my question is would this pass as part of a modern day mando?

To answer your initial question. Yes it could pass.

That is all.

I've never been a big fan of hoods, but I have to say, if this is implemented properly and the raggedy theme is carried throughout the kit, this could look very,very cool. Though I think it would look best if it was left down.

Go for it! The same arguments against the hood could also be used against capes and there are many approved kits with capes. Add a bit more character with the hood and have fun!

I know Hydra's build is cool and all but.. My opinion remains the same, hoods have no place over a helmet. But yes, as long as you can be approved with it go for it, its your kit after all.

Last time I was in a conversation like this I was senselessly banned for 24 hours, so I'm going to simply post my opinion and move on...

We"re costumers...we make what we feel is best for our build. If our Mando is a Mando who likes wearing a hood, then so be it. There are several things you can ask about hoods, and segeral answers you can give.

I see modern day soldiers wwearing ponchos that have hoods over their helmets. As stated before, it just adds character and may hold meaning. Why bother painting your armor, or wearing spikes or a loin cloth? Because it's artistic. Costume design and building is just that...it's a style and an art form. That's all.

But...don't use an Assassin's Creed Hood, you can do better :)

My thoughts on the modern soldiers wearing hoods over helmets are simple.  Those uniforms do absolutely nothing to keep your neck warm or to keep rain water out of your collar.  Is it an in universe problem?  Probably not, but it sure seems practical to me in real life.  Plus, there has to be some reason Arabs started wearing coverings on their head and neck in their desert environment.  I say, if you want it, go for it.

Really? Come on now... You can't compare RL soldiers wearing basically big hats and swelteringly hot uniforms, to Fantasy characters wearing completely environmentally controlled suits that can even help the person inside survive in the vacuum of space for short periods of time. I agree if you want to do it, do it. But call a spade a spade.
