It also might be useful to know that AC doesn't do a heck of a lot in Angband... it's certainly better to have more of it than not, but -15AC at that stage of the game isn't a dealbreaker. As d_m said, it's easy enough just to power through it and find better stuff.

There are a few pieces of equipment that give immunity to acid, which AFAIK also makes you immune to equipment damage from acid. Although, by the time you get one of those, AC reduction is probably the least of your worries

tl;dr It does suck when gear with good side-benefits (resistances or buffs) gets chewed up, but it's probably the gentlest of the other "penalizing" effects (e.g. disenchantment, stat-drain, life drain, off the top of my head.)
