Ever since reading about the Crash Pad products in the official review section, I've been itching to try out some of the products mentioned. Since snowboarding season is coming up, I finally went ahead and ordered the 6100 jacket ($195) and the 2500 short ($80). To clarify, the main purpose of these two pieces of gear will be used while snowboarding as opposed to moto riding (even though I think it'd work better worn under leather jacket & pants).
I think ShanMan's review is pretty spot on. I'll add some of my 1st impression right now and come back next week for a more thorough review after my snowboarding trip this weekend.
-not restrictive (the jacket & pant is very thin so it doesn't restrict my movements at all)
-seems to work great if worn under motorcycle jackets & pants (for both leather & textile)
-seems to make of the material that would absorb sweats
-Easy to put on and off
-Very thin paddings (this would be ok as a complement to riding gears but I have no confidence on how much protection it'd provide me if worn under normal clothing)
-The padding seems to be made of very thin and cheapy foam (I don't know how much impact protection it'd provide)
-Contrarary to some of the site's claim about the gear's abrasion resistant material, I don't think they'd last very long base on how thin the materials are)
-No return policy (you're outta luck if you don't like it)
Once again, this is only a first glance impression of the gears. I purchased these two pieces of gears mainly for snowboarding purpose and I must say that I am very disappointed with the level of impact protection it seems to provide. Otherwise, I think it'd work nice as additional secondary protection for moto riding. I'll be providing more insight & pictures after my first snowboarding trip this weekend.
