If you walk and trip, what do you do? Extend hands and feet. So from that experience, gloves and boots. Chest and back protectors do a huge amount, but layer your protection to your riding. I like a good reputable helmet, gloves, and boots, and go from there. On the track I choose much more gear, but that's me.
