Question Rib protector

Okay just looking for some input during the off season. I want to get my boardslides down and being one of the few of us on
here with "Gummers Syndrome" I need to try to protect myself as much as possible.

Any thoughts here on good gear or possible good/bad of items/similar I have pictured.

1st. Paintball vest. Looks nice fitting and not bulky chest, back and ribs. Not sure I need to worry about chest but never done them so don't know.

2nd. Moto-X gear. Just ribs and would do a good job and doesn't look to bulky

3rd, again Moto-X gear and even less bulky

All similarly priced. Do I want back protection? Is rib protection even needed (I worry slipping out and landing on ribs)

Well any input or thoughts always welcome.
