The Plastic MX style protectors are really only good for roost protection. There are some that say impact protection, but most only cover the sholders. Walt was wearing one when he got hit by the car at the big bike enduro, he broke a bunch of ribs, punctured a lung and broke his elbow.
I think if he had a pressure suit or body armor, his injurys would not have been as severe. He still would of been hurt, but not as bad.
Here's an example of good protection, there are many brands and price levels for this type of protection.
