Shinobi Faceplate Description
This faceplate does not restrict the field of vision while still protecting the chin and cheeks. It is part of a set of armor worn by ninjas when they undertake a mission likely to result in battle.
Usually, ninjas prioritize clothing that allows ease of movement as their chief activities are spying and sabotage which does not usually require armor. Even for assassinations, ninja will normally aim to fulfill their mission without having to engage in combat.
