Ratings - Altadorian Leather Armour
Price/Power (1/5)
Price is a lot higher than many of the cheap items it would be blocking, which is limiting.

Countermeasures (2/5)
Does some damage towards the Magic Gridlock Gun, Scroll of the Scholar and other similar spread out items. Likely deserves a 4th icon type or a percentage block to really be worth using.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Wanderers Cloak is generally the way to go, but if you really want to go crazy on the budget go for a Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield instead

Other Points

Final Thoughts
I do think this has very nice art at least- it is clean, simple and exactly what you'd expect.

A weapon that offers 8 icons of defense has no place in a game where 9+ icons weapons are now considered standard even for beginners. This weapon offers protection against several common icons, but the amount of protection it provides will be over run by cheap offensive weapons such as Scroll of Ultranova and Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer.

Parasol of Unfortunate Demise is a much better option as it blocks all Light icons, not just three. It also sports a cheap price tag as well as a small amount of Earth and Water defense. The Parasol also blocks icons in a different manner, making it a solid defensive choice for weaker pets and Lab Rats.

Price/power (1/5): Really doesn't do a whole lot for its price.

Tactical (2/5): Doesn't block that many icons, and the combination doesn't really counter anything either. Get a Leaf Shield, Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, or Studded Leather Cuirass instead.

Bonus (0/1): If this is what Altadorian soldiers wear, is it any wonder that they don't have the best army in Neopia?

Closing remarks: There are definitely better shields out there. Do yourself a favor and get one of those. Even a Virtupets X-514 Super Shield is better than this.
