Protective Gear/Body Armor

Hey guys,
i am an intermediate snowboarder who lives in michigan, needless to say the hills (not mountains) suck. I am tired of the 30 runs down the hill. i am venturing off in the park, learning to grind rails and hit jumps. last week i had a minor shoulder separation and the dr said i might be able to get back on my board this season (weather permitting). i have done a lot of research looking at protective gear and body armor. I recently bought a helmet to save my brain and give me added confidence learning tricks and stunts. i dont really care if anybody think i am a sissy for wearing armor. If i am hurt all the time, then i am never going to get any better. Plus if i am able to have confidence without worring about injurys, i am going to try bigger tricks.
These are a few of the products i am looking at. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Those seem reasonable. Don't forget your wrists though. You should also get a decen pair of wrist guards. Wrist fractures are common in snowboarding.

You're not going to war here. Use some wrist guards and a helmet. Everything else is a little overkill if you ask me. You're going to look like Robocop, and probably move the like him, with all that stuff on.

EDIT: On second thought, all that stuff is from the same no-name site. If this is spam and you wasted 30 seconds of my life, I'm going to find you and peel you like an orange.
