Rukka AirMan Jacket 4.5 5 4 4
Temperature Ranges--Airman and Armas AIRMAN versus ARMAS temperatures: This is the information I wanted when buying both the Rukka Armas and the Airman. Subjective based on a year with ARMAS and 2 intense weeks with AIRMAN. ARMAS is clearly a cool weather jacket/ pants and the AIRMAN/AIRVISION warm weather. Here is my sense of the temperature ranges. (Skivvies, T shirt under both suits.) AIRMAN/AIRVISION JACKET/PANTS— WITH LINING: Sweet spot is 58F through 82F. Pretty comfortable into low 90s WITH the lining if moving. 95F a reasonable upper limit as you retain heat. (Why wear lining at 95F? Heavy thundershowers expected and temperature likely to plummet. Don't want to be soaked without the waterproof liner.) Getting cold down in the mid-50s with lining and skivvies. WITHOUT LINING: Sweet spot is 68-85F. Moves huge amount of air. Comfortable into the 90s where you hit a practical limit of just being too hot to be on a bike. 95F was no trouble, moving. Comfortable as any hot weather gear at this temperature. Black color is not a problem. I don't consider anything comfortable in muggy upper 90s. Down around 65F, it gets cool and I want the lining. ARMAS JACKET AND PANTS— WITH LINING: Sweet spot is 40F to 75F. Getting hot when you are not moving above 75F in direct sun. 78F is a practical upper limit. Can go much colder (easily low 30s) if you layer. WITHOUT LINING: Sweet spot is 55F to 80F (vents open). 83F is practical upper limit--there is good airflow but the sun adds more heat than the jacket can takeaway. Gets chilly below 52F—vents closed. Armas preferred when the temperature wont be above 80F and I know it will rain. Airman when I know it will be warmer and when I’m sure I wont need to ride much below 55F. Both ARMAS and AIRMAN/AIRVISION are excellent. I think there are a few little nits with the AIRMAN, but these are part of the compromise from putting the waterproof lining on the inside. On a warm sunny day, the AIRMAN is a joy to ride in. July 5, 2014
Great Jacket ! If you are a large guy, finding the right size is likely going to be tough. There are some strange anomalies in the fit. I'm 6' 2" 205 lbs size 58 very tight on the arms, and a little tight all round. Size 60 strangely large in the neck and crazy long arms. I work in apparel and really the grading and specs on the garment are strange. I had to buy the 60 but it feels a little big and the arms are simply way to long. That said, great make, great looking jacket and I'm keeping it. Revzilla service - great as always! June 2, 2014
Great jacket Great service from Revzilla. Fit was exactly to the sizing chart, and jacket has attracted comments already. Looks and feels perfect for the Sydney riding climate. Highly recommend. May 25, 2014
Great potential but disappointed I was so excited for this jacket and wanted so badly to love it, I had been looking at it online for a couple months as a pre-order item and bought it day 1 it was available, but I just finished shipping the jacket back. The first issue was that the jacket was incredibly small. Per Anthony's video I ordered a size down from the one the model was wearing, which for me was a 48. I am 5' 10" 175 pounds with a 40 inch chest, and I could not even zip the jacket closed. Per the Rukka size chart I should actually wear a size 52, and I believe that is probably accurate, but since the model in the video was wearing a size 50 with a 42 inch chest I thought the 48 would be perfect. I do have broad shoulders and have a somewhat athletic build, so maybe that is part of the issue. But besides not being able to zip the jacket I also found it fit really short. The inner liner ended at my belly button, which I found strange. I would think a bigger size would add room in the arms and chest, but I am unsure how much length you would gain. Maybe this is how Euro jackets are supposed to fit? Another issue, which may be a plus for some people, is that the jacket was incredibly light weight and the D3O armor was almost unnoticeable. I can definitely see how it would flow air nicely, but for me I want a jacket with a little more heft to it - it just makes me feel more secure in the case of a crash that the jacket would hold up. Also, I know the fabric is super high tech, but to me the texture felt like one of those free re-useable shopping bags stores are giving out all the time, which was weird to me. Overall I rated the jacket 4 stars because I thought the construction was really high quality and the tech features are amazing. I deducted a star because the fit was weird, and also for the price I feel like the back armor really should be included. I can see some people loving this jacket, but there were just too many issue for me to even want to exchange for the bigger size. At almost $1k I need to really love a jacket to justify the cost, and I just didn't love this jacket. I think I may end up with a less expensive Olympia Motoquest or maybe even a BMW drysuit jacket instead, both of which are more bulky but offer the more traditional weight and fit I am after.

Dean d: I have only worn mine a few times in weather that was about 22c. So not too warm yet. But, I can say despite the lack of numerous vents the jacket blows a lot of air through the material and is incredibly comfortable. I like this jacket a lot. On sizing - I am skinny tall (6-2") with long arms so that is an issue for me to find a jacket that fits my chest and is still long enough in the arms. I bought a size 50 and it is just perfect. I would love a bit more length in the arms but it is fine for me. And, a bit tighter in the chest but again with the euro cut of the jacket it works. You seem like a more average build so I think you could easily do a snug 50 or one size up. but for warm weather I think you could easily do a 50 - Anthony in vid says he wears a 50 Rukka and he is pretty big in the chest and arms but I suspect he wears his jackets quite snug too. The Airvision pant is the same matching material so for warm climes and to match I would use that. I only got one set of pants the AirMaxion pants but those are colder weather and laminated gortex - and such are not completely matching although you can barely tell - and all Rukka stuff seems to zip together regardless. I bought two jackets and a set of pants and I am very happy with the stuff! May 22, 2014

A shopper asked: I just got the jacket and wore it on a fairly warm day. I rode with the collar folded down, but the front tab kept flapping in the wind. Any thoughts on the best way to secure it? Folding it over and using the magnet doesn't seem to be secure enough. I'm thinking about adding a small piece of Velcro. May 3, 2014
