Nick,

 

I probably won’t contribute a lot, as others have already provided so many details, but I’ll add my bottom line on the rib vest, as I’ve gone through the injury twice:

– rib vest must be stiff, light vests don’t do the job IMO

– rib vest must be the right size (cannot be too large – that’s what got me the 2nd time).

– put the vest and the suit on, and then measure the seat, should be tight, should not move in the seat at all.
