I don't see the point of carrying body armor or a kevlar helmet. I can see owning one if you plan to bug in or evacuate by vehicle, but carrying them for any distance doesn't make much sense to me. That's weight you could be using for something else.
A hockey/skate/bike helmet does make a lot of sense. It doesn't weigh much and getting hit in the head with even mundane things like falling rocks or tree branches can put you in a world of hurt. If you're looking for one, I'd make sure what you're buying is built to a protective spec. To my knowledge skate helmets are not built to meet any specific regulatory or safety standard (although Snell has a generic one they might meet). Bike helmets generally do have protective specs.
In my opinion,I would suggest that one acquire all the equipment, inc. a kevlar that can stop III-A. Sure it's a little pricey but it's not a bad idea to have one. You can always stash the damn thing if it turns out to be useless. Utimately,I will say this...spend money for a good skate, e.g the world's best http://bestskatereviews.com/review-ccm- ... -skates/,a helmet and hockey stick. If you get an old pagst style helmet, get the aero-tek or whoever upgrade.Just ensure they're sized right, and get the best suspension for it that you can.
