Where I play my asphalt games everyone plays with shinguards, most have a girdle. Some do not wear gloves (I don't get this, but meh). I got hit with all kinds of pucks, where there wasn't any protection, and yeah, it hurts, but it's part of hockey. Yes, I know that the GB can break, what I am saying is that we did not break one, they just went too thin. On that note we thrown out a lot of the Propucks proposed here, because one of their pads fall off, and they were unusable from then on.

On a sportcourt I would not use a GB for a game, but on asphalt, with good players that is my first choice.
