Comment: Great looking jacket that arrived as scheduled and as I expected. Fit is good and the size chart made it right the first time.
Detroit area. MI
Comment: I love this jacket. High quality leather, and a great fit. I'm 5'9" 155 lbs, and the medium fit me as expected. Surprisingly warm with the liner in: I rode this around Seattle with only a fleece underneath in 35 degree weather, and was comfortable (at least my torso). Arrived on time, and being on clearance, the price can't be beat. What else can I say? If you want a vintage look, you want this jacket.
Great Fitting Jacket
Comment: I've had this jacket for 8 months now and so far it is an excellent jacket.
It keeps me nice and warm in the winter with the vents zipped up and the inner lining inserted, and cool in the summer without the lining and the vents open. The sleeves are extra long which I personally like because it means they extend all the way to my wrist while I'm reading, but they are noticeably longer when you're not riding. It's got an inner pocket which comes in handy, too.
The leather is soft and supple, but I think it might look like "cheap" leather to anyone with a trained eye for the stuff. It doesn't necessarily look like a cheap jacket, but at the same time the leather doesn't look like the kind you can buy at the motorcycle shop for $400 either.
The style is cool and retro and fits my Triumph Bonneville nicely. The one thing I don't like about it though, and it bothers me a lot, is that someone at the factory took a brillo or steel wool or something and scratched up all of the seams on the leather to give it a "retro" look. I think it looks tacky, like buying jeans with holes already in them, but overall it doesn't detract that much from the jacket's look.
Overall great jacket especially for the price. I would buy it again.
10 months later and I still love it
Comment: Great jacket. I love it. I wanted something with a vintage look to it that still fit me well, which I like a slim fit. I'm 6'1" and weigh about 160 (tall skinny dude) and the medium is great. The arms are definitely long enough, they are a bit tight with the liner if you're wearing long sleeves under. The jacket is definitely a slim fit, and the arms are no exception. Great for me, could be an issue for anybody with Popeye forearms looking for a jacket. I have the sides snapped tight, which works for me. There is more room if I didnt snap the sides tight... if in a few years I get a belly I'll update my review and let you all know how it fits then.
Leather is good quality. It came in the mail while I was at work and I asked my wife if it smelled good and she said it smelled like "cow hide"... She was way off! Buffalo hide haha.
Outside zippers are strong and zip great. The zipper for the liner seems a little weak. I've had the jacket for about 6 months now, and this is my biggest complaint is with the liner. The liner zipper snags a little bit when zipping it in. The snaps that hold the liner sleeves in tend to unsnap when I'm taking the jacket off. So yah, my only issues that I've had are with the liner zipper and the liner snaps, but those are both relatively minor things. I still love it.
The jacket is comfortable. I was very surprised when I tried it in for the first time. For a less-expensive jacket I expected the leather to be quite a bit stiffer. But it is soft, thick, beautiful leather. The collar strap is uncomfortable and I always unbutton it as soon as I'm off the bike, and I really don't notice it when I'm riding. The leather has gotten softer over the months, with no sign of wear.
I have worn this jacket in 35 degrees and in 98 degree weather. Cold weather (35-45) I will wear it with a hoodie or some other layer under it. I will also wear it if we are going to be walking around outside and it's really cold, this is one of my warmest jackets. And with an extra layer, my torso and arms have never been cold (my legs and face are a different story). In hot weather (80+) the jacket is great with all the vents open (chest, underarm, and back) as long as you don't hit any red lights. But that is very expected, I would rather get home from work a little sweaty than have to lay the bike down and need skin grafts or anything like that (Function and safety before fashion. I even always wear a helmet!)
Overall I would definitely recommend this jacket. It is a great jacket, good fit. It should last me a long time. And for the price it doesn't get much better.
I am 5 11 220 lbs with a 42 half inch chest size should i go large or xl?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2015
Best Answer:I'm 5'8" and 44 inch chest. The xl fits spot on. My sleeves are just a little long at rest due to my height, but when stretched out riding, they are perfect. With your height you may want the xl for the sleeve length and just a little extra room for any additional clothing. Either way you go, rest assured that jafrum has excellent customer service, and a return for size policy
The 8021 leather jacket is my favorite non armored Detour jacket. It’s made
of dark brown top grain naked buffalo leather with a patina to it and I’m
telling you, this leather is awesome. The full aniline treatment keeps this
leather butter soft, and really works well with the large grain of buffalo. The
beige rally stripes really complete the retro look. This jacket is definitely
getting added to the personal collection. This jacket isn’t just handsome,
though. It performs on the bike as well. Now, it isn’t armored, so I certainly
wouldn’t put it in the touring jacket category, but as a bar hopper this thing
The 8021 is available in sizes medium to 4X, and the fit is accurate as per the
size chart on the listing. My boy Billy B.A., here, is 5’10” 160 and fits in
this medium perfectly.
The 8021 offers a ton of ventilation, with zippered vents, that also work as
pockets, on the chest, and more vents on the sleeves and on the back. While
we’re on the back you can see that
Detour has kept the
back of this jacket very simple which gives you the opportunity to get a real
good look at the quality of the leather. It really looks great.
The main closure features a brass looking all metal YKK zipper, and a single
snap Euro style collar. Opening the jacket up reveals the removable quilted
thermal liner that is flanked by this hidden zippered pocket. Unzipping the
liner, allows you to see the fixed mesh liner. This liner improves mobility and
comfort by giving you a breathable layer of material between your skin and the
