Nice jacket. I'm a big guy with HGP (High Ground Pressure), with a Done Lap (48" waist). Please consider I haven't ridden in the jacket yet. If I keep my pants pulled up my Done Lap won't show. I'm sure on the bike the Done Lap won't show, but I'm concerned about the jacket being bulky while riding. But for safety's sake I'm going to wear it regardless. The down side is that there's no snap option to connect pants. I don't have to worry about that because they don't make pants to accommodate Done Lap. Lightweight for such large jacket that came in a 8 x8 x 8 box with room to spare.

Would be a nice jacket for the price were it not so short in the torso, atleast 3 or 4 inches shorter than my other regular length jackets. I worry about hitting bugs at belly button level.
cons: the jacket does come with the liner. Pros: Comfortable, double pads protection, really fresh for warm weathers. Great experience shopping with this company, good product, and better yet, great price. I do recommend this to friend
Excellent jacket . The snaps on the sleeves keep the cold/wind from creeping up your arms. Just make sure the temperature outside is proper for this jacket
Much better quality than I was expecting for the price. I have used it in 95 degree heat and was very comfortable. I did not even break a sweat. I highly recommend.
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. Now it costs $20 less than when I bought it!
Excellent choice for hot weather riding protection. I am a big guy and wish it came in a 4XT. A valuable asset at a value price.
Good summer jacket was here super fast [onedayearly] fit's good and all for 50.00
Does what it advertises.
The price is right and looks great. Its comfortable and def fits the Florida weather.
Great jacket for the price. Am really happy with the purchase!
Great jacket. Light for summer riding and has armor as well. Just wear a sweatshirt under it for cold weather. Exactly what I was looking for.
Very breathable jacket. Can't wait to ride with it in the summer. Do not ride in the cold because you will freeze. Lol. Great jacket overall. Like the fact that the jacket is not populated with a big logo. Stealthy.
Jacket is outstanding
I was immediately impressed with fit & finish of the jacket. I wanted a jacket with some armor for summer use. This vented jacket fits the bill. I have had several favorable comments. Do pay attention to the sizing chart. The jacket runs small. I am XL and ordered 2XL. Fits perfectly. Cannot yet attest to durability.
Wonderful summer jacket. Been searching for something like this for a while now. Good fit, nice protection and excellent value.
Its great for everyday use...for that price its a bargain
Shipping to Australia takes a little time, but well worth the wait. The jacket fits well in all the right places, It gives good protection and is cool for summer riding 40c / 100f plus degrees. I love it. I would go a size up next time to allow a little more air space near my body. The price is great and the quality and workmanship are first class. Well done Jafrum. I will be back again.Bernie Connellan.
Great value! The jacket fit fine, I'm between a medium and small. I have some large jackets that fit fine. I bought the medium and it was just fine. The back padding does seem a bit thin compared to other's, don't expect it to be a major issue. The snaps on the sleeves are a definite plus to tailor the fit and secure the protection. This will be a great jacket for warm weather riding.
I needed a mesh jacket with armor to wear during the summer. I looked at brand names but decided to try this first. I cannot say enough about this thing. It's well made, fits perfectly, and allows air to flow like nobody's business. Even sitting at lights on the bike in 95 degree weather is comfortable. Buy the 8016 with confidence. No joke - this is the best money I've ever spent on a lightweight riding jacket. Don't stop selling it; I might need another one at some point.
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 style fastener.
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.
