Light Armours are to (Heavy) Armours what Hats are to Helms–they provide lower Physical Defence, but are viable for all jobs. Just like Hats, many Light Armours provide extra incentives besides the defence boosts, such as boosts to other key stats. So don’t dismiss them straightaway after seeing their weaker defences!
