Alligator Tested – Rider Survives

I purchased the Armored Adventure Pants to compliment the level of protection I was wearing in my CE approved textile riding jacket.

The Bohn pants fit great under my jeans as well as mesh riding pants and offer an excellent level of safety for my legs. I recently tested the lower leg (knee and shin) guards when I encountered a live alligator crossing the middle of the road. I swerved right to avoid the head and as he flipped around his tail caught me in the lower left leg.

Fortunately, I stayed on the bike and was able to ride it out. After regaining my breath well up the road, I inspected my jeans (small gash) and noted that the Bohn Armor looked like new!

Thanks for making a great product!
