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 great buy!. High tech armor and a great looking jacket. When it's a little cool for a mesh jacket I just wear a wind breaker or heavy wool shirt under it. People like it. For the price and quality you can't loose! Used sizing chart and it fit perfectly.
Jacket is of very good quality armour is not bulky at all like some jackets. As others have said the cuffs are a little tight. Jacket of a very good value
Great summer jacket. Looks good and very comfortable. Ordered one size larger and fits perfect. Cuffs are super tight though but they give a little with wear and intentional stretching. You can feel the air flow just walking around or a slight breeze sitting at a stop sign. No hurry to take it off when you,re done riding.
Liked the product very much ordered one size larger and fits perfectly. The Jacket is made very well and fits my needs for a warm but not cold days. Would highly recommend this Jacket to anyone.
I have to say I was somewhat skeptical of what I was going to get for the price, but I thought I'd take a chance. After a month and a half of use, I'm glad I took the chance. I received the jacket just as the Chicago area was doing it's annual 'Miami in July' imitation. 90-100F and 85-95% humidity. Wearing the jacket was like riding with AC, except at stoplights. Then I was miserable, just like everyone else.8-) My initial reaction to the jacket was that the waist was too short and the cuffs were too tight. Then I sat on my bike and understood the short waist. No need to hike up the jacket. I imagine that the tight cuffs are there to try and keep the armor somewhat in place if you decide to test it. Hope I never have to. I might get a second one
Like the jacket, rode in hot 90 degree weather and felt good while moving, when standing it gets hot. One morning in 60 degree weather was even a bit chilly. So far I'm happy with it.
Looks good. Recovering from crash, so haven't tried yet. Would have more skin now if had it before the crash
Great jacekt. Husband loves. Fit is great. Keeps you cool while riding.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I just received this jacket Jafrum shipped it fast like always.
Fit like a glove. Everything Jafrum said it would be. Almost like wearing nothing, very comfortable and "breezy." Highly recommend for summer biking.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
