    You are correct, helmets and pads is a noun phrase, the direct object. "for protection" is a prepositional phrase, not part of the noun/direct object It modifies the verb "wear".

    There is no indirect object in the second sentence. "serious and lasting" is the predicate adjective phrase.

    Experience is the direct object of the verb give. "the offense and the defense" are indirect objects telling to whom the experience is given.

    Read about indirect and direct objects in the link above.
