My wife and I love these. Wanted armour protection like our standard jackets, but needed ventilation in our desert 90-100+ summers. This fills the bill, together with a wet bandana. Great air flow, was noticeable even before moving when there was a light breeze. Only time we feel the heat is at stoplights. Couldn't find any others at a comparable price. Have worn them for about a month and they seem to be well constructed, given the price point!!!!

I bought it when it was $69, my only regret. I measured my chest size and ordered the size and it fits perfectly. Great comfort, pockets for your stuff, cool in the hot weather.
I TOO BOUGHT MINE FOR THE $69 PRICE JUST THREE WEEKS AGO...Nice Jacket, no regrets.
I bought this jacket and was very impressed with the design. This jacket is perfect for riding in temperatures exceeding the high 90s. Unfortunately, I had to send it back due to sizing issues.
This is a very comfortable jacket. It fits me like a glove, everywhere but the cuffs, which are a little too small for my hands. But it's cool and otherwise comfortable, so I'm liviing with it. Delivered on time and would recommend it highly.
Great Jacket, and I agree that it is perfect for hot weather...The meshing displaces the moving air very well throughout the jacket while riding, and I still get a kick out of how it can make the humid Florida weather somewhat cooler on many rides.. The cuffs are a little snug, but only when you are putting the jacket on or taking it off... Great value for the price..
Purchased this for warm weather riding so I am not tempted to ride without protection. The quality is surprisingly high. A light jacket underneath allows for rideing into the 60's. Delivery was quick.Jafrum is THE place for riding gear.
It is true to size and is lightweight. It does let the air flow through it to keep you cool. I got it while it was on sale which is an added bonus. I recommend it.
I ordered this jacket, it arrived promptly, fit well, was cool and comfortable, and it had all of the features described. I'm very happy with my purchase.
It's a nice jacket. The sizing instructions are correct. Lots of air flow, I think it will be nice in the warmer weather. (got mine in fall and have been wearing with another jacket underneath)
I purchased this jacket to battle the humid summers in the Virginia Beach area. It is very comfortable and the protective armor does not feel stiff like other jackets I've tried. The cuffs are tight but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. I'm 6'-1" and weight approx. 180 and I bought the large which fits well but could be a little longer on the sleeves. I typically wear a 38" sleeve length and this seems like a 37". I will keep it because it fits well everywhere else and I don't think it will help with the cuff size. Overall, very good jacket for the price.
Fit like a glove. Everything Jafrum said it would be. Almost like wearing nothing, very comfortable and "breezy." Highly recommend for summer biking.
I just received this jacket Jafrum shipped it fast like always.
Bought this for my summer riding in southern Arizona. It offers armor where you need it while still allowing air in. Follow the sizing guide and it should fit perfectly. Highly recommended for the warmer climates.
Bought this jacket strictly for protection in hot weather. Jacket breathes very nicely yet still gives protection with CE armor. Have worn in 100 deg+ weather and it does what I expected. You still get warm but good airflow makes it bearable. Sizing a little off, order next size larger for good fit.
This jacket is a great starter, summer jacket. It stays considerably cool. Although I would like a little bit more armor on the elbows, shoulders, and a more back padding, I think this is a great jacket. Worth every spent dollar.
For years I rode in the summer with just a tee shirt, wondering how others wore jackets. After sliding down the asphalt, I decided I was too old for road rash anymore. The jacket is Great! I've rode with it on in 90+ and it may be cooler that just a tee shirt. Great jacket, Great price!
Excellent value. Found that the wrists were very tight on the size the chart suggested. Returned was quick and easy. Next size up fits great.
Great jacekt. Husband loves. Fit is great. Keeps you cool while riding.
Looks good. Recovering from crash, so haven't tried yet. Would have more skin now if had it before the crash
Asphalt doesn't get softer just because it's hot out. Well actually it does, technically, I guess; but it still hurts if you bounce off of it without the proper gear on. A mesh jacket is the perfect way to stay protected on hot days. Most mesh motorcycle jackets start at around 120 bucks. The Detour 8015 is on sale exclusively on Jafrum.com for fifty nine dollars and ninety nine cents. I'm not even sure how that's possible, but it's true.
The 8015 is constructed out of a lightweight nylon mesh fabric that is really soft compared to a lot of mesh jacket materials. This black and silver jacket has reflective piping for greater visibility and the collar has a padded ridge that prevents irritation.
The outer front pockets have zippered closures for added security and there is an interior pocket with a hook and loop style closure.
Despite this jacket's ultra-light weight, The 8015 still offers some protection. It has removable CE approved armor in both the elbows and shoulders and a removable foam back pad. There is also a universal zippered pant connector. Connecting your pants to your jacket provides extra protection for your lower back.
The 8015 is very adjustable. There is a hook and loop belt at the waist that adjusts to your preference. This keeps the waist of your jacket fitting snuggly to your body. The sleeves are adjustable to three positions. This is a really important feature on a mesh jacket. As the air passes through this mesh material it gets caught on the backside of the arm by the armor. This will cause a very intense buffeting of the jacket at speed. By snugging up the arms you eliminate the flapping arm material making the jacket much more comfortable. This feature also adds to the safety of the jacket by holding the armor in place. The cuffs of the sleeves have adjustable straps for a secure fit although they're already very snug. In fact, some riders with very large hands may find this jacket a little bit tough to get off.
