I liked the Scout armor from 4/5, heck I think the helmet was actually an improvement over 3's variant.
I also liked Kelly's version of the EVA helmet and Locus was pretty cool too. Scanner would look great with battle damage...can't say much for any of the others, they just don't appeal to me. (Recon, my Helmet of choice, always looked off in 4/5).

Also, I know that they aren't from 4/5 but I do like that they incorporated the Mk.IV from Halo Wars, and I'd also like to see the ODST variant from H2A.
There are quite a few 343 armors that I'd like to see return in halo 6. I will actually be pissed if my favorite armor set, Enforcer, does not return. Besides Enforcer, I'd like to see Venator, FOTUS, Scout, Pathfinder, Recruit, Warrior, Air Assault, Anubis, Reaper, Dynast, Hellcat, Locus, Athlon, Shinobi, Viper, Teishen, Raijin, Prefect, Deadeye, Commando, Atlas, War Master, Wetwork, Void Dancer, Defender, Helioskrill, Mark IV (technically 343 was the first to make it wearable), and all the campaign armors. Right there are 36 good 343 armors. Combine that with all the good Bungie armor and you got 50-70 unique sets.
Well its a good idea

I loved this helmet from Halo 4. One of my favorites in the franchise!
I thought Prefect was a good Forerunner Style Armor Set. I'm actually surprised not to see it in Halo 5. It just sung Forerunner to me. Or even Reclaimer. It was amazing seeing the machinima's that came from it.
Hyabusa!
And the Halo 3 Scout
I would love to see the Raider DSTT skin from Halo 4 make a return. It's one of the main armor sets I am still working to obtain in Halo 4 since you have to do a lot to get it. I order to get (I think) the shoulders...you have to beat the campaign on (not sure if solo or not) Legendary. To get the torso (I think) you have to beat the Spartan Ops missions on Legendary (not sure if solo or not) and to get the helmet, you have to complete 1,000 matches of War Games.
All I need to do is finish the War Games....I think I am at like 840-860ish games the last times I checked. Halo 4 is what got me into the Raider armor set because of its wolf-like appearance and when I seen the DSTT skin essentially gave it a digital camo pattern, it was something I wanted to really try and get...so seeing that set make a return would be awesome...or just any more Raider sets in general.
You need to finish the campaign solo on legendary,
I did it, but I can't unlock the torso, I don't know why.
I love raider, I think it was the concept base for Locke's armor.
hyabusa with the katana
i want to see the hayabusa and all the mark armour sets
I just would like to see the classic Mark 6 return as Mark 6 Delta
oh yes please, i really miss that sleek yet very protective armour, not just because chief wore it, but it was so practical. The shoulder pieces were not obstructive, however there presence was still clear, unlike the 343 designs which make shoulders appear unprotected/naked undersuit on most armours, even the Gen2 Spartan II style armours.
None of Bungie's designs were practical. Imagine spreading your arms out like you're measuring your wingspan. Then raise your arms. You shoulders would get caught on your sides and don't even get me started with the space diaper. If there's one thing 343's armors have over Bungie's, it's practicality.
I Just want my classic ODST Look back. WITHOUT Reqs ffs
Hyabusa should return
I think the Halo 4 EOD armor set should return because we didn't see it in Halo 5. I would also probably like the Katana chest armor to return as well.

The design is owned by team ninja. Play ninja gaiden, that's where hayabusa came from.

It was a cool one off armor that won't return. Hate to say that. (Watch me eat my words when they release it next week or some -Yoink- like that).

I was only saying the practicality point for the Mark VI chief wore in H2/3. This armour. It has enough freedom of movement-for most areas- to be practical, but enough armour to be more protective than what 343 is designing, an alright balance if you ask me. Not to mention it actually looks good, unlike the vast majority of 343 armours, where most of the undersuit is exposed. The 343 armour only looks good with specially designed undersuits under it. E.g, compare helljumper in multiplayer on a standard undersuit, then compare to when it is on top of a specialised undersuit, i.e what buck wears in the campaign, it looks very different.

"space diaper" on the other hand, I agree with-sort of. It is unnecessary from the rear as it can easily limit running movement, which is indeed shown in the Mark VI link. However, the crotch plate on the front I think is ok, as the armour looks very awkward without it. Unless of course they implement built in armour in all undersuits to compensate, which is what they did for osiris and in Halo reach. That i think is the best way to go, and many 343 armours would look so much better if the undersuit was "thicker" where it is exposed-this is very prominent on Locke.
Id like to see the mk v delta body
id like to see another version of decimator
id like to see a mk iv gen 2 from halo wars 2
id like to see jfo, cqc, hazop,prefect an the halo 4 mk v come back as mk v bravo
id like to see cqb armor an h3 recon full body all brought to h5 an 6
Armor sets are nice but returning full customization is better.
I want hayabusa and katana to come back to halo, I worked for so long to get every skull and achievement to unlock them in Halo 3 and they looked amazing. You could also bring back the helmet effects like blue flames or orange flames which I really loved in Reach because it made you stand out and look awesome.
Halo 3s Recon. Particularly the helmet. The one from reach is nice (except for that attachment on top) but the one in 3 looked so menacing. The shape of the visor, the brow, it all looked like one intimidating scowling face.

It was bulkier than the recon helmet from reach, but not as misshapen as the one from 4 and 5.

Halo 3 recon will always be GOAT
I basically want all the armours(not really the reskins) to return besides a few exceptions I forgot the name but the duck looking one with sub woofers on the side is a main culprit
