Sorry to hear that, I don't think any jacket will protect you from a direct impact, a good helmet can obviously save your life, I seem to ride in the Bullit Covec jeans all the time they are so comfy, sometimes pull a set of waterproofs over them if it's cold or showery, I have leather and textile pants but never really seem to use them.

the Klim jacket with its D30 armour didn’t stop me getting a badly broken collarbone, 6 broken ribs and a punctured lung.
Your off sounds extremely similar to one I had 3 years ago, only I was wearing an airbag vest (Helite Turtle) at the time. In my case, I still got the broken collar bone (from landing on my shoulder I suspect, though I have no memory of the impact), but my remaining injuries were confined to some bruised ribs.   So I happily put up with the ribbing and rolling eyes from 'cooler' riders eying up my airbag kit at coffee stops...
