Any one used demon shield vest?
DS 5100 Shield Vest

I hurt my ribs last two seasons and thinking about doing something about it. Two years ago I caught an edge and slammed backward on to a sticking root. Last winter I rode too fast over a bump flu into air head first and finally landed on my forearm next to my ribs. Both of those didn't stop hurting for couple months.

I'm in between that shield vest and Flex Force PRO, but I'm not sure which one has better rib protection and if I really need arm guards of the flex force. Also I think I like the vertical rib protectors on shield vest better than the horizontal ones on flex force. Both would work fine for puncture type protection, but I'd think that vertical pads would spread the hit force on more ribs, right?
