Needed a warm weather jacket to go with my Airvision pants. I would have gone with the Air Rock but they didn't have my size.

Rukka reputation, user reviews, extreme protection and summer air-flow comfort
Christian A on Jan 20, 2017
I needed a new summer jacket and after researching many, many others, I went with this one. I must say that my decision was mainly based on the excellent reviews from Revzilla

Good quality ARMOURED summer jacket.
Viatcheslav M on Apr 5, 2016
High quality, great looking, light jacket.
Mark C on Feb 22, 2016
I wanted some better protection than my mesh jacket, and some upgraded armor from my old armor in my summer jacket. I was thinking of going with the Klim mesh jacket, but found this jacket and really liked it. So we'll see how it goes.
Georry on Feb 6, 2016
It looks awesome and bomb-proof.
Emmett H on Nov 30, 2015
Good reviews of Rukka.
Scott O on Nov 24, 2015
Want to try a Rukka jacket and really liked the look of this AirRider v. the mesh jackets I am used to seeing.
David O on Jun 14, 2015
The best combination of features. Cool in the summer while retaining a high level of protection.
Tony W on Jun 11, 2015
First and foremost I was looking for a summer jacket and was having a hard time finding a mesh jacket to fit the bill. After reading some reviews and an extensive search I decided on the Rukka AiRider. I hope it is everything I've read about it and more. I really like the style and protective function of this jacket. I think it looks great too. I hope I'm not let down especially given the price, I'll let you know...
John W on Jun 4, 2015
Looked like very high quality gear for summer SoCal riding..
James B on Jun 2, 2015
summer hot weather and 2015 top pick
joseph m on May 28, 2015
Looks great as my bike is black and red. Has great protection while still being a high flow summer jacket.
Ryan N on Apr 27, 2015
serious protection, slim fit, summertime jacket, looks good
Kyle G on Feb 1, 2015
My husband has had an earlier version of this jacket for about 20 years. Unfortunately, its time to get a new one since we have to manually adjust the shoulder armor every time he puts it on. He's tried on several other jackets but none compare to this one. It will be an extremely Merry Christmas for him.
Bonita W on Dec 3, 2014
I wanted to be protected but not die of heat exhausting. Looks great and has excellent air flow. also stronger material then mesh or textile.
Nicholas M on Nov 25, 2014
Replacement for worn and gamey Vanson Ventmax 3, based on strength of reviews. Returned - not enough airflow for Hawaii summer.
James A N on Sep 27, 2014
Lightweight airflow.
petehemlock on Sep 23, 2014
Living in California, I wanted a good jacket with lots of airflow due to the heat. The jacket is lite when you wear it and it flows a lot of air. Plan to use this year round with a thin liner for when it gets cooler from another jacket.
Symon B on Sep 17, 2014
I live on okinawa where it get's extremely hot and humid so I bought this jacket solely based on the fact that it's made for summer temperatures. I also loved the safety features that it has with the pads in the elbows and the reflective logos. Plus you have to admit, it's a pretty slick looking jacket.
Constantine M on Aug 4, 2014
Very high tech safety equipment with good looks.
John R on Jun 16, 2014
Reputation for quality, good design, upscale armor, water resistance, full airflow with greater abrasion resistance than mesh (probably). Also, because I'm not sure whether I'll choose the Klim Overland or the AirRider so I'm taking advantage of RevZilla's consumer friendly policies. Thanks for that.
Adam S on Jun 3, 2014
This company makes the most innovative and protective gear you can find. All of my scandinavian friends wear this gear.
Robert W on May 19, 2014
rukka jackets look great on your revzilla models. the rukka air rider looks like a motorcycle jacket and not a pheasant hunting parka.

I need a jacket for hot temperature. I'll try this one.
Miguel S on Jan 25, 2017
Hi, I'm looking to buy the Rukka AiRider or maybe an Airman jacket and wondering on sizing. I have a Rukka Cosmic in 54, the size is good. With the liner in a fraction small, without the liner a fraction large.How does the AiRider size compared with the Cosmic? 54 would be good? Thanks, David.
A shopper on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought an AirRider and got the same size as my Rukka Steel (older 2008 model). The model is now discontinued so I can't really compared to the Cosmic but mine is a short jacket. The AirRider is not stiff at all (don't hold very well on an hanger) and have no belt adjustment that make my Steel jacket very well fit. It's a loose fit for me but with the few adjustments at the minimum I'm ok with it. I'm a slim athletic built, hope this help. I've only worn it for a week by now and I think it's a very nice jacket for warm weather.
The description says that the back protection is sold separately, but in the video Anthony says it comes standard. Which is it??
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As much as I respect Anthony, but I believe that this time he got it wrong. The bracket doesn't come with the back protection. You have to buy it separately. That said, by far, it is the best summer time jacket I have ever bought.
Is it Red or Orange on the Grey model?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's orange on the grey jacket. And a red logo on the black jacket.
Very confused by sizing on Rukka. I am 6'4'' and about 43'' chest. Would 52 fit? Or should it be 54? It looks very baggy in all reviews. I wear 54 in Dainese and BMW jackets, 56 AStars and XXL in Rev'it. Thanks.
Vlad P on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Talk to Revzilla about their return policy ... they are great that way and if it doesn't fit the way you would like, you have that return option if need be...
I am 5'8 and 160lbs with a 44" chest and have a 52 which fits me a little loosely as I like the option of throwing on a layer underneath for those cool nights..

It's a GREAT jacket and my primary "go to" ... only wishing now that I had gone with the lighter color since moving to Texas
What country is this jacket made in?
A shopper on May 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hails from Finland but was manufactured in....you guessed it, China. I like the jacket, it looks nice and is not as heavy as my Klim Badlands. A bit chilly, but it's been forty degrees. Should be great for the summer.
How would this jacket handle rain?
Adam S on Apr 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is a mesh jacket with no liner, so you would get wet! If you need waterproofing I'd look at the Rukka Airman Jacket, it is the same Cordura Air mesh material but the jacket includes a Gore-Tex waterproof liner.
Hi, I wear a Dianese size 56 mesh jacket, what would be the co relative size in Rukka Airirder ?
Naresh R on Dec 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest going down a size. I usually wear a 52 in jackets and the 50 fits me just fine.
Looking to purchase the Rukka AiRider but have a question concerning size. Everything I have read on this jacket says it runs on the rather large side, with some saying go down two sizes. I am 6'2", about 225 with a 45" chest. Size chart says I should be in a 58 but it would seem I should be in a 54 or 56. What size would most likely fit the best without be too snug?
David Z on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'1" and weight 192 lbs and have a ~41" chest. (42" suit coat). In Rukka I wear a 50 (both the AiRider and Armaxis) . However, this size does not allow for much (if any) layers. I wear a t-shirt or wicking shirt underneath...nothing else. The size guide had me at a 52-54. Both were too bid for me. I'm thinking a 54 would fit you well with little room for insulation. Go with 56 if you want to wear more than a t-shirt with it. Note on Rukka products: while I LOVE them, they are a pain in the butt to fit right. I usually buy a couple of sizes ahead of time because the size seems to vary from model to model and year to year.
Is this Jacket much more breathable than the Dianese Air Frame ?
Paulo Bruno F L A on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have both. It flows so well that on a 92 f day with multiple thunderstorms I never took it off. Most comfortable piece of gear I've ever worn.
My wife has a Rukka Flexina winter jacket Size 42. As Rukka do not have women's summer gear (what the...), what size do you recommend in the Rukka Airider?
Beth V on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would say follow the recommendation in the video of taking the size recommended in the size chart and going one size down. The one caution I will give on this jacket is that it is a little on the broad side in the shoulders so I don't know if the cut will be something your wife likes. I would keep that in mind on this particular jacket.
