Made from a new breathable yet highly abrasion resistant Cordura AFT fabric, the Rukka Airob comes loaded with all the amenities of a European range-topping touring jacket. Made for summer, the jacket also sports a removable Gore-Tex inner jacket that features temperature control as well as air-permeable, CE-certified body armor and double layer fabric in crash zones like the elbows and shoulders.
While we love all the functionality and safety that’s been considerately built in like the adjustable fitments on the arms and forearms, we just can’t get over the Platinum era Marvel comics styling. Maybe that’s a bit harsh, but only because the $1095 jacket is so full of pure utilitarian secret-ops awesomeness that our inner 14 year-olds really want to like. Then we realize we’d have to wear it in public, as adults.
That said, we think the all black is fantastic minus the branded chest graphics and myriad logos on the waist and arms.
