We came into the office to this message a while back.
Yea - please feel free to use my name. My bike is a 2007 gsxr 600. And I am an AMA member.
Again thank you for this product I dont think it's getting the attention it deserves at all and if
I can do anything to help you promote them it would be my pleasure.
I gave the 'Armoured Pants' a test ride at the weekend, perfect conditions really, (hot and sticky and not a breath of wind) anyway two pals and I set off to the coast at 7am on Sunday both my pals had leather trousers on and the usual bike gear, they found it particularly uncomfortable where as I was keep comfortable while traveling not cold in the early morning and likewise for the rest of the trip as the temperature climbed. We sat outside at a cafe for the traditional breakfast as you do, my pals were finding it quite uncomfortable in the heat but I was fine I am pleased to say. On the bike I didn't feel my safety was compromised, they were comfortable to wear, the snug fit does keep the armour in place so I was really chuffed.
In June 2012 I hit a deer doing 65mph in Florida. My Bohn Armor pants saved my lower body. The Trauma Center Doc at the University of Florida Shands Medical Center walked around holding up my Bohn Armor to show all the Docs, Nurses & EMS Techs why I was not hurt any worse on my lower body. Your advertisements are 100% TRUE!!
This customer report was received in February 2014 from a Harley Davidson riding customer, Lou O from Hollywood, FL.
"I was skeptical when I placed my order.
I have been riding for 37 years so I'm not a newcomer.
I've been using your mesh Armor and not only is it the best but I wish I had your product years ago.
I'm a believer.
The best LOU.
PS This is a pictures of me taken next to my Sportster in Hollywood Florida. Yes the Armor pants are under my Carhartts. The mesh armor is cool to wear and gives a feeling of protection".
hi! i am happy
to report my bohn armored pants helped save my butt in a crash this past
weekend, Thanks, great product consider this a testimonial to their
effectiveness....30 ft slide at 40mph after a deer collision and i walked
away from it.
I just want to say thank you for a great product. I work in the motorcycle industry and I see a lot of safety gear. Your armored pants are what I choose to wear under my off-road gear for dirt track schools. I've also crashed with them (under dirtbike gear) on a supermoto course and walked away with no ill effects.
I am a 5'10" curvy female and I love the way they fit!
my armor pants for over a year. All I can say is they are comfortable; I
can go to restaurants, come home mow the grass, watch tv, and could
probably sleep in them. Makes cold days a little warmer. I've never had a
get off, but the testimonials assure me I'm that much more protected.
Just wanted to let you know that I have been wearing your Bohn Adventure Pants all over SoCal and put over 450 miles on a bike with them on. They are very comfortable, I forget I even have them on, fit great, and it's great knowing I have the protection under my jeans. Thanks so much.
Bohn Armor - Second
year (female) newbie here. . .I bought the pants mesh with armor. Their
chart size is pretty accurate and ordered for my height (4'11") Although,
I had to buy a new pair of jeans, the next size up and more room in the
thigh to accommodate the armor around the hips and tail bone. Hubby says
that I do look a bit more curvy, but that's a good thing since I don't
have much of an hour-glass figure anyway. :wink:
Overall the product works well. I ride a Yamaha 250cc and it took a while
to get use to the tail bone pad. It's a little cumbersome when taking a
nature break, but that doesn't deter me from using them. I like the peace
of mind of having extra armor and I can't remember when a bug last hit me
on the shin or knee. The last test is to wear them in the upcoming Summer
in commuter traffic.

Message: I Received my Adventure Pants and have been wearing them for a
week now. They are absolutely great. I commute 200 miles round trip to
work everyday. It is great to be able to wear the
attire I need for work and yet still be protected. As you know in
Mississippi it get hot. Lately we have recorded record highs with
high humidity. I was so impressed with the pants that Yesterday I ordered
the AirTex Shirt. I am sure it will make the ride a lot cooler compared to
my armored jacket.

Message: June 13,2009 I hit a deer with my 2000 Daytona 955i. That
is all I remember for the next 2 weeks. When I became aware I found I had
a severely broken R wrist and a loss of 2 feet of my intestines. I was
wearing Bohn armor pants and shirt with full armor and the best helmet I
can buy. The doctors all said if I would have had more broken bones or
lots of road rash or other grievous injury I
probably would not be here today. It was your armor along with my helmet
and the grace of God that kept me alive that day. I am a true disciple of
ATGATT now, it saved my life. It was and still is a long recovery but I am
alive and doing well. I hope that perhaps someone in your R&D department
is working on some type of protection for the belly area. According to all
statistics involving motorcycle wrecks That area of the anatomy is injured
in a high percentage of crashes. The bad news is the Bohn gear gave it's
life for me, so now before spring arrives here in Western Pa. I need to
save enough to once again get the best protective gear in the world.
Thank you so much. If you need a better testimony send me an
e-mail and I would be glad to do that for your company.

i just wanted to say thank you. i received my pants and they fit great. i
was so worried i wasn't going to find anything, my hips are sorta wide. so
i was having trouble finding anything to fit, that wasn't dragging at my
ankles. now i'm protected again.
Message: Just wanted to thank
Bohn-Armor for the protection your pants provided. Both my wife and I were
wearing your pants (along with head, torso, feet and hand protection) when
a deer jumped into
our path at 75 mph (interstate driving). The impact from the deer broke a
few of our bones but the Bohn-Armor pants clearly saved our bones from
impact and our skin from the 150' asphalt slide that followed. Other than
a little road rash on the side of one knee, the Bohn-Armor clearly saved
us from significant damage. Both the medical staff and law enforcement
couldn't thank us enough for the gear we were wearing. Without it, they
assured us the coroner rather than the ambulance would have transported us
from the scene.
It may be a while before we ride again (bike was totaled) but if and
when we do, we'll have our new Bohn Armor protecting us.
Hi, I bought your airtex
armored shirt and pants at the international motorcycle show last December
in Long Beach, CA. A few weeks ago, the weather was perfect for riding,
even a little hot, the type of day that i would normally ride with just an
tank top, and definitely no jacket. I did however decide to use the airtex
shirt for the first time by itself without a jacket, since it is light and
breezy. At some portion of my commute that day, two vehicles, a very bad
road and maybe a little of my own arrogance got the better of me. Despite
the hard collision with the asphalt and my ego, I walked away with just a
couple of scrapes and bruises. Witnesses were surprised I had not broken
my shoulder, arm and a number of other bones.
Anyway, I thought you'd like to know that your product has made a
believer out of me and the select few who saw my kamikaze flight through
the air. I can only imagine ;the numerous injuries that I luckily avoided
by wearing the armor.
Thanks, keep up the good work and ride safe.

Subject: Me and my friends don't ride without it.
I was out for a leisurely Sunday ride on my 2005 Suzuki GSX-R 1000.
Anybody who knows what that is, already understands that "leisurely" means
anything below 100. I was getting on the New Jersey Turnpike on what was
(unbeknownst to me) a decreasing radius turn littered with gravel and
glass. My two-day-old steering damper was set up too light causing the
steering to shake under braking. This left me unable to bleed off speed
for the decreasing radius. Then I realized the turn was also littered with
glass and gravel. That secondary shock caused a temporary target fixation,
which I eventually overcame and got the bike back on course.
Unfortunately, the lean angle required to do so was too much for the
gravel and glass. Me and the bike went down at about 50 mph on the rocks
and glass. It was as if I was still riding the bike but both of us were
laying on our left sides. I slid for about 40 feet on my side. The
Adventure Pants saved my knees and hips which were both sliding directly
under the weight of the bike. The knee-pad slid to the side and luckily
was directly between the side of my knee and the pavement. This left the
front of my knee somewhat exposed but I got away from such a nasty
accident with a shallow scrape on my knee only about the size of a
quarter. As a result of my wearing the pants (and other protection) I was
at work bright and early Monday morning, a bit stiff but essentially
I see these sport bike riders in shorts and T-Shirts and realize they
are truly retarded. Obviously, many of them have not yet gone down before.
Unfortunately, for many, I'm sure it's a lesson learned too late. Its just
not worth the possible loss of your knees and hips and other parts or the
painful recovery when you can simply purchase protection to wear under
your clothes from Action Station.

This armored garment is a very satisfying product. Fits really well, cool
under jeans, and gives me an additional sense of security. Great product.
I will recommend this product to all of my riding friends.
Thank you for making a terrific product. I
crashed at 70mph last weekend and I was barely injured. Your knee
pads worked perfectly to cushion the impact. I have some swelling
and road rash but not a single fracture. Thank you most sincerely.
Yesterday, while cruising the twisties, I cooked a corner and layed the
bike down. I had on the Cool Air pants with denim kevlars over. All I have
is slight bruise on my thigh and a slight laceration on my shin thanks to
your padded thigh material and shin armor. Great comfortable summer
product that does the job.
I was wearing you European armor shirt (zip up front) when I was involved
in an accident. I was thrown off my bike and landed on my left shoulder. I
flipped a few times and came to rest on my butt. Upon examination, Your
armor did its Job! I sustained a fractured left rib, but not other
injuries thanks to your Bohn armor pants with armor in hips and knees.
I recently purchased your Cool-Air jacket. Just a few weeks ago I went
down on my Harley Ultra. The bike was all but totaled. Even with a full
rain suit on, I somehow ended up with gravel in my jean pockets. To this
day I don't know how that could have happened! Anyway, thanks to a helmet
and your jacket the only injury I ustained, even felt, was what I think
was a handle bar in the abdomen. Shoulders, elbows, back - didn't feel a
just tested out your adventure pants on monday, april 21st. no, this
wasn't intentional, due to a clutch malfunction under hard acceleration at
approx. 65 mph my rear tire broke loose sending me sliding 100ft down the
highway. managed to walk away with some road rash, but not much. just
wanted to say thanks and let your know ill be ordering a new pair in a few
weeks (ems cut them off).
I recently purchased your Bohn Jacket in time for Americade .Well it
really works! While on a ride in the Adirondacks I came around a ninety
degree turn only to find the road littered with gravel. When I adjusted my
line to avoid it, I went off the road into sand for about 100 feet and
then into a gulley about four feet deep. I walked away without a scratch,
the bike was not so lucky. I just wanted to say thank you and let you know
that your product saved me a lot of pain
I just wanted to say that your Blue and White Airtex armored shirt
recently saved me, my elbow and my shoulder from serious injury. I hit an
oil patch the other day and after losing all control I fell off the back
of the bike. After tumbling and rolling I was able to stand up and take my
Airtex shirt off. I felt a soreness in my left elbow and shoulder and upon
examining the shirt I saw that the elbow/shoulder padding had absorbed a
great deal of the collision. I am sure that if I hadn't been wearing the
shirt I would be in the hospital with broken bones or worse. Though, I
would recommend that the rider wear a light jacket or fleece over the
shirt to avoid some of the otherwise minor scrapes and abrasions. It is
definitely a good product.
I recently purchased 2 body shirts from you and we really like them a lot.
Unfortunately my husband met with an RV on our motorcycle vacation and had
his body shirt cut off him by the medics. Is it possible to purchase an
XXL shirt without the armor? By the way, we were really lucky to escape
with a few broken bones that are now on their way to mending. We really
believe the armor had a lot to do with our escape and were glad we were
wearing it at the time. Peter suffered a broken clavicle, ribs and road
rash. His jeans belt had road rash on the front side and back from
spinning around on the road. We believe the body armor protected his back
and arms and I am sure his shoulder would have been much worse without the
protection. Neither of us will be riding without the protection in future.
It scares me to think of the youngsters in Florida that only wear shorts
The pants and shirt arrived this morning. I tried on everything and it
and feels great. The armor is perfect for wearing under my uniform. Now I
don't have to wear my leathers to work. I can just put these on under my
BDU's (Battle Dress Uniform) and still be within regulations...the Air
is picky about those things. I'm going to recommend you guys to a couple
my fellow riders. Again thank you for the great product and i'm sorry for
the delivery impatience.
JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR A GREAT PRODUCT! I WEAR YOUR PANTS AND
CRUSADER SHIRT WHEN RACING FLATTRACK, AND THEY LITERALLY SAVED ME TWO
WEEKS AGO. I HAD A BAD "HIGH-SIDE" DISMOUNT WHICH SENT ME TUMBLING
HEAD-OVER-HEELS 6 TIMES ACROSS THE HARD-PACKED CLAY TRACK. I ESCAPED WITH
A BRUISED TOE, BROKEN FINGER, TORN WRIST LIGAMENTS, AND A COUPLE OF
CRACKED RIBS. IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR YOUR ARMOR, THERE ISN'T A DOUBT IN MY
MIND THAT I WOULD HAVE SUFFERED MUCH MORE SEVERE INJURIES, AND QUITE
PROBABLY STILL BE HOSPITALIZED TODAY.
To whom it may concern, I just bit it at a traffic light earlier today
when my front tire tucked under when I tried coming to a stop on a large
spill of the cristals the state highway puts into its paint to make it
reflect at night on the road. I was wearing your spandex type pants with
padding underneath my jeans. The two things which hit the pavement first
was my right knee and my right shoulder. My head never hit the pavement.
If it wasn't for the knee and hip pads in your armor who knows what
could've happened. I walked away with a small strawberry on my knee and
nothing else. It's ironic, because I just finished thanking the two guys
at the Bohn tent at Laguna Seca for making such a comfortable product.
Thank you to all the men and women at the factory for making a product I
can say positively prevented worse damage to my knee and hip area. Keep up
the great work.
