After getting home from the hospital after my accident i had a few weeks ago that i wrote about in here i inspected my protective gear. My ixon textile jacket left arm was shredded and the elbow protector deffinitely saved my elbow from what probably would have required surgery. I would have lost an aweful lot of skin if it wasnt for this jacket. In emergency the ambos faces were cringing when they slid my jeans off expecting to see pain in my face and they were dumbfounded when they couldnt find one single scratch or graze on my entire lower body. They saw the kevlar panels in the draggin jeans and just shook their heads when they remembered just how many times they had seen riders who had come off in seemingly minor accidents who had to endure months of pain waiting for their skin to regrow when a $70 pair of gumtree jeans would have saved them. A big thank you to draggin and ixon for saving my skin and im so thankful i only have to deal with rehab on a broken arm and not skin regrowth. Riding in shorts and t shirt is not cool guys, its stupid.
