Yes, the short sleeve version could be a little difficult getting off (not on), while the long sleeve version was actually easier because of the long sleeves. Plus the added protection and better comfort IMO.
Interested to hear that the long sleeve is more comfortable. Is it hotter in warm weather? I'd rather be warm than cold of course.

I've found that there is a relatively simple technique to getting it off. I pull one sleeve over my elbow, and then riggle my arm out. I then do the same for the other sleeve. Lastly, I tug the shirt from the neck up over my head and slide out. I never have any problems.

I hit really really hard, and would probably of been in hospital for months had i not been wearing it, and compared to my back protector which offers NO protection as all to ribs, it makes sense...!!!

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...

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.
