Just thought I'd post some crash test pics. Bike hit gravel pothole on shoulder while cornering, I went flying and tumbled a few times. Bike now has bent front forks, cracked plastic everywhere; rider walked away with a bruise and sore muscles.

Joe Rocket textile jacket
Some damage but jacket can be re-used, elbow & shoulder cups did a great job.
scuffed near collarbone by throat
elbows held up nicely
ripped forearm seam
close to ripping
Icon field armour
Nothing to say on cosmetics since it was under the jacket, my spine feels fine, not sore at all
