Outer Trousers:Gore-Tex Pro Shell
The outer of the Rukka Armax jeans is a 3 Layer laminate.
Layer 1: Armacor
A tough mix of Cordura and Kevlar. Every fourth strand of thread in the outer material is Kevlar®, known for it's anti-tear properties. This is complimented by Cordura's abrasion resistance and a water repellent coating. The result is an extremely tough outer shell that remains comfortable.
Layer 3: Lining
A breathable comfort lining is bonded to the Gore-Tex® membrane to provide comfort and protect the Gore-Tex® from wear and tear.
The outside of the jeans features TFL COOL BLACK handling, which reduces the surface temperature of black cordura significantly when exposed to sun radiation, which makes the trousers cooler on sunny days and reduces aging.
The end result is outer trousers that are abrasion and tear resistant as well as waterproof, windproof and breathable providing lasting protection against variable weather elements, from warm weather to torrential rain.
The Armax trousers have a breathable mesh lining and a detachable 80g thermal lining which features Outlast® technology.
Rukka Air Protector armour is designed with breathability in mind and passes CE approval. Knee and hip protectors are all larger than competitors armour, with the intention of covering the area even in the outer garment moves.
Rukka Armax jackets and trousers are machine washable. Machine wash on fine wash programme at 30-40°C with normal fine washing powder without soft rinse agent. Rinse thoroughly. Put only one garment at a time in machine. Remove protectors before washing. Iron at low temperature (no. 1 setting), but not the reflective areas. Do not dry clean,tumble dry at low temperature (max 55°C) one item at time (This also restores the outer water repellancy).
Rukka was founded in a Finnish farm kitched in 1950, inititaly called 'AB Sportsbeklädnad Urheiluvaatetus Oy’. Shortly afterwards they bought their first "welding" gear, enabling them to launch their first range of waterproof clothing.Thankfully, they changed their name to "Rukka" in 1966, which was the nickname of founder Roger Störling. Nowadays, Rukka is an independent division of one of Europe's largest sportswear manufacturers.
Things have moved on since the PVC waterproof suits Barry Sheene wore and the neon pink and purple suits that still seem to be going strong if the BMF show is anything to go by!
The current Rukka clothing range can be broken down into three categories; ArmaProtection Series, AirPower Series and Cordura Series.
