One thought I have is that even if the outer material is compromised it seems that the padding underneath would also have to be compromised before one would have skin injuries. Of course the garment would need to be replaced but unless you have spent the big bucks or plan on crashing often it should not be a problem. In my crash at ~40mph, this was the exact outcome, the material was destroyed but pads underneath meant no skin damage except in the knee where the pads/abrasion resistant rode too low.
