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

Great jacket shame about the price
I ride all year and in all weathers with a 50mile each way commute. I put a high priority on staying warm and dry. This jacket does that. It doesn't leak (much) even after a recent longer trip of 5 hours in a torrential downpour! The high collar is excellent in the colder months at sealing out draughts around the neck, although the Velcro does snag on the bottom of my lid a bit. The pockets aren't very waterproof, despite the lockout zips so don't carry anything in them that needs to stay dry! The flouro on the sleeves is a great idea but it gets filthy quickly and is very hard to keep, or get, clean. I'd advise separate flouro waistcoat /jacket as having had mine for a year, the flouro is now more grey than yellow and I wash mine every 2-3 months. It is certainly good, but it is also very expensive. Is it worth it? Depends...
