Rukka

If a man from the SE were to buy Rukka gear, where would be a good place to look/buy?

Which type of Rukka Gear would be good for year round riding? Armax?

Temps from as low as 20F to 95F.

Would I need to get a second job to pay for this?

Frank Cooper in Springfield, VA tel 800-217-3526 can give you the lowdown.
He is the US importer. My wife wears the Rukka APR2 (air system) in the summer time ( a 2003 model). Maybe 55 to 95, mostly 70-95 with out the linings. Might need a 3rd job with the current pricing.

Yes, and you'll also need to bring a knife and remove your underwear. You can give them the left one.

Go look at the BMW gear, still expensive, but not absolutely insane like Rukka.

Re: Rukka

Stupidly expensive in the US.

But, I have some 15 year old Rukka pants that I bought in Germany on sale. The absolute best, at any temperature and waterproof. Just great. They are now pretty much worn out, but they are the best!

+1 - I've had the RUKKA air pants for more than five years. Lots of miles on them and love these pants. The colour is faded but they are still waterproof and comfortable. Well worth the price.
