Broken ribs several times, even with body armour on Owen, one set I had was Alpinestars, which had, what I thought was a good back protector, never hurt my back when I crashed in it. But I don't think it saved my ribs much to be honest, still broke the things. I think for them to be comfortable they have to flex, so I don't think they spread the load well hence broken ribs.
p.s. No fun laughing or being constipated either affraid
