Detour 8505 Ballistic Motorcycle Pants Review
Comment: The pants fit good and feel good riding. The only hint of a problem was when I received the pants the front zipper was pulled apart. I unzipped it and zipped it and it seems to be working. I have only worn the pants 3 time so far. I purchased these for an in between set of riding wear as I wear my gerbings when it is cold and these when it is warmer.
Comment: I have another pair of pant, but I ordered these for this season. They are bulky, but I took the liner our and they seemed to fit better. They aren't to hot, but they have plenty of armor. I'm happy with them, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a nice pair of pants, for a reasonable price.
These Detour 8505 Riding pants are made of a durable water resistant
polynylon with stretch material in the groin and the backs of the knees, and
heavy duty ballistic nylon in the knees, hips, and seat. 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.
The fly closure features an all metal zipper with a waterproof gusset and a hook
and loop cover flap with dual snaps at the top.
Safety comes in the form of removable CE rated armor in the knees, built in
padding in the hips and lower back, removable foam padding in the hips, and
reflective panels and piping that start above the outside of the knees and
extend down to the bottom of the cuffs of the legs.
Storage is ample with two hand warmer pockets with waterproof zippers and hook
and loop cover flaps.
Adjustability equals comfort, and these 8505's are definitely adjustable. They
feature dual hook and loop straps at the waist with stretchy panels, accordion
style stretch panels at the knees and rear end, and more hook and loop adjusters
at the cuffs.
The leg closures feature ¾ length waterproof zippers that are tucked away
beneath these hook and loop cover flaps. Open the legs up, and you can see the
removable quilted liner with flex panels in the knees, and the fixed waterproof
liner that guarantees you stay dry for the whole ride.
