Corazzo jacket?

I'm coming over from scooters to a bonnie. I currently ride with a Corazzo Tempeste jacket. It's cordura, waterproof, with CE rated elbow and shoulder armor and double-density foam back pad. Have never had a spill in it, fortunately, but want to know if people think it's up to snuff, protection-wise?
The way I see it, I'm not going to be riding significantly faster on my bike than I would on a scooter most of the time. I've thought about upgrading to leather, but like the waterproof aspect of the textlie, since I live in Oregon. The bonnie is going to be used the same way I currently use my Vespa - 95% commuting, with occasional weekend joyrides. Anyone have any experience with Corazzo's equipment in a spill?

Rode scoots for years and rode with my Corazzo 5.0 through summers and winters. I had added better armor, but if you bought yours in the last few years it probably came with better armor. I do suggest getting a proper back insert though. I went with the Corazzo because it was the scooter thing to do. I really liked it, but now I have improper summer and a proper winter jacket too, but both are textile. I use the Corazzo for mid temp season now. It is a great jacket and has some nice features, as for in a spill I'd trust it any day, it's some really durable cordura, something like 1000. If you like it and it's waterproof you are more likely to wear it. If you want someone to say get a new jacket, get one. New stuff is fun.
