Rukka Motorcycle Trousers
Rukka is the Rolls Royce of motorcycle clothing manufacturers; their trousers and their jackets are ultra high performance, and are designed for the motorcyclist who puts in high mileages, and who rides throughout the year whatever the conditions. Most of Rukka's motorcycle trousers have a laminated construction, where the waterproof membrane is bonded to the trousers' inner and outer layers? This delivers the ultimate in waterproofing, and prevents the pants from ever "wetting out". One downside of laminated garments is the price, as only Gore-Tex does laminating well, and the manufacturing is exceedingly complex. The other downside is that laminated garments tend to be rather stiff, so they are not always the most comfortable to wear. Rukka does, however, also produce some trousers with a traditional drop-liner, and these avoid the downsides of the laminated method of construction.
