A Regiment of soldiers trained in these would make for an interesting subdivision of a otherwise famous mercenary company as well. "Calrissa's Cleavers" or the like.
Perhaps the moss is attached to the interior of the armor, which is otherwise cloth. It has an odd affinity for blood and that is how it manages to stop up wounds. If the moss was fully encased in cloth I can't see it havng much effect. Also, adding water to moss makes it heavy. Very heavy.
