Overview of the Hustle Runeword
Hustle is an excellent melee/ranged focused body armor with a huge 40% Increased Attack Speed and +20 Faster Hit Recovery, with some other nice features to go along with it.
Strengths of the Hustle Runeword:
Increase Attack Speed is a very rare trait for armor of any kind; only one other armor Runeword has it.
Fastest Run/Walk of any single item in game
Nice supporting cast of features
Weaknesses of the Hustle Runeword:
Not itemized well for a caster
No enhanced defense
Not that useful for Mercenaries
Assassins have a better option in just a few levels
Better Runeword armor options later will limit this armor's staying power

Hustle as an Armor runeword has the single highest Run/Walk of any single item in game -- even Enigma only has 45%. If moving quickly through content is a high priority for you, definitely give this one a closer look.
Unfortunately, while casters would love this feature (as well as the 50% slower Stamina drain), the other features just aren't as great. The 40% IAS and 20% FHR are both fantastic for melee characters and Bowazons, they just don't have much to offer casters. The FHR on this armor is good but unremarkable for its level; there's a lot of armor in this bracket with this exact percentage.Because of the lack of increased defense, it's not the best choice for Mercenary armor.
