Comment: Very simple design, no extras, but thats what I was looking for. Fits well and has good armor. Great for hot days when you need the air to go right through your jacket. Good deal for the price.

Comment: No frills hot weather jacket. I bought two! You might need to adjust the velcro that holds the pads in the sleeves because it can scratch your arm. But nice jacket. Great for the price.

Great Mesh Jacket, should have bought years ago
Comment: I measured my chest size and ordered accordingly and it fits great. Its fit is comfortable and it has pockets to hold your stuff both inside and out. I loved the way it seems to instantly wick air through even while stationary. I wish I would have purchased a mesh jacket years ago for my wardrobe.

Detour mesh Motorcycle Jacket
Comment: Jacket is outstanding
Comment: Not a bad buy at for the price. This is a no frills straight to the point jacket. It is very light weight and allows good air flow. There are times when the elbow armor fits funny, but overall a good purchase
Detour Mesh Jacket Review
Comment: The mesh allows air flow and its light weight doesn't weigh you down. Good summer no frills jacket at a fantastic price. Once you put it on, it might require a bit of adjustment, but once on, it is all it is supposed to be.

Great HOT weather jacket Detour 8016
Comment: I drive 52 miles round trip to work daily in Houston, Texas on a Vstar 1100, everyday over 95 degrees with high or 107 with high humidity. Needed a new armor mesh jacket to replace my "name brand" one. This quality of this jacket is equal to my old one at 1/3 the price. Air flow is great as long as you are moving. Even stopped in traffic it blocks the sun and to me is cooler than the sun beating down on unprotected arms. Pockets are well placed. Side hip adjusters and arm snaps make for a custom fit. Having used this jacket for 30 straight days there are no signs of wear or any quality issues. Size chart is dead on. Delivery was quick as always. Looking for a mesh jacket with CE protection at a good price, buy this one.

Comment: I really like this jacket. It is perfect for hot summer rides. The mesh is very breathable and allows the air to pass right through. The product is 5 star for great quality and great price.
Great HOT weather jacket
Comment: I commute daily 52 miles round trip in Houston, Texas on a Vstar 1100. Bought this jacket to replace a "brand name" mesh jacket. After 30 days I strongly recommend this jacket. The jacket is comfortable and still looks new. I only ride with an armor jacket and gloves. As long as you are moving its as cool as not having a jacket on at all. I feel cooler even at stop lights as the jacket keeps the direct sun off my arms. Pockets work well. Arm snaps keep armor in place and keeps the sleeves from blowing in the wind. Side belts helps the custom fit feel. The collar is a little tight but no big deal. Delivery was in three days. Jafrums service is great with follow up on order which adds a personel touch.

Detour 8016 Review
Comment: Great jacket. I think it is actually cooler to wear the jacket than just riding in a t-shirt! The armor is a bonus.

Men's Detour Mesh Jacket 8016 Review
Comment: Can't beat this jacket for the price. Just as described. If you want a little room to wear a sweat shirt under the jacket get a size bigger...if you want a snug fit get the size recommended. In 80 to 85 degree weather you very comfortable.

Detour 8016 Mesh Jacket Review
Comment: Most value for the money that I've spent on clothing or accessories!
great jacket, great price
Comment: so i have been looking for a plain mesh jacket for ages, and locally the only ones i can find are HD mesh jackets which have the logos plastered over every section, so i came online and found the detour mesh jackets on jafrum, in all honesty i was shocked by the price, and couldnt belive for $60 i would get a mesh jacket plus CE armour, but i thought i woulg give it a try so bought 1 for me and 1 for a friend, they arrived quickly and i couldnt believe it, the quality is the same as top branded stuff and is about 1/3 the price, and yes there is CE armour in the shoulders and elbows plus a foam insert in the back, the arms a adjustable as well and it plenty roomy, this is my only critism of the jacket, that they are sized larger then i would like so i would recommend getting the size smaller. i wore it the day after i picked it up and its great on the motorway, keeps you cool and protected and stops you from gettin sunburnt arms as well haha i would highly recommend the jacket as a summer essential
Detour 8016 Mesh Jacket Reviews
Comment: Great buy! Great price!
I live in Phoenix and have wore this in 110+ degrees and as long as you are moving it's totally bearable. Not saying it's cool but at least I'm still alive! The only thing that would make it a little better is if the silver colored mesh wrapped around on the back so it less of a solar cooker.
If it works in the crazy heat in Phoenix Az. then I'm sure it will be more then adequate for anywhere you may live.
Comment: I purchased this as a gift for my husband and he loved it! The price was very reasonable so I was a bit concerned with quality initially bit when it arrived, concerned no more. Great fit, look and will be perfect for those nice days. Mesh looks strong and an overall nice jacket. Just need one for me now😊 can't really give five stars since he hasn't used it yet.
Best Answer:I am 1.70 tall / 85 kg, and usually wear EU size 54. This is summer jacket and I do not wear anything except t-shirt underneath. I choose L size and fit me excellent. Jacket is great and I wash it regularly due to pretty much sand in the air (Middle East). After one year still no size of damage. Sorry for metric units, but I'm European.
I'm 5'11", 190lbs and normally wear a large. Some of the comments I read on this jacket said they ran a bit small so ordered an XL and it fits perfectly. However, I normally wear a sweatshirt under it. A large may fit you with just a t-shirt. Hope that helps!
I'm about the same size, couple inches taller. I got the XL, and its a good fit. I've found with the armour in a jacket its a little more binding, but this size works well for me. You can still have room for a long sleeve shirt or jacket liner too.
Being about the same size but 25 lbs heavier, I bought the XXL. Keep in mind the arms and waist are adjustable and can be tightened. I find that this size gives comfort while riding and room to move, squat and get around the bike when not riding.
For less than fifty dollars, the
Detour 8016 is an option for those who want to ride in warmer weather but
want the protection of a CE approved armored jacket.
The 8016 comes in two colors; all black with black hardware or black and silver
with black hardware. The 8016 is constructed out of a lightweight nylon mesh
fabric that provides maximum airflow.
The closure is constructed using a reinforced metal zipper and has a 1 snap Euro
style collar for a low profile look.
The lower portion of the jacket has a zippered hand warmer pocket on either side
for added storage. The interior has a pocket in the liner with a hook and loop
Despite this jacket ultra-light weight, The 8016 still offers some protection.
It has removable CE approved armor in both the elbows and shoulders and a
removable foam back pad. The shell of the jacket also has additional shock
absorbers built right into the material. There is also a universal zippered pant
connector. Connecting your pants to your jacket provides extra protection for
your lower back.
The 8016 is very adjustable. There is a hook and loop belt at the waist that
adjusts to your preference. This keeps the waist of your jacket fitting snuggly
to your body. The sleeves are adjustable to three positions. This is a really
important feature on a mesh jacket. As the air passes through this mesh material
it gets caught on the backside of the arm by the armor. This will cause a very
intense buffeting of the jacket at speed. By snugging up the arms you eliminate
the flapping arm material making the jacket much more comfortable. This feature
also adds to the safety of the jacket by holding the armor in place. The cuffs
of the sleeves have adjustable zippered expanders that make your jacket and
glove easy to get on and off.
