Like all protection it is not a cure, just a helping hand...

It was probably my scariest day on a snow board, and i was riding an SBX course and got way out of shape over a big whoop and landed face down... Looking back it was funny, but at the time it really hurt...

[QUOTEInterested to hear that the long sleeve is more comfortable. Is it hotter in warm weather? I'd rather be warm than cold of course.QUOTE]

Can't say I noticed a big difference in warmth between the two. The covering of your torso and shoulders is the same so I don't think the extra sleeve length and padding makes a big difference. But the elbow and forearm pads were really comfortable and made the whole piece seem complete on your upper body - full protection.
BTW, I wear flexmeter single-sided wrist guards with this set up as well. As I said, full protection.
