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.
Ahh so you just wore them wrong, no worries; you aren't the only one haha a lot of people actually pull them up all the way instead of having them sit on their hips.
See that's the thing, having plastic inserts doesn't make the One40 THAT much better. An improvement? Definitely. Hope they work out with you
