These Detour 8504 Pants are made of a combination of nylon mesh and polynylon,
with ballistic nylon panels in the knees and rear end. This is one of the most
versatile pairs of motorcycle
riding pants we sell, but at a price that is far less than similar styles
and models. They feature a three layer design that includes a double stitched
mesh outer shell for warm weather use, a removable waterproof liner for wet
days, and a removable, quilted thermal liner for chilly weather riding. We will
take a closer look at the liners here in a minute.
They have a huge size range, including regular sizes XS thru 4X, and short and
tall sizes m thru 3X. There is a fitment chart on the listing to help you to
determine your size.
They also offer a high level of protection, with removable CE rated armor in the
knees, removable foam pads in the hips, and Night Viz reflective panels and
piping on the outside of the legs. On the back of the pants is a padded lower
back area, and the non-slip panel in the seat also provides extra abrasion
resistance. There is also a zippered panel that allows you to connect your pants
to a riding jacket which protects the skin of your lower back in a crash.
Storage comes in the form of these zippered hand warmer pockets that are
protected by these hook and loop panels.
The adjustability of the 8504's makes them incredibly comfortable. The fly is
kept simple for minimal bulk and features a metal zipper and a dual snap pull
tab cover. There are adjustable hook and loop straps at the waist and cuffs of
the legs, and accordion style stretch panels at the knees and in the rear.
The leg closures feature all metal zippers that are protected by these hook and
loop cover flaps. Opening the legs, reveals the removable, waterproof liner,
with expandable zippered gussets at the cuffs for easy on and off. Inside the
waterproof liner, you find a quilted thermal liner that is equipped with
accordion style stretch panels in the knees that match up with the ones in the
shell. Removing the liners is easy using the full circumference zippers at the
