Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

They're more compact by the 24th century, if the armbands in "Timescape" are any indication. Keep in mind, those bands were used as "temporal shielding" to trap a bubble of space time around the wearer. Trapping a bubble of AIR shouldn't be that much harder, and reinforcing the field to stop weapons fire is simple enough that Worf could do it with a communicator.
