Rukka “Armaxion” Jacket Review The Rukka Armaxion jacket is sort of a variant of the ultra-spec Rukka Armas jacket (review). The Armaxion jacket differs in that it doesn’t have the Superfabric or the Gore Lockout closure system (report) of the Armas. It also has a slightly different cut or styling than the Armas; the former is more of …
