Those pictures and ratings were really cool.

Somebody on non-CS forum suggested that a wiggle test might have lead to some of these pieces falling out. I reckon I agree. A foot-kick test might have done the same.

I guess the other thing is, you are asked to rate the protection (bomber etc) whereas the results are how much load they each took which does not directly answer the question of whether they were good pro. Not entirely sure how you could do, but assuming a participant wants to know whether they have a crap eye for gear placements or should just harden up, it would be worth coming up with an agreed rating for the piece (ie bomber etc) from those who set it and/or an aggregate result from the people particpating in rating them.

Separately, it would also be cool to see the ratings vs the failure load of each of those pieces that breaks just to see how they do (for those pieces that actually have the rating still onj them).
