Bohn Body Armor

Am enjoying wearing Bohn body armor pants under Carhart work pants for warm weather riding. Very comfortable and hopefully protective. The Bohn pants are made of very thin material with a lot of pieces stitched together and I am wondering how well they will hold up. Anyone have experience with this matter?

perhaps the hokey pokey is really what it's all about

Added praise

I recently bought a pair (?) of bohn armor pants. Very comfortable and protective. I haven't ridden enough miles (1000) to talk about wear and tear other than they still look brand new.

I'm a believer!

I've used these for a couple of riding seasons, great for use with riding jeans with kevlar. I like the fact that the pads stay on your knees where they belong. hope I never have to test them out!

It holds up well. Mine is almost 3 years old. I low sided 2 years ago wearing it a draggin' jeans doing about 40 mph. The pants held but a fair amount od denim was burned to the Kevlar. The armor held up as well , didn't shift and I didn't have any bruising. The only injury was a jammed wrist

This is excellent. I was wondering about a crash test. Sorry you have had the experience but I am thankful for the advice.
