantastic I was looking for a summer jacket for Georgia and I decided to go with the Rukka AiRider. It's amazing how much air this jacket flows over the entire thing. Everything about this jacket feels high quality. I'm 6'4" and 150 lbs so I got a size 50. The fit feels good, the sleeves feel like they're about half an inch short, but I expected that and it still feels good. June 2, 2014
Rukka jacket This is a great summer jacket. You throw it on and ride. It doesn't have as much padding as my Klim Badlands jacket but flows more air. This should be a great Summer commuting piece. I like the style especially at the price point. May 26, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
John R: Very high tech safety equipment with good looks. Jun 16, 2014
Adam S: Reputation for quality, good design, upscale armor, water resistance, full airflow with greater abrasion resistance than mesh (probably). Also, because I'm not sure whether I'll choose the Klim Overland or the AirRider so I'm taking advantage of RevZilla's consumer friendly policies. Thanks for that. Jun 3, 2014
Robert W: This company makes the most innovative and protective gear you can find. All of my scandinavian friends wear this gear. May 19, 2014
jay b: rukka jackets look great on your revzilla models. the rukka air rider looks like a motorcycle jacket and not a pheasant hunting parka. May 5, 2014
A shopper asked: Hi, I'm looking to buy the Rukka AiRider or maybe an Airman jacket and wondering on sizing. I have a Rukka Cosmic in 54, the size is good. With the liner in a fraction small, without the liner a fraction large.How does the AiRider size compared with the Cosmic? 54 would be good? Thanks, David. Jul 4, 2014

Youri A: I bought an AirRider and got the same size as my Rukka Steel (older 2008 model). The model is now discontinued so I can't really compared to the Cosmic but mine is a short jacket. The AirRider is not stiff at all (don't hold very well on an hanger) and have no belt adjustment that make my Steel jacket very well fit. It's a loose fit for me but with the few adjustments at the minimum I'm ok with it. I'm a slim athletic built, hope this help. I've only worn it for a week by now and I think it's a very nice jacket for warm weather. Jul 4, 2014

A S: Since you already have a Rukka product and ithe size works for you I would stay with that 54. The sizing should be the same between the Rukka product lines according to Anthony. The sizing does run large. In my case I measured my chest and according to the Rukka sizing chart I should have taken a size 60. I listen to Anthony's advice and went one size down to a 58 the jacket fits perfect on me. With what I know about Rulkka sizing and the AirRider jacket I would stay with the 54. Good luck!

Robert W: I'm not sure compared to the cosmic. I called and according to the chart I would have been two sizes bigger than they carry. He said they run large, which they do and that I could drop two sizes no problem. He was spot on. I have enough room to layer up or wear a rain jacket beneath. It is an ultra comfortable and well built jacket. Well worth the added money over anything else. I hope that helps. Jul 7, 2014

Tariq R: David hi.

I have both the Airman and AirRider jackets. Rukka sizing remains consistent across both the jackets. I had to buy one size big for both. The correct size is a bit tight whereas the one size big is a bit lose. By "lose" I don't mean hanging rather that they don't like a snug fitted jacket.

Matt KStaff: This is a mesh jacket with no liner, so you would get wet! If you need waterproofing I'd look at the Rukka Airman Jacket, it is the same Cordura Air mesh material but the jacket includes a Gore-Tex waterproof liner. Apr 30, 2014
Reply to Matt Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Tariq R: It does not have a liner. Hence, it isn't rain-proof. I have the Rukka Airman which is rain-proof but is almost twice as expensive. May 18, 2014
