Crash Tested Gear (Cycle Gear Jeans + Fulmer Jacket)

Recommended Posts

OK it's not like I wanted to test this stuff, but I can say if you choose not to wear gear, well good luck. I low sided today and slid probably 30-40 feet mostly on my back and chest, somehow momentum flipped me from my back to my chest.
 
I wear a pair of Cycle Gear Ironworks Jeans and a Fulmer mesh jacket. I wear gloves and boots also. All of my gear did exactly what it was designed to do. My jeans have a rip right below my right knee pad and my jacket has some tears in my right elbow pad and on the chest.
 
As I inspected my gear I can't imagine how much road rash I would have had in my knee, butt, back, chest, and elbow.
 
GEAR WORKS, PLEASE WEAR IT

Yeah I have a few, the gear really held up well, just a hole below the knee pad on the right side, tears on my elbow pads, and a couple holes in the front of the jacket
