Protective clothing study

Below is a link to a comprehensive Australian study of motorcycle protective clothing and associated injury reduction. I recommend that you read it and I'm sure that different aspects will have significance for different riders.

Overall it's reinforced my belief in "All the gear all of the time" (ATGATT) and that jackets with armor were genuinely helpful at reducing injury (hardly a surprise but nice to see some science supporting the contention)  The amount of protective clothing that 'failed' in some way is cause for concern.
READ THIS for all of the detail.

Ride safe!
