I don't know if this will still be true outside of the item preview, and I'm not sure if the hood will come back with the helm hidden, but it might be worth checking out.
Some of the visor headpeices do hide the hoods, but only if the head slot is visible. Hide your helm in options and your hood comes back.

Stupid thing is that it just proves the hooded gear models are capable of having the hoods removed on the fly

Was in a Warzone with a guy who had a no hood Jedi Heavy Armor that was moddable! It is called the Gladiator's Chestguard. No idea where it drops, but it is level 28.

Unfortunately it is not traditional Jedi robes, but a chest strap thing with a cape, but it doesn't have a hood and that will be good enough for me while I wait for BW to deliver these:

EDIT: Just looked at the piece at the Tatooine Commendations vendor. Unless I saw something different, this DOES have a hood. But I saw a Guardian wearing it in a Warzone and the hood was not visible. He had a mohawk and some shades-style headgear but not something that would ordinarily cancel out the hood.

Any idea how this happenned? Thank you.

Modding a medium Orange chestpiece from a Sentinel. As a dps I can do without the extra armor. Not sure if a tank can spare it. Still want the devs to giv us real hood down options.

Is baffling why they didnt put this in here i mean they gave the no helmet feature for people who wanted to see there face and hair but the hood defeats the entire purpose of it

I'm also lookin' for this armor. Has anyone seen it? Maybe in beta or something?
Seriously, it is in the Character Progression for the Jedi and I can't find it.

Edit:
I think I found the armorset, but I'm not sure if it is still in the game. Can someone confirm it's existence?

It's in the game, or at least something similar, but the hood is up, not down. No Heavy Jedi armors with the hood up exist between levels 19 and 50. BW needs to fix this ASAP.

Yeah, the orange Jedi Battlelord's set is definitely in the game. It looks like the character progression armor you mention, but with a sort of golden color instead of silver. I've picked up most of the pieces (chest/feet/gloves/bracers) on the market so far, but I have no idea where they're originally coming from. There's a blue PVP set on the coruscant vendor with the same name but different models as well.

They don't seem to be crafted or from social vendors, so I'm beginning to suspect it comes from high level enemy drops or something, as it has a level 45 requirement for the chestguard and I only ever see one piece at a time on the market.

Edit: and yes, it definitely has the hood up.

Agreed, this is very frustrating. Either put hoodless heavy robes in the game for guardians or make the no-helmet option apply to them as well. The code is there, would take all of 10 minutes to implement.

Heck, the starting chestpiece for consulars is a hoodless robe - all BW would need to do is make a moddable version of that!

Please ask Stephen Reid about Hood Down Guardian armor on Reddit on Dec. 28:

I would do it myself but I will be on an airplane.

You are the best person ever if you are able to do this. Thank you!
