The One40s are not much of an upgrade over the 5030s, be careful now, but are minimalistic which is what you seem to like.
I can't go smaller. Wearing a medium tall. I'm 6'2". I don't think a small tall would be near long enough. There just isn't much padding where my hip bones are plus I was wearing the pants too high so the hip was actually below the padding. Once you get posterior to that large side plastic hip guard there's only some foam.
I don't know man the One40's have plastic over the spine, collar bone and sternum. The 5030's have nothing, but shoulder caps really. Definitely not a bulky super protective shoulder pad, but I think alot more protective than the 5030's.
