In the future when MO tests a suit or other protective gear, the last test should be the "dummy" test. This would be where a department store mannequin, clad in the gear to be tested, would be thrown out of the back of the MO van while said van was going 75mph down the Santa Monica freeway. After being run over by two or three cars and eventally skidding to a stop against a dead possum in the breakdown lane, the damage could be evaulated and reported back to your loyal readers.
Or I suppose you could just rig up a belt sander based abrasion test...
I'm quickly coming to love reading your articles, from "The Shame Among Us" to your gera reviews, your experience in journalism, the readily apparent objectivity coupled with integrity and ethics will keep me renewing motorcycle.com for quite some time. Please keep writing. I'm definitely looking forward to checking out this piece of gear.
