Rukka's stylish new waterproof gloves

Published: 19 May 2010

Rukka have pulled off the trick of producing a glove that's stylish, offers a full compliment of protection and is waterproof and breathable.  

The Apollo gloves feature Gore-Tex's X-Trafit technology, which uses a triple-layer laminate to keep your hands dry and let them breath. The gloves are made from what Rukka claim is "extremely abrasion-resistant high-quality goat leather", and there are leather covered carbon protectors at the knuckles and fingers.

A visor wipe on the left-hand thumb is a handy addition, while there's stacks of reflective piping on the back of the hand and fingers.

They're available in sizes 7-13 in black or black/white, and cost £159.99. More info:
