Roadcrafter Classic One Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on October 5, 2009):
On 10/3/09, I was waiting to make a left hand turn when a truck rearended me at 35mph. The impact threw me about 40', a combination of flying, tumbling and skidding. The Roadcrafter's tough hide protected me throughout, I was able to walk away from the incident with little more than a bruised hand and some very sore muscles. I fully believe the armor in the roadcrafter saved my joints from injury, as there is no way I tumbled and slid as far as I did without hitting something on the pavement. In the ambulance and at the ER, the design of the suit received praise from medical personnel who appreciated its easy off design. Though the ambulance crew did end up cutting one arm for access to start an IV and attach BP cuff, the full zipper allowed them to perform a thorough examination for injuries before removing the suit.
When it comes time to replace the suit, the only question is what color the ballistics on the Roadcrafter will be.
