I'll readily admit every drop/slide/stop is different but i'll still - against my better judgement - add my $.02. Your gear (Wandering_Larry) looks exactly like some Triumph branded gear I tried. a 20 mph low side on damp asphalt shredded the gear. In contrast: a 60 mph 'get off,' (again a low side) on asphalt/gravel/stop in my Aerostich Roadcrafter revealed no appreciable shredding of the outer shell. In fact, the 2003 Model was checked in Duluth found in perfect repair and is still on the road today. My newer Aerostich Darien has only suffered 'stop 'n' drops,' with no sliding so can't compare the survivability of the suit in anecdotal terms. Heavy though, for off asphalt riding. Too heavy, I'm guessing for the gnarly, single track stuff. Colour/color me a fan of the 'Stich.
