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.


  • 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


  • 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

Rukka Armas Jacket 4.6 5 22 22
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! June 14, 2015
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.... :) February 13, 2015
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. January 29, 2015
Overall A Great Product Pros: Best combine of style and protection (I rode with this product in 20 F and feels nothing) Pockets are extremely useful and well designed Cons: 899 is still too much for a jacket zipper can be very annoying sometime January 17, 2015
Overall a Great Jacket Overall a great jacket however there are a few things: One of the color coded loops intended to secure the thermal liner to buttons in the sleeve of the jacket pulled out of it's stitching without much force. I decided not to use them anymore and just let the sleeves float. A zipper (as on the cuffs of the pants) would be better quality. This failure, while minimal, is annoying given the premium pricing of the jacket. Additionally, according to the Revzilla's video synopsis of the jacket's features, says the two front pockets with the "zipper cozies" are waterproof. NOT. Not even water resistant to any degree. The side pockets are said to be water resistant and this was true. They were more water resistant than the above mentioned "waterproof" ones. Despite these issues, the inner pockets as well as the jacket itself remain dry in even the harshest conditions. The only water leakage was through the collar, whose plastic backing is not flexible enough to fasten tightly or comfortably against the neck without puckering. Rukka: If you're going to use wet suit material around the neck -- go all the way and make it close like a wet suit. The zipper collar attachment helps but does not cure the problem. Non of these issues make me regret the purchase, although it would be nice if Rukka made some changes to future designs. December 29, 2014
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. December 24, 2014
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. November 24, 2014
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. June 29, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
john j: 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. :) Feb 16, 2015
Dean d: 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. May 1, 2014
Chris A: Warm and dry. Excellent jacket. Apr 2, 2014
Lacy B: Because I felt it was the very best protection around and I was right. On 15 March I went down on the Florida Turnpike going over 60 MPH and emerge with a single scratch. This jacket protected me. Mar 25, 2014
Richard M: I have two other jackets I use for summer and fall weather. I'm taking a trip in February this year, FROM MINNESOtA" I need the best gear I can get and I'm hoping this fits the bill. I've read a lot of forums about this Jacket and I feel that It'll preform well. Fingers crossed.... Jan 25, 2014

JJ P: 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! Oct 21, 2014

John K: I found it acceptably warm. Have matching pants as well. The quality of protection and dryness in rain outweighs that. I only wear a lightweight shirt and thigh length underwear (both Under Armor type products) beneath the Rukka. Don't think it would be comfortable in desert conditions though. Oct 21, 2014

Florian N: Yes, with the liners removed it's ok. Heavily depends on what kind of summer you're talking about. Do you mean a 100 degree North Carolina summer with 95% humidity or a mild 85 degree summer? In the former you'll always be miserable ;) Oct 21, 2014

MATTHEW W: Absolutely not. With the layer out and vents open, it's too warm over about 75 degrees. Now in the winter and fall, it is amazing. But no, this is definitely not good for the summer. Oct 21, 2014

A S asked: 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!

Al L: 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 Apr 29, 2014

Martin B: Hello All,

I had the Rukka Armas since March 2013 and I do not know about the Armaxion. I did ride with the Armas in the 30 degree Celsius (86F) in Montreal, Canada and it was ok. If you’re stuck in traffic it will get hot, but when you are cruising or on the highway the vent on the front of the shoulder will provide ventilation. One thing you should not forget to get the best performance from the Gore-Tex shell you should also wear a good base layer.

I am very satisfied with this coat.

Jordan D: Hi,

I own the Rukka Armas (not the Armaxion), but maybe I can help out a little. First, the Armas isn't indestructible, just well built. I had a low speed spill (20 mph), and the Armas protected me as far as road rash goes. I was impressed. But the jacket got torn open a little. Also, the padding (armor) isn't custom or even that sophisticated, no matter what they say.

It's a good product but really uncomfortable above 75 degrees. Not something for summer. You will probably have it unzipped which defeats the purpose somewhat.

I'm not trying dissuade you from buying it but if you are looking to spend this kind of money you may want to check out Motoport USA. You can even call and talk to the owner. This stuff is as expensive as Armas but custom made, and the armor is no joke. At least I say that without having wrecked with it on.

I hope that helps.

christopher s: Buy the Armas and don't look back

Now to qualify that:

I've owned lots of expensive gear. BMW, Arai, Dainese, etcetera. I buy a new motorcycle almost every year.

The rukka is fantastic. Nothing is good above 85 degrees, but I find the Armas to be better than expected for venting, as long as you are not sitting in traffic. Removing the linings helps open up the jacket. It won't be as cool as a mesh jacket, but you get a whole lot more than what a mesh jacket is capable of, including rain protection. Abrasion resistance. Oh, and it does look nice.

In the end, I think the Armas is the best piece of three season protection you can find. It ought to be complemented with dedicated hottest weather riding gear, (mesh jacket and armored bluejeans.)but that's about it.

Florian N: The Rukka Armas is definitely suited for colder weather. I haven't tested it out in scorching NC summers yet. Although I'm a big Dainese fan, I would pick the Rukka. Dainese cuts slimmer and doesn't feel as sturdy. I'm not worried about not having D3O armor. Think about it. If you have a serious accident there's not much difference. Only on low speed drops might this be different, and then do you really need it? I think not.

If you're on the fence pick the Rukka. You won't be disappointed. Make sure you get the correct size.

John S: Failed to see the question about ventilation . Forget the Armas...it's a winter fall spring jacket ONLY. ITS great in cool weather but absolutely not for summer. I can't speak for the other brands. No jacket is all seasons....3 seasons with some overlap is the best you'll get. Consider the newer Airpower version if using in summer. Apr 29, 2014

CHARLES H: 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.

Jason B: Take a look at the sizing chart to find your size. I believe that the size chart is in Euro sizing, since Rukka is German. The Rukka Armas runs 1-2 sizes big. So try one size smaller than what the chart says, and if that is too big then exchange it for 2 sizes smaller than what the chart says.
For example, the chart said I would be a size 54. Knowing that Rukka runs large, I ordered a size 50 and it fits great.
Hope that helps.

Cyrus S: All Rukka jackets are European sizes so if you are 50 eu in other jackets, you are the same in Rukka. I have 42 inch =105 cm chest, based on Rukka chart I should wear a 52, but 50 fits perfectly. Mar 4, 2015

A shopper asked: 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?

Timothy V: 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.

Michael C: I tried two different Armas jackets on and neither fit me well. I'm a little over 6'1", 175lb w/ a 41.5" chest and have what most consider an "athletic build". The jacket that wasn't way too baggy in the chest was way too tight in the shoulders and arms, the jacket that fit my shoulders/arms reasonably well felt huge in the torso area. ...so I didn't feel like I could get a proper fit out of this jacket, bummer cuz I really like how it was made and the straight-forward styling.

Good luck,

Andrew J: Hello Michael,

What were the two sizes you tried?


Andrew Feb 8, 2015
Michael C: I THINK it was the 50 and 52 but could have been the 52 and 54. The feeling I got from the sizing was that it was less European and more American fitting. I generally have trouble fitting jackets and suits, ~42" chest and 32" waist. Really nice jacket tho. My guess is that you'll need to size for your shoulders in this jacket rather than your chest so I probably wouldn't size down. Revzilla was great w/ the exchange and return stuff so worst case you'll be out return shipping costs.

Good luck, curious to hear how it works out.
mtc Feb 8, 2015
sean e: sizing is tricky. I'm 5'10" 175 42" chest, athletic build and the 50 was a little big on me. Their return policy is great, order both sizes and get their pre-paid return label on the one that doesn't fit. Cost you an extra couple of $, but you'll get the size you need Feb 3, 2015

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?

CHARLES H: 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.

My Aramas size 60 fits perfectly, and I am an athletic 48 long w/ 44 reach. Best jacket ever.

Good luck!

John M: 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. Nov 2, 2014

christopher s: Just my experience, owning two different rukka jacket and pant combinations, the sizing information on the website is perfect. If you take your measurements properly, then you'll have no trouble finding a size that fits. Nov 2, 2014

Douglas H asked: 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! Feb 6, 2014

Michael T: 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 Feb 10, 2014

John K: I don't know about compatibility. I have the Armas jacket in 56 and am awaiting the pants in 54. I can only assume that within the same item line that they are mix and match as to sizing. Feb 7, 2014

Douglas H: Hopefully so. I asked because I'm told Rev'It leather gear has unequal length zippers among the different sizes. That's for the full-length zips; the short connecting zips are all the same I believe. Feb 7, 2014

JJ P: This jacket has level 1 protection. I added D-30 level 2, all Rukka except a Klim back protector. It is very comfortable. Sep 19, 2013

John S: Sorry I am unsure of your question. I will say that no other jacket in my closet..(I have several) make me feel more protected that the Armas. I have BMW Rallye 3 jacket and trousers..while top notch...I'd give the nod to Rukka for being best...IMHO you simple can't buy better than the Armas...it's a tad warm...but that's expected..the Air Vision is their summer jacket ...while good..it pales in comparison. The Armas will zipp rigidly to any Rukka Trouser. Most textiles are frowned upon for track use...not so with the Armas.make sure it fits right..(snug) & go! Sep 19, 2013

Trapperj: 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" Mar 4, 2013

RevZilla: The Rukka Armas Jacket is most definitely hi-viz. We suggest not looking directly at it without protective eye wear. Nov 30, 2012

Trapperj: I have several older Rukka jackets and a new Armas. They seem to be close in their sizing. If I were buying I'd listen to Revzillas advice..take your measurements as suggested and hit the buy button. You won't be sorry! Feb 25, 2013
