Does it shave off a percentage of damage? Does anyone know the calculation?

displayed armor rating = (worn armor rating + item quality) * (1 + 0.4 * (skill + skill effect)/100) *
(1 + Custom Fit or Well Fitted + Matching Set) * (1 + Agile Defender or Juggernaut) +
(shield armor rating + item quality) * (1 + 0.4 * (skill + skill effect)/100) *
(1 + Custom Fit or Well Fitted + Matching Set) + armor effects

hidden armor rating = 25 per piece worn

damage reduction% = (displayed armor rating + hidden armor rating) * 0.12

There you go friend. From: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Armor

Hope your math is good. :p

The bold bit is likely what you REALLY want though.
