You know, I never thought of the styling until you mentioned it, and it made me laugh, thanks. Fit is tight, but I realized that is better than loose material flapping in the wind. I would prefer looser fit around the cuffs to enable rolling up the sleeves. It packs into a pocket, is extremely light, and surprisingly warm. The hood fits under a climbing helmet (I think the hood is warmer than a hat). The thumb hole extension is a good idea (some extra protection from snow down the mitts). although mine came with one facing the opposite direction to my thumb. Back pocket is completely useless for climbing/hiking. I would prefer looser fit around the cuffs to enable rolling up the sleeves, and some front pockets.
