Here are some photos of my Tin Cloth Field Jacket and Tin Cloth pants that saved me from a recent motorcycle crash. I picked myself up relatively unscathed after sliding to a stop from 60mph while attempting to avoid a group of deer in the road, only about a half mile from my house. It was night, so I shouldn’t have been pushing it the way I was, but at least I had this suit on. Thank you for making such a great product. I was also wearing a pair of lined goatskin gloves, which blew off my hands and are still lost on the mountain somewhere. So, could I send these in for repair? Probably should think about getting double reinforced knees this time.
Thanks for everything and keep doing what you guys are doing,
