Default Riding jackets - how protective are they really?

In the winter I wear a leather armored jacket. It makes me feel pretty protected. In the warmer weather, I wear a Joe Rocket Ballistic textile jacket that is made from a breathable mesh material, and it is also armored.How much are these going to protect me? Does anyone have any stories of a Joe Rocket jacket saving your hide or did it wear through and not do you a lot of good? I know the simple answer is that they are certainly better than nothing - but I want to know how these jackets really hold up in crashes.I also wear joe rocket leather armored gloves, Draggin'Jeans (kevlar), and a full face helmet. I hope this stuff will help me out. ------
