Default Full body armor

Hello!

I am recovering from multiple spine fractures and want to protect myself much better next season. So, I would like to know, what do you think about this protective gear:

Forcefield Extreme Harness Adventure | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control - full upper body armor - 335$.

Flexmeter Double Sided Wrist Guards - wrist guards - 70$

impact short, butt pad, padded shorts, crash pad - impact shorts - 75$
or maybe: Forcefield Action Shorts | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control ~90 (in UK)

Forcefield Strap On Protector Leg | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control - leg and shin guards - 70$

Will it help me to reduce pain after a bad landing (small to medium kickers) or slipping on rail? Or should I buy something in better quality? Maybe it's not a secret, what protective gear professional snowboarders are using? And yes, I already have a helmet. Actually, I have other protective gear (except full body armor), but want to upgrade for better quality.

Thank you for professional advices.

Have fun and be safe on slopes!
