7 months ago I was hit by a carload of texting teenagers. Totaled my bike and damn near killed me. I can guaran-damn-tee you I'm not deluded about adequate crash protection. Good quality textile gear will do exactly what's needed in the event of a crash, regardless of what Motoport tells you.
What people need to remember is that every crash is different, and sometimes it doesn't make a bit of difference what you're wearing. I don't plan on crashing, and I really couldn't care less whether or not my gear survives a crash. I'm far more interested in surviving with as little damage to my body as possible.
