I hit a guard rail and my right leg was between the bike and immovable object. My leg lost. Spiral fracture of the tib/fib. Leg was shaped like an S. No pants will prevent that, it was a crushing blow. The pants prevented a compound fracture. 100% of the road rash was prevented. The jeans provided all the protection possible and were in great shape before the paramedics cut them off. They even had to get different scissors to cut through the pants, one layer at a time. I am reordering the pants. The only thing I would change is make the front pockets a little deeper, they are a little too small. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the quality of these pants. All of the medical staff at the hospital thanks you, my whole family thanks you. I was on my feet the day after the accident, surgery the same day. That would not have happened without the protection your jeans provided. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
