I crashed a couple weeks ago while wearing my work clothes, I haven't been wearing my riding pants to work but my Shorts under my work pants. I came out alright. Gloves and left elbow of my jacket are a little fubar. I had a pretty nasty gash on my inner right leg, still not sure what got ahold of it, but the gash started just below the shorts. I don't see how it would have helped prevent that, but maybe? Or maybe whatever cut me didn't get ahold of me until that far down on my leg, I dunno lol. But... No rash on my *** or thigh or anything like that.

As for soreness, I can say with almost 100% certainty that it didn't help at all :P I woke up the next morning stiff in all the wrong places and sore! I was more sore in this crash than times I've crashed on dirt going 3x as fast.

I guess my point, somewhere in that mess, was that I'll be wearing them again. :P

T Pro is great for impact absorption but really doesn't have much abrasion resistance. They are really designed to be used under leathers or other riding gear. Then again,something is always better than nothing. If you have any more questions about it,I am a dealer for T Pro. Give me a call or Email at the link under my sig.
