    Is there any way to get Rukka gear in Canada?
    I'm in Vancouver and there seems to be no way to get Rukka locally or even internationally when ordering from the US. It seems Revzilla isn't allowed to ship to Canada for whatever reason. And Rukka itself on their website has no dealers listed in all of Canada. Ordering from Europe ends up costing a whopping 30% extra import fees and that doesn't even include shipping.

    So how do I get Rukka pants (Rukka Armarone Pants) here in Vancouver? Are there any US sellers that ship them. Cycle gear seems to ship them but they don't have my size.

    I need European cut pants because I'm skinny and tall. All American brands are huge in the waist when they are tall enough for my 6'4.

    Klim pants come in tall sizes, btw.

    I bought my rukka from the states, and from fcmoto in Germany. Only paid hst and shipping.

    Thanks I'd need 30 tall from klim but the only start tall at 32 I think. I should ask klim.
    I thought I'd have to pay duty from FC moto. What I don't like about them is that they charge a 10% restock fee. That's a lot fora 900 dollar rukka
    pant.

    No personal experience but:
    There's a distributor close to Montreal; but it's not clear if he's in full operation -
    Rukka Sales Agent CA
    Grassetti Distributions Inc.

    And reportedly there's this guy, who's in the Windsor/Detroit area -

    That guy in Montreal has been listed for a long time, but I've never heard of anyone getting anything through him.

    Definitely there are some distributors in Quebec but I would first checked Klim again. Seems to me that latest models pants are more like tall in previous generations.

    Klim doesn’t offer tall jackets in motorcycle gear.

    I’ve contacted that company in Montreal twice for a quote on Ruka gear. Each time they said they will get back to me and never did.

    I’m 6’5” 200lbs and wear size 106 in jacket and pants from BMW. lots of BMW dealers so you can try the fit.

    BMW gear has that slim European fit you’re looking for. 2 year warranty as well

    I purchased a Pit Bull stand and some Daytona boots from Riders Choice last April. They where generally good to deal with, but the Pit Bull stand was delayed as it wasn’t actually in stock and this was not clear on the website. I would order again from them if they had what I needed, but would check to see if they actually have the stock on hand before confirming the order.

    I spoke to the guy in QC a couple of years ago about some Rukka gloves. He didn't know much about Rukka. Said his son signed them up as a distributor. He indicated that they don't sell direct.

    Revzilla is not allowed to sell Rukka (or Shoei, Sidi, etc.) to Canada. You can buy Rukka from a number of Euro sellers - look on ebay.ca.

    I have a Rukka Armas suit that I leave in Europe. It's bombproof but very hot, not sure if the newer stuff vents better.

    I have bought RUKKA Gear off of eBay through motocentral-usa. Just recently prirchased the RUKKA Down X Trouser, received in Calgary via Air Fed Ex with in three days. They paid the freigst and were a lot less expensive than similar RUKKA Gear on eBay.

    I have bought a few rukka suits in the past from Mike at Trophy. I also have not spoke with him in several years so I have no idea if he is still in business? I know he used to have most of his gear in Detroit but lived in Leamington at the time I was buying from him.

    Another idea could be to look at Aerostitch. They will custom make you a pair of pants, or whatever you desire. Is also top quality gear.
