Heavy Jacket & Great Quality
Comment: Great, Heavy Jacket. I have told my friends about it. Great Quality.
Nice Leather Jacket
Comment: Bought mine during the Clunker exchange program. Figured I couldn't waste a $40 discount coupon. Traded my old leather in for a new one. I'm impressed. Coat is just as heavy and fits better. The nylon zippers may pose a problem in the future but we'll see. This is a well made jacket. Looking forward to wearing it next riding season.

Nice motorcycle jacket
Comment: Nice jacket ,4 day shipping.Fits great, leather nice and soft great for summer night riding.Bought many items from Jafrum and will buy more.
Love this jacket. It runs true to size.
Comment: i'm 5'10" and about 195 pounds with a 44" chest and the XL fit me fine. I have just enough room to wear my vest underneath and a sweatshirt if needed. Venting is great and the sleeves are a little long with my arms down but perfect length when riding. All snaps are hidden on mine. First Buffalo leather jacket i have bought and couldn't be happier.
Iron Mountain, MI
Comment: Much better leather than expected, I've owned others that cost a lot more (teach me for shopping at a dept store-lol), and really, none this nice. A butt load of pockets and appears to be very well made. Probably should have bought two!
Mens Motorcycle Jacket
Comment: There's not much to say, just another great buy from Jafrum. Love the jacket, at a great price.
I highly recommend this jacket
Comment: I highly recommend this jacket Very warm. I ride every day year round and with my old jacket, I would have to ware layers as the temperatures start to get in the low 40, so far this year the coldest temperature was 36 F with this jacket and no layers I was very warm and no wind penetration. I ride 50 miles one way to work and in the afternoon ride the 50 miles home. The ride home sometimes gets warm defiantly need all vents open. This is a heavy jacket would not recommend for warm weather but for cold weather well worth it at an excellent price. If you like the looks don’t hesitate on the warmth of this jacket buy it!!!!
Great leather jacket with good ventilation

An awesome jacket for the money
Comment: Very pleased with this jacket. It is heavy and has an amazing amount of pockets. Being black it will bet warm in some weather but the dual front zippers and dual full length rear zippers allow plenty of air to flow around your chest. I have worn it for a month now riding 900 miles in the process. I took the padded elbows and back pad out right away. Plenty of good things about this jacket and only 1 possible negative - that is the nylon zippers. I have had mine get hung up twice and you need to carefully work it back into place - think I will try a little light was on them to see if that helps. Overall VERY PLEASED and would buy it again. Love it...
Detour 8001 Jacket with Armor Review
Comment: I ordered an extra large and it was too big so I returned it. I'm waiting for Jafrum to get the jackets in brown, size large in stock so I can re-order.
I'm 5'9" and 190 lbs and the XL was way too big.
The jacket is very impressive and a great price, so I'm giving it 5 stars even though I had to return it.
Sonoma County Calif.
Very impressive jacket...
Comment: Delivery was very quick, couple of days. The jacket is good quality and heavy , excellent fit as per the size chart selection. I am very impressed with this jacket, vented Detour 8001. Caught it on sale and it is well worth the price? I would recommend it to my friends!
Detour 8001 Leather Jacket Review
Comment: The Detour 8001 is all that. A well constructed Jacket and functional. All the venting you will need on the road. Like most people stated, order 1 size larger for a better fit. This jacket is for serious bikers, it will take some time to break in but you will definitely be well protected from the elements and most anything that comes up.

Love this jacket!! Detour 8001 Review
Comment: Always wanted a leather riding jacket but have settled for fabric. At this price I had to give the jacket a try.....Love it! Quality construction ...great look ...rock solid leather. Looking forward to many miles of riding
Mens Detour Roundabout Leather Motorcycle Jacket with CE Armor Review
Comment: This is a nice heavy well built jacket, but the size chart is not accurate.
I lost some weight this year and my old leather jacket for cool weather is a bit too loose (size 48). My chest is down to a 46 with 36' waist (5'-9" & ~200lbs) and I bought the XL jacket per the size chart. It fit me just like my old leather jacket. I sent it back and ordered the large.
The large fits me perfectly and I still have room for layering. This is a great jacket with lots of pockets and a great venting system. It should let a lot of air flow through.
Comment: Bought the Detour 8001 as a gift. He was very pleased...couldn't get him to take it off! He was pleased with the look, quality and storage pockets. I was excited with the price. Thx
Great Jacket ! Detour 8001 Review
Comment: The overall quality of the jacket was great. Leather was thick and not too stiff. Great fit and feel. Only issue was with the nylon zipper. Several teeth broke off on the 2nd day I wore it. Returned the jacket with no issues and ordered a different one with a metal zipper.
Comment: This is my second leather motorcycle jacket from Jafrum. I've been riding three seasons on my first purchase and this was a Christmas gift for my son.
The jacket is heavy leather, the zippers are strong and durable, and the many pockets are well designed and thought out. It is warm and has a removable quilted liner for the colder temps, which I've ridden into the 40's with a couple of sweatshirts underneath.
I almost exclusively buy MoCo products for my Harley as I don't want to skimp. For my leather, I buy Jafrum. The MoCo jackets are 4 times as much, but the quality, style, and prices of the Jafrum products are unmatched. Highly recommend Jafrum!!!
St. Charles, Missouri
Wow, a great jacket, very very satisfied
Comment: Great buy, nice heavy jacket, but with plenty of vents to keep very cool on a warm day.
PERFECT JACKET Detour 8001
Comment: This jacket was a PERFECT FIT right out of the box. I ordered this jacket in a medium size as I am 5'10" and buy shirts with 34"/35" sleeves. Heavy weight, warm with inner liner and teh vents are just enough to keep you cool in the warm sun.

Well Worth the Money
Comment: I am impressed with the quality and features. Heavy leather, metal zippers and nice linings. I am 6'2" with a 52' Chest and 275 lbs. The size 4X from the chart was right on the fit. The jacket has good range of motion and sleeves cut long for reaching the bars. I would recommend this jacket, especially at this price.
Mens Detour Roundabout Leather Jacket Review
Comment: This is the heaviest jacket I've ever owned. It is just about as heavy as the genuine Harley jacket I nearly bought for $560, and the quality seems about the same (minus the great Harley graphics). This jacket fits as claimed, though note that if you are buying a 4 or 5XL the sleeves may be a bit long unless you are over 6 feet tall. I bought the buffalo brown model, and it looks great. The leather is soft and pliable and does not look all shiny and new but more like you've had the jacket for a while. I highly recommend this jacket. Great price and perfect for cold spring and fall rides.
Mens Detour Roundabout Leather Jacket Review
Comment: Heavy well made jacket. Make sure to give time to break in. Buffalo leather thick and warm. Storage space galore. Love the styling, would recommend this jacket to all. Removed the armor, not my thing. Have seen 400 to 500 dollar jackets that are not as well built. Buy this coat!!

The real deal
Comment: This jacket is heavy. Pulled the liner and no difference. I've had others with bigger names and they weren't this nice. Great jacket, great price. I recommend it.
Mens Detour Roundabout Leather Jacket Review
Comment: Cut a little generous. Am a true 48 to 50 2XL but had to drop down to a an XL as the length chest and sleeves were a little big. XL fit perfect. This is a quality jacket and surpassed expectations. Really Nice!
Comment: This is a nice heavy jacket, it's warm and functional. However, be cautious with the lining around the little pockets for the armor. I've had two start to come loose. In fact, one is still duct taped. Overall, it's a good jacket, can't beat the orice.
Detour Roundabout Jacket Review
Comment: I did a ton of research on leather jackets at all price points. You will not find a better jacket at a better price than this one! I have worn the jacket down to 40 and as high as 80 and been very comfortable. The venting is super, and the way it is done was a major factor in my purchase. I am a 47" chest, so I went with 2xl and it fits perfectly. I only have two very minor complaints. One of the tabs that you snap the liner sleeve to the jacket came off and the zipper for the liner is not the greatest, but it works. Those two things would not make me spend another $100-200 for a jacket!
Must Buy/Great Jacket
Comment: This jacket is worth every penny. I'm 6:2", 275 lbs. and the 2X fits perfect.Heavy leather, nice zippers and armor. I have bought from Jarum before and this jacket doesn't disappoint, it is one of the best I've worn. Nobody believes this is a $*** leather.

Detour8001 leather jacket Review
Comment: this jacket is very well made, my husband has used it once and said it's great, the good thing about it is you can take out the lining on warmer days. great jacket. highly recommended.
Great Jacket, Great Price
Comment: I normally wear a size XL so that was what I ordered, glad I did, just the right size if I want to wear a sweater underneath. If you don't layer clothes underneath then order one size smaller. Nice looking jacket at a great price.

Detour Roundabout Leather Jacket Review
Comment: Unbelievable value!! Great quality. Very fast shipping… you guys are great!
Great Jacket, Great Price
Comment: Nice looking heavy jacket. I wear an XL so that's what I ordered. It's a little bigger than a normal XL but it leaves enough room for my heavy sweater if I need to layer clothes. For a normal fit I would order a size smaller. It is also a very warm jacket compared to my other leather jackets. Also the heaviest jacket I own.
Bullhead City, Arizona
Comment: First let me thank the Jafrum community for answering my questions about this jacket. You guys were spot on!
The price is remarkable for such a leather jacket. Quality is fantastic. I am 6-1 & weigh around 250 & the 3xl fit me perfect. Im able to get a cotton hoodie underneath & still zip it up. I wanted to get a 4xl but they were out of stock. Kinda glad really due to this jacket kept me quite warm in 41 degree weather, in fact i had to pull over & remove the hoodie because i was getting hot! So with just a short sleeve T & this jacket kept me very comfortable for the remainder of my ride.
The brown leather looks old school, really nice. Zippers appear to be ykk brass all around. The zipper sleeves perfect length. Removable liner is really nice. Hide away pockets with vents are amazing. The air vents are mesh so will keep out rain but allow air flow.
Ok, now i have only & only one negative remark. Now trust me i still would buy & recommend this jacket.
Inside the sleeves were the liner snaps & holds itself in place needs better stitching. The snaps that hold the liner in the arms all well made, for some reason they just didn't give it enough stitches to hold it in place.
But thats small fish. I already fixed mine, took me about 15 min each side. Black thread & fish hook needle, BAM! good to go..
Thanks Jafrum for a great price for a great product.. It saved me 100s of dollars during Christmas.. Im very happy!

High Quality Jacket at a GREAT price
Comment: I wasn't in the market for a leather jacket but at this price I couldn't pass this one up. I ordered a size larger and was glad I did as it gives more room for layering. The leather was not overly stiff in the one I got and the features are fantastic. Thanks Jafrum for offering quality products like this one.
Comment: Just received this jacket and it is a winner. Very heavy to hold in your hand, but no problem wearing it. Really good quality just looking at it. I'm 6' and 190 lb so the Large fits just right. One small dislike is the two outside pockets are small, not deep enough to hold a glove. I may modify them to make them deeper. Inside pockets are good size. I like the unique style.
Are the sleeves tight around the wrists when the zippers are down?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2014
Best Answer:Not as tight as a textile jacket with velcro adjustment at the wrist, but it's tight enough for both my textile and leather gauntlet style gloves to go over the sleeves. This jacket is great! I'm 5'8 1/4" and about 190 lbs, and the size large fits fine even with a hoodie under it. The jacket weighs 7lbs! People can't believe the quality of it for only $***.00. The dark brown makes it look like an old black jacket. This jacket should be able to get a 10 star rating.
I can just get my hands through the opening when the zipper is closed all the way. They are not really tight, but I do not feel any breeze going up the sleeves. It has great summer ventilation with all the airflow zippers and it can handle pretty cool weather too. I got this jacket at Xmastime, and managed a couple of rides in Feb/March (North Carolina).
I would say they are snug, and helps to keep cold air coming in, when wearing an overlapping glove. It's never been an issue for me, and I've ridden in 30s and 40s degree weather. Great jacket! I also where it in 80 degree weather (for the protection). It has good venting!
My sleeves, with the zippers down, fit very well. I get very little wind up the sleeves when using my short gloves. (My long gloves fit over the sleeve ends.) I've found the jacket to be a good selection.
Best Answer:I'm not sure. Have not seen the regular vented jacket. The Roundabout is heavy! Similar to any jacket from Wilson or other manufacturers that sell for over $300.00! I like this jacket better because of the dual rear vent zippers. With the front open and the front zipper vents open, I have ridden in 80 degree weather without sweating to death. With everything zipped up and the liner in, have ridden as low as 45 degrees with just a t-shirt on underneath! Heavy enough for me! The armor is the new CE, very thin and barely noticeable!
Man, this jacket is heavy! I don't think you'll find a heavier one weight-wise--especially at this price. It is very thick (it is buffalo leather). I don't know the millimeter thickness, but you shouldn't be disappointed. Watch the size; I measured and purchased according to the chart, but it is a bit too large, so if your size is in-between, go smaller. Good luck and happy riding!
I don't have the without armor jacket to compare it to. I am completely satisfied with the thickness and quality of this jacket. For the price it cant even be touched by the competition. I always have total confidence in my Jafrum purchases because of their customer service. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
Yes this is a very well put together jacket. With ample sleeve. Get it true to size. It is generously cut. I love this jacket with or without armor. You will be shocked at the good quality, for the price!
It says in the description the jacket has YKK zippers, but in the reviews people mention the nylon zippers. Did they change the design from nylon to metal now? Which im hoping they did.,thats the only thing keeping me from buying.. It looks like a great jacket though. Thanks
Best Answer:I bought mine about 6 months ago, and it has brass zippers. I am 5'81/2" and 195lbs. The large fits perfect., with room for a hoodie underneath. These jackets weigh 7lbs! The brown looks like aan already broke in old black jacket. I still can't believe it only cost $119.00! It's made quite well.
At under $150, the 8001 is packed with features that make is a great all
season riding jacket.
It is constructed out of 100% premium genuine buffalo leather that is available
in brown with brass hardware or black with black hardware. This particular
buffalo leather is very heavy duty and therefore tends to be a little bit
stiffer then cowhide when it痴 new; so, your new jacket may require a little bit
more riding to break it in. But, once it does, buffalo leather gets buttery soft
and provides the ultimate protection, making it the perfect material for a
The collar and lapels on the 8001 snap down to keep them from flapping.
Unsnapping the lapels allows the jacket to be zipped all the way up. The front
has these clever dual duty zippered panels. Unzipping the first zipper exposes a
perforated strip for ventilation. Unzipping the second zipper exposes a small
items pocket and an elastic key keeper. The front also has a zippered hand
warmer pocket on either side. On the waistband, there is an adjustable buckle
strap that allows you to adjust the fit of the waist.
The cuffs of the Detour 8001 are
expandable to make it easier to put on and take off. This also simplifies liner
removal, which we will get back to in a minute.
Moving onto the back, there are two zippered vents that open for breathability.
These vents run the length of the 8001 and will allow air to flow through the
jacket keeping you cool.
Moving onto the interior, there is a removable full sleeve thermal liner. This
liner seals in your body heat and will keep you warm during the colder months.
When it gets warmer outside, you can take the quilted lining out, exposing a
mesh lining that promotes airflow and keeps the leather from sticking to your
skin. To remove the liner, simply unzip the liner from the shell. Then unsnap
the cuffs of the liner from the cuffs of the shell. The liner then pulls right
out. There are pockets on either side of the liner for extra storage.
This jacket comes with a universal zippered stretch panel that allows you to
attach your jacket to a pair of riding pants, giving you a complete riding suit.
This feature helps protect your lower back from the elements as well as the
The Detour 8001 comes with CE
certified armor in both the shoulders and the elbows. This armor is removable,
and the 8001 does a great job of hiding it. The back of the jacket has a
removable spine pad for added protection.
