Detour Mesh Jacket

Pretty low cost padded/armored jacket. I've never heard of them - just wondering if anyone else has.

I'm also not familiar with them. Probably similar quality to Cycle Gear's BiLT brand, which is usually Made in China and a cointoss on quality.

It's definitely hard to find a good summer jacket that is the right balance of airflow and protection. I ended up getting some Heat Out undergear to wear under my leather jacket and it helps a bit.
