Hmmm.... one of Hilde's squires (Stephan, inactive) also wears a device 
like this, and is pretty happy with its protection.

As far as a blow from the top, sure a FREAK shot would bruise him, but 
unless a freak shot with a broken tip came in (i.e. unpadded rattan) it 
probably wouldn't do any permanent damage.... :)

btw, I think it looks kinda cool too....
