Body armor for mountain bike

I think because I’m a newbie and cautious anyway I’m going slower anyway currently so most of my “crashes” are hardly even crashes. Like you said it’s clipping a pedal or something. It’s taking a poor line around a corner or my speed is off or something minor and it’s more like how I would fall on a road bike not getting unclipped. So more tipping over or sometimes even being able to bail and step off the bike before I actually fall.
