What you wear is highly dependent on your build and playstyle. If you are regularly engaging in melee, usually armors with protection benefits are better than robes. At the depths you are hitting, orc archers are going to be a lot deadlier if you don't have at least some some protection, and the armor slot usually nets you 1d4 or 1d6 and is usually a pretty reliable find in the early depths.

Dipping equipment into potions? I know you can #dip in Nethack, but I'm pretty sure you can't dip in Sil. Maybe I am misunderstanding.
