you Bounce when you hit, never got hurt by the brain bucket, have broken other stuff, broke a leg once. a Snell 95 helmet and a A-100 race jacket, the jacket will roll you over face up, so if you get K.O.ed on the way out, you will still be able to breath till you come too, or someone comes and gets ya, don't count on it.
