Lifetime Investment & Total Protection
Just got my Rukka Cosmic Jacket- only worn it a couple times, so first impressions only for now.
Fit & finish: fits like a glove, feels great, tho it's a heavy jacket. Probably will take a while to break in but when it does, it'll be even better. Stiff and bulky out of the box. Kinda have to riggle my way into it- the sleeve liners are a tight fit around the wrist- I guess to keep the elements out. I expect this to loosen somewhat over time? Details are excellent & well conceived. The neck gaiter works really well in cooler weather, and zips off easily for warmer temps. This jacket does NOT have the GTX brand "closures", it has zippers, so it remains to be seen how well storm flaps etc work. Probably will be fine- as all Rukka's past gear has always had zippers. There are some reflective details here, and the pockets are all easily accessible. Everything appears really well thought out.
Outlast liner: feels good, worn in temps in low 50s/high 40s (F) with only a T-shirt and light weight long sleeve, I was completely warm within. The Outlast liner only comes to above the waist tho- doesn't come down the full length of the jacket. the liner is claimed to be OK for use up to high 70s/ low 80s (F) so we'll see how it goes, liner easily zips out for warmer weather.
Rain protection: My EU & UK friends who wear Rukka swear by it- I've heard the GTX properties last forever or nearly so- much better than some other brands' gear- no need to re-treat the jacket to keep it water proof. However, I'm trying to sort GTX gloves- not certain if short-cuff gloves for under the outer shell sleeves, or longer gauntlet type gloves for over the sleeves are gonna be better in terms of rain protection...
Overall impressions: First rate gear well worth the money. I see this as a long term investment in safety and comfort. The Cosmic feels good and fits well in every way. In the wind, it doesn't even budge- you don't feel anything. At all. It's like a suit of armor- which, I guess that's the point.
Bottom line: I'm gearing up to all GoreTex stuff to replace all the bits and bobs - rain gear, over mitts, extra cold weather neck wear etc. The idea being I get better protection from less stuff; no need to stop somewhere on a journey to change gear up in case of inclement weather or temp swings.
The Cosmic Jacket is the 1st piece of my new gear set. I expect it'll last me a lifetime. It's like buying any other "tool"- you can spend the $$$ for ONE really good one, or settle for cheaper junk you'll replace again and again.
Rukka = 1 & done.
