This build works, everyone who says it doesn't has not tried to execute it properly.
My DH has about 25k health, min res is 420, max is 500. I am in act 2, and can take multiple hits from the snake vanishing mobs, or the cats.
The whole reason I use this build is because of the damage reduction, and because glass cannon is extremely frustrating when all the mobs jump/leap/burrow/cloak.

You can probably change around archery and steady aim, but basically with shadow power and a trap down you get 85% dmg reduction. With some HP armor and resistances you can slowly work through the act. You do sacrifice dmg upfront though.
