The Rukka Kalix 2.0 jacket is a dual-layer waterproof Gore-Tex laminate garment with three-season versatility for touring, commuting and adventure riding.
As an upgrade of the original Kalix suit, this touring Gore-Tex jacket has a hydrophobic coating that works to bead water off the top layer, instead of allowing the rainwater to soak in. The shell is made from 600 denier nylon that is incredibly abrasion-resistant while feeling considerably lighter than a 3-layer Gore-Tex garment but still boasting waterproof/breathable properties.
In terms of comfort, the jacket has a soft neoprene collar that provides additional comfort and warmth without feeling constrictive around your neck. Adjustments at the hem, cuff and arms give you a customized fit whatever your body shape, while elasticated bands on the forearms offer complete freedom of movement, and a connecting zip allows you to convert your jacket and Rukka trousers into a one-piece suit.
The Kalix 2.0 has D3O Air limb protection at the elbows and shoulders provide fantastic protection from abrasion and impacts, and for extra protection, there is a pocket designed to fit the D3O Air All or Full back protector.
Through Spring, Summer and Autumn, the jacket boasts ventilation openings on either side of the garment, with long 2-way zippered closures that allow cool, fresh air into the jacket keeping you comfortable while you ride. And while the jacket does lack a built-in thermal liner, though this can be easily remedied with a set of base layers under your regular clothing!
