Glad he was able to walk away. Looks like a long slide, so the textile still did better than a long-sleeved shirt or nothing; he'd still be picking concrete and blacktop out of it!

it doesn't look like the frame slider did a good job. I might be wrong.

Tecnics wreck good, Ive seen someone wreck at 170 and all it did was rip the stitching and scuff it to all .. all the damage to him was carpet burn from the inside of the jacket

The guy that went down was actually riding with us all night nor does he post on here, well at least hadnt as of yesterday. He joined up with us on memorial and tagged along he was heading downtown to a friends place or something. Dont know how long he had been riding or anything and wasnt going real fast just riding too close to the curb and hit the off set drainage ditch and then went down. The jacket saved his hide, but he did have some rash on his forarm, def would have been fine in good leathers but the jacket did do its job...........but im sticking with leather dont care how hot it gets!

it did its job. once you go down in any textile jacket you will be buying a new one. it took me a while to get full leathers, but now that i have them i love them.
