"But not nearly enough to allow an ordinary man to stand any real chance against the beasts."

Has arguably the best overall defense of any set of Attire in the game.
I think what the description is saying is that the set is only useful for Hunters and not normal human beings.

It might just be making a point to new players that but hulking armour
sets are not as important as they are in Dark Souls.
Because you're not an ordinary man
They’re not superhumans and they’re just wearing light armor.
Harrowed.
Rather than implying that the equipment is bad, supposedly, the line is meant to imply that the Church was fully aware the majority of Hunters would be slaughtered (regardless of equipment quality).

This further suggets that:

- Ludwig and the Church recruited Hunters cynically, as glorified cannon fodder, overstating their chances of individual survival

- The Church didn't even *want* too many Hunters to survive, because the Church secretly knew Hunters would be prone to transforming into Beasts themselves as a consequence of their work
Lookswise, this is easily my favorite set.
Both gender versions of this are top notch fashion souls, although the female version in particular is amazing imo.
This is literally the only thing in the entire game that will make me play a female character. The male version of this set looks stupid, but that female version is so *****ing cool. Use the Hunter's Cap instead for maximum badass.
Combine this with gascoine hat and some cowboy shoes. Ta dah!!!
What are you talking about?
The main attire set of my female hunter. It's cool.
What are the silver things hanging off the front?
Quicksilver Bullets. Just in case.
Spent quicksilver bullets, as a Hunter should have to look threatening.
Looks like a professional monster slayer. Goes especially well with Henryk’s cap, most gloves, and most leggings. All the parts of this set are quite conductive to adding a good bit of particular resistances without sacrificing too much of others AND still looking fashionable.

This is the best all-round set in the game.
Supposedly, the last sentence in the description is meant to imply that the Healing Church fully expected the majority of Hunters to be killed, regardless of their equipment quality.

This further suggets that:

- Ludwig and the Church recruited Hunters cynically, as glorified cannon fodder, overstating their chances of individual survival

- The Church didn't actually want too many Hunters to survive too many Hunts, because the Church secretly knew Hunters would be prone to transforming into Beasts themselves as a consequence of their work, with the most effective Hunters becoming the most dangerous Beasts of all
at least as far as Ludwig is concerned, doesn't match his dialogue. he doesn't seem cynical at all.
Betting they lied to Ludwig, Ludwig was pretty proud and confident in his hunters
