Templar/Mayan Armor...no hood?

So do the Templar and Mayan Armors allow you to wear a hood? Their pics in the menu don't show one, but I haven't seen them in game yet to be sure. The templar one would kinda make sense, but that seems like a bummer if so.

Didn't get templar yet, but mayan indeed has no hood.

Looks damn fine though.

How noticeable is the special feature of the Mayan Armor? Do you feel it's useful other than just looking cool?

Both of them, indeed, doesn't have hood. Sometimes Edward will do an animation of putting a hood even though it's not really there.

The effect of both outfits are noticeable. Mayan's special feature acts like when you found the ring that repels bullets in AC3.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, bit of a bummer that there's no hood. Which outfit's special ability do you feel is more useful in this one?

The one you get with templar keys takes less damage from enemies, and the mayan one can devert bullets like the shard of eden in AC3.

I like the Mayan outfit better in style and utility. I get shot by an off-screen enemy more often than I get hit with a melee weapon. But, ultimately, I went back to the Pirate Captain outfit. It just looks the best.

I personally really prefer the Privateer outfit to all of them, something about that all black outfit just seems so good. I have both the Mayan and Templar armors but I wish the mayan armor would be more gold in color than brass looking.

They both look amazing in game to me but if I had to choose between the two I would have to go with Mayan armor.

Yeah I think if the Mayan one had a hood that matched the colour of the skirt part, that would have been sick. I'm guessing you get it pretty late in the game anyway. Gonna save my cash to get the Pirate Captain outfit and rock that until I can get the Mayan one.

Doesn't the Mayan armor deflect bullets all the time, unlike the shard in ACIII which only did it sometimes?
