IMO if you have to ask then your not truly comfortable with your gear.

When I started riding there was no helmet law saying you had to wear a helmet, so of course I didnt wear one at all times. I look back on those days and thank God that he was watching over my young dumb butt.

I bought textile pants and jacket, the first little spill they got ripped up. I went to full leather riding gear and never had a problem with them, even in my worst accident only minor scratches on my skin, pain and discomfort a different story. I do not wear my leather gear at all times, I know I should but I do not. However my head is fully protected at all times.

I would say once you get all your gear on look at yourself in the mirror ask yourself if you feel safe and protected with what you have on. If you do great if not change out to better equipment as you can afford it.

If you are fully protected a friend should be able to use a 60 grit belt sander any where on your body for 1 second without harming you!

In my earliest experience riding, (Rupp Roadster) I had a really nasty crash with a car that I pulled out in front of, thanks to my then-undiagonsed epilepsy. I was having a petit-mal seizure, that affects (on me) my periphial vision, and I thought the car was a half-mile away.
She T-boned me, and I landed on her hood, helmet first.

Yeah, I am a believer in protective gear.

When I got my first motorcycle several years later, it was a Bell full face helmet, mostly because in 1976, they were king.

Todays anti-seizure meds are great. 15 years seizure-free!
