Well if your willing to roll the dice, I would take them. If you put them in your jacket I think you will have less of a chance of hurting yourself in any way. I think the plastic would break quickly under pressure and you would not be injured.
I CERTAINLY DIDN'T NOTICE EITHER OF THE CROWBARS BREAKING WHEN I FELL. IT WAS ONLY LATER THAT I DISCOVERED THE DAMAGE.
