…. But is it worth to wear chest protection then? How many of you do?. …

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an adult w/ chest protection (not saying some don’t, though).  I believe chest protection is often mandated for young drivers, since they are more vulnerable to cardiac issues from blows to the chest (e.g., commotio cordis).
