This is some sort of buff for the "light armors" in Minecraft By light armors, I mean the flimsy leather armor and the flexible chainmail armor. The turtle shell will also be considered a light armor.
Mechanic: When wearing any piece of those armors or wearing nothing:
* The player's sneaking speed will be increased (from 1.3m/s to 2m/s). This will allow a new stealth playstyle for those who like to play more passive or carefully.
* The player's speed when drawing a bow will also be increased from 2m/s to 1.8m/s
* The player's speed when swimming will be increased from 2.2m/s to 2.7m/s (I mean, who swims with clothes on anyways)
* If you wear any piece of a heavy armor (iron, gold or diamond), this "light armored" effect will be removed.
This will make leather armor a bit more useful (as almost no one ever needs to craft it), and also make chainmail armor more valuable (as it can't be crafted). Archers will make a good use of these armors.
I decided not to include Walking and Sprinting speed, as increasing them will make these "light armors" a bit overpowered.
