Rukka Apollo GORE-TEX Gloves 4.2 5 9 9
great gloves too roomy for my taste the fit great i bought 9, I'll will change them to 8, they feel kind of large July 20, 2014
great gloves Very happy with this purchase. Am a size 9 in Revit, hand circumference 8.4 inch hence bordering on size 10 but ordered a 9 and they fit great - a bit snug, but after breaking in they will be just perfect. Rode them in 10C and my hands got cold after an hour - they are definitely meant for 15C and above I'd think. Not had a chance to test waterproofness yet. As for protection I'd comfortably wear these at highway speeds, feel like they will protect well should the worst happen. Thanks Revzilla for the great reviews. April 21, 2014
Fantastic for wet weather... I have been an avid user of the BMW Pro Summer gloves for awhile now and wear a size 8-8.5. However, I ordered a pair of Rukka Apollo gloves when I could not find the BMW ones anymore. I wear a size 10 Rukka and find the fit to be very nice indeed. This pair of gloves feel a lot more solid than the BMW ones. The armour makes me feel a lot more protected and the leather is also more substantial. I do not feel any discomfort when riding as long as I am careful about how I tighten that wrist strap. There is a pressure point if I do over-tighten it but it feels perfectly fine if I do not over-tighten. I will recommend this glove for anyone needing wet weather protection. I have worn this for about 10 months now and am loving it. The torrential rain here comes down in sheets and my hands have remained dry (albeit a little cold sometimes). Highly recommended.

Slider Pad Too Large For fit, I wear a size nine in BMW gloves. My hand measures 8.25 to 8.5. Size 10 in Rukka gloves fit well as advised by Revzilla. Returned the glove because the slider pad on the palm of the hand is too large in my opinion. It interfered with a good grip on the handle bars. If not for that flaw, I would have kept the gloves because otherwise they are very nice gloves. March 7, 2014
Waterproof with classic style The Rukka Apollo is a classic-looking glove. I appreciate the protection provided by the composite knuckle armor, and I really like that the armor is hidden underneath the leather for a smooth, classic leather glove appearance. The Gore-Tex Xtra-Fit waterproof membrane is completely invisible to the touch; there's no movement of the liner inside the glove or crinkly feel. While I haven't tested the waterproofness, I trust the Gore-Tex to do it's job. Note that there is no thermal insulation in this glove; for me, they are good down to about 45 degrees with heated grips. Also, the gauntlet is meant to be worn underneath the cuff. If you just want a basic waterproof glove, there are cheaper options. But if you want a high-quality, classically-styled, Gore-Tex leather glove, this is a good choice. This glove pairs very well with my Armas jacket. November 18, 2013
Excellent 3-season Glove Got these gloves to replace my BMW gloves, which have been fading in the sun (I was on my 3rd pair - BMW replaced the first one, I just purchased a new pair after that one faded.) My BMW gloves were a size 9, and (after break-in) were a bit on the 'loose' side. The Apollo pair is also a size 9 and a bit on the snug side out of the box - not uncomfortable, but definitely much more snug than the BMWs. I am sure they'll loosen up a bit with wear, and should fit very well at that time. As for the top strap, yes it is a bit short, and come come out of its guide if not careful. By changing the way I put the gloves on, I manage to keep it threaded now, so that is not a problem for me. The hard protections are really nicely done. Hope I'll never need it, but good to have it if it ever became necessary. I definitely can recommend these gloves. (Riding K1600GT, about 15000-18000 miles/year average) August 11, 2013
Poor design Although the glove is very well made, the wrist strap is poorly designed and frustrating in use. Every time you take off the glove the strap need to be re threaded through the loop hole. It's just not well thought out. I have a Ruuka jacket and it's one of the best made and all around Best jackets I've ever owned. They need to think more about their gloves. August 7, 2013
Almost perfect Looked at many different gloves and watched multiple video reviews (very helpful) and decided to spend the money for a really high quaity pair. After all, it's something you use for years, day in day out. The Rukka Apollo gloves are very well made; with fine stitching, excellent protection and superb feel for the bars. The pre-curved fingers and goatskin leather combine for a really nice grip which above all was what I was looking for. I've found them to be warm to about 45 degrees but as yet have not had to test the Goretex liner. My winter gloves are Firstgear TPG's in a size large that fit just about right, though the finger length is a bit long. The Rukka gloves in size 10 are definitely slimmer and the finger length is a little shorter, which I like. If you are on the upper reaches of a large or thick fingered I would think the size 11 would be best. The opening at the base of the hand is smaller which makes them a bit harder to pull on or off though they have already softened up after about 800 miles of riding and will likely continue to give a bit. I expect that after a few more months these will fit perfectly. The one true design flaw is that the wrist strap is too short and would come out of the metal ring each time I pulled the gloves on. It's a real pain to have to thread the strap through each time, especially when you have to do the second one with a gloved hand. I managed to solve the problem with a little velcro on each pull tab that serves as a stop and keeps the strap from pulling through. Had I not solved this I would have had to send them back.

Larry C: Hi Juan Carlos. If you measured over 8.75" you should definitely order the size 11. My hand measures 8.75" and my size ten gloves are quite snug. It takes a bit of effort to get them on and off. It thought that since they are leather that the would stretch out over time but that doesn't seem to be the case, probably because off the direct attachment off the Gore-tex liner to the leather.
That said, the gloves are absolutely beautiful, with excellent feel for the grips. Very sharp appearance, nicely amored, well stitched. You'll be happy.

John G: Hi, I don't know the Icon gloves.

But I found the Apollo gloves a bit smaller/biger then other rukka gloves.
I ware the rukka vauhti in a 11 = perfect fit.
The Apollo in 11 = ok, just a bit smaller.
rukka HIM in a 11 = loose fit

hope this helps
if you can, order both of them and keep the one that fits

Patrick C: I have a very large hands and usually wear a size extra large. I used the glove size chart and it told me to order a large which I did. They were too small and I had to send em back for an extra large. My experiences is that the sizing chart runs small and these are very tight fitting gloves. I would recommend going to the larger size. Good luck Apr 3, 2014

A. David B: My hand measurement indicated that I needed a size 10 according to Rukka's chart. I ordered the 10 and it fits pretty darned good. If anything, they're a tad small. So the short answer is, if you've measured your hand and the Rukka chart suggests a size 11, I'd order that size. Apr 3, 2014

Joseph B: They do fit small, so if you would measure a 10 get an 11. If time isn't an issue, remember Revzilla has an awesome return policy. I ordered a size 10 but discovered they were too small, paid for the shipping and got them back in less than a week. Excellent pair of gloves. Apr 5, 2014
