New skater, new gear...

So after having moved to Colorado after having lived in a part of Florida where the word 'ice' is about equivalent in usage to a question mark, I've decided to take up ice skating (and hopefully rec hockey, eventually). Yesterday, I picked up some used gear. This includes:

CCM Helmet (with cage, in quite good shape. Removed the cage for now)
CCM hockey pants
Mission Amp 6 skates still in good shape
Bauer shinguards in decent shape
Sherwood elbow pads in decent shape
Plus I have some snow gloves that should make for decent gloves for now

Seeing as I'm about as stable as a drunken kangaroo on skates, how much would someone here recommend wearing for lessons? Though I haven't fallen yet, I'm still getting used to the idea of going forward, and stopping is all but non-existent. Seeing as I'll likely be working in these things in lessons, and that I'm looking for work and don't want to look like I've been in a bar fight in any potential interviews, what should I protect?

I was figuring at least the pants and the noggin' protector.
