      This is not within my area, but I think that parts of the body that are most likely to help you survive are the most important to protect in an attack. The head is really important, but the heart and inner organs are vulnerable and perhaps more of a priority depending on the nature of the attack. On the other hand, protecting your head may help you to stay conscious and get away quickly when an opportunity opens up.
