Great Jacket From Great Company

I cant say that I have top end of spectrum of riding experience, but I'm not a newbie, either. I researched like a nerd for over a month for a simple, good quality jacket that I could wear in 40 degree weather. I also wanted a company easy to deal with, especially with returns. I think I read every review on the web and this site regarding this jacket. I measured and ordered. I got the jacket in like 4 or 5 dys. I was blown away by the quality, options and the weight. It ended up being too big;my fault. The exchange process has to be among the easiest, simplest, and fastest I've ever used. Apparently, I forgot to stipulate on the exchange sheet what new size I wanted. They called me like with in a day to ask for a size, but call went to my voice mail. By the time I heard the message it was very late at night, so I just emailed them. They acknowledged my email <24hr. Again, 4-5 dys later I got the new jacket; fits perfect. I took it out today first time for ride on sunny day with an accuweather real time reading of 49 degree. The jacket worked perfectly! It's loaded with pockets. Jafrum has made me a huge fan and customer for life. Not enough companies left now with this kind of efficiency, attention to detail, and commitment to customer service.

Detour 8001 Leather Jacket Review

by - verified purchaser
The Detour 8001 is all that. A well constructed Jacket and functional. All the venting you will need on the road. Like most people stated, order 1 size larger for a better fit. This jacket is for serious bikers, it will take some time to break in but you will definitely be well protected from the elements and most anything that comes up.

Detour 8001 Jacket with Armor Review

by - verified purchaser
I ordered an extra large and it was too big so I returned it. I'm waiting for Jafrum to get the jackets in brown, size large in stock so I can re-order. I'm 5'9" and 190 lbs and the XL was way too big. The jacket is very impressive and a great price, so I'm giving it 5 stars even though I had to return it.

An awesome jacket for the money

by - verified purchaser
Very pleased with this jacket. It is heavy and has an amazing amount of pockets. Being black it will bet warm in some weather but the dual front zippers and dual full length rear zippers allow plenty of air to flow around your chest. I have worn it for a month now riding 900 miles in the process. I took the padded elbows and back pad out right away. Plenty of good things about this jacket and only 1 possible negative - that is the nylon zippers. I have had mine get hung up twice and you need to carefully work it back into place - think I will try a little light was on them to see if that helps. Overall VERY PLEASED and would buy it again. Love it...

I ordered this jacket Tuesday and received it Saturday (Today). I was shocked at the quality of this jacket. I expected a typical leather jacket but this took my breath away. WOW- best leather jacket I have ever purchased. I'm totally happy with my choice and I'll be on the road wearing this everywhere I go. What a bargain.

I highly recommend this jacket

by - verified purchaser
I highly recommend this jacket Very warm. I ride every day year round and with my old jacket, I would have to ware layers as the temperatures start to get in the low 40, so far this year the coldest temperature was 36 F with this jacket and no layers I was very warm and no wind penetration. I ride 50 miles one way to work and in the afternoon ride the 50 miles home. The ride home sometimes gets warm defiantly need all vents open. This is a heavy jacket would not recommend for warm weather but for cold weather well worth it at an excellent price. If you like the looks don’t hesitate on the warmth of this jacket buy it!!!!

Motorcycle Jacket

by - verified purchaser
Much better leather than expected, I've owned others that cost a lot more (teach me for shopping at a dept store-lol), and really, none this nice. A butt load of pockets and appears to be very well made. Probably should have bought two!

At under $150, the 8001 is packed with features that make is a great all season riding jacket.

It is constructed out of 100% premium genuine buffalo leather that is available in brown with brass hardware or black with black hardware. This particular buffalo leather is very heavy duty and therefore tends to be a little bit stiffer then cowhide when it痴 new; so, your new jacket may require a little bit more riding to break it in. But, once it does, buffalo leather gets buttery soft and provides the ultimate protection, making it the perfect material for a motorcycle jacket.

The collar and lapels on the 8001 snap down to keep them from flapping. Unsnapping the lapels allows the jacket to be zipped all the way up. The front has these clever dual duty zippered panels. Unzipping the first zipper exposes a perforated strip for ventilation. Unzipping the second zipper exposes a small items pocket and an elastic key keeper. The front also has a zippered hand warmer pocket on either side. On the waistband, there is an adjustable buckle strap that allows you to adjust the fit of the waist.

The cuffs of the Detour 8001 are expandable to make it easier to put on and take off. This also simplifies liner removal, which we will get back to in a minute.

Moving onto the back, there are two zippered vents that open for breathability. These vents run the length of the 8001 and will allow air to flow through the jacket keeping you cool.

Moving onto the interior, there is a removable full sleeve thermal liner. This liner seals in your body heat and will keep you warm during the colder months. When it gets warmer outside, you can take the quilted lining out, exposing a mesh lining that promotes airflow and keeps the leather from sticking to your skin. To remove the liner, simply unzip the liner from the shell. Then unsnap the cuffs of the liner from the cuffs of the shell. The liner then pulls right out. There are pockets on either side of the liner for extra storage.

This jacket comes with a universal zippered stretch panel that allows you to attach your jacket to a pair of riding pants, giving you a complete riding suit. This feature helps protect your lower back from the elements as well as the pavement.

The Detour 8001 comes with CE certified armor in both the shoulders and the elbows. This armor is removable, and the 8001 does a great job of hiding it. The back of the jacket has a removable spine pad for added protection.

Why did you choose this?
Jafrum Store
I like the style off this jacket. Again with the buttons; the buttons holding down the lapels are too weak. Once in a while one will pop loose and slap the side of my face. Other than that, great jacket.

Are the sleeves tight around the wrists when the zippers are down?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2014
Best Answer:Not as tight as a textile jacket with velcro adjustment at the wrist, but it's tight enough for both my textile and leather gauntlet style gloves to go over the sleeves. This jacket is great! I'm 5'8 1/4" and about 190 lbs, and the size large fits fine even with a hoodie under it. The jacket weighs 7lbs! People can't believe the quality of it for only $***.00. The dark brown makes it look like an old black jacket. This jacket should be able to get a 10 star rating.

I am concerned with the sleeve length? I am a tall man, do not think it will work for me.
Paul F on Nov 19, 2014
Best Answer:You may want to check out one of our tall jackets. MJ407Tall is one example.

Is this jacket as thick as the regular vented jacket without the armor? 1.4mm or ? Thanx..
blitzer b on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer:I'm not sure. Have not seen the regular vented jacket. The Roundabout is heavy! Similar to any jacket from Wilson or other manufacturers that sell for over $300.00! I like this jacket better because of the dual rear vent zippers. With the front open and the front zipper vents open, I have ridden in 80 degree weather without sweating to death. With everything zipped up and the liner in, have ridden as low as 45 degrees with just a t-shirt on underneath! Heavy enough for me! The armor is the new CE, very thin and barely noticeable!

It says in the description the jacket has YKK zippers, but in the reviews people mention the nylon zippers. Did they change the design from nylon to metal now? Which im hoping they did.,thats the only thing keeping me from buying.. It looks like a great jacket though. Thanks
blitzer b on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer:I bought mine about 6 months ago, and it has brass zippers. I am 5'81/2" and 195lbs. The large fits perfect., with room for a hoodie underneath. These jackets weigh 7lbs! The brown looks like aan already broke in old black jacket. I still can't believe it only cost $119.00! It's made quite well.
