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!
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!
