Inspecting Armor

A few days ago I wrote about the D30 armor in my Klim gear and how I reached out to them about replacing it or not.  I recently washed my jacket and pants and of course, took all the armor out first.  I placed everything on the table and didn’t give it another thought.  Until today, that is, when I went to replace it all.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at my back armor and thought something looked wrong.  I looked at it more closely and here’s what I found – a big tear!

D30 back pad is damaged!

Of course, this has to be replaced.  This armor did its job in my recent accident and saved me from more serious injuries.  I am still walking and talking today thanks to this gear.  So I was a little surprised to find this, but I’m glad I looked everything over again before wearing it. Replacing it is easy and a mere $50 for this piece.  Worth much more and hopefully I never have to replace it again.

Don’t take chances, check your gear often!  I admit that my previous inspections of my armor had been perhaps a little too quick.  I won’t make that mistake again!  Really glad I found this now, so I have time to replace it before I need to wear the jacket again.  Whew!
