Rukka Airway Gore-Tex Jacket

The ultimate in warm weather protection, the Rukka Airway Jacket is your Defence and Comfort in extreme heat conditions. Able to take on rain and heat while keeping you dry and cool, the Airway offers unparelled ventilation using Cordura AFT with AirPower Technology.  

The exterior shell provides substantial abrasion resistance, while still allowing the entire body of the jacket to function like mesh. In this manner, there are no vents on the Airway jacket as the entire jacket flows air inherently. The removable liner is made from Gore-Tex Performance Shell and is intended to also be worn as a destination liner. The main zipper on the liner uses the Gore Lockout closure to ensure a constant seal against water. Rukka's RVP Air protectors are included in the back, shoulders, and elbows. The Rukka Airway Jacket rounds out with additional features like its magnetic collar closure, soft neoprene collar, reflective detailing, as well as the two interior and two exterior pockets with generous storage capacity.


  • Constructed from knitted Cordura AFT with AirPower Technology for riding in warm weather
  • Cordura AFT is 2-7 times more durable than nylon, polyester and cotton
  • Cordura AFT is knit in such a way that it allows airflow to keep you cool through the entirety of the jacket
  • Two-layer knitted Cordura AFT at elbows for extra strength
  • Removable 3-Layer Gore-Tex Performance Shell inner jacket with minimum weight and pack volume can be worn as a stand-alone jacket
  • Gore-Tex shell has a waterproof Gore Lockout main closure
  • Gore Lockout closure is tooth-free and ensures a constant waterproof seal
  • Liner has soft flannel backer


  • RVP Air Backpad included
  • RVP Air Protectors at the shoulders and elbows
  • RVP Air Protectors are extremely breathable, very light weight and distribute the impact better than hard protectors
  • RVP Air Protectors meet the requirements of CE Norm prEN 1621-1 2010

Other Features:

  • Intended to be paired with the Rukka Airvision Pants
  • Soft neoprene in collar
  • Collar with magnet closure
  • Width adjustment on upper and lower arm
  • Zipper gusset adjustments in hem on both sides
  • Jacket and trousers have connecting zippers
  • Jacket has two outside pockets in front and two inside waterproof pockets - one including an integrated mobile phone holder
  • Two pockets in the inner jacket
  • Reflective details
  • The Rukka warranty is valid for 5 (five) years from the date of purchase against faults in material or workmanship.

Zippers will not hold If you have to stop and repair the zipper engagement a couple of times a ride due to movement then the hacket is pretty much useless. The jacket is too tight on the fitment you say? Hmmm okay what is going to happen in a crash skinny? January 22, 2015
High quality I ordered this to have a protective jacket that flows for hot we have in Hawaii all year. Jacket is well-constructed and very nicely designed. I normally wear Medium, so ordered the 48. It fits "just right," but the zipper is just slightly tight at the neck, but overall not too bad. The only negative is that the protective elbow armor is very uncomfortable when you fist put on the don't notice it in riding position, but just having the jacket on is irritating (to me) along my elbows and arms where the armor rubs. Not that big of a deal, but... Overall, I highly recommend. You cannot go wrong with Rukka products. Overall very happy with the purchase and highly recommend. Make sure you do your measurements!

Great fitting jacket! Although I have yet try the rainrotection on this jacket, it fits greatvandvlooks terrific. I will buy the matching pants soon! November 10, 2014
Great Jacket - Quality & Features I live in Dubai, so I needed a jacket with great airflow. The Airway Jacket did not disappoint. This jacket flows more air than any other jacket. It is cut high at the waist which is different than other jackets I have had but it makes it comfortable when on the bike. Like the styling very much and great features like the rain layer and arm fasteners. The zipper of the rain layer takes a bit of getting used to but seems to work (I have some concerns over the zipper's long-term durability). Over-all a great jacket with great build quality. October 13, 2014
Best protection It's the best protective jacket I've ever worn. It feels substantial and surprisingly cool even in 100 degree weather. I'm transitioning into ATGATT, and this is the first jacket I feel comfortable wearing all year long. October 6, 2014
Great summer riding jacket, but a separate Gortex jacket inside First few rides have been very comfortable. With Gortex jacket inside, it can get a bit warm. But without, great ventilation and protection! Rode during a rain storm with Gortex jacket inside, stayed nice a dry. Will ride to Sturgis with this jacket, so that will be the true test . July 28, 2014
Comfortable, great quality, very airy I'm 6'5", 230 pounds, in good shape and fairly broad-shouldered. I went with the size 58 and it fits me perfectly. I just test-drove the jacket in 30 degree Celsius summer weather for a couple hours; it's nice and airy, the breeze flows through the Cordura material effortlessly. I thought it wouldn't, given how tough the material looks/feels compared to the usual mesh jackets, but it's really quite well-ventilated. Nice and large armor blocks at neck, forearms, shoulders, and back still let the air through. June 28, 2014
Nice Jacket, but rather bulky First off I like to say I really like this jacket. Two of the main reasons I got it was because of the gore-text liner and all of the reflectivity. It has armor in the shoulders, elbows, and back. Which is all a good thing but it does make the jacket very bulky. Now I must say that this is my first jacket so I could be that way for pretty much all jackets. Because of the bulk it makes putting on book bags or turning your head a bit harder to do. Also while I'm riding at times the back pad rises up and makes it harder for me to tip my head up. Other than that I think its a great buy. Almost forgot to mention that it is cut short so keep that in mind when your thinking about buying it. May 25, 2014

Ian O: Jacket looks awesome...versatile - hoping it becomes my main jacket for years to come. Jul 17, 2014
DANNY B: Webbikeworld provided a very comprehensive review on this jacket. As a SOCAL resident, this jacket may provide all the protection I need for year-round driving. Since it was time to upgrade my eight year old jacket, I decided to splurge on a quality item. Jul 11, 2014

Marc F asked: I'm very interested in the Rukka Airway Jacket(black/yellow) but there is no image? I'd be god for a size 50.
My other choice would be the Rukka Flexius (black/black)(I would have loved black on yellow replacing the red)

How warm is the Flexius in summer (Quebec summer!) and how warm is the Airway for fall?

Kevin K: Hi Marc,
I purchased this jacket primarily for late spring through early fall season with my focus being more on venting in the hot summer months (I live in the Philadelphia area). The jacket comes with a zip-in liner which works really well for days that might start out in the 50's (F) but then get warm later in the day.
The jacket doesn't flow air as much as a true mesh but for your Quebec summer I think it would be perfect and with the liner it's plenty warm for cooler days. It's shorter in the body than a touring jacket which is nice for the warmer months. My only gripe about it is the type of zipper used in the liner is the lockout zipper which is a rubber interlock type. It's very waterproof but it's stiff especially near your neck if you zip it all the way up (I think they moved away from this in a later revision so you might not get this). otherwise the jacket looks really great and very high quality in everything about it.
Hope that helps.

David C: Hi Marc,
I have the Rukka Airway and have to say it is an awesome jacket. The outer jacket is actually a summer jacket, the breeze flows through it easily and will keep you cool even in hot temps. The liner that comes with it is great. It is waterproof/windproof and will keep you warm below 50F. I wear it all the time here in the mountains of CO with the liner and ride at anything above 45F without a problem. Keep in mind CO is dryer so it feels warmer at 45F here than in Quebec. I've ridden in Quebec at that temp but usually have to resort to my gerbing heated liner if it's damp (isn't it alway - ha, ha). I can wear that under my Rukka jacket/liner combo. I use the Rukka Airway (w/liner) as a three season jacket (four season with gerbing heated liner).

Bob D: Marc,
Airway has an amazing lifetime quality construction. I like everything about it.
The airflow is excellent. Yesterday, when the temperature reached 82 degrees it was comfortable except when I was stopped in traffic. I don't use the destination layer until it's below 50.
My one challenge is with the fit. I'm 6'1, 195 (probably what would be called an "athletic" build). II ordered a 50 based on Revzilla's recommendation. I returned it twice for a 52 and then a 54. It's still a little snug through my chest and shoulders with the armor installed. The destination layer (which I don't use often due to our mild/dry weather) fits on my arms like a compression sleeves.
Hope this helps.

Steve P: Hi Marc- I can only speak for the Airway. It's best trait is that it flows really well. It's worst trait is that it flows no matter what. In cooler weather, down to 50F or so, I use the Goretex liner to wind block. If it's a longer ride I use a fleece jacket underneath, like you'd use in a hike, not moto specific. Into the low 40s and a heated vest does the trIck. Lower still and another jacket is the best choice. Either way, I love the Airway. -Steve Apr 13, 2015

larry d: Hi. The jacket comes with a liner that you can remove. Its a waterproof rubber-type liner. I put it in for rain and if its cool (I'm in Vancouver). I got it for a summer jacket, and its good for that. If I were in a hot climate, like Las Vegas in the summer, I might think about a mesh jacket, but for the cooler Canadian summers, this is fine. Well made Apr 14, 2015

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William S: On a very accurate digital scale: 215 - 210.1 = 4.9 pounds for size 56.

I have a 44" chest measurement and wear 35" sleeve dress shirt. The body of the jacket fits very well. The sleeves are the right length when I am reaching forward to the grips of my F6b. I live in the humid south. It is comfortable up to about 70 F in direct sunlight. On low humidity and cloudy days it is comfortable at higher temps. I am very pleased with the jacket.

A S: Thanks that with or without liners?
Damian Nov 24, 2013
William S: That is without the liner which weighs very little. Nov 25, 2013
Pierre Paul B: Unfortunately, I don't have access to my jacket as it is stored outside my home for the winter. Otherwise, I would've weighted it for you. What I can tell you though, it is not lite. The jacket itself with it's solid construction and the armour it contains, cannot be compared to a mesh jacket like a First Gear for example.
In conclusion, I'm very happy I bought it, even at the price it is!

Lina B: The jacket weighs about 4lbs. I have worn it everyday for about 4months with no signs of wear. I bought it as I ride in summer temps of 40+degree Celsius, 104+F. In that temp you need your skin covered or you burn! Jacket bearable at those temps. In cooler weather jacket is great to about 77degree without liner, never had liner in mine yet. Nov 15, 2013

Danny P asked: I'm thinking of getting this jacket, but was pondering upgrading the D3O upgrade. I do not have much information on what you get with D30 other than it is more flexible than RVP Air, but does not breath as well as RVP. BTW, I do not know the difference between CE Level 1 and Level 2.

What is the difference between the two?

Mikhail L: Hi Danny,
I'm very happy with the jacket and don't plan on upgrading to D30.
RVP Air is totally cool and flexible.
Here is the some info on levels of protection:

European Standard EN 1621-2:2003[2] defines two levels of performance for CE approved back protectors. The test apparatus and procedure is similar to that of EN 1621-1:1997,[1] but with a different impactor and anvil configuration. The impactor is a rounded triangular faced prism, of length 160 mm, base 50 mm, height 30.8 mm and radius 12.5 mm. The anvil is a radiused cylinder, with its axis orientated to the direction of impact, of height 190 mm, diameter 100 mm and rounded end radius 150 mm. When tested to the procedure defined in the standard, the two levels of performance are:
Level 1 protectors: The average peak force recorded below the anvil in the tests shall be below 18 kN, and no single value shall exceed 24 kN.
Level 2 protectors: The average peak force recorded below the anvil in the tests shall be below 9 kN, and no single value shall exceed 12 kN.[2]

Hope this helps...

Steve P: The D30 is more flexible, as you stated, but it gains further merit by the fact that it 'hardens' on impact-hence, a higher level of protection. This comes, again as you pointed out, at the loss of some air flow. To the differences between CE 1 and CE2, there is a concise wikipedia article on it that can be found by google searching "CE level 1 AND level 2." The top level answer is that the standard requires less force transference for the level 2 armor versus the level 1. Dec 17, 2013

Eric H: I got the D30 back protector, it is much thicker then and adds some weight to the jacket, but when on the bike I don't notice it at at all. Best Summer jacket I have owned. Dec 17, 2013

Danny P asked: I notice they video says the guy has a 42 inch chest, but according to Rukka, she should be wearing a 54 (41.7-42.9) and not a 50 (38.6-39.8). Am I suppose to go by what Rukka says or do 1 measurement below what I measured to be at? I have a chest of 43, Belly 40 and Sleeve 34. Dec 17, 2013

George L: Danny

I bought a size 52 hacker in this a word it fit well, a close fit but not snug. Collar and sleeve length were custom shirts are usually cut to a 34.5" sleeve. My actual measurements are 40" chest and 36" waist. In street cloths, I usually wear size 42 jackets that are cut with a slim fit and "longish" arms and 34" jeans. I'm 5'11" and 175 lbs. With the size 52 Rukka jacket, I could put a bit more weight without incurring a problem.

Let me know what else I can relate about Rukka fit.

Joseph M: Hi Danny, I'm a 44in chest, 34in waist - I'm supposed to be a 58 but ordered a 56 and found I have plenty of room. I had to cinch in the waist and arms for a snug fit. I wear a uniform under it and have no problems.
Your measurements should be a 56 but I'm not sure about your sleeve. I might stay with the Rukka size and if your not happy go up or down a size accordingly.
Hope this helps

A shopper asked: I was curious about the comfortable temp range for this jacket. Without the liner I assume it should go as warm as you can go because it replaces a mesh jacket.
But could you tell me the lowest temp that it stayed comfortable with the liner in?
I have a jacket from Rev'it that I can wear when it is cold. But I wanted something to cover temps going up from 50-60F.

Chrisbcg: I've ridden with the jacket at 60mph on cool 40 degree mornings and literally didn't feel a thing under the jacket with the liner in. I would say the jacket is capable of more than I'll ever test as it could probably keep your torso warm in 25-30 degree conditions. The jacket is also entirely water proof (again I've tested it with outstanding results) so it'll keep you dry and comfy even on rainy days. I live in upstate NY and regardless of weather, once the street sweepers have cleaned up the winter roads, I'm out there and with this jacket I'm comfortable, and protected. Buy it. Apr 29, 2013

Christopher N: I rode yesterday in 55 degrees with the liner was quite cold. I would say this is a 60-65 and up jacket. Without the liner, it's literally like wearing a tshirt. I think alot of it depends on the bike you ride and how much wind you are getting. This was on my Ducati, so i'm getting quit a bit of air. Didn't test it out on my BMW touring bike, but i'd imagine it's a bit warmer.

Dunno, I have no clue how other people are wearing it in cooler temps, i froze at 55 degrees with the liner in and a tshirt underneath.
