Comment: I found a jacket like this in a local store, but they didn't have my size. I ordered it here and got it much cheaper! It fits fantastically and I love it!
Comment: Jacket was received two days after ordering it. My wife wore it on Christmas for a 100 mile ride with temperatures in the low 40s/upper 30s and was comfortable the whole time! Looks great and WAY LESS MONEY without being "cheap" in quality.
Comment: Found this jacket with purple stripe......after looking at hundreds of jackets. Only one I found wirh purple. Ordered it Monday and it came Tuesday. Great price and the quality is exceptional. I love it!!
Comment: Love the jacket, good fit and stylish.
Comment: Love the jacket it fits perfect! it's not to heavy and it's very warm..
Comment: I ordered this so that it would coordinate with my bike and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. The size I needed was out of stock but ended up happy with the next size up. I am very top heavy and this fit me well thru the bust. The midsection I had altered down a couple of sizes and it was done quite easily. My only complaint is the liner zipper is junk and is being replaced by my seamstress. The stripe between the purple and black is gray...wish it were white. High quality for the price!!!
Great Looking Jacket
Comment: I ordered and returned two other jackets (from other sources) because they just didn't fit right. This jacket is great. I found it very true to size. It's very comfortable to wear; the collar is not bulky and irritating like some leather jackets tend to be. And, it's a very sharp looking jacket, with great quality leather, zippers and workmanship. (One jacket that I ordered had such a horrible zipper that I was ready to ship it back without trying it on! Took about 5 minutes and a lot of tugging to get it unzipped.) I would definitely purchase Detour jackets again, and recommend them to friends. And, Jafrum is great with shipping and returns. I always feel confident when purchasing from them.

Detour vented leather jacket review
Comment: I got it for my wife just before our week motor cycle trip and she loved it , it came in real handy at times its a good quality product.
Comment: I am very pleased with the quality of the jacket. I bought this for a Christmas present and I can't comment on the fit yet. From what I see, this is a great leather jacket at a great price. The transaction went smoothly and delivery time was as promised.
Comment: This jacket is beautiful and so durable. It is perfect for cold weather rides as well as warmer rides as it is vented. I already had my mind made up to buy this jacket before I saw the price, then I realized the amazing deal this jacket is. So not only is it a beautiful jacket, but it didn't break my wallet either. I highly recommend this jacket. If you're questioning it...trust me and go for it! You won't regret it.
Jacket size chart was EXACT
Comment: Bought this for my daughter's 14th birthday, she wears xl. I tried the kids size 3xl, but it was small, and thin leather. Decided to go for women's size M, and sleeves now have 2" for her to grow into. This jacket will definitely last many years because the leather is properly thick (except for the pink stripe) for a cycle jacket, but buffalo is apparently much softer than cowhide. It has a beautiful pebble grain texture and that great leather smell.
The liner does not look nearly as serious, but I could be wrong. It is less than half the thickness of what I got with my Cortech DSX denim cycle jacket for about the same price.
Customer Service was great about the return of the kiddie version, and my daughter is absolutely thrilled to have serious, great looking leather.
All things considered, I think this jacket was an amazing value, and would buy from this company again in a heartbeat.
The Detour 8309 is constructed using top grain buffalo leather and is packed with features for a very reasonable price. It's available in sizes small thru four X and the fit is accurate per the size chart. Jessica, here, is 5'8'' 145 and fits great in a medium. It comes in three color ways; all black, black with a large pink stripe and silver accents, and black with a large purple stripe and silver accents. All three of the color ways feature polished silver looking hardware. The main closure has a reinforced YKK zipper and the neckline features a two snap Euro-style collar for a low profile look. The front features two zippered vents and two hand warmer pockets as well. The waist features a zippered gusset with a two position strap for a very versatile and comfortable fit. There are also zippered gussets at the cuffs of the sleeves to make getting the jacket on and off easier. The back of the 8309 features expandable shoulder joints for increased mobility, and zippered exhaust vents to extract hot air from the jacket. The interior of the 8306 features a removable full sleeve quilted liner that is flanked on either side by a zippered pocket. On warmer days, you can remove this liner by unzipping it from the shell and unsnapping it from the cuffs of the sleeves. This liner folds up small making it easy to pack into a saddlebag, and removing it exposes a mesh liner that promotes airflow.
