Rukka ArmaS Gore-Tex Jacket - Black
Rukka Arma-S Gore-Tex Jacket Mens - Black
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.

Rukka was founded in a Finnish farm kitchen in 1950, initially called 'AB Sportsbeklädnad Urheiluvaatetus Oy’.
Shortly afterwards they bought their first "welding" gear, enabling them to make waterproof seams and launch their first range of waterproof clothing. Thankfully for international audiences, they changed their name to the less-intimidating "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 of the 80's, Rukka are at the leading age of motorcycle clothing development, working with leaders such as W.L. Gore and DuPont on new materials and testing. Every material is extensively tested by Rukka and the material manufacturers in every condition you'll find motorcycle riders.
The flags in the Rukka logo spell Rukka in the international flag alphabet, a tribute to Rukka's roots in sailing, which, along with motorcycle riding, can create the most testing weather conditions any of us are likely to encounter.
Why Would You Choose Rukka?
There are a great many motorcycle clothing brands competing for your attention and cash, and at Infinity Motorcycles we carefully filter the brands we offer so that they all excel at something.
Rukka, hailing from Finland as they do, excel at creating clothing that is useful in harsh winter climates and is extremely tough. Many consider it to be the highest-tech motorcycle clothing available on the market today, and we certainly wouldn't put up a counter-argument.
Being hardy, tough and well-built, it naturally lasts a long time – so the adage "buy cheap, pay twice" is definitely relevant here. Rukka is more expensive than some other brands, but can last much longer and consequently comes with generous warranties, so factoring this in you can get a lot more clothing for your money with Rukka.
One of the reasons for Rukka jackets' toughness is the attention and care taken during construction. The stitching and attention to detail at wear points on Rukka products has a legitimate claim to being the best in the business, and it is an aspect of motorcycle clothing that is often ignored by the cheaper brands, resulting in excessive wear and a need to replace your motorcycle clothing more frequently.
What most people think of when they think of Rukka, even more than their extreme toughness and weather resistance, is features. Rukka have more features, clever additions and high tech fabrics than any other brand we can think of that caters to the same audience. From armour and armour pockets on every stretch of jacket, to the advanced Gore-Tex and Superfabric materials that make the jackets weather and abrasion resistant, respectively – their special features run the gamut from life-saving, to leg-saving, to simply day-saving.
That's the short version of why you would choose Rukka – for the long version, with a hefty dose of personal experience, come into one of our Infinity stores and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff.
Why Not Rukka?
It's also important to recognise that you might not choose Rukka for some roles. While Rukka make very versatile motorcycle clothing (great for off-road, sports and touring – a really rare combination), it's not Dainese race gear, and it doesn't want to be.
Similarly, if you're not sure if you'll still be riding motorcycles in five years’ time (for whatever reason), some of the advantages of Rukka motorcycle clothing will be a bit lost on you. Although you'll still have the advantage of top of the range protection, it might not be so important to you that the construction is high enough quality to last for years on end, or that Rukka clothing comes with a five year warranty.
All in all, however, we think Rukka are an incredibly good brand of motorcycle clothing, and deceptively good value for money.

The best jacket you will ever buy.
I can not rate the Rukka arma-S jacket highly enough it is an awesome jacket that performs as you would expect and more. Don't let the price tag put you off it is worth every penny I am so glad I purchased it and when it needs replacing I will buy another. There are so many good features that come in the jacket and I am particularly impressed is the cooling effect. Wearing it out it on a ride you don't feel restricted at all.
Yes the price is high but it's worth every penny. The jacket fits very well and always feels comfortable, has some really cool functions and design pieces the quality is second to none. The jacket has also never leaked despite being in some heavy rain many times. The outlast lining seems to keep you just at the right temperature in spring and autumn, but I take this out in summer. The only criticism I have is the vents don't seem to work as I'd like, if you open them up the whole jacket seems to puff up as if the air can't escape properly.
Rukka Armas Jacket
Don't waste your money on anything else ... This jacket is simply fantastic. Nearly 2 years of good use, commuting 60 miles 2/3 days a week it has never let me down. Warm and DRY it fits like a glove and has not shown any signs of wear and tear. The "zip" is fine but you need to keep it wiped with the silicone stick every couple of weeks just to ensure it works smoothly. If the cost puts you off then ale advantage of Infinity interest free credit ... That's what I did and very simple to set up. The best jacket out there.
Bought 2008, Still going strong
I wrote the review for this Rukka jacket two years ago and now having owned it for 4 years it is still performing perfectly, the hi viz colours are fading but perhaps that is to be expected, all else is perfect. Would definitely buy another.
High Price But High Quality
I have used this jacket on an almost dailly basis for more than 2 years. It has never let in any rain or cold even down to just plus 2 degrees in winter. The neoprene collar is comfortable, wind and rain proof and I cant imagine living without one of those in the winter any more. I keep looking at other jackets but have yet to find one which I would even consider changing into. I went for the hi-viz yellow version and would also choose this one again as I am sure it has constantly brought me to the attention of other road users who would otherwise have pulled out in front of me. The Jacket is definitely a class act and well worth the money.
