Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.


The Stealth Chest Guard is reminiscent of the clothing worn by Sheik and may be the current incarnation of the same type of Sheikah Armor that Sheik wore in Ocarina of Time (as Breath of the Wild is set after Ocarina of Time). Interestingly, this is somewhat supported by Sheik's Mask head armor which lacks any body or leg armor, as that role is presumably fulfilled by the Stealth Chest Guard and Stealth Tights which can be worn with the Sheik's Mask in order to make Link resemble Sheik.

Theory warning: Theories end here.
