Why is everyone suggesting heavy for better defenses, you can literally get armor capped with even the weakest light armors. I tend to stick with my Nightingale Armor.

Because you obviously reach the protection cap faster with heavy armor, so if you've playing a high difficulty setting (like master or even legendary) heavy armor will protect you a lot better in the early and mid-game.

Beside if you invest in heavy armor you don't have to spend as much perks as you would need in light armor.
