Rukka Armas Jacket

The Rukka Armas jacket is intended to meet the most extreme needs of today's hardcore motorcycle enthusiasts. A true 4-season tank, the Armas is the ultimate in protection and function for serious riders.

Constructed throughout with Gore-Tex Pro Shell and Gore Lockout 2.0 zippers, in addition to a Gore-Tex collar and double Gore-Tex cuffs, the Armas jacket is designed to keep you 100% dry no matter the conditions. On the inside of the jacket, a robust liner keeps your temperature regulated with Outlast technology. Outlast has the ability to cool you as it absorbs your body heat as well as to warm you as it returns that stored energy back to you in colder temperatures.

The Rukka Armas is packed full of functional details, like the reflective logos for visibility, generous internal and external storage pockets, and well-placed fitment adjustors. Keeping in line with the Rukka Defense and Comfort motto, the most integral piece to the Armas jacket is the Rukka RCP Air protectors in the shoulders, elbows and back, which allow for unimpeded airflow to keep you safe and comfortable at the same time.

Materials:

  • Gore-Tex Pro Shell 3-layer laminate with Armacor technology
  • Armacor is a combination of high-tech fibers - aramid (Kevlar) and Cordura
  • Pro Shell with Armacor is extremely tear and abrasion resistant, yet lighter weight and is water and windproof
  • Waterproof Gore Lockout main closure
  • Gore Lockout closure is tooth-free and ensures a constant waterproof seal
  • Tear and abrasion resistant GTX Super Fabric reinforcements
  • Cuffs and detachable collar made of elastic 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric

Protection:

  • RVP Air Back Pad included
  • Includes 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:

  • Detachable thermal jacket with Outlast thermal lining (60g)
  • Outlast microcapsules absorb excess heat which is stored and released as needed
  • Collar with VELCRO® brand closure
  • Soft neoprene in collar
  • Elastic stretch panels on sides of the jacket
  • Ventilation openings with zippers in front on both shoulders
  • Width adjustment on upper and lower arm
  • Jacket and trousers have connecting zippers
  • Waist closure with double tightening
  • Jacket has seven pockets; three inside (waterproof and one of which includes an integrated mobile phone holder) and four outside pockets
  • The Rukka warranty is valid for 5 (five) years from the date of purchase against faults in material or workmanship.

Way too Expensive
I wanted to leave a quick review with a few key call-outs after having just received this jacket. Let me qualify my comments by saying I have not ridden in it as I am not sure if I am going to keep it yet but here are my initial thoughts.

Good
1. Very secure feeling with plenty of adjustments to cinch the jacket down.
2. Not too bulky due to having a relatively thin but efficient outlast thermal liner.
3. Short cut, waist length which will suit a wide range of riding styles.
4. Great gaiter / cuff system which allows modest gauntlet gloves to sit under the cuff, thus sealing out the elements.
5. Comfortable collar and neck gaiter.
6. Looks pretty gnarly for a textile jacket.

Bad
1. Way, way too expensive for what you are getting. This should be an $800-$900 jacket (with $500-$600 matching pants).
2. The thing shouts "Scandanavian!" and this is mentioned a lot in Anthony's excellent video but, to be clear, this jacket clearly states "Made in China" on it.
3. The armor is all basic, level 1. You have to shell out more cash to get the good d3o stuff (after having spent $1300 plus already).
4. A few exposed areas of stitching on the shoulder of this particular jacket have shoddy stitching.
5. Sizing is a bit off. I am usually a textbook EU50 but went down to a 48 in this - I feel it is still just slightly baggy (I'm 5'11", 165 pounds, 40" chest).

At a slightly lower price (say, sub $1k) most of the shortcomings could be overlooked but I expect one of the most expensive jackets on the market to be perfectly constructed, be fitted with the level 2 armor out of the box and to be made in or near the country the brand and marketing suggest. I would really love to keep it but when I look at the price then think about how much I need to spend to get the matching pants and see $2200 blown on a single textile, CE level 1 suit all I can think about is how much Dainese, Revit or Alpinestars gear, etc I could buy. The only thing I can't complain about is Revzilla's excellent service (as always).

Chokes me to send it back
After a lot of research and trying on jackets that can be obtained locally (Klim, RevIt BMW) I decided to order what looked to be the very best jacket on the market. It is certainly very well made and provides exceptional protection from the elements as well as abrasion.

I had 3 criteria for my jacket; hi viz, protection, and comfort.

I'm 6'2" and 195lbs with a 44" chest and I ordered a size 54 which was the right sleeve length and chest size.

After trying the jacket on I found the that the collar was very uncomfortable. The fixed neoprene collar roll is too high (up to my ears) and the front part of the collar where the zipper is housed is bulky, and pressed on the front part of my neck. Imagine wearing a shirt and tie with neck size one too small. It restricted me turing my head, but he biggest problem was that I felt like I was gagging....I figured it would get worse with wind pressure on it and could not see wearing it for extended periods. So sadly I am returning it and will look for something more comfortable.

The other grip I have is the armour that comes with it - I upgraded to D30 for elbows and shoulders and a Forcefield CE2 Back Protector. The D30 makes the jacket more comfortable. The Forcefield adds a fair amount of weight which contributed to the collar issue.

BTW the guys at Revzilla were great about returning the jacket and pants (I ordered well over $2k) I would not hesitate to order from them again because if somethings not right they are great about you returning it if it's not right.

Only Good for Extreme Winter Driving on Touring Bike
I've had the Rukka Armas jacket for about 6 weeks. I purchased it for winter riding. IMO this jacket is excellent for cold weather - touring type riding, but not good for much else. First, the positives:

- It's warm. I've driven in 30 degrees F for 2+ hours on the highway at 70 mph and not been even slightly cold. It's excellent at keeping you warm, but not overheated. The Outlast lining seems to do exactly what it promises.
- Appears to be watertight. I don't ride in the rain if I can help it, and haven't tried it with this jacket, but the seams, shell, zippers,etc seem over-engineered to keep water out
- It's very high quality. The fabrics, stitching, zippers (with one exception see below) etc. appear to be very high quality. Rare these days to see that in most garments. Of course, at this price point, you would expect that.
- Appears to add to safety. The armor placement, abrasion resistant panels, etc are excellent.
- It looks cool. Very high tech look.
- Works great with Rukka pants. It zippers to the pants for a great cold weather riding suit.

Negatives:
- The Gore Lockout main zipper is TERRIBLE. This is the primary and OVERWHELMING weakness of the jacket. Rukka should eliminate this zipper and go with something else. It is basically a super thick version of the zip seam on a zip-lock bag. It's way too difficult to zip, VERY FREQUENTLY opens up unexpectedly, and I am worried it will not last more than a couple of seasons. Rukka provides a silicone stick to help lubricate the zipper and make it work better, and it does help, but it doesn't do much. On several instances, the zipper has opened up mid way in the center of my chest while riding (stays fastened at the top and bottom). At that point the only thing you can do is pull over, get off the bike, and re-zip it (which will take at least 5 minutes to get right). I cannot emphasize enough how ridiculous this zipper is to operate.
- This jacket is VERY heavy and VERY stiff. I have several other motorcycle jackets, and none of them are even close to how heavy this thing is. I've replaced the standard armor with D30, but this only helped a bit. If you are driving a touring bike in an upright position, it's fine/doesn't impact you as much, but if you are on any kind of bike with a forward position e.g. sport bike, sport touring, cafe, etc. the jacket severely restricts your motion and you will feel it impacting your riding.
- Odd fit - I bought the size 54. I wear about a 44 size suit, and generally am a L if not a numbered size. The torso and shoulders fit fine, but the sleeves are ridiculously narrow... you would need pencil thin arms to fit comfortably. Weird.

If it had a regular zipper, I'd rate it a 4 star. If it had a regular zipper, was not heavy/overweight, and had better fit and flexibility, it would be a 5 star without question.

Expensive but Awesome
I've had this jacket a full year and have ridden in temperatures down to 5 degrees F at highway speed and I was able to accomplish everything I wanted to during the past winter. I'm an everyday rider/commuter and this was my only jacket during the winter in Washington, DC. From 50F to 20F this jacket performs extremely well and chances are you will not face much discomfort when wearing it. When it drops into the teens and lower, yes, you will get chilly over time and may think about adding some heated gear, or just stop to warm up (I don't own any heated gear). If it's above 40F I will take out the liner and be fine with a long-sleeve shirt. If it's above 60 I usually switch to a cooler jacket.

This thing is 100% water and wind proof and will simply amaze you when you take it off and realize how dry you are after riding in a downpour. One thing I will say is I sometimes wish it was a 3/4 length as the back being waste length can creep up on you if you have a more forward riding position. I notice this when the temps start to dip, so I am not sure if this would cause an issue for the sportier riders. If you are sitting upright I think it will be fine but in the extreme cold just remember to tuck in your undershirt so you don't get cold air on your back.

I agree with others that Rukka could make this cheaper but I believe in investing in safety and comfort and that's exactly what you are doing with this jacket. Just don't tell your friends/coworkers how much you spent or they will likely call you crazy (though they may have just dropped 60 grand on a luxury car). Overall I highly recommend this product and I hope that you get as much use out of it as I have mine.

Closeout was a big opportunity
I thought it was expensive so i took the opportunity with the closeout. Now that I have it I know I would have paid the full price. Way better than my old BMW rallye.
Have some doubts about the Goretex Lockout zipper but I hope it works.
I cold weather it's perfect. Drove 50 miles at 0ºC (32 F) and 100mph and felt no cold at all (the BMW K1600 heated seat and grips also help. I was more surprised one day that got hotter but felt perfect. It seams outlast works very well indeed!

Things you need to know if considering this gear.
I am 6'3" and weigh 175 pounds. This jacket has good length for long arms and tall torso. There is more room through the torso than thin guys need but this isn't unusual. The sleeve cuff design prevents drafts while allowing the sleeve to be over your gloves. Overall, I have felt no drafts around the neck, waist or sleeves. The zipper design makes the front a little stiff under the chin but I'm hoping this will soften up with wear. The one negative I've found, after only 500 miles of wear, is the shoulder vent zippers. They move air well at speeds below 60 but feel like you're wearing a drag chute, rather than a jacket, at freeway speeds as the jacket balloons out around you.

Comfortable and completely weatherproof
The Armas is the ideal cool-to-cold weather jacket. It's really comfortable, the Outlast liner provides a surprising amount of warmth and temperature flexibility, and the shell is completely weatherproof. The build quality of the jacket is really good, and the materials are top-shelf. I'm sure that the abrasion protection is adequate, though I hope never to test that aspect.

I use the Armas jacket with the Argonaut pants and the Apollo or R-Star 2-in-1 gloves.

Winter Can't Touch Me
My Armas jacket and pants have made it so I can keep riding year round with complete confidence. I especially like the Outlast liners and the Outlast base layer I wear with this. It really means something when you can wear something on and off the bike and remain temperature neutral. I hate being hot just as much as I hate being cold, but now that's no longer a worry for me.

I just finished a 54 mile commute home last Friday evening in the rain, sleet, and snow, and I was warm and dry the whole time. While both my Armas gear and my bike looked like they had been to h*ll and back, I was completely untouched by what winter had thrown at me. And cleanup was a snap.

Plenty warm enough for this Canuck
Received my Armas jacket and pants this week, today was the real test of its worth for me as I rode into Port Dover for PD13 on Feb 13 2015. I left for work at 5am and temps were -22°C when I left for PD13 temps were a high of -14°C in total today's ride was approx 200kms all at well below 0 temps. I was only wearing a base layer, a windbreak mid layer upper and a thermal vest. Plenty warm enough for me, but gloves on the other hand I still need to find.... :)

Best gear I have owned...
Having spent way too much money on high-end riding gear in the past, I decided to buy the Armas and see what I thought.

This is absolutely the best (comfortable, functional, confidence-inspiring) gear I own. Bought the pants and gloves, too. The suit is extremely well engineered. Extremely comfortable. Warm to 38F (It has not been cold here outside Boston, yet) with just a tee shirt and briefs on underneath. And comfortable easily up to 75F with the lining out and the vent open.

I've owned lots of other BMW and top maker gear--from blue jeans to leather suits--and this stuff far exceeded my expectations.

Only gripe is that the zipper on the jacket cuffs is a little awkward to unzip with gloves on, so I pull the gloves off first, then need to grip the cuffs with fingertips to hold the sleeve while unzipping the cuff with the opposite hand.

It doesn't look like a 'Power Ranger' suit
Lars B A on Jul 2, 2016
Rukka to my mind makes the best most solid motorcycle gear in the world. I have found none that match it. the price is wonky for sure but given how much I ride and in all weather once I saved up it was a no brainer. Goretex laminate, gore lock out all the bells and whistles - only the Revit new gear comes close.

Simply put - this is a second. First one has 5 years and 60k km on it in all weather. Its great. Still going strong. I like the Gore Lockout closure over double zippers. Rukka aren't making the Yellow high viz anymore. Writing is on the wall, so I'm picking up a spare. Between the two, I guess I'll have enough jacket to ride until retirement. :)

Is this a comfortable jacket in the summer?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a very comfortable jacket, but not on the hotter days. Wearing only the shell, liner out, it does not move enough air to make it a true 4 season jacket. In all other respects, it is wonderful. I bought the D30 armor (with a Klim version for the spine, cutdown slightly), and one does not feel the armor. I liked it well enough that I splurged the following year on the new Rukka summer jacket with the weatherproof lining. I transfer the D30 as needed. It is an investment, but well worth it for me. Rukka is in a class of its own. Good luck!
Hi there,

I am on the fence between this coat, the new Armaxion and the Dainese Stradon.

It seems that for the money, maybe the Armaxion is the better deal since it comes with D30 armor. I love the Dainese Stradon for it's styling but am skeptical of Dainese build quality and longevity of their stitching. (am I out of line on that?) I know Rukka is pretty much indestructible. And ultimately, the hi-viz Armas would be my first choice, but without the D30, it seems like it's price is a bit out of whack with their other products (like the D30 packing Armaxis and Cosmic).

I guess I am looking for something that helps me settle on either the Armas or Stradon since the Armaxion styling isn't quite as inspired to me.

How about ventilation? Which of these coats does the best in summer weather?

Thanks very much!
A S on Apr 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in Los Angeles and have owned an Armas for several seasons now. As far as the Armas goes it is definitely a Fall, Winter, Spring jacket and reins supreme in those climates ..I would use it anytime EXCEPT summer. I've been caught in warm weather before and even with the outlast liner out its still pretty warm. As for the RVP Air" protection it works very well, I've tested it myself. The plus side is that it is much lighter that the D30. I just received my Airman jacket from Revzilla yesterday and I couldn't believe how heavy it was with the D30 compared to my Armas with the RVP Air" protection .. after using the Airman few times I could see myself swapping out the D30 for the RVP Air" protection
?I ham a size 50eu what size ham I in rukka
A shopper on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Measure your chest while wearing what ever layers you would normally wear under this jacket. Subtract 1 1/2" to 2" from from your chest measurement and look that smaller measurement up on the Rukka size chart. That is going to give you a good place to start.
I have a 41 !/2" chest and I ended up with a size 52 which is to large for me but he size 50 was to small when I used the Rukka D30 armor. The size 50 was tight but an ok fit with the standard armor.
Hello,

My question is on fit. I am just over 6ft with a 43.5 inch chest 205lbs with large shoulders. I am considering ordering this jacket in the size 52. I noticed on the video they recommend sizing down. The person in the demo was 195lbs with a 41.5 inch chest in the size 50. Am i right to go with the 52?

Thanks,

Andrew J
A shopper on Jan 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not going to make a sizing suggestion, but I will relay my personal experience.

First, my body sizing.
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 225lbs
Chest: 47/54 (torso/around shoulders)
Shoulders: 23" accross or 12.5" from C7 - Acromion.
Arm length: 23" from Acromion to ulnar head.

I purchased my Armas (in the winter of 2013) in a size 54, and it fits perfectly. I wear it as a 3+ season jacket, and have logged ~18,000 miles in it.

This is a spectacular 3 season jacket. It's got a few idiosyncrasies (nothing even closely resembling a deal breaker) but as an all around riding jacket, I wouldn't trade it for anything I've ever tried on.

I've heard others question the Lockout main front "zipper". I've had no negative experience with it at all. Simply know it works most smoothly with a light application of silicone. The applicator that comes with the garment works great.

~TJ
I am wondering about fit. I watched the video and the size demo was on a person who was 195lbs with a 41.5 inch chest and that was a size 50. I am at 205 lbs with a 43.5 inch chest with large shoulders and I am considering size 52. I have read the reviews and I understand to size down for the fit. Does it sound like I am on the right track before placing the order?

Thanks,

Andrew

BEST ANSWER: With your large shoulders I think the 54 would be a better fit. The 52 will probably be race suit tight on your shoulders.
My rule of thumb for Rukka Armas jacket sizing: Measure you chest wearing what ever layers you plan on wearing under the jacket. Subtract 1 1/2" from that measurement and look it up on the Rukka size chart. That will give you a good size to start with.
If you are upgrading to the Rukka D30 armor allow for the thicker armor.
So it seems this jacket runs larger vs. the Rukka sizing chart, what about compared to other European brands? Did owners of this jacket find they were the same size in this jacket?

BEST ANSWER: Rukka sizing chart was spot on for me in 48L. I called Revzilla support and they agreed with the chart over a year ago. Best jacket I've ever owned.
Hi i m looking to buy this jacket and pants but I'm not sure what size should i order I normally would wear a klim or olympia jacket size large and pants size 36 what size should i choose ?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Juan; I bought this jacket in a size 50. I'm 5' 11" and 185# with long arms. The fit is right on. This coat has a break-in time, it's stiff at first, but loosens as time passes. I did not buy the pants, big mistake, now they are out of stock for now. The other mistake was not to buy Rukka in the beginning, too expensive. Well I have a closet full of other riding gear that did not work. Well i would ave been money ahead to by Rukka in the beginning, Rukka lives up to the hyp.
What is Rukka's pants/jacket connection zipper compatibility? Specifically, will the Armas jacket zip to Cosmic pants? If so, does the sizing have to match, i.e. 50 jacket to 50 pants? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: Hi Douglas, I'm really sorry but I can't answer your question with any sort of accuracy because I am quite honestly not sure as I only have the jacket. It is one heck of a jacket I'll tell you that. I live in California and to tell you the truth it's a little too warm here for this jacket I might sell mine but it's a 48 (only worn it two or three times. The gore tex material is incredible though, the most awesome jacket I've ever seen however I should have gotten the air because the armas is more for cold climate and wet, you could jump into a swimming pool and you probably wouldn't get wet with this thing, great jacket and looks good. My guess, would be it does zip into the pants though but you'd want to make sure because this stuff isn't cheap as I'm sure you are well aware. Have a good one! sorry I could not help more.....mike
Does this jacket meet CE EN-13595 series Level 1 or 2 standard - what other jackets in your line up meet this standard?

BEST ANSWER: This jacket has level 1 protection. I added D-30 level 2, all Rukka except a Klim back protector. It is very comfortable.
It doesn't look like real hi-viz in the photos...

BEST ANSWER: It may not look like it in the photos. Maybe no flash was used. When lights hit the Rukka at night it will light up. The high viz is so bright it seems to have its own power supply! It does not...just highly reflective. 3m knows how to "shine"
