I have been using the Arborwear Canvas Pants for a lot of hot-weather riding and for short, local runs, for several years. I find that the TF3 knee pads (and the shoulder and elbow pads on the Roadcrafter) to be as important as the Kevlar abrasion materials. In most of my serious wrecks, I found the impact protection of my knees and ankles to be more important than skidding along the pavement. My right knee is still operating thanks to a TF3 pad in my Roadcrafter in '91!
