Not sure what kind will do any better. I am 6'1" and use a Thor protector. I also have cracked ribs right now from hitting the ground! Not sure if any will help you with ribs...mainly designed for roost!

Chest protectors wont save your ribs, I was wearing my Acerbis II for fat guys and broke a few ribs and the get off was not that bad.

As Satch says, its more for roost
