The mesh allows air flow and its light weight doesn't weigh you down. Good summer no frills jacket at a fantastic price. Once you put it on, it might require a bit of adjustment, but once on, it is all it is supposed to be.

Very simple design, no extras, but thats what I was looking for. Fits well and has good armor. Great for hot days when you need the air to go right through your jacket. Good deal for the price.
No frills hot weather jacket. I bought two! You might need to adjust the velcro that holds the pads in the sleeves because it can scratch your arm. But nice jacket. Great for the price.
Comment: Very simple design, no extras, but thats what I was looking for. Fits well and has good armor. Great for hot days when you need the air to go right through your jacket. Now it costs $20 less than when I bought it!
I measured my chest size and ordered accordingly and it fits great. Its fit is comfortable and it has pockets to hold your stuff both inside and out. I loved the way it seems to instantly wick air through even while stationary. I wish I would have purchased a mesh jacket years ago for my wardrobe.
Great jacket. Light for summer riding and has armor as well. Just wear a sweatshirt under it for cold weather. Exactly what I was looking for.
Its great for everyday use...for that price its a bargain
Great look and fit with nice details.
The price is right and looks great. Its comfortable and def fits the Florida weather.
Jacket is outstanding
Not a bad buy at for the price. This is a no frills straight to the point jacket. It is very light weight and allows good air flow. There are times when the elbow armor fits funny, but overall a good purchase
Does what it advertises.
Good summer jacket was here super fast [onedayearly] fit's good and all for 50.00
Excellent choice for hot weather riding protection. I am a big guy and wish it came in a 4XT. A valuable asset at a value price.
I drive 52 miles round trip to work daily in Houston, Texas on a Vstar 1100, everyday over 95 degrees with high or 107 with high humidity. Needed a new armor mesh jacket to replace my "name brand" one. This quality of this jacket is equal to my old one at 1/3 the price. Air flow is great as long as you are moving. Even stopped in traffic it blocks the sun and to me is cooler than the sun beating down on unprotected arms. Pockets are well placed. Side hip adjusters and arm snaps make for a custom fit. Having used this jacket for 30 straight days there are no signs of wear or any quality issues. Size chart is dead on. Delivery was quick as always. Looking for a mesh jacket with CE protection at a good price, buy this one.
I really like this jacket. It is perfect for hot summer rides. The mesh is very breathable and allows the air to pass right through. The product is 5 star for great quality and great price.
I commute daily 52 miles round trip in Houston, Texas on a Vstar 1100. Bought this jacket to replace a "brand name" mesh jacket. After 30 days I strongly recommend this jacket. The jacket is comfortable and still looks new. I only ride with an armor jacket and gloves. As long as you are moving its as cool as not having a jacket on at all. I feel cooler even at stop lights as the jacket keeps the direct sun off my arms. Pockets work well. Arm snaps keep armor in place and keeps the sleeves from blowing in the wind. Side belts helps the custom fit feel. The collar is a little tight but no big deal. Delivery was in three days. Jafrums service is great with follow up on order which adds a personel touch.
Nice lightweight mesh jacket, decent air flow and armor. Fits true to size. Good bang for the Buck summer jacket.
Great jacket. I think it is actually cooler to wear the jacket than just riding in a t-shirt! The armor is a bonus.
Wanted a cool summer jacket and still have the CE rated protection. This jacket was better than expected. The sizing was right and fits great. Shipping was fast too.
For less than fifty dollars, the Detour 8016 is an option for those who want to ride in warmer weather but want the protection of a CE approved armored jacket.
The 8016 comes in two colors; all black with black hardware or black and silver with black hardware. The 8016 is constructed out of a lightweight nylon mesh fabric that provides maximum airflow.
The closure is constructed using a reinforced metal zipper and has a 1 snap Euro style collar for a low profile look.
The lower portion of the jacket has a zippered hand warmer pocket on either side for added storage. The interior has a pocket in the liner with a hook and loop style fastener.
Despite this jacket ultra-light weight, The 8016 still offers some protection. It has removable CE approved armor in both the elbows and shoulders and a removable foam back pad. The shell of the jacket also has additional shock absorbers built right into the material. There is also a universal zippered pant connector. Connecting your pants to your jacket provides extra protection for your lower back.
The 8016 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 zippered expanders that make your jacket and glove easy to get on and off.
