The Detour 8012 is a premium buffalo leather armored jacket with a lot of
features for a little over one hundred dollars.
The 8012 has silver hardware and the zippers have leather pull tabs that make
them easier to operate while wearing gloves.
This jacket has black reflective piping that is nearly hidden during the day but
emits a nearly two inch wide halo when light hits it at night. The neckline has
a euro style collar. If you don't want to snap the collar, the 8012 has an
additional snap that keeps the flap out of the way. This prevents the flap from
slapping you around while you ride.
The front has two zippered vents on either side of the waist to allow air to
flow into the jacket and keep you cool. There are also two zippered hand warmer
pockets. On the sides, at the waist, there are straps that adjust attach using
hook and loop as well as a stretch panel. These straps offer extra room for
bellies and backsides and the extra room helps keep the jacket from pushing up
into the chin of riders on bikes with more compact riding positions. While we
are on the side, you can see that the sleeve has an expandable zippered cuff
with a gusset. This expandability makes your jacket and gloves easy to get on
and off and the gusset makes the zipper waterproof.
Moving onto the back, there are two zippered vents, one on each shoulder blade
as well as more reflective piping. Other than these vents and piping, the back
is kept very simple. This makes this jacket perfect for event or club patchwork.
The interior has a full-sleeve thermal liner that can be easily removed. 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. The liner then pulls right out.
The shoulders and elbows of the 8003 have CE approved armor that works well with
the lines of the jacket and can't be easily seen from the outside. There is also
a spine pad in the back that offers a little bit of added protection. To remove
the armor you unfasten the desired armor pocket and pull out the pad. Remember
to remove these pads carefully to avoid tearing the lightweight armor pocket.
