Sometimes the weather at an event can make the wearing of armor impractical or even dangerous. Hot weather can cause heat exhaustion and dehydration, while wearing metal armor in extremely cold weather greatly increases the chances for hypothermia. Under these conditions those running the game may declare a “No Armor Day.” Until the “No Armor Day” is ended, players may use Armor Point tags as if they were wearing the armor that they would have normally worn that day. The player is then considered to be wearing that armor and get all of its benefits except for waylay protection.

At any time, a marshal may ask you to produce the armor that you would have normally been wearing to verify that you are using the correct amount.
