Btw, NONE of the people in your GIF are wearing armor - do THEY look dumb???

The warriors in that GIF are wearing light armor. For some reason, folks seem to think that anything less than full-plate doesn't count. I don't think that anyone in Middle-earth was supposed to have access to full-plate armor (outside of Peter Jackson's films). The Dwarves of the Iron Hills didn't seem to have any:

Dain had come... Each one of his folk was clad in a hauberk of steel mail that hung down to his knees, and his legs were covered with hose of a fine and flexible metal mesh, the secret of whose making was possessed by Dain's people.. In battle they wielded heavy two-handed mattocks; but each of them had also a short broad sword at his side and a roundshield slung at his back. Their beards were forked and plaited and thrust into their belts. Their caps were of iron and they were shod with iron, and their faces were grim.

"He who lies artistically, treads closer to the truth than ever he knows." -- Favorite proverb of the wizard Ningauble of the Seven Eyes, the "Gossiper of the Gods"
