Detour 8501 Motorcycle Pants with Removable CE Armor Review
Comment: Fit true, good construction and material. Knee pad pocket does get in the way when putting on and fly could give more room when putting on but overall awesome for the price.

Comment: Had a excellent experience shopping with Jafrum! Fast shipping and superb quality pants! I am 5'11 and weigh 180 lbs, the size large fit perfectly. Opened the box tried on the pants and decided to go for a 'short' ride, well about 200 miles later in 50 degree weather, wind chill drops that into the 40's, pants kept me nice and warm! Comfortable the whole ride! Thank you Jafrum!
Detour 8501 Pants Review
Comment: The pants fit great and appear well made and a great value for the price. Although I normally wear a 32 inseam The pant appeared baggy if they break on the boot. The short does not appear baggy and are very comfortable. My normal waist size is in the 36 - 37 range and the large fit great. I have not ridden in them yet but I have worn them enough to expect they will be very comfortable and warm on a long ride
Great bang for the buck
Comment: I bought these pants as I am on a limited budget and needed a pair of riding pants. I ordered the next size up as suggested in other reviews.
After removing the inner liner and rain liner, the pants fit me perfectly. (note: I didn't need the other liners and the pants would have fit fine with them on.) They breath well in the heat and I felt comfortable on the bike.
These are good quality and I'm happy to have them. All the gear, all the time!!! Thanks Jafrum
These Detour 8501 Textile Riding Pants are made of a durable water and
abrasion resistant polynylon, and are an incredible value for the features and
details that you get with these pants. They have a huge size range including
regular sizes XS thru 4X, and Short and Tall sizes M thru 3X. Our model is
5'10", with an average build and proportion, and fits perfectly in the medium
regulars. They have reinforced panels in all of the high-wear areas like the
rear end and the knees, and all of the seams are double stitched. For
protection, there is CE approved armor in the knees, and extra padding in common
impact areas like the hips, shins, and lower back.
Storage is plentiful with the 8501's. There are polyester lined hand warmer
pockets at the waist and mesh lined pockets on the thighs that double as vents.
The main closure features a zippered and gusseted fly with dual hook and loop
straps for adjustability. The leg openings feature lightweight nylon zippers
that are protected from the elements by these hook and loop flaps with
reflective trim at the bottom. Inside the leg closure, you can see the removable
quilted thermal liner that has its own metal zipper and the fixed waterproof
liner with taped seams to keep the wet off of you.
The only things that separate these pants from ones that cost two to three times
as much is that the exterior material is not completely waterproof nor are the
zippers. You can treat the material, though, with a waterproofing spray, and the
liner is waterproof. The other would be breathability of the waterproof liner.
This liner is not going to allow hot air out of the garment like a high end
Gore-Tex type liner will.
