Product Review: Rukka Orivesi jacket and trousers

This Rukka Orivesi jacket and trousers will be at the very top end of most budgets, but was my go-to suit all winter. I ride every day regardless of the weather and this suit kept me warm and snug throughout the colder months, thanks to the detachable inner liner with Outlast® temperature regulation and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane.

With the trousers and jacket zipped together, the outfit keeps me sheltered from the elements, but if it’s hot and I have to take the lining out, then unfortunately the Gore-Tex part of the suit goes with it, leaving it more showerproof than waterproof!


Alongside weather protection, it’s very well armoured, however still remains comfortable. With five outer pockets, a large one at the rear for maps and two inner compartments, there’s plenty of space to hold my belongings and a detachable collar for bad weather keeps my neck protected.

Plenty of adjustment allows for that perfect fit and there is ample ventilation on the front and sides. It feels well-made, but personally I would prefer the Gore-Tex to be part of the outer suit.
