Excellent summer jacket
I read a lot of misleading reviews before I bought this jacket. It sat in my wishlist for over a year as I sat on the fence. Ultimately, I decided to pull the trigger and rely on Revzilla's great return policy to bail me out if necessary.

Fit: I'm 6'2, 180lbs with a 39" chest. I'm glad I ignored the advice to size down to a 48 since the 50 fits me exactly like my other size 50 jackets. For some reason, the sized down jacket on the model looks baggy and unsupportive while the same size I wear in Dianese and Revit fits great. I'm 100% sure the model has a bigger chest, shoulders, and arms than I do. Strange.

Someone mentioned the fear of jacket being too easy to pull up in a slide but it comes with a crotch strap. While leather has many protection advantages over this jacket, but I think this jacket with a crotch strap will stay put better than a leather jacket not connected to the pants.

Someone else mentioned the back protector being too thin but it's nearly as wide as my other protectors. Someone mentioned that it slips around loosely but not if you insert it into the inner pockets correctly.

As far as I can tell, this jacket is more breathable and cooler than anything but pure mesh while being more protective than anything but leather.

There's no doubt I'll wear leather up to 85 degrees but for the really hot days, when you feel like sacrificing a little protection for comfort, I don't think you can do better than this jacket.

I gave it 3/5 for value because the price for jacket and protector is high for a niche jacket.

I gave it 3/5 for comfort because it pulls under the arm pits a little and the elastic crotch strap is less comfy than swinging in the wind.

I gave it 4/5 for protection because 5/5 is reserved for leather.

Saved my Skin and Bones
I was riding to meet my Brother and Friends in Waco Texas to leave on a 10 day Colorado trip. I made it to Conroe Texas and was T-Boned buy a Guy in a Chevy truck. The impact sent me tumbling down the HI way. Totaled my bike! I know that my Arai helmet and my Rukka Airider saved my bacon. My only injury was four broken ribs front and back. The jacket was scuffed up but intact...I may not have had the broken ribs if I had the Rukka back Armor but it was not included with the jacket. I have since purchased it. The Rukka armor works and the Rukka Cordura saved lots of my hide!

Not quite "all things to all people"
I've been really looking for a summer weight jacket that will withstand the Southern California heat, but still offer protection. When I heard about the AiRider, and the new Cordura that allowed air to flow through, I was pretty excited. So I ordered it from RevZilla, along with the Alpinestars T-GP R Air, and the Klim Induction, two others that I was interested in.

When the jackets arrived, I subjected them to a simple test. I wore my lightest t-shirt, set up a big box fan on a table, turned on the fan, then put on each jacket (after taking out any interior wind-proof liners) to see how much air flowed.

Disappointingly, the Rukka flowed significantly less air than the liner-less Klim. This is not to say that the new technology didn't flow *any* air--I think there was more air coming through the Rukka than through the non-mesh portions of the AStars textile jacket--but don't believe the hype: The new Cordura still does not flow as much air as traditional mesh.

A couple of good points: On the upside, the Cordura fabric is more abrasion resistant than traditional mesh, so you're not getting as much air, but you are getting more protection. On that note, the internal D3O shoulder and elbow armor pads are HUGE (look at the RevZilla video for details). They cover WAY much more area than most similar armor in other jackets, and upon putting the jacket on, I definitely felt secure. So, if you want something that flows *slightly* more air than a traditional textile jacket, but less than a mesh jacket, and you don't mind paying a premium price, this is not a bad choice.

Also, the sizing notes are correct -- I'm 6'0", 170 lbs, 38-inch chest, and normally wear a Size 50 in all "Euro"-sized jackets. I ordered a 50 in the Klim and A-Stars jackets, and they fit me fine. I needed to go down to the size 48 in the Rukka, however.

Just what I was looking for
Wow, my first review of any product, ever, and I'm the first one. I was a little hesitant about buying a jacket online since I've tried many on at the local bike dealers and haven't found many that fit well. I'm 6'2", 180 with a slim build and long(ish) arms. I got the size 50 and it fit perfectly. Not to tight and not too loose. Arm length is adequate to slightly short, but I expected that. Took it out for a ride as soon as I got it, and felt that the air flow was as good as expected. It was 65 degrees at the time and I was almost chilly. I'm sure it will do well in the 80s and90s. If your looking for a summer jacket and don't need or want all the liners to deal with I highly recommend the Ruuka.

Cool when moving, like the style.
I like to keep the safety gear on regardless of the weather. I haven't had a proper "mesh" jacket before, but the AiRider really does move the air even though you can't see thru it. I rode with it when it was in the low 90F's, on road and some off road. It worked great, but its best when you are moving. There are no vents to provide a more direct venting, so moving is good. Still, its light weight enough so its not too bad when standing still in the sun.
The jacket runs a size big, but you might want it a little big if you ever want to put a light jacket underneath for a cool morning ride.
Room for improvements:
Have to zip the zipper all the way up for the magnetic collar to stay attached. Magnets should be strong enough so that wouldn't be required. The collar, in practice, isn't really adjustable, the zipper-up defines the fit around your neck.
The zipper attachment for pants is large. I would like to remove it. Maybe Rukka could use a small zipper to hold that piece on, so it could come off for those of us not using Rukka pants in the summer.
Should include back protection.

Not "bullet proof" as described
Maybe my expectations were too high, but I spent the extra money on this jacket based on the commentary that I should expect "best in class protection". A low speed spill resulted in a bruised and road rashed elbow - the shoulder area protected well, but there's not much left of the jacket in that area either.
I will down grade my expectations and spend my insurance money on something else.

Best lightweight jacket w/ protection I've ever owned
I have a few thousand miles on the jacket now and am impressed with the ability of this jacket to flow air on warm and hot days. The only annoyance I found and think it has been mentioned before, is the magnetic closure at the neck does not seem to be strong enough and easily opens.... otherwise, this is my "go to" jacket every time

Very happy I took the plunge
tl dr: This jacket is awesome.

I, probably very much like you, have a tough time paying over 400 dollars for a jacket but this is no ordinary jacket. This thing breathes as if I were wearing fish net stockings. Make no mistake my friends, I went to Puget Sound University so I know a thing or two about cross dressing and fish nets. Mesh always made me a little nervous in regard to how flimsy it seems. This material is not flimsy. Construction is solid but very lightweight. The armor is surprisingly flexible and large like Anthony states in the video which is great. The jacket looks awesome and Rukka pays attention to details. Stitching is solid and most impressive to me is the zipper is rugged on the Airider unlike my Icon Raiden Patrol zipper that comes undone from the bottom up before I hop on the bike. I am 5' 9" and 175. The size 50 fits a might large but perfect when wearing a sweater underneath. Tested this jacket in 85 degree PNW sun yesterday and air flow was great. It felt really nice at any speed. The entire jacket flow air well. I have a mesh jacket but it only flows air in the chest in the mesh part. Also, tested the Airider this morning in 50 degree weather and with a sweatshirt it was about perfect. A little cool but a 40 minute commute was no problem. Very glad I got this jacket and I never thought I would own Rukka gear based on the price. One small con I noticed is since it does flow air so well throughout the entire jacket, if you leave the pocket unzipped the air flow will flip the pocket inside out and I imaging the contents might end up on the asphalt. There is also no back protection but I will buy an add on. I am very happy with this purchase. Note: Rukka warranties their craftsmanship for 5 years against defects. Revzilla, thanks for the quick shipping.

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.

Let there be breeze
I was worried about buying this jacket. I had concerns about the "over sizing" and getting it wrong for a reasonably expensive purchase (yeah I know they will replace, but that's a hassle I didnt want, Im in New Zealand!). I weigh 180lb and just under 6 foot. I got a size 50 which fits me fine. I'd say my arms are a regular length but my body is slightly on the long side. 50 is my normal size.

The jacket is a short style compared to my other jacket, an RST Pro Series Paragon III, at first I thought maybe too short, but that's just the style of these jackets (European cut). The risk of riding up is reduced by using the jock strap, although that takes a little getting used to and is the reason I dropped the comfort rating back one notch, otherwise this is a comfortable jacket. Especially while riding.

It looks cool and it feels cool on the road. My first impression was wow! this thing really is well vented in the arms and body, its a huge improvement over my RST for warm weather riding, which I had been finding quite uncomfortable on hot days. A few times I found myself looking down to see if maybe the arms had come loose or something - it felt like the breeze was blowing directly onto my skin. I notice the ventilation from around 15mph which is about half the speed of when I notice the venting on my RST.

The jacket feels substantial, it looks well made, the seams appear strong and the armour is top grade. I opted for the additional back protector which is not included with the jacket. That feels substantial too and I expect it to protect me if I ever need it. I have to assume overall this fabric is not going to perform as well as leather in an accident, but I do expect it to be last several years under normal riding conditions. I have no concerns about the jacket being safe and durable.

This is not a cheap jacket, but its far from the most expensive. I have only ridden in warm weather but with a thin warm layer underneath I think you could stretch it into cooler conditions, although it is reportedly not waterproof so you would need to deal with wet situations either by using a rain proof over the top or get a dedicated wet weather jacket (the RST is a great choice for cold and or wet conditions) I gave it a good because it is on the pricey side, but it is a premium product at a reasonable price for what it offers. I tried a few other summer jackets but no others feel as safe and sturdy as this and the ventilation is excellent.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Rukka AiRider Jacket. Keep in mind the shorter style and get ready to feel the breeze!

First and foremost I was looking for a summer jacket and was having a hard time finding a mesh jacket to fit the bill. After reading some reviews and an extensive search I decided on the Rukka AiRider. I hope it is everything I've read about it and more. I really like the style and protective function of this jacket. I think it looks great too. I hope I'm not let down especially given the price, I'll let you know...

My husband has had an earlier version of this jacket for about 20 years. Unfortunately, its time to get a new one since we have to manually adjust the shoulder armor every time he puts it on. He's tried on several other jackets but none compare to this one. It will be an extremely Merry Christmas for him.

petehemlock on Sep 23, 2014
Living in California, I wanted a good jacket with lots of airflow due to the heat. The jacket is lite when you wear it and it flows a lot of air. Plan to use this year round with a thin liner for when it gets cooler from another jacket.
Symon B on Sep 17, 2014
I live on okinawa where it get's extremely hot and humid so I bought this jacket solely based on the fact that it's made for summer temperatures. I also loved the safety features that it has with the pads in the elbows and the reflective logos. Plus you have to admit, it's a pretty slick looking jacket.
Constantine M on Aug 4, 2014
Very high tech safety equipment with good looks.
John R on Jun 16, 2014
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.

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.
A shopper on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
The description says that the back protection is sold separately, but in the video Anthony says it comes standard. Which is it??
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As much as I respect Anthony, but I believe that this time he got it wrong. The bracket doesn't come with the back protection. You have to buy it separately. That said, by far, it is the best summer time jacket I have ever bought.
Is it Red or Orange on the Grey model?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's orange on the grey jacket. And a red logo on the black jacket.
Very confused by sizing on Rukka. I am 6'4'' and about 43'' chest. Would 52 fit? Or should it be 54? It looks very baggy in all reviews. I wear 54 in Dainese and BMW jackets, 56 AStars and XXL in Rev'it. Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Talk to Revzilla about their return policy ... they are great that way and if it doesn't fit the way you would like, you have that return option if need be...
I am 5'8 and 160lbs with a 44" chest and have a 52 which fits me a little loosely as I like the option of throwing on a layer underneath for those cool nights..

It's a GREAT jacket and my primary "go to" ... only wishing now that I had gone with the lighter color since moving to Texas
What country is this jacket made in?
A shopper on May 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hails from Finland but was manufactured in....you guessed it, China. I like the jacket, it looks nice and is not as heavy as my Klim Badlands. A bit chilly, but it's been forty degrees. Should be great for the summer.
How would this jacket handle rain?
Adam S on Apr 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Looking to purchase the Rukka AiRider but have a question concerning size. Everything I have read on this jacket says it runs on the rather large side, with some saying go down two sizes. I am 6'2", about 225 with a 45" chest. Size chart says I should be in a 58 but it would seem I should be in a 54 or 56. What size would most likely fit the best without be too snug?
David Z on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'1" and weight 192 lbs and have a ~41" chest. (42" suit coat). In Rukka I wear a 50 (both the AiRider and Armaxis) . However, this size does not allow for much (if any) layers. I wear a t-shirt or wicking shirt underneath...nothing else. The size guide had me at a 52-54. Both were too bid for me. I'm thinking a 54 would fit you well with little room for insulation. Go with 56 if you want to wear more than a t-shirt with it. Note on Rukka products: while I LOVE them, they are a pain in the butt to fit right. I usually buy a couple of sizes ahead of time because the size seems to vary from model to model and year to year.
Is this Jacket much more breathable than the Dianese Air Frame ?

BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have both. It flows so well that on a 92 f day with multiple thunderstorms I never took it off. Most comfortable piece of gear I've ever worn.
Anyone know what denier the Cordura AFT that's used is?
A S on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a propiatary fabric. It has held up awesome for me.
I´m 6'0 (1.82m) and about 195 with a 43" chest, I´m pretty much the size of Peter, that is on the Jacket sizing guide. I have an Dianese Airframe Jacket size 54 that fits well, but a little more snug than I would like. I hear Rukka runs a little large, do you think I should go for the 54 or 52 size?
Paulo Bruno F L A on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: they do run large! I would go smaller ... you can always exchange ... RevZilla is awesome on exchanges and getting you what you need quickly
